Causes of Car Accidents
Although nearly anything can cause a fatal car accident, some of the most common forms of negligence include:
- Distracted driving
- Careless and reckless driving
- Fast driving
- Aggressive driving
- Running stoplights or stop signs
- Construction zone hazards
- Product defects
- Big truck driving violations
- Abnormally dangerous railroad crossings
There are also many cases of defective vehicles and parts that can result in fatalities. Defective seatbelts, airbags, tires, or electrical systems can cause a serious car accident on the highway or neighborhood street.
Wrongful Death in Car Accidents
There is no easy way to explain to a family member their loved one was killed due to the negligence of another driver. Like most things in life, the family member may be told that time will help heal the pain of their loss. However, the experienced car accident attorneys at the Duncan Firm want you to know that, even though nothing can bring your loved one back, you deserve justice and compensation – the only things that may turn this terrible wrong into something better.

- Funeral costs
- Medical costs for any hospital care of the victim
- Loss of companionship and mental anguish
