Primary Practice Areas for Emerald Law Group
One of the most common types of personal injury cases we encounter are those involving car accidents. The weather in Seattle and throughout the state of Washington is notoriously unpredictable and rainy which only increases the risks of car accidents and wrecks involving negligent and careless drivers. Whether you are driving through any of the many neighborhoods of Seattle or traveling on Washington’s interstates, no amount of precaution can prevent you from being rear-ended or being struck by a drunk or negligent driver.
When you or family member suffers injuries in car accident, you need a Seattle car accident lawyer who can help you deal with the insurance companies and fight on your behalf. Your focus during this volatile time should be on pursuing medical treatment and following your doctor’s orders, not dealing with overbearing or hostile insurance adjusters who want to take advantage of you and your family. We are here to help…
Seattle has a unique, if unfounded, reputation for being one of the few cities where the police dole out jaywalking fines to pedestrians, even when there is no traffic and no car in sight. We certainly are an active city and, despite the rain, many of the 230,000 workers in the downtown core and the millions of residents throughout our neighborhoods and surrounding suburbs use our sidewalks and crosswalks every day. As a result, we also see many pedestrian accidents in the Seattle area and throughout Washington.
In Washington, pedestrians have the right of way at any uncontrolled intersection, marked or unmarked. If a pedestrian is at an intersection that does not have a traffic signal, all vehicles are required to yield to the pedestrian when he or she is crossing the street. While you are not permitted to simply jump out in front of a moving vehicle, you are granted the right-of-way to safely enter the intersection and walk directly across to the other side.
Injuries to children and minors are a unique variation of personal injury law that covers a wide range of injuries, from simple car accidents to complex childhood sexual abuse litigation. If your child suffers an injury in the Seattle area or elsewhere in Washington, we are here to serve you, the parents, and help make sure that your child’s rights are protected. Because minors are involved, the state of Washington has designed a system that requires court approval of most minor settlements, even if no lawsuit was initiated by the parents.
We understand the anger you feel as a parent when your child suffers due to someone else’s negligence. Injuries to children are some of the most difficult personal injury cases to handle from an emotional and legal perspective, particularly when the child is too young to explain his or her injuries or what happened. We are here to help you and your child pursue the responsible parties and seek compensation on behalf of your child.
