Bellevue Accident Lawyers
The city of Bellevue has quickly become home to many residents and businesses because of its ideal location and nearness to both Seattle and the Microsoft headquarters in nearby Redmond. With now over 122,000 residents and many thriving businesses, Bellevue is now a booming city that was even been named by CNNMoney as the best place in the U.S. to live and launch a business in 2008 and as the fourth best place to live in the entire country in 2010.
However, with so many residents and visitors to the city every day, personal injury accidents in Bellevue are a common occurrence. At Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S., our Bellevue personal injury attorneys understand how devastating being injured in an accident can be for a victim. Fortunately, those injured in an accident caused by another party’s negligence or recklessness do not have to suffer the physical and financial consequences, as they are entitled to seek compensation from those responsible.
Typical Auto Accidents
Some of the most serious accidents that a person can be involved in are car crashes. These accidents often occur at high speeds and subject vehicle occupants or nearby pedestrians to serious trauma from the impact of the crash. Each type of motor vehicle accident can result in different injuries, but all are serious in nature and may even be life-threatening. Frequently occurring motor vehicle accidents include:
- Rear-end collisions;
- Head-on crashes;
- Vehicle rollovers;
- Truck accidents;
- Dangerous roadway crashes;
- Speeding accidents;
- Intersection collisions; and
- Pedestrian accidents.
Common Injuries Suffered in Accidents
During an accident, whether it is a car crash, slip and fall, or any other unexpected incident, a person’s body is often subjected to a devastating impact and many other factors that prove to be more than the body can protect against. While the body is meant to heal and recover from injuries, those sustained in serious accidents, most frequently car crashes, often prove too much for the body to handle without proper medical treatment. Unfortunately, such treatment and rehabilitation is costly and lengthy, putting a great burden on an accident victim.
Common injuries that result from car crashes and other accidents include:
- Traumatic brain injury;
- Broken and/or fractured bones;
- Joint sprain and strains;
- Spinal cord damage;
- Nerve damage; and
- Organ and tissue trauma.
Depending on the severity of these injuries, each can require minor to extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation.
