Backup car accidents in Seattle may require legal action

Seattle residents may be aware of the dangers associated with backup car accidents. These accidents occur when drivers are backing up without carefully looking to ensure that no one is behind them. In these cases, a large number of people can be injured. Victims can include other motorists, motorcyclists and pedestrians. Often, children are victims of backup accidents. They are difficult to see since they are smaller, but these accidents are often avoidable if drivers are careful.

Parents in Washington State often want to do everything they can to protect their children. This becomes a little harder when teenagers get their driver's license and hit the road.

Injured on a King County METRO Bus - Do I need a lawyer?

Metro bus.jpgYou were minding your business, just trying to get home from work on your daily bus commute. Perhaps you were reading a book, or listening to music. All of a sudden - BOOM! - The bus was in a collision and your body was thrown around. Perhaps a part of your body hit a post, a window, or a part of a seat. Perhaps your neck or back were strained by the impact. Either way, you are hurt and it's getting worse. What do you do next?

Don't speak to the insurance company!

recording.jpgBefore you can settle your claim, you need to know what it's worth. Before you can know what it's worth, you need to know how the injuries affect your life, how long your treatment lasts, and how much your bills are. Although there's no way to know those things until your treatment is finished, the liability insurer (the defendant's insurance company) will want to speak to you right away, and it will possibly offer you a settlement, before your treatment has concluded.

In a car wreck while on the job

car wreck.jpgWe handle lots of auto claims. Occasionally we get a client whose job involves driving and who was hit by a careless driver while she was on the job. In some ways, these claims are just like any other claim, but in several important ways, they are different.

Drowsy Driving Kills

drowsy-driving.jpgOn my birthday in 1989 I got the terrible news that my friend Tina Middleton was killed in a car accident.

She fell asleep at the wheel of her car and drove into a tree. The impact killed her instantly.

Washington accident kills 1 and injures 1 as driver runs red

Driving is so commonplace that it can be easy for Seattle residents to forget how dangerous it can be. When drivers failed to follow simple traffic rules they put everyone on the road at risk. These rules have been created for a reason and play an important part in preventing car accidents.

Increase your uninsured motorist coverage. Please!

auto insurance.jpgA few months ago I sat down with a man who was looking into a personal injury claim on behalf of his wife. She had been driving in Mukilteo when a drunk driver crossed the center line and hit her head on. She suffered multiple injuries, but the most severe injury was to her ankle. She had already undergone several ankle surgeries and she was looking at a long and painful recovery. It was likely that she would suffer a permanent disability as the result of this incident.

Signs of brain injury after a Washington Car Accident

brain injury.jpgI have been representing injury victims for a long time. I have seen all kinds of injuries, but few can be more devastating than a brain injury. You can suffer a brain injury in a car accident even if you don't hit your head on anything, and even if you don't lose consciousness. Often a traumatic brain injury (TBI) will go undiagnosed for some time after a car or motorcycle accident. This delay in diagnosis and treatment can worsen the impact of the injury and make the recovery more difficult. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, it's important to determine whether a brain injury has taken place.
