According to a series of news reports, a downtown Seattle two-car accident has sent at least two people to the hospital.
News reports say that the two injured parties were a man and a woman.
As car accident attorneys ourselves, we believe that this type of accident should be mentioned as it happened early in the morning and the vehicle ended up crashing into a pole. Due to the condition of the vehicle and the victims’ state, officials had to extricate them from the wrecked car.
Washington State Patrol reported that the accident involving two vehicles happened near the Fifth Avenue and Pike Street intersection. While the two people injured in the accident were taken to the hospital, they are in stable condition.
The driver in the second vehicle was not injured.
According to officials, the factors that led to the accident are still being investigated.
As far as we can tell, there are many factors that could have led to this accident, but we hope more information is revealed soon otherwise we may believe that perhaps, we have an unaddressed safety issue at hand.
We hope that investigators looking into this accident are being able to identify the exact factors that made this accident a possibility. We also hope that the individuals who were injured are being able to recover in full and completely.
All too often, drivers are involved in accidents that could have been avoided. These cases often include accidents caused by distraction, by drowsy drivers, or by drunk driving.
Speeding and other related behaviors such as reckless driving are also often associated with similar two-vehicle crashes.
As personal injury attorneys serving the Seattle and surrounding areas for years, we have seen several similar accidents in which the driver to blame wasn’t the one who suffered the consequences for his or her actions. Victims are often injured and it takes them quite some time to recover.
Because medication and medical treatment can be expensive, victims of car accidents caused by negligent third parties should never be forced to deal with large and powerful insurance companies on their own.
