Driver Error

America has long been called a country with an automobile culture, and there is little evidence to the contrary. With millions of Americans pouring into highways, residential streets, and alleys on a daily basis, it is easy to see the importance of cars in the average American’s life. However, as safe as a person can feel behind the wheel, the dangers on our roadways are multiplied by driver errors. Even though motor vehicles have been improved upon as each new car generation is released, drivers still make poor choices on the road.

If a negligent driver has caused you injury, contact the Charleston car accident attorneys of the Steinberg Law Firm today by calling 843-720-2800 to discuss the specifics of your claim with an experienced legal professional.


A driver’s responsibility on the road is to follow local and state traffic laws, including speed limits and lane restrictions, and to properly maintain his or her vehicle. Unfortunately, some drivers fail to take these responsibilities seriously. The following driver errors may lead to collisions:

  • Ignorance of traffic laws
  • Vehicle maintenance negligence
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Drunk driving

Car accidents can result in serious injuries and property damage. The consequences of a poor driving decision can lead to severe bone fractures, lacerations, and trauma, as well as specific health concerns like whiplash. In conjunction with these physical injuries, the psychological damage that can follow a particularly destructive accident can mentally scar a person for the remainder of his or her life.
