Ways that Other Drivers are Negligent on the Road

Even when drivers are operating their work vehicles safely and carefully, they can still be involved in a motor vehicle crash that occurs because of another driver’s negligence. There are many ways that other motor vehicle operators can drive in a careless and reckless manner. Some of the most common examples of negligent driving include the following:

  • Exceeding the posted speed limit and violating other rules of the road, such as running stop signs and red traffic lights, failing to use a turn signal, tailgating other vehicles, or weaving in and out of traffic without using a turn signal
  • Engaging in distracted driving, such as by looking at a cell phone or electronic device while trying to operate a motor vehicle at the same time
  • Engaging in intoxicated driving that impacts the driver’s ability to operate the car safely in many different ways

If you have been involved in one of these types of collisions while operating your work vehicle, call The Law Firm of David C. Chavez, LLC now at 505-865-9696 to assist you with seeking compensation from the responsible driver. In some instances, such as when the at-fault driver caused the accident while he or she was also on the job, you might also be able to pursue a claim against the other driver’s employer.
