Rear-End Accidents

Rear-end collisions are common in traffic on highways such as I-90 as well as busy streets in downtown Spokane. Texting and distracted drivers often cause rear-end collisions, as they're not always paying attention to the vehicles in front of them. Another common location for rear-end accidents is at crosswalks: One car stops to yield to a pedestrian, but the driver behind doesn't see the pedestrian and rear-ends the car in front.

While rear-end accidents may seem straightforward - after all, a motorist who rear-ends another car is automatically liable - legal cases involving them can be anything but simple. The insurance company may refuse to pay your bills and dispute your injuries. That's why you need an experienced attorney on your side.

Head-On Collisions

Most head-on collisions involve drunk or asleep-at-the-wheel drivers, but a number of other factors can also come into play, such as distracted driving and mechanical issues with the steering. Unfortunately, head-on crashes are some of the deadliest accidents. Because of the sheer amount of force involved when two cars collide head-on, serious injuries and fatalities are common.

Head-on collisions are always serious accidents, and those accidents demand serious representation. Richard E. Lewis is an experienced, compassionate attorney who understands just how devastating head-on collisions can be. Whether you're fighting for compensation for your own injuries or for a loved one who was injured or killed, he'll be with you every step of the way.

Intersection/T-Bone Accidents

A "T-bone" accident, more formally known as a side-impact collision, happens when the front of one car strikes the side of another. These broadside accidents most often happen at intersections. For instance, you might have been T-boned when another driver ran a red light while you were legally crossing an intersection with a green light, or you may have hit another car when its driver failed to yield and made an unprotected turn.

Side-impact collisions are uniquely dangerous because there is very little protection - just a door and a window - between the driver or passenger and the other vehicle, compared to the several feet of steel involved in front or rear accidents. Because of the circumstances involved in intersection accidents, either driver might be considered at fault. That's why, if you've been hurt in such a collision, you need a veteran attorney on your side, protecting your rights.

Hit-and-Run Accidents

In the state of Washington, it's illegal to leave the scene of an accident without stopping to exchange insurance information with the other drivers involved. There's never a good reason to hit and run, but some drivers do it anyway. They may be driving drunk or involved in some other illegal activity, or they may be afraid of being found at fault for the accident.

After a hit-and-run crash, you may not know what to do. That's why you need us on your side to explore your legal options. If the driver who hit you can't be found, you may be able to recover damages from your own insurance through your personal injury protection or uninsured motorist coverage - after all, a driver they can't find is uninsured by default. The other driver may have left you at the scene, but we'll be right by your side from start to finish.

Uninsured or Underinsured Driver Accidents

While Washington requires all drivers to have insurance, many ignore the laws - nearly one in six motorists in our state is driving without insurance. Even drivers who have insurance don't always have enough coverage to pay for all of your losses. That means that if you're involved in an accident, the other motorist's insurance policy may not provide the compensation you need.

Accidents involving uninsured or underinsured drivers can lead to difficult legal cases. You may be able to get compensation from your own insurance through your uninsured or underinsured motorist protection, if you have it. You may also be able to sue the other driver directly. Either way, you need an attorney with experience handling these types of cases on your side. You need Richard E. Lewis.
