In a recent post, this blog discussed the case of a fatal car accident. In that accident, one person was injured and two people were killed in a collision between two cars in Sammamish. Accidents, like this one, often remind people just how dangerous it can be to drive in a car, especially when other drivers can be so dangerous. It may make people think about all the different injuries that can be caused when a person is in a car accident.
Road conditions are always changing on Washington highways, streets and roads. Drivers need to constantly pay attention to the changing conditions and adjust their behavior accordingly. With the right attention, drivers can safely navigate a variety of difficult driving conditions including rain, snow or fog. However, when negligent drivers fail to take into account road conditions, a serious car crash can result.
Drivers in Washington State often encounter drivers who fail to follow the rules of the road. This might amount to motorists speeding, crossing the centerline, rolling through a stop sign or using their phone. In some cases, this form of negligence does not affect the driver or those traveling on the roadway. Despite the fact that these careless behaviors might not result in an accident, they could easily be the cause of a serious car crash. This is why all drivers should always uphold their duty of care while behind the wheel.
Drunk drivers are a hazard to everyone on Seattle's roadways. Yet, every year many people get behind the wheel of their car and drive drunk. When this happens, serious drunk driving accidents can occur that can leave people with serious injuries. Around the holidays, in particular, drunk driving accidents are common.
Reckless drivers don't often care about the people around them. They break traffic rules, drive drunk and put people in danger. When people drive carelessly, serious car accidents happen.
Seattle residents hear about car accidents on an almost daily basis and the regularity of accident reports can make it easy to forget that the impact of a crash can affect injured victims long after media reports have become yesterday's news. The story of one Everett woman serves as a vivid reminder of the extent of physical pain and suffering that may result from a serious car accident.
