Tacoma Automobile Accident Lawyers Handling a Breadth of Crash Causes
There are countless ways in which automobile accidents can occur. Some causes tend to happen more frequently than others. The following is a list of some of the more common causes of automobile accidents in western Washington:
- Distracted driving − Distracted drivers cause accidents while talking on cellphones, texting with friends, reading emails, eating while driving, and other distractions. Motorcyclists are difficult enough to see on the road, so distracted driving is a major contributor to motorcycle accidents in Puget Sound.
- Drunk driving − Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol puts not just the driver and his or her passengers in danger, but other motorists and pedestrians as well.
- Tailgating − Very few drivers abide by the suggested three seconds of distance from the vehicle ahead, particularly in congested traffic. The result is a high risk of rear-end collision with the vehicle in front when the tailgating motorist is unable to slow down in time in the event of a sudden stop. Tailgating is also a common cause of devastating western Washington semi-truck accidents.
- Speeding − The signs along the road that read “speed limit” are not suggestions; they are intended to ensure the safety of motorists. Unfortunately, most drivers today fail to adhere to them. Many accidents are the direct result of speeding motorists.
