Car accidents are common in Spokane

While many car accidents may not cause an injury, we realize that is not always the case. Within the latest reporting year in the city, there were more than 4,300 car accidents reported to the Department of Transportation (DOT). With those incidents, there were:

  • 9 Fatalities
  • 64 injuries suspected as serious
  • 270 injuries suspected as minor
  • 1,196 possible injuries

Injuries can be devastating

We often assist clients who have been injured in car accidents due to the reckless or negligent actions of another driver. At the Russell & Hill, PLLC, we regularly help individuals who have sustained several types of injuries, it is also not uncommon for us to help clients who have sustained the following in an accident:

  • Brain or head injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Dislocated or broken bones
  • Severe lacerations or possible amputations

Many of these injuries can lead to serious medical care and expenses for the victims. This not only involves medical costs, but also lost income from an inability to work, rehabilitation, and more. In certain cases, car accident victims sustain immense physical or emotional pain and suffering due to them not being able to perform activities they could before the incident.

Injuries can be costly

For many victims of car accidents in Spokane, their way of life has not only been interrupted due to their injuries but is also changed due to tremendous medical expenses. These expenses could involve costs of:

  • The initial hospitalization
  • Ambulance services
  • Future medical visitations

However, medical costs are not the only way these injuries affect victims. Some car accident victims could lose their jobs due to a disability, causing them to incur lost income. These victims can also suffer from emotional or psychological trauma, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), which would lead to incalculable injury costs.
