LAKEWOOD, WA CAR ACCIDENT LAWYER

Every single time that you get behind the wheel of a car, there is a chance that you will be involved in a car accident. In fact, some statistics suggest that everyone will be in a car accident at least once in their life, if not more. At the Khan Law Firm LLC, our Lakewood, WA car accident lawyers have handled far too many car accident cases over the years and have seen too many tragic stories caused by drivers’ negligence. If you have been involved in a car accident, we understand what you’re going through. As you navigate the claims process and think about what next steps you’ll take, our lawyers will be by your side to advocate for you and help you to achieve the best-case outcome possible.

Types of Car Accidents

Our lawyers can assist you in building your car accident claim. We have experience working on some of the most common, as well as the most deadly, types of car accidents. These include:

  • Head-on collisions. While head-on collisions are not nearly as common as the other types of car accidents, they can be very deadly. These types of accidents generally occur when one vehicle is traveling in the wrong direction of traffic, perhaps as a result of falling asleep at the wheel or driving drunk.
  • Rear-end collisions. Completely opposite from head-on collisions in every way, rear-end crashes are one of the most common crash types and, typically, one of the least serious. However, rear-end crashes may be severe, and have even led to death in some cases. One of the most complicated aspects of a rear-end collision case is determining fault for the accident.
  • Side-swipe accidents. Side-swipe accidents are common on the highway, when multiple vehicles are attempting to navigate the road, which often means changing lanes. This type of accident occurs when a vehicle lane-changes into the lane of another without seeing the vehicle to their side. This might be a result of aggressive driving or pure distraction, or because the vehicle is in their blind spot at the time that the maneuver is performed.
  • T-bone accidents. When one vehicle crashes head-on into the side of another, forming a ‘T’-like shape, a T-bone accident has occurred. Almost always occurring at intersections, T-bone accidents can be fatal for those involved.
  • Rollover crashes. Finally, rollover crashes are unique for a number of reasons. First, they are very rare; second, they often involve a single vehicle; and three, they are very serious and have a higher likelihood of being fatal. 

In addition to motor vehicle accidents involving standard passenger cars, our lawyers can also represent those involved in truck accidents, commercial vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents pedestrian accidents, and bicycle accidents.

Experts and Types of Evidence in a Lakewood Car Accident Case

When you hire our lawyers after a crash, one of our primary jobs will be that of gathering evidence to support your claim and build your case. Types of evidence that will matter as you navigate the claims process include:

  • Police report. Be sure to file a report with the police as soon as possible after the accident, preferably while you are still at the accident scene. Request a copy of the report. 
  • Driver’s information. You’ll need to information of the other driver, as well as the information about their vehicle and insurance coverage, in order to file a claim. Get this information at the scene.
  • Witnesses’ information. Did anyone witness your car accident? Can anyone lend clues about what happened or who was to blame? If so, these witnesses’ statements should be recorded, and the names and contact information of the witnesses should be noted for future reference, too.
  • Photographs. If you are able to, it’s a smart idea to take photographs of the scene of the accident, including any damage to vehicles, any initial injuries, vehicles’ positions, internal damage to vehicles, skid marks, traffic signs or lights, weather conditions, and anything else that you think may be important later on.

Depending on the complexity of your case and whether or not fault is disputed, another type of evidence may be the testimony of experts. Types of experts who can contribute to your claim include:

  • Accident reconstruction experts who will reconstruct the accident to determine what happened;
  • Vehicle design experts, who may be able to provide insight as to whether or not a vehicle defect caused the accident;
  • Medical experts, who can attest to the cause and severity of your injuries;
  • Financial experts, who can provide evidence regarding the extent of your monetary losses; and
  • More. 

The types of experts that you need working on your case will vary depending upon case details. Note that our lawyers have connections to different experts already established and can front the costs of hiring experts on your behalf.
