Some of the most difficult motor vehicle accident cases are those that involve a hit-and-run driver. Not only are there challenges when it comes to evidence, but it also makes an unfortunate event all the more disturbing when a driver makes the choice to run from responsibility.
A Washington state newspaper recently checked in with an engaged couple who survived a motorcycle accident six months ago when an impaired truck driver slammed into them. The newspaper found that although the couple made it through the horrific accident, they continue to struggle with severe injuries and depression.
When many people think of a motorcycle crash, they imagine a bike speeding along the highway out of control only to be upended by any number of fateful circumstances. Such accidents often result in serious injury or death. But the truth is there are many motorcyclists who obey the speed limit, don't drink and drive and wear protective gear. And unfortunately, they sometimes get hurt by the negligence of other motorists. On October 10, a 50-year-old man on his motorcycle was seriously injured in downtown Seattle, at the intersection of Third Avenue and Pike Street.
