Spokane Car Accidents Attorney

Call Our Washington Personal Injury Firm At (509) 219-0020

Despite a growing awareness of the need to avoid risky behavior when driving, car accidents remain the primary cause of whiplash, serious injuries, and wrongful death. Too many drivers are not learning from past mistakes and continue to put others at risk.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there are nearly 6 million motor vehicle collisions every year and nearly 2.5 million car accident victims. In fact, the United Nations General Assembly named 2011-2020 the Decade of Action for Road Safety. From rear-end fender benders to careless turns into oncoming traffic, most accidents can be avoided if drivers follow the rules.

Our Spokane car accident lawyers are committed to helping victims hold careless and inattentive drivers accountable by obtaining full compensation. We’ve earned millions of dollars in compensation for our clients, which would not have been recovered otherwise.

Why Should You Have Legal Representation Before Moving Forward?

Before you speak with an insurance agent, give a recorded statement or sign any papers, call to speak with an experienced car accident lawyer at Sweetser Law Office. Do not let the insurance company take advantage of you. Accepting a settlement before you understand the long-term consequences of your injury may compromise the right to receive the full amount you are entitled to receive.

No Motor Vehicle Collision is Minor

"Accidents" are by definition unexpected, but they can cause an enormous disruption in your life. The effects of these accidents on car accident victims' lives can be extremely painful, not to mention burdensome. Costly medical treatment can be required for even minor injuries, while serious injuries, such as spinal or head trauma, can cause permanent physical disability.

Many people do not realize how extremely difficult it may be to recover from a car accident. In the early stages of medical treatment, often victims mistakenly believe low-impact car accidents are no cause for concern. In reality, no crash is minor. While an individual involved in a car accident might not have injuries that are evident immediately, soft tissue injuries such as whiplash, torquing of the neck, back or spine, will start to show symptoms later. Soft tissue injuries are severe because they oftentimes have long-term effects on the victim.

Steps to Take Immediately Following an Auto Accident in Spokane

The actions you take following a car accident can have an enormous impact on your claim. Here is a list of steps you should take no matter how minor the injury might seem:

  1. Call the Police to have a Collision Report Prepared
  2. Ask Someone to Take Pictures of the Scene and Injuries, as well as write down witness names
  3. Seek Immediate Medical Attention, completing all diagnostic tests, treatment, and rehabilitation
  4. Do Not Speak With the Insurance Company without Consulting an Attorney
  5. Gather as Much Information As Possible (witnesses, times, dates, locations)
  6. Don’t Delay. Call to Speak With a Lawyer. The call is always free.

Any Statement to Insurance Will Only Be Used Against You

When the other driver’s insurance company tries to contact you to request a written or verbally recorded statement, they are not on your side. They are trained to build a case against you. You have the right not to discuss your car accident with them. The claims adjuster might justify his or her requests based on a desire to “resolve” your claim.

Car accident victims must remember the “resolution” the adjuster cares about and gets paid for, is one where you recover little or no compensation. To protect your best interests, all communications with the insurance company should be done through a lawyer specializing in motor vehicle accidents.

If you or a loved one have been injured in a car accident caused by another driver, you should not fight the insurance company alone. An attorney who specializes in car accident injuries can provide you with the information needed to make decisions in the aftermath of the wreck.

Collision Re-Construction Can Show the Other Driver’s Careless Maneuvers

Sweetser Law Office understands the “rules of the road” and how to prove who was at fault in your case. Liability in motor vehicle lawsuits typically will be based on negligence when the other driver was speeding, violating a traffic law or another form of unsafe driving. Most car accidents are shown to have been caused by drivers choosing to be careless, such as a momentary loss of attentiveness.

We employ complex scientific and engineering principles sometimes necessary to prove just how a collision occurred on the roadway, or how even a minor impact can cause life altering injuries. A collision reconstruction expert is an engineer who can determine speed, the point of impact, the path of travel, and other critical aspects which ultimately prove who was at fault for the car accident.

Reckless behavior such as high-speed driving, or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, might be criminal and civil in nature. The criminal court will be conducted by law enforcement officials, but the civil justice system is your only way to recover for your financial costs, pain, suffering, lost wages, lost earning capacity, loss of enjoyment of life, lost relationships, lost opportunities, and the long-term consequences of your injuries.
