Distracted Driving Accidents

Powerful Advocacy for Over 15 Years in the Greater Seattle Area

Lynnwood Distracted Driving Accident Attorneys

Distracted driving is a serious problem on our roadways that continues to cost far too many lives each year. Distracted drivers simply can’t pay adequate attention to their primary job of driving safely, and dangerous traffic accidents are often the result. If another driver’s distraction leaves you or someone you love injured, discuss your case with an experienced Lynnwood distracted driving attorney today.

Distracted Driving Explained

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shares that distracted driving can take virtually any form and amounts to anything (other than driving safely) that captures a driver’s attention while behind the wheel. Further, distractions can be classified into the following three categories:

  • Visual distractions that take a motorist’s eyes off the roadway
  • Cognitive distractions that occupy a motorist’s thoughts
  •  Manual distractions that take a motorist’s hands off the wheel of the vehicle

Texting has the singular distinction of combining all three categories into one whopper of a distraction. In fact, it’s estimated that writing or reading a text takes an average of about five seconds, which is tantamount to traveling the length of a football field (when traveling at highway speeds) with one’s eyes averted from the road ahead. This is obviously an exceptionally dangerous practice.

Distracted Driving Statistics

CDC also share a series of significant statistics related to distracted driving that include all of the following:

  • Every day in the United States, there are about eight distracted-driver-related traffic deaths.
  • In 2018, more than 2,800 people lost their lives to distracted driving.
  • In 2018, about 4,000 people suffered injuries as a result of distracted driving.
  • About 20 percent of those killed by distracted drivers are not inside a vehicle at the time of the accident, including pedestrians, bicyclists, and runners.
  • On average, about 3,000 people lose their lives as a result of distracted driving every year

Your Damages

Distracted drivers often wreak considerable damages, such as the following:

  • Property damage to your vehicle
  • Medical costs that can extend from emergency care at the scene of the accident to surgery, after-care, and well beyond
  • Lost wages that can include a decrease in your earning potential
  • Emotional and physical pain and suffering that can be exceptionally difficult to navigate and overcome

Obtaining a claim settlement or court award that covers your losses in their entirety is essential to your ability to successfully traverse the path toward physical, financial, and emotional healing.

It was great hearing from multiple people in the firm, believe I talked to both partners during the process. Never found myself waiting for any information, got updates when I wanted them. Felt like the entire team was involved in the process, no matter what size the case is! Appreciate the way the final explanation letter spelled everything out. Thank you for that!!

Everyone was so great at answering all my questions & guiding me through the process.

Thank you so much!
