As a Seattle car accident lawyer, I am strongly against any type of distracted driving behaviors that can cause devastating accidents. According to KIRO TV News, a vehicle crashed into a building and suffered severe damages. The accident occurred Saturday night in Federal Way. Emergency personnel arrived on scene to find the driver of the vehicle trapped inside the car. The driver was rescued and immediately taken to a local hospital with unknown injuries. No other reports of injuries were stated in the article. The building was evacuated due to the extensive damage suffered to the building during the crash. Police are still investigating the exact cause of the accident.
Distracted driving behaviors can be talking on the phone, eating, fatigued driving, driving while intoxicated or anything else that may cause you to take your eyes off of the road. Being prepared for any obstacle that the road may throw at you is important every time you get behind the wheel of a vehicle. Limiting distracted driving habits may decrease the number of dangerous collisions such as this one.
If you or a loved one have been seriously injured in an auto accident due to the negligence of another, then contact an experienced Seattle distracted driving accident attorney to further discuss your options. Distracted driving can be a very dangerous force on the road. The health and safety of your family is most important at this time and you may need legal representation to ensure that a dangerous accident that was someone else’s fault does not become a financial concern to you or your family.
