Pedestrian Seriously Injured in Seattle Crash

By Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. on December 11, 2015

Pedestrian AccidentsA woman in her 60s has suffered serious injuries in a pedestrian accident. According to a Seattle Times news report, the car accident happened on the north side of Northeast 79th Street in Redmond. Officials say the woman sustained critical injuries in the crash. The driver who struck her remained at the scene. Police believe the wet conditions may have contributed to the crash.

Poor weather conditions are a common contributing factor in Seattle car accidents. You can reduce your chances of causing a weather-related crash by:

  • Making sure you have effective windshield wipers.
  • Turning on your headlights.
  • Adjusting your speed not only to the speed limit and flow of traffic, but also to the weather conditions.
  • Leaving more space between your vehicle and the vehicles around you.
  • Beginning to brake earlier than you would in dry conditions.
  • Remaining attentive to the surrounding area and eliminating all distractions.
  • Driving slowly through puddles.

You can also reduce your chances of being struck while walking in rainy weather by sticking to well-lit sidewalks, wearing bright clothing, and carrying a flashlight.

If you have been injured in a Seattle car accident, do not hesitate to research your legal options. Financial support may be available for your medical bills, time away from work, physical pain, mental anguish, the cost of rehabilitation services, and other related damages.

A Seattle car accident attorney can review your claim and help you get the support you need. Do not hesitate to gather evidence and reach out to an attorney who can help you achieve the best possible outcome in your case.
