Distracted driving can trigger significant motor vehicle accidents. How common this driving behavior is here in Washington state is a very important issue.
Car accidents can have devastating consequences, some of which are not immediately evident. Victims of car accidents in Olympia and other cities in western Washington sometimes decline medical attention or a trip to the doctor after a crash in which they suffered no apparent injuries. That could be a mistake because the fact that there are no open wounds or broken bones does not necessarily mean that they are uninjured, and an evaluation by a doctor might uncover hidden injuries.
