Losing a loved one due to wrongful death is a devastating experience. When a family member's life is suddenly cut short as a result of the carelessness or negligence of another, the grief and feelings of loss can be overwhelming. If this has happened in your family, you may be going through a complex array of emotions, including sadness, denial, anger, and hopelessness. No one is ever prepared for such a tragic event.
Statistically, children under age 16 are the most likely to be struck by a car, but elderly victims are the most likely to die as a result of pedestrian or crosswalk accident injuries. Most pedestrian accidents occur on the weekends during the evening hours. Pedestrian accidents in the late afternoon increase when daylight savings time is removed in the winter and the sun sets earlier.
According to a report issued by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), more than 2,000 children are killed in accidents or die from an unintentional injury every day. And every year tens of millions of children are left with life-long disabilities.
Serious and catastrophic injuries, such as a severe head injury or an injury resulting in a major loss of function or amputation of an arm or leg, are not like whiplash or broken bones. These types of serious injuries are on an entirely different level. They may never heal and often take away physical abilities, brain and motor functions and enjoyment of life.
People that take advantage of public and private transportation systems, such as ferries, street cars, buses, taxis, limos, and shuttles expect those systems to be safe. But operator error, mechanical failures and other dangerous conditions contribute to numerous accidents involving Seattle and Puget Sound area public and private transit systems each year.
