According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, distraction plays a role in nearly all car accidents. This does not mean that distraction is the sole cause of most car accidents, but as a leading factor it is something that always needs to be investigated to help ensure victims of serious injury are provided the full compensation they are due.
If you or someone you love has been injured by a distracted driver, please contact the Hornbuckle Firm online or call our Bellevue, Washington office at (425) 679-0742 today to schedule your free and informative consultation.

Cellphone use is one of the most common types of driver distraction and, as such, has received much of the attention in the distracted driving debate. Indeed, texting and dialing numbers on a cellphone significantly increase the risks of causing a car accident, but these alone do not comprise the full spectrum of distracted driving.
In addition to cellphone use, types of distraction that can increase risks for serious injury include:
- Using a GPS or onboard entertainment system
- Eating or drinking
- Personal grooming
- Reading billboards
- Looking at scenery
