COLUMBIA CITY CAR
ACCIDENT LAWYER

Neighborhoods as diverse and historic as Columbia City are part of what makes the greater Seattle metropolitan area such a unique and positive place to live, work, and raise a family. Although Columbia City itself is somewhat removed from downtown Seattle (requiring about a 15-minute light rail ride on Sound Transit’s Central Link from the Columbia City station), this community shares some of the problems that other Seattle neighborhoods as well as downtown Seattle all have in common: car wrecks.

A “car wreck” or “car collision” may not seem like a serious and traumatic event – after all, many car wrecks happen every day across the country – but car collisions can result in drivers and passengers experiencing catastrophic – even fatal – injuries. In fact, in King County alone, nearly 500 people died in traffic collisions alone in 2015. When you are injured and are the victim in a Columbia City traffic crash, your and your family’s world is turned upside down. Your continued employment may be jeopardized, and your ability to enjoy and participate in activities with your loved ones may be compromised. While Khan Law Firm, PLLC may not be able to undo the harm you suffered and restore your physical health and wellbeing, we are committed to helping you and your family obtain financial compensation to address the many monetary burdens your injury imposes on you.

Causes of Columbia City Car Accidents

Although car collisions unfold swiftly in Columbia City, many collisions are the result of careless or thoughtless decisions made by one or more drivers in the moments before the vehicles actually collide. This means that many of these accidents could be avoided if the driver or drivers involved decided against:

  • Texting while driving or driving when they are distracted by someone or something that takes their attention away from the road;
  • Abstaining from alcohol, illegal drugs, prescription medications, or over-the-counter medicines that impair one’s ability to safely drive;
  • Obeying speeding laws, right-of-way laws, and other traffic regulations.

Evidence that one or more drivers involved in your Columbia City car wreck disobeyed the law or committed a criminal act and in so doing caused your crash may be sufficient to cause a judge or jury to award you compensation for your car crash injuries. However, evidence of a criminal act is not necessary for your case to succeed: if the at-fault driver in your case drove his or her car in a manner that a reasonable person would not have done, you may also be entitled to compensation for your injuries.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO PROTECT MY LEGAL RIGHTS?

Aside from your health, there is nothing greater to protect following a Columbia City car wreck than your legal rights. If you do not take prompt and decisive action, you may find that it is difficult (or even impossible) to obtain compensation for your injuries. The following steps may help you in protecting your rights to pursue a recovery:

  • Seek medical evaluation and treatment as soon as possible, even if you do not feel your injuries are terribly serious. Prompt medical care can not only ensure serious injuries are properly diagnosed and timely treated, but also that you are not accused of contributing to the seriousness of your injuries by unreasonably failing to obtain care (an allegation which, if proven, can result in a reduction of your compensation award).
  • Do not give a recorded statement or accept a settlement without first speaking with an attorney. Statements you make about the crash may be used by the at-fault party or parties to suggest you were primarily to blame for the crash, and settlements often promise you certain sums of money that are not sufficient to fully compensate you and require you to waive important rights.
  • Retain legal counsel to begin investigating your case and preparing your lawsuit for filing. In Washington, a car crash lawsuit arising out of a Columbia City car crash must be filed within two years of the date of the crash. Waiting too long before seeking legal counsel can hamper your attorney’s ability to fully investigate your case and/or prepare your lawsuit for filing in time.
