Putting community first

At Dean Standish Perkins & Associates, we feel that Seattle would be a better place if we no longer had any work to do. In fact, part of our work as Washington injury lawyers is to attempt to put ourselves out of a job -- by making the state as safe as possible.

Road construction and bicycle accidents

Bicyclists face all sorts of hazards, but the summer months may introduce additional risk factors that can increase the chances of something going wrong on the road. For example, road construction can pose a number of risks to bicyclists as well as drivers and pedestrians. Work zones can be dangerous for many reasons and a number of people have been hurt in accidents occurring in these environments. If you encounter a work zone while riding your bicycle, it is imperative to be particularly cautious.

Headaches after a car crash

Some auto accident injuries become evident immediately, such as a broken bone or a laceration. However, other injuries may not be noticeable until some point in the future, such as brain trauma. Some car accident victims may walk away from a wreck and believe that they were unharmed in the incident, but these injuries can be very severe and may adversely impact the lives of victims in countless ways. If you are experiencing headaches after a car crash, it is imperative to figure out whether or not you sustained a brain injury or some other type of injury in the accident.

Train accidents during the summertime

During the summer months, accidents are especially likely to take place for a myriad of reasons. Since many children are out of school and a lot of people decide to walk or ride their bicycle because of the warmer weather, the risk of an accident may be particularly high in Seattle and across the state of Washington. Not only are accidents involving motor vehicles especially likely during this time of year, but the risk of train accidents may also be higher. For example, a pedestrian, bicyclist or driver may be struck by a train, which could lead to devastating consequences.

What is negligent entrustment?

Your car accident in Seattle can leave you facing an inordinate amount of unplanned expenses. While you likely do not want to seem as though you are attempting to punish the driver responsible for your collision, circumstances may make it necessary for you to hold them legally liable. Yet what happens when you discover that the car they were driving was not there's, and that the reason they were not in their own vehicle is because their past conduct behind the wheel kept them from being licensed or carrying insurance. Your understanding may quickly turn to anger towards whoever entrusted them with their vehicle. 

Starting a new job after a car crash

Motor vehicle collisions can derail victims' lives in numerous ways, whether they suffer serious injuries or have a hard time paying medical expenses. Sometimes, these challenges can have an impact on other aspects of life, such as one's ability to continue working in a particular field. For example, someone who is employed in the construction industry may need to find a job that is less physically demanding as a result of car crash injuries. Our law firm understands how stressful and frustrating it can be to lose the ability to work in a certain field, especially for accident victims who are facing other challenges.
