What damages are recoverable in a car accident?

Getting to and from our destinations via motor vehicle is common is Washington and other states across the nation. While it is common and motorists are used to traveling on busy roads, this does not mean this occurs without issue. In order for the roadways to be safe, drivers must be safe as well. When a driver fails to uphold their duty to drive safely, this could result in a car accident and much harm to those involved in the crash.

Duties owed in an auto-pedestrian accident

Getting around by foot is not uncommon in Seattle and other cities across the nation. Walking to and from places helps cut down on traffic. However, it does not mean traffic is not around pedestrians. Although all forms of transportation can exist in a busy city, it does not mean there are not any issues present. When a driver fails to uphold their duties to drive safe and remain attentive, a collision could occur. Some of the worst automotive accidents involve pedestrians, resulting in severe injuries and even deaths.

Protecting pedestrian rights after an auto-pedestrian crash

While getting around by motor vehicle is common in Seattle and other cities across the U.S., many still choose to walk. Whether it is in the park, city sidewalks, residential area or parking lot, pedestrians will likely encounter vehicles. Although motorists have the duty to drive safely around other motorists, pedestrians and cyclists, this duty could be breached if he or she is distracted, intoxicated or reckless behind the wheel. When a pedestrian accident occurs, it is often the case that the motorist failed to uphold their duty, giving rise to possible legal recourses for the injured pedestrian.

How common are motorcycle crashes?

Motorcycle safety is essentially, a two-way street. In other words, motorcyclists are not the only ones expected to safely drive. Washington motorists are also expected to be attentive to these two-wheeled vehicles and drive safely around them. Unfortunately, many motorcycle accidents are the results of the negligence of other motorists. Whether one is not paying attention to their surroundings, fails to check their mirrors and blind spots, distracted or even intoxicated, a serious, possibly fatal, collision could ensue.
