How should you proceed if you were hit by an uninsured driver?

Being involved in a car accident in Washington is never something you hope for, but it can be significantly more frustrating if you find out that the person who crashed into you does not have insurance. Ultimately, this means you are left to forge the costs of the repairs on your own unless you can successfully get the money from the responsible party. Being aware of how to proceed with a motorist that does not have insurance can help you to make the right decisions to hopefully limit the impact your situation has on you. 

Motor vehicle accidents can lead to bodily injury for pedestrians

Walking is a great exercise for you that is enjoyed by many Washington residents. However, with its many benefits comes the slight risk of being a pedestrian involved in an automobile accident.

We here at Cooney Law Offices recognize the severity of being a pedestrian victim of a car accident. 

What should you do if a dog bites your child?

While most dogs in Washington are friendly and make good pets, there are still circumstances that may lead them to bite. In many cases, the victim of a dog bite is a child. Responding correctly if a dog bites your child may help you reduce the risk of further injury or infection. The first thing to do is move yourself and your child to a safe location away from the dog. Once you are there, you may start providing first aid to your child.

Post-surgery tips for facilitating a healthy recovery

When people are preparing for a surgical procedure in Washington, they often take into consideration the suggestions of their health care provider for behaviors they can implement to prepare for a successful surgery.

When people are vigilant in making sure they are following their doctor's orders, they can be more confident in their ability to facilitate their recovery in a safe and healthy way.

Due to motor vehicle accidents, sports or recreation injuries, or any other number of factors, the spinal cord or the nerves at the end of the spinal canal may be damaged, resulting in spinal cord injuries.

Therefore, it may be helpful to understand how your life may be affected by a spinal cord injury.

Pedestrian deaths highest since 1990

Pedestrians in Washington do their best to keep themselves and their family members safe, but every so often tragedy strikes. According to CNN, in 2018, the deaths that resulted from accidents involving pedestrians was the highest it has ever been since 1990. The estimate for 2018 now stands at 6,227 pedestrians killed by car crashes. This represents a 35 percent spike from prior years. It is also reasonable to conclude that for the thousands that were killed, thousands more were injured.
