Being involved in a car accident is awful; being involved in one that isn't your fault is horrible. You may be injured, your medical bills could be through the roof and you may be missing work. How do you recover from this? How will your car be replaced? Why are the insurance companies pressuring you now?
There was a five-car accident, a pile-up that was near Cle Elum, Washington, recently. According to the Washington State Patrol, a Pasco, Washington, woman was severely injured in this tragic accident.
The 40-year-old woman, who was driving a 2000 Honda Accord was traveling eastward on Interstate 90. She was forced to slow down because of traffic and became involved in this multi-car accident.
She was taken to Kittitas Valley Hospital for treatment. She was hit by a 69-year-old man who was driving a 2011 Honda Accord. He was injured also in the accident and was taken to the same hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Another person involved, a 47-year-old woman, was uninjured and was able to have her car driven from the site of the accident. One man, a 30-year-old who drove a Honda CRV, was not injured and was able to drive his own car from the accident. Finally, a 47-year-old woman of Wapato, Washington, was not injured and her car had little damage so it was also driven from the site of the crash.
If you have been involved in a car accident, you know that just dealing with an insurance company can be difficult. You need time to heal. Your car needs to be replaced, and your medical bills need to be paid. An experienced attorney can provide you with options during this difficult time.
