What Are Common Causes Of Car Accidents?

Seattle’s traffic is legendary, and our city regularly tops the list of the most congested major cities in the United States. About 80 percent of Seattle residents commute to work by car, with an average commute time of nearly half an hour.

All of that driving increases the chances of getting into a car accident. And some accidents result in catastrophic injuriess and major expenses. If you’ve been injured in an accident in the Seattle-Bellevue area, the car accident attorneys of The Hornbuckle Firm are here to represent your best interests.

There are as many causes of car accidents as there are drivers on the road. But some of the most common causes include:

  • Reckless driving
  • Speeding
  • Distracted driving
  • Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Failure to obey traffic laws
  • Vehicle malfunction
  • Adverse weather conditions
  • Poorly maintained roadways
  • Driver fatigue

Every driver assumes responsibility for his or her actions when getting behind the wheel. And when a motorist acts negligently, he or she must be held accountable for the damage caused by these actions. At The Hornbuckle Firm, we will fight aggressively to help you recover the compensation you deserve.

If you’ve been the victim of a car accident, please contact The Hornbuckle Firm today to schedule your free consultation. We serve clients in Seattle and Bellevue, Washington, and we accept cases from all states across the country.
