Seattle Parking Enforcement Officer Injured in Crash

By Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S. on April 23, 2013

The driver of an SUV and a female parking enforcement officer were both injured in a Seattle car accident involving a Nissan Pathfinder and a three-wheeled parking enforcement scooter. According to a KOMO news report, the injury accident occurred on 11th Avenue in the Central District of Seattle. Officials have yet to determine who was at fault for the crash. The officer and the male driver of the SUV, who is believed to be in his 40s, were hospitalized with non life-threatening injuries.

Following most Washington car accidents, the injured victim can seek financial compensation for medical bills, suffering, and lost wages by filing a claim against the at-fault driver. The victim will have to prove that the other driver’s negligence contributed to the crash. Insurance claims and civil lawsuits are valuable tools for injured victims of injury auto accidents. If the victim was on the job at the time, he or she can also seek workers’ compensation benefits from his or her employer. This coverage should include medical bills and a portion of the wages lost while healing.

Pursuing compensation following a Seattle car accident can be challenging. Dealing with insurance companies can be tricky. It is important for victims to remember never to rush into a quick settlement with an insurance company. Once you sign an agreement, you will not be able to make any other claims even if you have suffered additional losses.

An experienced Washington car accident lawyer can help injured victims make the right decisions. The decisions you make with regard to your personal injury case can affect you potentially for the rest of your life. It is important that you have a skilled and knowledgeable injury lawyer on your side who is fighting for your rights and protecting your best interests.
