If I only had a nickel for every time I’ve been asked that question…. The honest answer is: “It depends.” Sorry, but that is the best answer any injury lawyer can give you. I am NOT trying to evade the question or be flip, but I have learned over my 25 years of representing injury victims that there is no easy answer to this question. The answer ALWAYS depends on the unique facts of each case. I have settled some cases within a month of the accident; I’ve had other accident cases that… [read post]

Sunday’s Austin American Statesman had a great article about the increasing number of auto-pedestrian fatalities in Austin.  While the bigger trend is for fewer traffic fatalities, the number of auto-pedestrian accidents and fatalities is increasing.  Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo has two theories about the increase.  One, increased alcohol usage by motorists and pedestrians could explain part of the problem.  Additionally, people now have more disregard for pedestrians at… [read post]

  Last Sunday, former NFL quarterback Joey Harrington was seriously injured in a bicycle accident.  Apparently he was riding his bicycle when an SUV passed too close to him and struck him.  he was taken to the hospital where he was diagnosed as having a broken collar bone, a  punctured lung, and other injuries.  Thankfully, he appears to be okay  (and this is obviously a relative term given the serious nature of his injuries). I’ve represented a number of people who have suffered serious… [read post]

According to new data released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, pedestrian fatality numbers are up by 4% in 2010, compared to 2009.  However, these numbers are still 13% lower than they were in 2001.  While the number of fatalities have decreased overall, as Seattle car accident attorneys, it is always a concern to see the numbers rising again.  4,280 pedestrians were killed in accidents in 2010 alone.  The data reported that, on average, a pedestrian was killed in an… [read post]

As a Seattle auto accident attorney, I am an advocate against drinking and driving under any circumstances.

According to King 5 News, an 18 year old has been charged with vehicular homicide due to drinking and driving that resulted in three deaths. The accident occurred on November 12th just after 12a.m. when the driver, Kaylea Souza, tried to pass a car and lost control of her vehicle. This… [read post]

I’m sure most of us have heard studies complaining about America’s traffic and how much it costs Americans to sit in congestion.  While that’s bad, it’s not nearly the cost of car wrecks. Earlier this month, the American Automobile Association  (AAA) released a study, Crashes v. Congestion — What’s The Cost To Society?    The study found that the annual societal cost of car wrecks is $300 billion, more than three times the $98 billion cost of congestion.  That comes out to $1,522… [read post]

Although there have been any number of semi-truck accidents that have resulted in the wrongful death of individuals the story of one especially painful accident was shared on a national television broadcast recently that highlights the fact - sometimes blame in itself is not enough. Several years ago a mother was stuck in traffic on a California highway with her three small children in tow - securely and correctly strapped in the child safety seats. With the vehicle at a complete stop - what… [read post]

The Center for Disease Control conducts a survey with high school students every year that questions them about potentially harmful driving habits.  This year, they’ve gotten back some very good results, but also some very disheartening results.  What’s great news is that the percentage of teens who report not wearing a seatbelt in cars has decreased from 26% in 1991 to 8% in 2011.  It’s always a good idea to buckle up, and we’re happy to hear that teens are paying more attention to… [read post]
