What do we know about accidents in our area?

We think it is important to look at the latest year of data available provided by the Washington Department of Transportation. We can see that there was a total of 115,999 accidents in the state in the latest year of available data. Out of those accidents, there were:

  • 494 fatal crashes
  • 1,936 suspected serious injury crashes
  • 7,766 suspected minor injury crashes
  • 25,012 possible injury crashes

What kind of injuries are common in car accidents?

Most people think of car accidents resulting in only minor injuries or property damage. However, even minor injuries can result in major medical expenses. After factoring in a trip to the hospital in an ambulance and some simple tests, you could be looking at a bill for several thousands of dollars.

However, many traffic accident injuries are more severe. It is not uncommon for us to see the following in the aftermath of a car crash:

  • Broken and dislocated bones
  • Severe lacerations
  • Internal organ damage
  • Internal bleeding
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Concussions

For the most severe injuries, a car accident victim could be facing hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills. If a victim cannot work while they recover from their injuries, the lost income could jeopardize the financial livelihood of their entire family.

Will I be covered by insurance?

If we look at the minimum insurance requirements for Washington, we see the following:

  • $25,000 for injuries or death to one person in an accident you cause
  • $50,000 for total injuries or death to all people in an accident you cause
  • $10,000 for damage to another person’s property in an accident you cause

If you are struck by another driver, their insurance may not cover all of your expenses. In fact, their carrier may put up a fight when it comes to paying you.
