Common Causes of Car Accidents in Bensalem
Car accidents are common enough in Bensalem and the surrounding area that they can be caused by any number of factors. Despite this, certain driver behaviors and conditions can increase the likelihood that a car accident will occur. Some of the more common causes of car accidents include:
- Alcohol and drugs. Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is both illegal and dangerous, and frequently contributes to car accidents.
- Distracted driving. Technology and a myriad of other distractions often cause car accidents. When a driver takes his or her hands off the wheel, eyes off the road or simply fails to pay attention to surrounding conditions, that driver is more likely to cause a car accident.
- Cell phones. Cell phone use while driving is a type of distracted driving. Pennsylvania has a no texting law that prohibits a driver from texting while driving, but cell phones also contain videos, emails and a host of other distractions—even taking one’s hands off the road to use a cell phone can make it more difficult for the driver to avoid potential accidents.
- Speeding. When a driver is speeding, he or she may not have the time that is necessary to stop the car to avoid an accident. Problems with speeding include more than merely driving over the speed limit—many accidents occur because one driver is driving too quickly for the current road conditions.
- Driver error. Some car accidents are caused by simple mistakes made by a driver—not seeing a stop sign, failing to yield or turning the wrong way down a one-way road can easily cause a car accident.
- Road conditions. Dangerous or poorly marked construction zones, turns, and intersections, as well as weather conditions, can all cause a serious car accident.

The source of your compensation will depend upon the severity of your injuries. In some cases, insurance coverage will be sufficient so that a lawyer’s role would only involve negotiating to get you the maximum possible compensation for your out-of-pocket medical expenses and economic damages. However, insurance companies may not pay for pain and suffering, and most policies contain a liability cap. In more severe cases, a lawsuit may be necessary to recover additional compensation from the responsible parties. Our lawyers will evaluate your case, and investigate to determine who may be held liable in your particular case.
No, and you should generally consult with a car accident attorney before giving a recorded statement. While you are required to cooperate with your own insurance company, you are not required to provide detailed information to the at-fault driver’s insurance company. In general, it is best to speak with an attorney before providing any statements to either insurance company.
