Car seat expiration dates are not just a suggestion

For many Washington parents, one of their top priorities, when they are traveling places, is to protect their children. Often, they research car seat brands and models. They compare subjects like price, functionality and versatility in making sure their selection will be the best fit for their child. Once installed, many parents make sure their child is safely fastened into his or her car seat before leaving anywhere. 

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. 

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.

What is Washington's DUI-E law?

Most people have heard of distracted driving, but many drivers are not familiar with the recently-enacted DUI-E law in Washington. If you live in Seattle, or elsewhere in the state, it is pivotal to be aware of this law and avoid any distractions that could lead to a crash. Furthermore, you should swiftly review your legal options and take action if you are ever struck by a driver who is in violation of the state's DUI-E law.

When your pet is hurt in a car crash

Car accidents can leave people with devastating injuries or even claim their lives. However, it is important to remember that these accidents can have other ramifications also. For example, a beloved pet, such as a dog, may be involved in an accident and sustain an injury. This may result in financial burdens such as vet bills or emotional pain due to losing a pet that has been cherished by an entire family for years. As a result, whenever these crashes are caused by another driver’s irresponsibility, they should be held accountable for all the suffering they cause.

Could I-5 one day be a big place for self-driving trucks?

How safe driving saves money

Owning a car is expensive. Aside from financing the vehicle itself, drivers also pay for maintenance, gas, insurance and the occasional repair. Because a vehicle is often the next biggest expense after housing, it makes sense that drivers don’t want to spend more than necessary.

Without a witness, can you prove someone else is at fault?

When the crash happened, nobody else was around. Perhaps it was late at night or on a rural road. The other driver blames you for the accident, but you believe it may have been their poor decisions that led to the crash in the first place. What are you to do now?
