Have You Been Injured in an Auto Accident?

By Ward Smith  Nov. 3, 2010 12:53p

Every year in the U.S. there are more than 30,000 fatalities and significantly more injuries caused by automobile accidents. The causes of automobile accidents are usually inattentive drivers, alcohol related, lack of maintenance on public or private roads and natural conditions such as rain, snow and ice. The results of these accidents are devastating injuries, deaths and thousands of families struck by tragedy. The long-lasting effects can be wage loss, emotional trauma, physical disfigurement and financial stress caused by enormous medical bills. Anyone who has been injured in an automobile accident should contact a Seattle auto accident lawyer to protect their rights and receive compensation for their pain, medical bills and loss of wages.

One of the biggest causes of automobile accidents is the unfortunate prevalence of drivers who are operating their vehicle under the influence of alcohol. Their impaired abilities such as eyesight and hearing combined with a drastically reduced reaction time cause drunk drivers to swerve, speed and crash into other vehicles. When combined with situations such as rainy weather or bad road conditions, the results can be disastrous injuries and painful medical operations and litigation. There are several factors that contribute to the damage a collision may cause including the speed of the vehicle(s), their design and size, the road design and the mental and physical impairments of the drivers involved.
