Car Accident Attorneys in Seattle

Hurt in a Car Crash?

Seattle has 608,660 residents, as of the 2010 census, and is the largest city in the northwestern United States. It is the county seat of King County and a major coastal port city located on a narrow isthmus between Lake Washington and Puget Sound over 83.9 square miles. Seattle has an illustrious history, from becoming the center for Boeing aircraft production after World War II to being the birthplace of Jimi Hendrix and the popular coffee culture of Starbuck’s. More recently, the city has become a model of sustainable development and "green" industry.

Being a large city, Seattle has a large population and, subsequently, a large number of cars and other motor vehicles regularly travelling on its roads. Unfortunately, this also means that car accidents occur.

Types of Motor Vehicle Accidents

In any urban city, there is a wide variety of vehicles on the road at any given time. There are motorcycles, passenger cars, big rigs, delivery trucks, 15-passenger vans, minivans, SUVs, buses, and others. Ideally, the drivers of all these vehicles follow all traffic laws and never drive recklessly, negligently, or while impaired, and the roads these vehicles travel on are always in good repair. This ideal is, unfortunately, never constant, however. There are various types of vehicle accidents, including:

  • Speeding accidents;
  • Rollover accidents;
  • Overloaded truck crashes;
  • Hit and run accidents;
  • Drunk driving accidents;
  • Dangerous roadway crashes;
  • Distracted driving accidents;
  • Cell phone accidents;
  • Rear-end collisions; and
  • Failure-to-yield accidents.

The victims of such crashes can be drivers, passengers, bicyclists, pedestrians, or anyone else using the roadways and can suffer serious injuries or even be killed in the accident.

Car Crash Injuries

Motor vehicle accidents range from minor fender-benders to serious multi-vehicle collisions and each have the potential to cause injury, and in the case of the latter, fatalities. Depending on the circumstances of the crash, a victim may suffer the following injuries:

A car accident injury can create undue financial, emotional, and physical hardships for the victim, making getting rightful compensation a top priority. An injured victim should not have to worry about being able to pay monthly bills and feed their family while they are trying to recover from a serious injury.
