Defending Against Driver Error Charges

Among the most commonly cited causes of car accidents in the U.S. are those involving some sort of driver error, a classification of offenses that generally involve some form of careless behavior on the part of a driver. If you were involved in a car accident that may be attributed to driver error in the Columbia area, you may need to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney to better understand what legal options you may have in order to recover any associated damages.

Examples of Driver Error

When drivers fail to pay full attention to their surroundings, they are more likely to engage in some negligent or reckless behavior, particularly driver error. As a somewhat ambiguous term, driver error cases typically result from one or more of the following behaviors:

  • Texting or using a handheld electronic device
  • Driving while fatigued, particularly when a driver falls asleep at the wheel
  • Engaging with passengers, distracting the driver’s focus from the road

Our Columbia legal team will do everything they can to help put this difficult period behind you as quickly as possible.
