A Law Firm That Handles Fatigued/Asleep at the Wheel Accidents
Crash victims in Vancouver, WA, count on Colin
A big problem for many people is not getting enough sleep. When those people get behind the wheel of a car, it can be an even bigger problem. Fatigued drivers can cause car accidents that leave others with serious injuries. The Scott Law Firm, PLLC helps injury victims throughout Clark County and Southwest Washington get the financial compensation they deserve.
When people drive fatigued, they struggle to pay attention to the road. Their ability to make good decisions is affected. Their reaction times are slower if they need to brake or steer suddenly. Some drivers actually fall asleep at the wheel while driving. Fatigued accident attorney Colin Scott has seen the damage from accidents caused by these drivers.
Fatigued driving is an act of negligence, because those drivers chose to drive when they were very tired. This puts other drivers and passengers on the road at risk. The victims of the accidents they cause may suffer serious injuries that can require surgery, hospitalization, medication and physical therapy.
But recovering financial compensation for injuries sustained in an accident with a fatigued driver can be complicated. These drivers usually don't admit they were tired, and this can be difficult to prove. And insurance companies are always looking for any excuse to pay you as little as possible. They may try to minimize your injuries, or they may blame you for causing the accident.
That's why you need an experienced accident attorney who knows how to build strong cases that get results. Our firm focuses our efforts on helping accident victims get the best possible outcome after their accident. We want to help our clients recover the maximum financial compensation possible so they can rebuild their lives and move forward.
Fighting for the compensation you deserve
Attorney Colin Scott regularly investigates car accidents to find out what really happened. This often includes reviewing relevant documentation related to the crash, including property damage estimates and police reports. It can also include interviewing witnesses, over the phone or with assistance from a private investigator. It can also include reviewing the other driver's criminal history for prior convictions that show they are dishonest. Colin knows where to look for this evidence and how to obtain it when appropriate. If needed, he can also consult with one or more experts and specialists who can help support a claim for liability and damages in your case.
When insurance companies see that Colin is serious about a case and is prepared to fight them in court, they may agree to enter into settlement negotiations. But that doesn't mean they have your best interests in mind. It can sometimes mean they want to make a quick settlement that doesn't cover all your damages and helps them save money.
That is not acceptable. Colin fights for a resolution of your case that meets your needs. This includes compensation for current and future medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages that may be available to you such as pain and suffering.
If you were injured in an accident that you believe was caused by a fatigued driver, talk to a lawyer as soon as possible. It's generally preferable to start work on a case before evidence is lost or destroyed, and while the memories of witnesses are still fresh.
