Seattle Auto Injury Lawyer
Auto wrecks are a leading cause of injury and death. If your Seattle vehicle collision was caused by another party’s negligence, you can recover fair compensation by hiring an aggressive car crash attorney at Craig Swapp & Associates.
Vehicle wrecks are common all over the country, but they’re particularly common in Seattle due to our weather conditions. We can’t blame all crashes on the rain, though—sometimes, people need to be held accountable for their mistakes.
If you believe your auto crash was the result of another driver’s careless actions, call a Seattle auto injury lawyer from our firm. Especially in the rain, drivers need to drive with caution, and failure to pay attention or drive at the appropriate speed for the weather conditions can lead to vehicle collisions.
When someone has injured you in a car wreck, you can sue that person in civil court to recover your losses. Vehicle collisions could leave you with medical expenses, missed work wages, pain and suffering, and, in some cases, permanent disability.
You shouldn’t have to deal with all that on your own. Filing a personal injury claim with a lawyer’s help can make sure you don’t have to.
Common Causes of Auto Injuries in Seattle
Auto accidents occur for a number of reasons, and the vast majority of those reasons have to do with human error. If drivers and others responsible for car wrecks were just a little more careful, we could probably prevent a great number of collisions in Seattle each year.
The driver who injured you can’t always blame the weather for your injuries. If he or she was speeding and collided with your vehicle after hydroplaning, your attorney can argue that the driver wouldn’t have hydroplaned had he or she not been speeding.
Here’s a look at some of the major causes of motor vehicle crash injuries in Seattle:
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Dangerous road conditions
- Reckless driving
- Mechanical failure
- Manufacturing defects
