Common sense and responsibility can prevent road debris

When people are confronted with the topic of car accidents in Washington, their immediate thoughts may turn to factors like distraction, inclement weather or negligence of some kind. While each of these reasons is undoubtedly causes of certain crashes, another hazard that can set the foundation for a disastrous accident is road debris. 

Support staff decisions for a new lawyer

As young lawyers navigate the terrain of setting up a successful practice, they eventually find nonbillable duties burden their time. Hours a new layer spends on clerical tasks take away from time spent on building a successful practice. It may be advantageous to look at hiring support staff. A legal practice can employ several types of personnel, depending on its size and type of practice.

How can you help at the scene of a car accident?

There is little else as unsettling as witnessing a car accident and watching in horror as a scene unfolds that you have no control over. Concerned about the other motorists who are involved in the collision, your first instinct may be to get out and help them. However, being familiar with how to approach an accident scene in Washington can help you work with confidence and clarity. 

Keeping passengers safe on your motorcycle

At Dean Standish Perkins & Associates, we have helped many people who have been the victims of an unfortunate motorcycle accident. 

New technology is helping motorcyclists enjoy a safer ride

Motorcycle sales in the U.S. have increased dramatically: as much as 90 percent since 1991. However, more motorcycles on the road mean more concerns for rider safety. Car and truck drivers are often the negligent parties in vehicle-motorcycle collisions. Since motorcyclists are more vulnerable than drivers in cars or trucks, they usually suffer more serious results such as broken bones or head and chest injuries if involved in a crash.

Child safety seat recommendations

In the ideal world, motor vehicle accidents would never happen. In today's world, however, residents in Washington State know that accidents can and do happen. Therefore, being prepared by taking precautions to reduce injuries in the event of a crash is not only an important thing to do but is also the responsible thing to do. For parents, relatives or caregivers who transport children, care should be taken to ensure that the proper safety seats are used.

How can I recognize a drunk driver?

Drunk drivers pose a huge risk to everyone on the roadways in Washington, but they can be especially devastating for motorcyclists. If you ride a bike, then you know how important it is to stay alert and aware of the vehicles around you on the road. To protect yourself and others, you should understand how to recognize a drunk driver so you can report them and get them off the road before they have a chance to hurt anybody.
