Distracted Driving Awareness Month highlights dangers of act

Though 97 percent of drivers recognize that texting and driving is dangerous, 45 percent of those same people admit that they have either read an email or a text while driving within the last month, and 35 percent have sent an email or text. These survey findings demonstrate that distracted driving is still a cause of concern, as nine people die daily in auto accidents related to it.

We help seek compensation for catastrophic injuries

Washington residents likely have a routine set out for their day. This likely includes getting out on the roadways at different points during the day. Driving has become such a second nature to most people that they don't even realize how dangerous of an activity it is and the risks associated with it. it is only until someone becomes injured in an auto accident caused by someone else's negligence that one realizes the hazards on the road and the stark reality that a driver can be cautious as he or she wants, but if surrounding motorists are not careful, there is little that can be done to avoid an wreck.

Washington's pure comparative negligence laws

Becoming injured in an auto accident is a traumatic event for Washington residents and leaves emotional and physical scars that can take both a long time and a lot of medical treatment to recover from. Medical bills result from treatment and one way to recoup medical bills is by pursuing a personal injury lawsuit against the driver at fault for the accident. However, one reason accident victims hesitate from getting the justice they deserve is because they are also at fault in the accident and are unsure of the laws surrounding their crash.

A minor crash can cause major health and financial problems

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.
