Common Causes Of Lane Change Accidents

Lane change accidents can be the result of:

  • Failing to signal lane change
  • Failing to check for vehicles in the next lane
  • Relying only on mirrors to locate vehicles in the next lane
  • Moving into the lane in a way that causes following traffic to stop suddenly
  • Making a lane change too quickly in poor driving conditions such as ice, snow and rain
  • Crossing multiple lanes to get to an exit

The injured driver may have been forced off the road, sideswiped or involved in a direct collision with the offending vehicle. Injuries may be obviously catastrophic or may be hidden for some time.
