Preventing fatal car accidents

A car accident can be scary for any individual. The accident can cause serious injuries to those involved. However, in the most serious of situations, car accidents can be fatal. Motor vehicle accidents are the number one cause of workplace fatalities. They are also the number one cause of death to children and young adults between the ages of five and 24. For toddlers and older adults, car accidents are the number two cause of death in the United States.

Are there time limits in wrongful death cases?

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.

Fatal pedestrian accidents in Washington

pedestrian.pngSeattle streets are busy places. On any given street, people can find cars, trucks, bicyclists and other pedestrians. All of these people need to work together in order for everyone to make it to their destinations safely. However, sometimes motor vehicle drivers are negligent. They fail to uphold the standard of care necessary to keep everyone safe. While sometimes these negligent drivers cause accidents between cars or trucks, they can also cause auto-pedestrian accidents. In many of these cases, these accidents are fatal.

Washington pedestrian hit by a car. Do I have a case even if I was jaywalking?

jaywalking_man.jpg.size.xxlarge.promo.jpgEveryone knows that jaywalking is illegal, but many people do it anyway. Jaywalking is crossing the street at a time or location which is against the law. It could be crossing a street mid-block. It could be crossing at a crosswalk against the light. Many people, including myself, occasionally jaywalk because it seems safe to do so. If you look both ways and there are no cars coming, you should be able to cross safely, right?
