A car accident can often come without notice. With so many potential hazards and negligent drivers on the road, everyone should be cautious and prepared while behind the wheel.  Distracted driving, drunk driving, and speeding are all common causes of car accidents in Gwinnett County. If you have been injured in an automobile collision, contact an experienced car accident lawyer for help recovering compensation.

Distracted Driving

One common cause of car accidents in Gwinnett County is distracted driving. Distracted drivers may be texting, talking on their cellphones, adjusting their radio or generally not paying attention as they should while behind the wheel. Distracted drivers will often pull out in front of other drivers, rear-end them, or fail to yield to their right of way in an intersection.

Drunk Driving

A drunk driving case, in which a driver is intoxicated behind the wheel, could lead to serious injuries. Georgia allows punitive damages to punish the at-fault driver for the negligence of drinking and driving, which means that an experienced attorney may be able to hold a drunk driver financially liable for their recklessness.


Speeding is another common cause of car accidents. When a driver exceeds the posted speed limit or drives too fast for road conditions, they risk losing control of their car and colliding with a pedestrian or another vehicle. Speeding accidents can be especially dangerous because of the physical impact of a speeding car colliding with another person or vehicle.

Running a Stop Sign or Red Light

If somebody runs a red light, they create a danger of T-boning somebody else who is going through the light and has the right-of-way. When there is somebody who is going through a red light, they are usually traveling at a high rate of speed in order to catch the light, so there are often severe damages. In the same way, a driver may miss a stop sign and collide with an unsuspecting driver in the intersection who has the right of way.

Driving at Night

Due to the absence of a light, a driver has to be extra cautious when driving at night and realize that there are other drivers out there who are challenged as well. A driver may not see another car as easily as they would during the day, or their reaction times may be slower.

Driving in the Wrong Direction

Driving in the wrong direction can cause a head-on wreck, which is one of the most dangerous types of collisions. Drivers often end up going in the wrong direction if they are tired, intoxicated, or confused by signage while exiting or entering a highway.

A Car Accident Lawyer Could Help, No Matter the Cause of Your Accident

Anyone who is injured in a car accident due to another driver’s negligence should seek out legal representation. A lawyer experienced with the common causes of car accidents in Gwinnett County could begin to collect evidence, negotiate with insurance companies, and pursue compensation to the furthest extent possible. Contact an attorney today to get started.
