School Bus Laws and Safety!

Students are back to school and buses are back on the road. The injury attorneys with Althauser Rayan Abbarno want to our students to be safe and remind our local drivers of the law. Here is a remind of the School Bus Laws in the State of Washington. 

Under Washington law, stopping for a school bus is required when the motorist is driving in the same direction as the bus or approaching an oncoming bus. If a driver is heading the opposite direction of the school bus, they must stop unless the roadway is divided by barrier. Bus drivers will use red stop signs and lights to signal such a stop.

Bus drivers may also use yellow lights to indicate they are slowing down and preparing to stop. Bus drivers are trained to be on the lookout for cars and use caution when making pickups and drop-offs, but the duty remains on other drivers to pay attention and obey the law to avoid an accident and keep children safe.

Preserving Evidence After a Car Accident or Injury!

Preserving Evidence After a Car Accident or Injury!

Spoliation, in a legal context, is any act that renders potential evidence invalid, either intentionally or through negligence. In the case of a document, for example, destroying, altering or hiding it would all be considered spoliation if the document were relevant to current litigation.

In personal injury cases or car accident cases, that could be a video, documents, mechanic reports, or a vehicle’s black box.

A party with the knowledge of an incident or injury that has the possibility of being litigated has the duty and obligation to preserve the evidence- even if it is not favorable to them.

If you were injured in a car accident, at work, or due to the negligence of another, call Althauser Rayan Abbarno in Olympia or Centralia for a FREE Injury Consultation at (360) 736-1301.

It is important to have an attorney preserving the evidence soon after an accident or injury. Call (360) 736-1301 or visit CentraliaLaw.com for your free personal injury, workers’ Compensation or car accident consultation. #Abogado #WA_Attorneys

Helping Your Family Secure Benefits After A Workplace Injury!

Many of us spend more time at work than we do home with our families. That is why there is a term “work family”. We may also be more likely to have a workplace injury. The insult to injury is the attitude and demeanor change by “work family” after a workplace injury- it can become hostile.

Workplace injuries are not a vacation; income is lower; medical bills are piling up, pressure from the employer to return to work early is increasing; appointments are inconvenient; and the pain of the injury is unbearable. Workplace injuries impact everyone! That is where experienced workers’ compensation attorneys can help.
