When learning to drive, leaving enough spacing between vehicles on the road is very important. The driver needs to be aware at all times of what is happening with the vehicles in front, to the side and behind. The driver also needs to make sure to leave enough space in case of a sudden stop to avoid a front or rear end collision.
Many people rely on public transportation. Not only is it good for the environment, but it is also a great way to save for many commuters. With more commuters taking public transportation, such as buses, there are more pedestrians on or near busy roads. Unfortunately, that creates a higher chance of a pedestrian accident.
As the weather gets nicer, people are out walking and enjoying the warmer temperatures. Many families are out walking as well. Drivers need to especially look out for children when driving near crosswalks. Drivers need to prepare for the unexpected whenever pedestrians may be near.
You've been injured in an accident in Washington. Maybe you were riding a bus that hit another vehicle. Maybe you were a pedestrian crossing the street when a car. Maybe you were riding your bike and a car turned into you. However it happened, you were hurt. You've been checked out by a doctor and maybe you've started a course of treatment. Now you're looking for a lawyer to help you with your insurance claim. One question you probably have is "how long will this take?" The answer, as lawyers like to say is "it depends."
I often speak about what not to do after an accident, but there are certain things you definitely SHOULD do after a car accident in the State of Washington to protect your claim, and to make sure you get the proper treatment for any possible injuries.

At the end of a long day in the office, I like to get out of my head. When I'm working, my clients are my top priority and I give them my full attention. But when I go home, I need to decompress and use my brain in another way. Sorry clients, with rare exceptions I don't think about your case around the clock. I love spending time with my wife and my 4 year old son, I play fantasy baseball, and I volunteer with several nonprofit and political organizations. But one of my favorite ways to get out of my head is singing.
Getting into a car and driving seems so innocuous. Many people drive all of the time without even a thought. Intersections are particularly dangerous with many drivers turning or impatiently waiting for the light to change. Being cautious is not always enough, and accidents do occur.
