Driver Errors & Auto Accidents
OUR AUSTIN CAR ACCIDENT ATTORNEY CAN PROTECT YOUR RIGHTS
The majority of auto accidents are caused by unsafe drivers, whether they are drunk driving, reckless driving, or simply making thoughtless mistakes. Although the last two may seem identical, driver error can be distinguished from reckless driving. Where reckless driving typically implies a driver’s conscious decision to act dangerously, driver error is unintentional though equally hazardous.
Although careless drivers do not make mistakes on purpose, they can and should still be held accountable for any accidents they cause. At the Law Offices of Vic Feazell, P.C., our Austin car accident lawyers can help people in the Austin area and throughout Texas determine their rights and options if they have been hurt by a thoughtless driver.

COMMON TYPES OF DRIVER ERROR
Driver errors can range from simple missteps that do not result in accidents to critical mistakes that can lead to deadly collisions.
Some of the most common types of driver error include:
- Confusing the gas pedal with the brake pedal
- Failing to check mirrors when changing lanes
- Failing to merge properly
- “Zoning out” while driving
In these situations, the negligent driver who caused the accident may be obligated to cover the victim’s auto repair costs, medical bills, lost wages, and other damages. This is because licensed drivers are expected to avoid these thoughtless mistakes, no matter how unintentional they may be.
