Car accidents are the most common cause of personal injury claims. A car accident injury lawyer should help people who have suffered in a car accident by representing them in the best way to help restore their lives as much as is humanely possible.
While some car accidents cause immediate catastrophic injuries, other times a car accident injury may take days, months or even years to appear. Experience has shown, however, that an injury which initially may seem minor can become very serious and cause an accident victim to incur life-long injuries, disability and substantial medical expenses and pain and suffering.
At Foster Law Offices we have successfully represented numerous individuals injured in automobile, motorcycle and trucking accidents.
In every car accident injury claim, we immediately work with police agencies and private accident investigation companies to investigate the cause of the crash to determine legal fault.
We then aggressively seek to recover all legal damages available to you and your family under Washington law.
Our aggressive legal representation will ensure that you receive ALL compensation you are entitled to under Washington and Federal law.
Car accident injury compensation available for recovery includes, but may not be limited to:
- Reimbursement for property damage to your vehicle;
- Loss of use including car rental reimbursement
- Reimbursement of your past and future lost wages and income;
- Payment of all your past and future medical bills;
- Compensation for your past and future pain and suffering.
- Compensation for all out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with your injuries.
In the state of Washington, automobile accidents have unfortunately experienced a dramatic increase each year as our roads become more congested and the distractions available to drivers (such as cell phones, palm pilots/PDA and in-car audio and DVD players) become more widely utilized by individuals while driving.
* Contributing Factors to a Car Accident Injury
According to the National Traffic Safety Board, the most frequent causes of car accidents are as follows:
- Driver inattention or distraction;
- Drunk or intoxicated driving;
- Failure to yield right of way;
- Illegal or unsafe speed; and
- Following too closely.
In car accidents that lead to death or incapacitating injuries, the single most frequently cited cause was the speed traveled by the motor vehicles involved in the crash. Alcohol is also a frequent contributing cause in a car accident injury.
At Foster Law Offices, we aggressively pursue a car accident injury claim against at-fault drivers and all other parties responsible for our clients' serious injuries and death.
We offer compassionate and effective legal advice to assist our clients and their families too.
* Car Accident Injury in Drunk Driving Accidents
Drunk driving is one of the leading causes of auto accidents in the United States.
In some cases, the people or businesses who served alcoholic beverages to a drunk driver may also be legally responsible for the damages caused by the drunk driver, particularly if alcohol was sold to an underage person or to a person who was obviously intoxicated at the time of sale. Washington law permits a car accident injury lawyer to prosecute those parties responsible for contributing to drunk driving.
If a drunk driver has victimized you or your family, the car accident injury attorneys of Foster Law Offices in Seattle, Washington are here to aggressively protect your rights. We will zealously pursue your accident claim to recover all economic harm and legal damages you may have coming to you.

We will investigate not only the circumstances surrounding the accident but will investigate where the drunk driver obtained the alcohol consumed. We are also here to assist accident victims, as well as family and loved ones.
* Car Accident Injury Involving Semi-truck or Commercial Vehicles
Whether its driver-error, mechanical defect or other individual or corporate negligence, a car accident injury involving a semi-truck, RV or commercial vehicle can cause an individual to suffer overwhelming medical expenses, lost wages, and serious pain and suffering.
The sheer size and tremendous weight of a semi-truck, 18-wheeler, tractor-trailer or other commercial size vehicle traveling at any rate of speed can cause devastating injuries to an individual driving a standard-size motor vehicle or even in an SUV.
Based on the unfortunate potential for substantial injury in a collision with a vehicle the size of a semi-truck, RV or commercial vehicle, immediate legal intervention is necessary to vigorously protect and enforce your legal rights.
Although any type of car accident injury may be suffered in a collision with a semi-truck, RV and/or commercial vehicle, the most typical injuries incurred by accident victims include, but may not be limited to:
- Spinal cord injuries;
- Traumatic brain injuries ("TBI");
- Bone fractures;
- Back/neck injuries.
