Three people sustained injuries in a rear-end car accident on the Highway 502. The accident occurred when an eastbound 2003 Mazda pickup stopped to turn left into a driveway when the vehicle was struck from behind by a Nissan Altima. The driver of the pickup truck sustained head injuries while the other driver and his passenger sustained head and neck injuries. Washington State Patrol blames the accident on speed and inattention and cited the driver of the Nissan Altima for speeding.
Rear-end auto accidents are usually caused as a result of carelessness. However, victims of such accidents are very often left with severe back, neck or head injuries that require continued treatment and medical expenses. Recently, The Bernard Law Firm obtained a $91,000 settlement for a Kirkland Washington woman who was rear-ended in Mill Creek. She was a professional body builder who was forced to quit competitive body building due to neck, back and right wrist strain that required surgery and lengthy hand therapy.
As Washington auto accident attorneys who have represented numerous clients over the last 25 years, we understand that even accidents that result in injuries characterized as “minor,” can have a significant impact on the injured victim’s life. And usually, such accidents are caused by negligence and inattention on the part of another driver. In such cases, as an injured victim, you can seek compensation to cover medical expenses, lost wages, cost of physical therapy, surgery and other related damages.
