Cases Covered in Washington
There are many different types of personal injury cases – they don’t all fall into the same categories or require the same aspects. We will stand by your side no matter what type of personal injury you have sustained.
Auto Accidents: In 2016, there were 508 fatal accidents and approximately 1,800 or more injuries. If you have been injured in an accident due to the reckless or negligent actions of another party, you may be able to compensate for your losses. Some of the reasons why auto accidents occur include drunk driving, failure to yield, left-turn accidents, and so many more. Speeding takes the lead in many crashes, and each state struggles with its drunk driving rates as well. Preventable behaviors could stand at the forefront of many accidents, which is why these cases are taken so seriously because drivers must always abide by the law at all costs. We can help in every step of your case, from the initial police report to documenting your medical expenses from beginning to end, and so much more. If a driver owed you a standard duty of care and failed to abide by this standard, you could be compensated for your losses.
Motorcycle Accidents: Motorcycle accidents are almost always serious to the rider because motorcyclists are offered less in way of protection from accidents. If you have been injured, you may wonder how to make your claim. You may have received broken bones, road rash, traumatic brain injuries, and so much more. Drivers fail to look out for motorcyclists in some cases, which can lead to devastating results. If you have been injured, you could hold a driver liable if you can prove that negligence was at the forefront of your case.
Pedestrian Accidents: Pedestrians are also owed a special duty of care by drivers who share the roadways. Pedestrians are at a loss when it comes to protections on the roadways because they are not inside a vehicle. If a driver was not watching out for you and you have been injured as a result, you may have a claim. There are many common reasons why these accidents occur, from distracted drivers who claim to not have seen the pedestrian, to left-turn accidents where drivers are looking straight ahead instead of to the side. You may be able to receive the compensation you deserve.
Truck Accidents: Truck accidents are extremely common in all parts of the U.S. They usually do not happen on the same level as car accidents, but you should always be prepared nonetheless. Truck drivers have blind spots, which means that drivers are not always easily seen and can be disregarded on the roadways. Because of the sheer size of trucks, it is not uncommon to see catastrophic injuries in these cases. We can help.
Wrongful Death: You may have lost your loved one in a wrongful death case, which means that you may be able to bring a claim on their behalf. You can bring a wrongful death claim if you are eligible to do so, receive compensation for many aspects when your family has been affected, and so much more.
There are many other common types of personal injury accidents that we specifically cover in Washington, from DUI accidents to commercial vehicle accidents and drivers who rideshare. No matter how you have been injured, you may have a right to compensation if you can prove that another party acted with negligence on the roads. Call us for more information on how we can help.
