Car Accidents in El Paso

The city of El Paso is growing each year. With that growth means more cars on the road; which means the possibility of more car accidents. Car accidents in El Paso do occur daily. Sometimes there is fault on both sides while other times one person is the cause of it. However there are times where the person responsible for the accident can cause injuries to others involved in the accident because of their negligence.

Some of the most common factors or causes of car accident in El Paso include: disobeying traffic signs or signals, failing to signal while turning, driving above or below the posted speed limit, disregarding weather or traffic conditions and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

In addition there are times when car accidents do occur when another driver is not involved. One of the more common examples of this scenario is a defect in the car. A defect in a car refers to a flaw in the designing, manufacturing or even labeling of a product associated with the car. A few of years ago, Toyota had this sort of problem with the accelerator sticking in some of the newer models of their cars.

Other examples of car accidents not involving another driver include: poorly maintained roads, malfunctioning traffic control signals and improper design, maintenance, construction, signage, lighting or other highway defects.
