Car Accidents in Anacortes, WA

Accidents don’t happen very often in Anacortes. When a crash does occur, it usually involves what the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration calls risky driving behaviors. As with accidents nationwide, speed, alcohol impairment, and distracted driving often contribute to serious accidents and injuries. The Washington Department of Transportation documents these recent accident statistics:

Anacortes Car Accident Statistics: Total Crashes: 97

  • Suspected fatal Injuries: 2
  • Suspected serious Injury: 2
  • Suspected minor Injuries: 12
  • Possible injury: 18
  • No apparent injury: 63

Who Is Responsible For Car Accidents?

A driver is legally responsible for their actions, but determining responsibility is often more complicated than that. An owner’s liability insurance may cover an accident if the driver is using their vehicle with permission. An owner may have a separate liability exposure if they loaned their car to a known bad driver.

The owner, employer, repair company, or loading contractor may share liability for a commercial vehicle accident. Sometimes contractual relationships shift the responsibility to other parties. When handling an accident we place all potentially responsible parties on notice.

Car Accident Injuries

Injuries vary depending on vehicle size, impact severity, speed, protection, and other factors. During even a minor impact with a vehicle, motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians can sustain life-threatening injuries. Our car accident attorneys have resolved accidents involving minor, severe, and catastrophic injuries.

Spinal cord and disc injuries
Traumatic brain injuries (including concussions)
Fractures

Recoverable Damages For a Car Accident Claim

When we negotiate, mediate, or try a case, we seek all legally recoverable damages.

  • Economic: Medical bills, lost wages, medications, and other costs incurred during treatment, recovery, and rehabilitation
  • Non-economic damages: The negotiated value of your pain, suffering, disability, disfigurement, loss of consortium, and other subjectively assessed damages

Washington’s negligence statute allows insurance companies and courts to reduce an injury settlement if the injured person contributed to the accident.

Statute of Limitations

In Washington, you have three years from your accident date to settle a claim or file a lawsuit. If you let your deadline pass without taking action, you lose your right to make a claim.

When you’re recovering from injuries, it’s easy to lose track of critical deadlines. That’s why we recommend that you consult with our car accident attorney in Anacortes, WA as soon as possible after your accident.
