Insightful advocate helps determine the cause of your accident
Because Washington is an at-fault insurance state, the insurance carrier of the driver who caused the accident is responsible for paying the resulting damages. For this reason, it is important to determine the cause of the accident and identify who is at fault. Common causes of motor vehicle accidents include:
- Distracted driving — Texting and driving and other forms of distracted driving have become an increasingly frequent cause of motor vehicle accidents.
- Speeding — People who are rushing to school, appointments and business meetings may follow too closely or make other driving errors that result in an accident.
- Drunk driving — Drivers who choose to drink and drive place the lives of others on the roadway at risk.
- Reckless driving — Careening between lanes, driving too fast for weather conditions or driving in other reckless ways increases the likelihood of an accident.
- Inexperience — Teens and other inexperienced drivers are more likely to cause accidents.
- Defective parts — Worn tires, faulty brakes and other automotive defects can cause serious accidents, including vehicle rollovers.
To ensure your claim is as comprehensive and accurate as possible, we will conduct a thorough investigation to determine what caused your accident and will use that evidence to hold the responsible party or parties accountable for your injuries. We will also ensure your claim is filed within the state’s three-year statute of limitations so that you don’t lose your right to sue.
Skilled litigator pursues maximum compensation for your crash injuries
A car crash, truck collision, or pedestrian accident can happen in a second, causing physical and financial pain that lasts long after the incident. Accident injuries can range from broken bones to traumatic brain injury, affecting your ability to work and earn a living or even limiting your ability to handle the common tasks of day-to-day life. We represent accident victims throughout Washington in personal injury claims that seek full and fair compensation for their losses, which may include damages for past and future medical bills, lost income, emotional distress, and pain and suffering.
To ensure your payments cover both current expenses and future costs, we also consult medical experts, forensics engineers, mechanics, accident-reconstruction analysts, and other professionals to deliver compelling testimony on your behalf. By proving the cause of your accident and extent of your injuries, we have the best chance of negotiating a settlement that fully addresses your needs. Leslie Bottimore is known as a seasoned litigator, which often motivates opposing counsel to offer a favorable settlement to avoid the uncertainty and cost of trial. However, if a fair settlement cannot be reached, we won’t hesitate to take your case to court.
