Common Causes of Car Accidents in Knoxville, TN

In Knoxville, you may recover damages from an at-fault driver’s insurance company after an accident. There are many forms of negligence that may cause car accidents. The following are examples of careless conduct that frequently leads to car accidents in Knoxville:

Driving Under the Influence

There are few activities more inherently dangerous than driving drunk. Whether driving on a busy highway or an empty, impaired driving can lead to severe accidents. For example, drunk drivers will have slower reaction times and poor decision-making abilities when behind the wheel. Accordingly, motorists will be held liable for damages they cause while driving under the influence.

Speeding

Speeding is another common cause of car accidents in Knoxville. Drivers who are speeding may be unable to properly react to scenarios as they present themselves on the road. For example, a speeding motorist may be unable to recognize a stop sign or another driver changing lanes. Furthermore, accidents that occur at high speeds often lead to more severe injuries. Those who suffered damages because another driver was operating their vehicle at high speeds may contact our Knoxville car accident lawyers for help proving their claim.

Distracted Driving

Distracted driving is one of the most common causes of car accidents in Knoxville. There are three types of distracted driving. Drivers can either be visually, manually, or cognitively distracted. Some forms of distraction, such as texting and driving, involve multiple forms of distraction. The following are examples of activities that frequently lead to distracted driving accidents in Knoxville:

  • Scrolling social media
  • Texting and driving
  • Adjusting a radio
  • Adjusting a GPS
  • Eating
  • Talking on the phone
  • Talking with other passengers

Smartphones and other electronic devices strengthen the temptation to engage in such activities. Still, drivers should refrain from engaging in activities that take their hands off the wheel, eyes off the road, or mind off the task of driving. You may be entitled to financial compensation if you suffered damages in an accident caused by a distracted driver.

Reckless Driving

Tennessee defines reckless driving as a motorist’s willful or wanton disregard for the safety or persons or property. Activities that constitute reckless driving go beyond most common traffic violations. For example, drivers who engage in drag racing on public roads or travel the wrong way down a one-way street may be charged with reckless driving. If you have been injured because of a reckless driver, our Knoxville car accident lawyers can help recover compensation.

Other Traffic Violations

Lastly, drivers who cause accidents by committing other traffic violations can also be held liable for damages in a car accident lawsuit. Drivers are expected to obey traffic laws. The following are common examples of traffic violations that lead to car accidents in Knoxville:

  • Running red lights
  • Swerving out of lanes
  • Illegal passing
  • Driving on the shoulder
  • Failing to use turn signals
  • Tailgating
  • Braking abruptly

Our Knoxville car accident lawyers can help gather evidence to prove another driver caused a car accident by committing a traffic violation.

“This business helped me so much when I had my accident.”

This business helped me so much when I had my accident. I really did not know how to handle what I needed to do to take care of myself. When I contacted this law firm, they gave me a case manager. Her name was Sheila Hess. Sheila was amazing!! She handled all of my needs with the utmost of care and privacy. Sheila was always very professional and kind. I would totally recommend this business to my friends and hope that they would be lucky enough to get to work with Sheila.

Our case took a while and was a very long process, but this law firm took very good care of us. They made sure that we received all of the medical care that we needed and guided us every step of the way. This was especially true when the unexpected pandemic started and challenged all of us with the many adjustments we had to make.
