Bus companies responsible for accidents

Buses crisscross Seattle's streets every day. Along the way, some will get in bus accidents. When they do, who is responsible: the bus driver, the bus company or both? Under the law, employers are responsible for their employees. This rule applies even if the employer did not intend or approve of the employee's action.

Trends for fatal auto-pedestrian accidents in Washington State

Even if it is only for a short duration, most residents in Seattle are pedestrians at some point during the day. This includes motorists who become pedestrians momentarily while they travel to and from their parked vehicles. While traveling by foot is a healthy and eco-friendly way to get around, pedestrians frequently walk in areas where there is frequent automobile traffic. This presents many dangers to pedestrians, resulting in the possibility of serious and even fatal auto-pedestrian accidents.

Protecting the rights of motorcycle accident victims

For an inattentive driver, it is easy to overlook a motorcyclist; however, this is a dangerous situation for motorcyclists and motorists on roadways in Seattle and elsewhere. A negligent driver who fails to check their surroundings before changing lanes, slowing down or making a turn could collide with an oncoming motorcyclist or a motorcyclist traveling in their blind spot. A motorcycle crash is unlike other automobile collisions. Motorcyclists do not have the same type of protection most motorists enjoy in other vehicles. A lack of a hard exterior shell and interior safety features often makes motorcycle accidents very serious and even fatal.

How can motorists increase motorcycle safety?

Now that spring is in full swing and summer is just around the corner, motorcyclists have become a constant presence on the roadways in Seattle and elsewhere in the nation. While driving or riding on a motorcycle is a great way to enjoy nice weather, the unfortunate reality is that motorcyclists often face more serious dangers than other motorists on the road. The small size of these vehicles often make them difficult to see; therefore, motorists collide with them when they fail to see a motorcyclist in their blind spot or properly assess the speed and distance of an oncoming motorcyclist.
