Bellevue, Washington is the fifth largest city in the state and has a population just over 122,000 people, according to the 2010 census. It spans over 31 square miles between Lake Sammamish and Lake Washington near the Cascade Mountains.

Although Bellevue is not as large as other cities, it is still a metropolitan area and, with that, comes certain downsides, namely injury accidents.

Are Personal Injury Accidents Common?

Injury accidents are a fact of life in both rural and urban areas, but the numbers of such accidents are highest in urban cities. With the large number of people and vehicles, there are many potential types of personal injury vehicle accidents, including, but not limited to:

  • Motorcycle accidents;
  • Car crashes;
  • Truck accidents;
  • Pedestrian accidents;
  • 15-passenger van accidents;
  • Freeway accidents;
  • Hit and run accidents;
  • Hazardous roadway accidents;
  • Bus accidents; and
  • Rollover accidents.

Types of Injuries

Any of these accidents can cause a wide range of injuries, from relatively minor to severe or even fatal. Some common motor vehicle accident injuries include bumps, bruises, scrapes, lacerations, brain injury, spinal cord injury, and broken bones. Depending on the severity of the injuries, a vehicle accident victim may suffer complete paralysis or other disabling conditions. In most cases, vehicle accident injuries require months and even years to fully recover, resulting in mounting medical bills, lost time and wages from work, pain and suffering, and even emotional distress. An accident victim is not without legal recourse, however.
