What Do I Need to Know About Driver Error?

According to the National Highway Safety Administration 94% of all car accidents are due to some form of driver error. This carelessness on the part of drivers often results in serious damage other cars and their drivers. “Driver Error” that causes an accident can be grouped into four main categories:

  • Recognition Errors – Recognition errors occur when a driver becomes distracted. Texting and driving is a leading cause of car accidents in the United States, and a common example of driver error resulting from lack of recognition. Drivers who are concentrated on their smartphone cause many accidents that result in life-threatening injuries and even death.
  • Decision Errors – Decision errors are choices the driver makes that endanger the lives of fellow drivers. A decision making error that commonly causes accidents is driving too fast. Decision errors are different than performance errors (below). A decision error is the driver’s choice to drive a certain way, while performance errors are skill-based faults.
  • Performance Errors – Performance errors are skill-based errors that cause accidents. Improper steering is a common cause of accidents and is considered a performance-based error.
  • Non-performance Errors – Non-performance errors are those that cause accidents, but cannot be attributed to poor form. Falling asleep while driving causes countless accidents each year in the United States and is considered a non-performance error.

These instances of negligent driving seriously threaten countless drivers every year. If you were the victim of a negligent driver, it is crucial to hire a lawyer to receive compensation for injuries and costs you have suffered. Some damages you may be able to collect through a driver error claim include:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Property damage
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity, if you are permanently injured and unable to return to work
  • Disfigurement
  • Disability
  • Rehabilitative costs
  • Pain and suffering

Furthermore, if you tragically lose a loved one to a car accident caused by driver error, Robert Wilson & Associates can help you pursue a wrongful death suit against the responsible party. Through a wrongful death claim, you can recover damages such as final expenses and loss of support.
