On long straightaways on Spokane County’s rural highways, drivers can be lulled into a state of inattention and lose their focus on traffic. Another vehicle stopping or turning can come as a surprise to drivers traveling at full speed and they may be unable to slow down in time to avoid an impact.
Drivers and passengers can suffer traumatic injuries such as whiplash, traumatic head injuries, and even broken bones in a collision. It’s critical that victims receive the best health care available to make sure a full recovery is possible.

Assistance for Spokane County Highway Accident Victims
Motorists can suffer serious injuries due to a reckless driver’s mistake, but not every wound is apparent in the moments after a collision. The shock and adrenaline of what’s happened can mask pain for victims until the next morning or the next day. Collision victims should always see a doctor soon after an accident to make sure hairline fractures or internal bleeding aren’t an issue.
Accident victims can face long, expensive injury recoveries and they should be able to seek damages from at-fault drivers and their auto insurance providers. Compensation should be available to pay for every hospital bill and physical therapy appointment. The lost time at work a victim experiences while trying to heal must also be replaced. No accident victims should have to pay for their own care in a crash they didn’t cause.
