What Leads to Federal Way Car Wrecks?
Although many people throughout the country refer to motor vehicle collisions as “accidents,” in many cases car “accidents” are actually events that could have been prevented had one or more individuals involved exercised greater care in driving. In other words, many car collisions are the product of one or more drivers’ reckless or careless decisions, such as:
- Texting while driving, using a cellphone while driving, or engaging in other behaviors or actions that cause the driver’s eyes and/or attention to be distracted from the task of driving safely;
- Consuming alcohol, illegal drugs, prescription drugs, and/or over-the-counter medications prior to driving such that the driver is rendered unable to drive safely;
- Ignoring or disregarding (whether intentional or otherwise) traffic lights, traffic control signs, or other “rules of the road” by speeding, failing to yield the right of way, or engaging in other similar acts of offensive driving; and/or
- Failing to maintain one’s car in a reasonably safe condition.
In addition, in some situations a car wreck may be the result of one or more car defects present in one of the vehicles. The driver of a defective vehicle may not know his or her vehicle even has a defect until it is too late. Whether a crash is caused by a miscalculation, reckless behavior, or a vehicle defect, one thing is certain: Had the responsible party exercised a greater deal of caution and care, the accident and the resulting injuries could likely have been avoided.
