Is The Insurance Company On My Side?
Insurance companies set out to make as much money as they possibly can. To do so, they need to settle your case in as little time and for as little money as possible. They will do their best to jeopardize any payments for your pain and suffering, lost compensation, any change in your quality of life, and all of your medical expenses related to the car accident.

How Do I Get a Police Report?
The information that you receive at the scene of a car accident is typically an “Exchange of Information”, not an actual police report. The real report is created and submitted after the fact by the police officer who responds to your accident.
To get your accident report, visit the Washington State Patrol website and submit your request.
Should I Give a Recorded Statement to the Insurance Company?
Insurance companies may request that you provide a recorded statement after you are involved in an auto accident. We advise against this, as the insurance company is going to use your statement to build a case against your claim. Should you seek the help of a personal injury attorney, they’ll tell you NOT to give a statement to anyone affiliated with the insurance company.
Don’t let insurance representatives pressure or intimidate you. Even if you already gave a recorded statement, contact Washington Law Center today for a free case review.

When choosing an insurance plan, be sure to pick a plan that includes Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Insurance (UIM/UM).

Vehicle Accidents Involving Pedestrians
You can be at risk even if you aren’t driving in a car. The CDC also reports about 1 in 5 of the people who died in crashes involving a distracted driver in 2019 were not in vehicles―they were walking, riding their bikes, or otherwise outside of a motor vehicle. About 3,000 people die in car accidents that involve a distracted driver each year.
Road Conditions and Distracted Drivers Vancouver
The average one-way commute in Vancouver is just under 30 minutes. This statistic has increased every year since 2010. The wet weather in the state of Washington can create hazardous driving conditions. Slippery roads can be a challenge for any driver, no matter how experienced.
Some days it feels like every day is a rainy day. This results in more traffic during our sunny summer months. Good weather brings out more residents and tourists. It also is a time where there is more road construction in King County.
More construction on the road leads to more distracted drivers and more accidents with drivers doing their best to navigate the obstacles.
Distracted Drivers are a Leading Cause of Car Accident Fatalities
Over 3,100 people were killed and about 424,000 were injured in crashes involving a distracted driver in the United States in 2019, according to the CDC.
