Understanding the Impact of Car Accidents
Automobile accidents are a leading cause of severe injury and death in the U.S. Head-on collisions, rollovers, and roadway departures can lead to the most life-changing of injuries including paralyzing spinal cord injuries, loss of limbs, severe burns, or traumatic brain damage. Senseless accidents happen for many reasons, but negligence is often to blame. Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is a known catalyst, and distracted driving is an increasingly common cause.
As of July 2017, Washington’s distracted driving law made it illegal to use a handheld cell phone or similar device while driving. In addition to preventing accidents, these types of laws can make a difference in an injury liability claim. If the other driver is cited for drunk, distracted, or reckless driving, negligence or wrongdoing is clearly established.
Do You Need an Attorney?
If you are involved in a serious car accident, your immediate priorities should be calling the police and seeking medical care. Obtaining information from the other party or parties is also very important, and contacting an attorney right away can be advantageous.
Insurance adjusters, who will be focused on keeping claims costs down, will often try to pin blame on you or downplay your losses to get you to accept a quick, low-ball settlement. An attorney looking after your interests can prove invaluable. Attorney Styles or a member of our team can even meet you at your accident scene to begin gathering evidence in order to prove the cause of the accident.
Pinpointing cause is crucial to the resolution of your insurance claim. Since Washington is a pure comparative fault state, you can receive compensation for your injuries even if you are partially to blame for an accident. However, your degree of fault has a direct effect on the amount of compensation you can collect. If the other party was mostly or entirely to blame, you want to be able to prove this fact.
