- Driving an automobile too fast or too slow

- Not signaling when turning
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol

In some cases, a car crash is caused by a defect in the automobile. If an automobile manufacturer creates a defective car part that causes injuries, the manufacturer may be held liable for damages. A mechanical failure may also be the result of negligent repairs to a vehicle. The auto repair shop or the individual who improperly repaired the automobile may be liable for injuries sustained.
