Statistics show that there are more and more cars on the road each year. There are also more and more accidents each year, eclipsing an estimated six million car accidents, with 50,000 deaths and millions of injuries reported. Although we would like to think that everyone driving is experienced and safe, it's not true. Even the safest, most experienced drivers can find themselves in accidents. When you add in factors such as bad weather, pedestrians and bikers, bad roads, and others environmental factors, driving becomes a very dangerous activity.

When a car accident happens, it can be traumatic for everyone involved, no matter how serious the damage is. It may take years for someone to be comfortable driving again. When someone is injured, the process of insurance claims and police reports gets significantly harder to deal with. While insurance companies are battling, people and their families are suffering. During this difficult time, it may be in your best interest to contact a car accident attorney to help you through the insurance process, or to file a claim against the driver responsible for the accident.

Although car crashes can be caused by extreme weather conditions or a variety of other reasons, most often car accidents are the result driver negligence. In most cases, accidents can still happen even if one of the drivers had taken the proper precautions and followed the law. Negligence is when a driver does not take the proper safety precautions while driving and puts themselves and others in danger. There are a lot of different ways that a driver can be negligent. Driving too slowly or too fast, swerving, changing lanes excessively without signaling, driving under the influence, failing to obey traffic signs, and passing on the wrong side are all signs of negligence. With the growth and use of cell phones, talking on a cell phone or texting while driving have been seen as the cause for many accidents, and are other ways a driver may be found negligent, especially in Washington where it is against the law to do either while driving.
