Common Fort Myers Auto Accident Causes

Determining liability in Florida car crashes

During our more than 40 years of combined experience, the automobile accident lawyers at Viles & Beckman, LLC have witnessed the variety of factors that contribute to car accidents. The same negligent actions are responsible for most crashes. In most cases, accidents are avoidable.

Common causes of auto accidents include:

  • Texting while driving
  • Cellphone use
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving while under the influence of alcohol (DUI)
  • Prescription drug abuse
  • Tire blowouts
  • Brake failures
  • Slick and wet roadways
  • Fires and smoke
  • Flooded streets
  • Highway debris
  • Poorly maintained roads
  • Construction

Suing the negligent parties responsible for your injuries

Determining who to sue is the first step in filing your claim. Our team is skilled at tracing the cause of the accident to the responsible parties. We often sue multiple defendants, such as:

  • Careless drivers of vehicles involved in the crash
  • Reckless drivers of other vehicles who contributed to the crash, such as rubberneckers
  • Incompetent mechanics who failed to properly repair your car
  • Manufacturers who produced defective automobile parts
  • Municipal departments responsible for road maintenance
  • Construction crews that block or slow traffic

Even if you are hit by an uninsured or underinsured driver, we can often successfully pursue those people or companies who are indirectly culpable. For example, we might sue a bar that over-served a drunk patron who then ran into you. If you slammed into a car because smoke obscured your vision, we might sue the person who started the fire or the developer responsible for the overgrown land that fueled the blaze.
