Car accidents take place on a daily basis throughout Seattle, Washington. However, until a car accident happens to a particular individual, that person may not think about the consequences of a car accident. The car accident can lead to many devastating outcomes. Not only can individuals see serious injuries, but many people will lose their lives because of a negligent driver.
Auto-pedestrian accidents, in particular, are very dangerous. Pedestrians do not have the same protections that vehicles. Therefore, injuries tend to be more severe. It is important, therefore, to understand the legal recourse that individuals have following an auto-pedestrian accident.
An auto-pedestrian accident can leave victims with many questions. People may be questioning whether or not they have the right to take legal action against a driver. They may question whether they have the right to collect compensation even if they were not in the crosswalk when the accident occurred.
Additional questions can include whether anyone other than the driver may be responsible for the accident, who will pay the medical bills and how long they have to take legal action against responsible parties.
Often these questions don’t have straightforward answers. It can be difficult for people without proper legal training to come to conclusions on these issues. This is where our attorneys can step in.
