Most people who drive a car or ride a motorcycle will end up in an auto accident at some point in their lives. Even those who walk or bike are at risk of an injury accident caused by a negligent driver. If someone is responsible for causing the accident, they should be responsible for compensating you for your injuries. Contact an experienced Clark County auto accident lawyer to make sure you get the compensation you deserve.
Clark County Vehicle Accidents
I represent injured clients who are involved in motor vehicle accidents or any type of accident that occurs on the road in the Vancouver, Washington area. This includes:
- Car accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
Car accidents are some of the most common type of injury accidents. Even if you are doing everything right, obeying traffic laws, using your seat belt, and following the rules of the road, you can't always account for the actions of a negligent driver. After a car accident, you may be facing expensive medical bills, time off of work, and a damaged car.
You do not have to wait around for the insurance company to give you a settlement that doesn't cover all your losses. Talk to a car accident lawyer who will deal with the insurance company and make sure you get full compensation for damages.
In an accident between a car and a pedestrian, the pedestrian always loses. Pedestrian accidents are often caused by drivers who may be speeding, distracted, or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Pedestrian accidents can be serious or even life threatening. If you have lost a loved one in a pedestrian accident, the surviving family members may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit to hold the negligent driver responsible for their actions.
Cycling safely isn't always easy around Vancouver. Drivers may fail to yield, pass too closely, or get mad that a cyclist is even on the road. Even poor road conditions can make it dangerous for cyclists when the city or county doesn't keep the roads in proper repair. After an accident, cyclists should be able to focus on recovery instead of fighting for compensation. An experienced bicycle accident lawyer will deal with the driver, insurance company, county, and anyone else who was responsible for your accident.
Any motorcycle rider has had their share of close calls with negligent drivers on the road. Drivers are responsible for driving with due care for everyone on the road, not just other cars. Motorcycle injuries are generally more serious than car accident injuries because motorcyclists have little to protect them in an accident. After an accident, motorcycle riders need an experienced lawyer who understands complex accident injuries, damages, and liability laws.
Truck accidents can be more complicated than other accidents because of the increased weight a truck is carrying and the higher center of gravity. Truck accidents can cause serious permanent injury or death. Truck accident lawsuits can also be more complicated because there are multiple parties involved and multiple insurance companies. In truck accidents, it is important for the injury victim to have someone on their side to make sure the trucking and insurance companies pay their share of the damages.
Compensation After a Car Accident
Under Washington's personal injury laws, you are entitled to compensation from those who were responsible for causing your auto accident. Car accident damages can include:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Lost earnings
- Vehicle repair
- Pain and suffering
