Car Accident Lawyer
No two accidents are the same, and neither are our clients. It is our mission as Advocates to do whatever possible to make your life whole again. To accomplish this, we will demand full compensation for any losses and expenses you have burdened with because of your accident. This may include:
- Lost wages
- Medical bills
- Physical therapy bills
- Chiropractic treatments
- Personal recovery time
- Childcare costs
Multiple studies have shown that hiring an attorney to represent your car accident claim can have a profound impact on the potential settlement you receive. Our attorneys have decades of experience negotiating fair settlements with insurance adjusters and will argue your case before a judge and jury if required. The staff of The Advocates Law are experts at obtaining comprehensive medical records, ensuring your medical bills are paid and do not fall into collections, and we can even help you get into a rental car while your vehicle is being repaired. To be honest, hiring an attorney is one of the best decisions you can make for your case and can potentially increase the settlement you receive exponentially.
Just as no two accidents are the same, neither are two car accident cases. If you are no longer treating your injures and your case settles out of court then you can expect everything to be concluded within a 4-to-12-month range. But if your case ends up requiring a lawsuit to be filed, then your claim may not settle for years. The discovery phase alone can go on for 6 to 12 months. Luckily, most personal injury cases do not go to trial.
Car Accidents Are Serious Legal Cases
Nothing can shake you up during your daily commute like suddenly being blindsided in a car accident. Car accidents will not only ruin your day, they can create a nearly inescapable burden on your life. A bad enough accident can cause serious bodily injury or death, wreck your finances, and make your day-to-day life impossible.
Since 1993, The Advocates Law has helped thousands of victims recover millions of dollars due to the damages and trauma caused by automobile accidents. Few people are prepared for the uncertainty that can follow an accident. Do you have a personal injury case? How will your medical bills get paid? How will you get by if you are unable to work?
The Advocates Law can answer all of these questions and more. Our experienced attorneys can help guide you through the disorienting maze that is personal injury law.
Washington Car Accident Statistics
Automobile accident statistics in Washington State are tracked by both a primary and secondary cause. Some examples of these causes are distracted drivers, impaired drivers, reckless operation, motorcycle accidents, and excessive speeding.
In 2012, the Washington Traffic Safety Commission reported the occurrence of 1 car crash occurring every 5 minutes.
Even more harrowingly, they reported that there was 1 car-accident-related death in Washington every 20 hours. For motorcyclists, there was 1 collision every four hours, and a pedestrian or bicyclist was struck every 3 hours. In total, there were over 33,133 injuries involving car accidents in 2012.
To the average commuter, these statistics can be incredibly alarming. How can you and your family expect to be safe traveling on Washington roads? How can you protect yourself in the future? Don’t worry. The Advocates Law are here to help you if the unfortunate ever happens.
