Car Accidents And Negligence

It is to no surprise that car accidents are caused by human error and negligence. A car accident is almost never because the car malfunctioned at the worst time. However, even if the car DID malfunction, it can still be mostly traced to human error. Most cars malfunction because the owner chose to not maintain or check up on the car at the appropriate time. But that is beside the point, the point of discussion for this blog post is human error on the road. 

Human error is the main reason that car accidents happen anywhere, but especially in Miami. Miami is one of the most dangerous cities to drive in, and rightfully so. The roads allow for more than 3 lanes in some cases and have speed limits that are loosely enforced. This is especially dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists, that share or use roads that cars do. 

A common rebuttal is “it was their fault!”. Of course. Everyone is a good driver UNTIL they get in an accident. There are thousands of deaths annually and even more non-fatal, but threatening injuries that occur as a result of car accidents. So, if everyone is a good driver, why are there so many car accidents?

Car accidents are caused by human error and/or negligence. Human error is common, but it isn’t always negligence. In most cases, it is an honest accident without any willful negligence. For example, missing the car in your blindspot. That is an honest mistake. However, there are other cases of human error that are most definitely not just innocent errors. Texting and driving, calling while driving, looking away from the wheel while driving, and speeding. Although not limited to these actions, these are the most common forms of human error and negligence.
