Allentown Car Accident Lawyer
According to The Seattle Times, Allentown – a neighborhood in Tukwila, King County – is bordered by Interstate 5 and Highway 599 and can be described as “a residential island in a sea of commercial enterprise.” While this description certainly makes Allentown appear to be a vibrant and industrious community, such a community is also prone to serious motor vehicle crashes. More specifically, whenever residents share major roadways and highways with commercial vehicles, the risk of a serious motor vehicle crash occurring is amplified.
Allentown motor vehicle crash injury victims can quickly find themselves saddled with thousands of dollars in medical bills and other expenses at a time when they are not able to work and generate income to meet these obligations. At Khan Injury Law, PLLC, we believe that drivers who engage in careless or negligent conduct should be held to account for their decisions and that victims who are injured by this conduct should not have to bear the financial burdens of these injuries themselves. We assist injured Allentown motorists in obtaining compensation for their injuries and losses. Contact us today if you or a loved one is in need of representation following a car wreck in Allentown.
Types of Motor Vehicle Accidents
Although car crashes (that is, collisions between two or more passenger vehicles) are commonplace in Allentown and elsewhere in Washington, they are by no means the only type of motor vehicle accident that occurs in this community. Other types of motor vehicle wrecks include:
- Truck accidents, in which at least one of the vehicles involved is a commercial truck, big-rig, or tractor-trailer. These collisions often result in one or more individuals involved suffering serious – if not fatal – injuries. The likelihood of these catastrophic injuries occurring is increased when the other vehicle(s) involved are small passenger vehicles.
- Commercial vehicle accidents, which may include other large commercial vehicles like commercial busses, farm and agricultural equipment, and other similar vehicles. Like truck accidents, commercial vehicle accidents can cause other drivers involved to suffer fatal or near-fatal injuries.
- Motorcycle wrecks between a motorcyclist and any other type of vehicle usually end badly for the motorcyclist, regardless of who is actually at fault in causing the crash. While a motorcyclist’s decision to wear appropriate safety gear like a helmet and protective clothing can help lessen the severity of injuries that the motorcyclist suffers, a motorcyclist would still be at risk for suffering head, spine, and neck injuries, broken bones, and painful and serious lacerations and abrasions.
All of these various types of accidents and crashes can be the subject of a motor vehicle lawsuit if one driver’s careless or reckless actions cause injury to another. Although the facts of each crash will be different, the legal principles that entitle the victim to recovery will remain the same. Khan Injury Law, PLLC is intimately familiar with these principles and how to apply them to the facts of your case so as to maximize your chances of recovering full and fair compensation for your losses.
How Soon Must I File a Car Crash Lawsuit in Allentown?
Every state (including Washington) has a statute of limitations that sets out how much time a car crash injury victim has to file a lawsuit seeking compensation for his or her losses and expenses. In Washington, Allentown car crash injury victims have two years from the date of their accident to identify the individual(s) responsible for causing the crash, determine whether they have a legal basis to file a claim for compensation, and to initiate the lawsuit process. When one considers that during this time the car crash injury victims are also attempting to recover from their injuries, return to work, and provide for their families, this does not leave injury victims much time to act.
Retaining Khan Injury Law, PLLC, however, can free Allentown car crash injury victims from worrying about timely asserting their legal rights and instead allow them to focus on getting their own personal lives back on track. Our firm keeps clients informed at every stage of their lawsuit, ensuring clients are equipped with the knowledge they need to make informed decisions about their case and legal rights.
