Common Fatal Driving Mistakes

Common Mistakes of Drivers in Utah

We have helped numerous individuals and families who have suffered serious injuries or deaths from negligent drivers whose mistake in driving resulted in serious consequences and harm to others on the road. While most drivers are guilty of making common driving errors, most do not cause serious injuries or deaths. However, any Utah Personal Injury Attorney at Salcido Law Firm, will tell you that in fact some common driving errors cause serious injury to others on the road. In some of the worst cases we have seen, families have lost loved ones in catastrophic accidents. Common fatal driving mistakes are discussed below in more detail.

Running A Red Light or Stop Sign

Believe it or not, people run red lights and stop signs fairly frequently. These cases often result in the most serious injuries or deaths. As you can imagine, drivers involved in these cases, usually never even see the other car coming before it is too late. The high rate of speed upon impact that often accompanies these crashes contributes to the damage involved. For all drivers in Utah, we strongly urge more attention to the road.


This is an obvious common mistake that we have all done. Surely, all drivers at one time or another drive at high rate of speed, but this can be very dangerous. In circumstances where a driver is driving so fast it becomes reckless, or in cases were a driver speeds under in climate weather conditions, fatalities can occur. If you or someone you love has been injured as a result of another driver’s reckless driving or speeding, we can help. Salcido Law Firm has represented numerous individuals through these types of cases.


Sometimes, when a driver is not paying attention to the road, they can drift into other lanes or even completely off the road. When a driver attempts to correct this action by quickly swerving or overcorrecting, the results can be devastating not only for the driver, but for others on the road as well. Overcorrecting and swerving are both common mistakes that result in serious accidents to many drivers each year in Utah.
