Renton S-Curve Afternoon Drive Time Accident | Injury Lawyer

Over 25% of all drivers were involved in an auto accident in a five-year period.  Excessive speed is the second most common cause of deadly auto accidents, which accounts for about 30% of fatal accidents.  Car crashes cost each American more than $1,000 a year; $164.2 billion is the total cost each year across the United States.

Renton, Washington’s infamous S-curves on Interstate 405 are known throughout the metro Seattle area as one of the most accident prone sections of roadway in the entire state of Washington.  Not only does the curving highway cause long commutes but the high number of motor vehicle accidents contributes heavily to long drive times for I-405 commuters. 
Rear-end accidents are common.  Many business commuters are distracted by their cell phones, reading email messages on their phone, and attempting to send text messages while driving.  Distracted driving is an accident waiting to happen.

On-ramps, off-ramps interchanges, and traffic moving in and out of high occupancy vehicle lanes at high speeds are another common source of accidents.

Determining liability in car accidents is often much more complicated than simply proving which driver was "at fault." In addition, most auto accidents involve insurance issues. For both of these reasons, getting legal guidance is particularly important when dealing with auto accidents. Contact the Davis Law Group to find out what your rights may be.
