Lane change crashes are caused by drivers changing traffic lanes, particularly on highways and other high-speed roads where drivers change lanes frequently.

Drivers must be vigilant when changing lanes, use their turn signals, and check their mirrors and blind spots to avoid causing a crash.

Some common causes of lane change accidents include: inadequate signaling, impaired driving, failure to check blind spots, and speeding and aggressive driving.

Determining fault in this type of accident depends on the specific circumstances of the crash, based on the driver who was negligent.
