Washington car accident? When should you call a lawyer?

In Washington State there are around 250,000 motor vehicle accidents every year. Of those accidents, there are approximately 1,500 fatalities and around 140,000 injuries. If you’ve been in a car accident, you might wonder, “Should I call a lawyer? What kind of lawyer should I call?”

Personal injury attorneys specialize in representing people who have been seriously injured in car accidents, bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents and motorcycle accidents due to another person’s reckless or negligent actions. If the other driver is cited in an accident, then the police officer has determined they were the negligent party. Sometimes it is not so clear and the court will have to assign degrees of blame.

We recommend you call a personal injury attorney if you have received serious injuries which may be permanent, or even life threatening. You should call a Washington Personal Injury Attorney in the following cases:
