I was hit by an uninsured driver! What should I do?
In the State of Washington, motorists are required to carry a minimum of Washington law requires that all motorists carry minimum liability insurance—at least $25,000 in bodily injury liability, up to $50,000 per accident, and $10,000 in property damage.
Unfortunately, an estimated 17.4% of drivers in Washington state are uninsured. This rate gives Washington the seventh highest uninsured rates in the United States.
If you are injured in a vehicle collision, there may not be enough money to pay your medical bills and fairly compensate you if the other driver was uninsured or carrying the state minimum. This is a common occurrence. Some injury clients have to rely on the following to pay for medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Furthermore, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that children are four times more likely to be struck by a motor vehicle on Halloween than any other day of the year.
Halloween is a fun, so drivers, parents, and trick-or-treaters often forget the dangers. It is a time to be more alert. If you or someone you know is injured, call the injury attorneys with Althauser Rayan Abbarno at (360) 736-1301.
Here are some tips to keep you safe this Halloween:
Slow down and obey all traffic signs and signals. Drive at least 5 mph below the posted speed limit to allow for more time to react if children run into the road;
Watch for children walking on roadways, medians and curbs. Dar costumes are hard to see and the pedestrians may be distracted;
Carefully enter and exit driveways and alleys; and
Turn on your headlights to make yourself more visible – even in at dusk.

What Is Hydroplaning? How can you avoid Injury Collisions?
Hydroplaning is when a vehicle starts sliding uncontrollably due to the tires encountering more water than the treads can displace. This time of year, hydroplaning is more common and dangerous!
When driving at high speeds over wet pavement, the water begins to push the front tires off the ground slightly, creating a thin film between the tire and the road. That film, and the resulting separation of the road and tire, causes the driver to lose control of the car and possibly end up in a crash.

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.

Many of us take our commutes for granted. Whether one hour or 10 minutes, routine commutes can be dangerous. Statistics evidence that 52% of all vehicle collisions occur within 5 miles of home and only 17% occur more than 20 miles away from home.
Maybe it is because we are more likely to drive near our residence. Maybe it is because we let our guard down when we are closer to home. Regardless, vehicle collisions can have a devastating impact on you and your family.
Being injured in a vehicle, motorcycle, bicycle, or pedestrian collision sets off a chain of events nobody is prepared for; medical bills and property damage are likely just tips of the iceberg. There may be lost wages, towing/impound fees; pain, suffering, and tons of confusing paperwork.
