The Numbers

Before we get into the main causes of car crashes, we need to look at the statistics for Washington from the latest reporting year. There were:

  • 117,053 total collisions
  • 49,505 total injuries
  • 551 total fatalities

We know how high medical costs in this country can be, even for a minor procedure. Unfortunately, vehicle accidents often cause major injuries that require surgery and rehabilitation. The costs of the following injuries can become incredibly expensive:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Internal organ damages
  • Internal bleeding
  • Lacerations and amputations

The problem is that insurance companies, despite how they are supposed to operate, usually do not have your best interests in mind. They will do what they can to ensure their settlement is as low as possible. This does not help you when you have medical bills coming in. It also does not help with your injuries prevent you from working and you lose out on your income.

Why Accidents Happen

We know that some accidents are just that – accidents. We also know that there are times when another person’s extreme negligence contributes to your injuries. Drivers who speed or operate their vehicles aggressively cause the most accidents on Washington’s roadways.

Drivers who are impaired by drugs or alcohol cause more fatalities than anyone else. Anyone who makes the choice to get behind the wheel while impaired should be held accountable for their actions.

More and more, we are seeing how technology is taking over our lives while we are in the car. From the GPS and stereos on the dash to our phones, there are so many distractions we face. If a person is distracted while driving, they can be just a deadly as a drunk driver.

At Russell & Hill, PLLC, we will have your back in dealing with insurance companies and other parties involved. We want to make sure you have compensation for:
