Please call our lawyers today for the support you need.

Common Causes of Car Accidents

Car accidents are almost always preventable and would not occur but for the negligence of one of the parties involved. Common causes of car accidents include:

  • Speeding;
  • Distracted driving;
  • Drunk driving; 
  • Aggressive driving;
  • Running red lights and stop signs;
  • Failing to yield;
  • Fatigued driving; and
  • Otherwise breaching any traffic laws or traffic signs.

Liability for a Car Accident

Washington is an at-fault car insurance state. This means that when a crash occurs and drivers suffer monetary damages, the driver who was at fault for the crash is responsible for paying for it. This is why drivers in Washington are required to carry insurance – at least $25,000 in bodily injury coverage per person, $50,000 in bodily injury coverage per accident, and $10,000 in property damage coverage per accident. Typically, an injured party will bring a claim against the at-fault party’s liability insurance policy following a crash.

Shared Fault in a Washington Car Accident

It’s important to know how the state’s shared fault laws may impact the outcome of your case. If you contributed to your accident and are found to be partially at fault for the crash, your damages amount can be reduced. According to the Revised Code of Washington Section 4.22.005, a plaintiff’s damages will be reduced in proportion to their degree of fault, but they will not be barred from recovery if they contributed to their own injuries. In other words, if you are found to be five percent at fault for your accident, then you can only hold the other party liable for 95 percent of your damages.
