Car Accident

Don’t allow a negligent driver’s poor decision to leave you buried in medical debt and other losses. Get the compensation you are due by seeking help from a vehicle wreck lawyer.

Vehicle collisions are often the unfortunate consequence of other drivers’ careless behavior. If another driver’s negligence has caused your injuries, contact a Seattle vehicle crash lawyer as soon as possible.

You might not have even seen it coming, but it probably didn’t take long for you to understand you had been in a car accident. And in the days and weeks after that moment, it probably didn’t take much time for you to realize that your crash had the potential to cost you a lot of money.

The costs of a hospital stay, time away from work, a new car, and many other damages add up at lightning speed and immediately threaten your financial stability. That’s bad enough on its own, but the stress and suffering multiply when you face all these challenges with the knowledge that the car accident that is plaguing you wasn’t your fault.

If another party was at fault, he or she should have to help you deal with the financial fallout of your accident. Fortunately, Washington law makes provisions for victims in your situation.

You have the option to file a personal injury claim against the at-fault driver or other party to recover the compensation you need in order to handle your car accident. It may be your only option, and it isn’t likely to be easy. But a Seattle car accident attorney from Craig Swapp & Associates can help you obtain the compensation you’re entitled to.

How Did You Injury Happen?

Central to filing a successful Seattle car accident claim is understanding the nature and severity of your injuries. Start with injury type. Then, consult with your doctors to gain an understanding of how your injuries will affect your life, how much recovery time you’ll require, how much pain you will feel, and other aspects of your injuries.

From Cause to Fault

When so many factors could cause car accidents in Seattle, how do you identify the at-fault party?
