Contributory Factors for Car Accidents in Ireland
Garda reports indicate that in road fatalities driver error is the cause of 90% of car accidents in Ireland, pedestrian error stands at 6%, and 3% are caused by poor road conditions. Excessive speeding, fatigue, and alcohol consumption are the main causes cited within the human error category.
Speeding is the greatest contributory factor for car accidents in Ireland, and Garda statistics for the last 2 years show that we still have a culture of law breaking in relation to drink driving, which is the second highest cause of road deaths.
Negligence in Car Accidents
To make a successful car accident compensation claim, you need to prove that another person’s negligence led to your injuries. This could be the driver of the vehicle you were travelling in, a third party driver, or even a pedestrian if they stepped out in front of the car causing the crash. This is why a Garda report can be vital – because they will normally list the circumstances and possible cause of the car accident.
