Union Hill Car
Accident Lawyer

Union Hill is a quiet neighborhood within Redmond, Washington, and is considered one of the best places to live and raise a family. Located fewer than 30 minutes from Seattle, Union Hill is a great place for those who commute into the city for work. All that driving has some downsides, though, including the increased risk of being involved in a car accident. If you have been involved in a Union Hill car accident, our Union Hill car accident attorneys at the Khan Law Firm PLLC can help you.

Getting the Facts About Union Hill Car Accidents

Auto accidents happen much more often than they should in King County and throughout the Seattle metropolitan area. Most of these collisions result from another party’s negligence or wrongdoing. The following are some facts and figures about Washington State car accidents from Washington State Annual Collision Summary:

  • Car crashes occur every 4.5 minutes;
  • Person dies every 16 hours in a Washington motor vehicle collision;
  • Person sustains injuries every 11 minutes in an accident;
  • Motorcyclists are involved in a collision every 4 hours;
  • Pedestrians and bicyclists are involved in crashes every 2.5 hours;
  • Pedestrian or bicyclist sustains fatal injuries in a collision with a motor vehicle every 4 days;
  • Speeding causes a car accident every 27 minutes;
  • Distracted driving causes a collision every 12 minutes; and
  • Intoxicated driving results in a death every 1.5 days.

How Do I Seek Financial Compensation After a Car Accident in Union Hill, WA?

Washington is a fault state, or a “tort” state, for auto accident purposes. Accordingly, after a car accident, you can file an auto insurance claim either with your own auto insurer (known as a first-party claim) or through the at-fault driver’s auto insurer (known as a third-party claim). There are benefits and limitations to each approach that you should discuss with your car accident attorney.

When auto insurance payouts are insufficient to cover your losses, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver. While there is no serious injury threshold to meet in Washington State to file a lawsuit against a driver, many car accident lawsuits occur when auto insurance limits prevent an injury victim from obtaining full compensation for significant losses. If you want more information about getting started on a lawsuit, our car accident lawyers in Union Hill can help.

Fault & Liability in a Car Accident Claim

When a car accident occurs, it is critical that fault is determined. Fault plays a big role in the claims process–the driver who is at fault for the accident is responsible for paying for it. Our law firm will handle the investigation into your car accident and will gather all evidence that’s necessary to make a determination about fault.

Common causes of car accidents include:

  • Speeding; 
  • Driving while distracted; 
  • Drunk driving;
  • Driving aggressively;
  • Performing illegal maneuvers; 
  • Defective vehicle parts.

Note that while some of the behaviors above are actually illegal, such as speeding, others are merely negligent. Negligence means failing to act with the same degree of care that another person of ordinary prudence would demonstrate in the same circumstance. 

You Deserve to Be Compensated

Our lawyers understand that when a crash occurs, it can be shocking and unexpected. If the crash is serious, you may be left with significant out-of-pocket costs and long-term harm. We want to make sure that you’re compensated for every cent you’ve lost, especially when the crash occurred through no fault of your own. We’ll work hard to get you a settlement that provides compensation for:

  • All of your medical expenses, including ambulance costs, hospital stays, prescription medication costs, surgeries, rehabilitation and therapy costs, and any expected future costs related to the accident;
  • The value of your property damage/vehicle replacement or repair costs;
  • The value of lost wages that you have suffered as a result of the accident and the value of lost wages and earnings, including benefits, that you expect to suffer as a result of your injuries; and
  • The value of your pain, suffering, and emotional distress. 

The amount of damages that you can potentially recover in a Union Hill car accident claim is unlimited; there is no cap on damages in our state. Note, however, that there is a three-year statute of limitations on all personal injury actions, including car accident lawsuits, in our state.
