Personal injury: Hit-and-run accident leaves woman hospitalized

When a person chooses to leave the scene of an accident, authorities may have reason to suspect some level of fault or wrong-doing. Countless individuals have been forced to suffer following a hit-and-run accident, some of whom may choose to pursue compensation through a personal injury claim. A recent accident in Washington that occurred under similar circumstances has left a 26-year-old woman in the hospital.

According to reports, the woman was traveling west on Interstate 82 on a recent Sunday when another vehicle suddenly slammed into her own. The other vehicle was apparently covering two lanes prior to the incident, and eventually collided with the rear driver side of her car. After pulling off the road, the woman claims the other driver suddenly decided to leave the scene of the accident, and she was reportedly taken to the hospital shortly thereafter, where she remained the following morning.

Family law issues concerning the impact of divorce on kids

There may often be numerous influential factors involved in the decision to dissolve a marriage. For couples in Washington who have children together, there might be additional concerns regarding the potential impact such a decision might have on the young ones. This is often one of the toughest family law issues, and the topic may also have sparked countless conversations in the past concerning the potential advantages and disadvantages of remaining married for the kids.

Attempting to remain in a relationship for the sake of the children may offer various benefits. Kids often grow accustomed to family routines, and keeping traditions such as holiday celebrations intact might prove beneficial in the long run. Remaining together may also offer some form of financial stability as well, which kids may benefit from throughout the process of growing up.

Personal injury: 1 facing charges after fatal collision

Countless individuals in Washington and elsewhere choose motorcycles as their favored means of transportation. Although there may be a certain level of freedom involved in this form of travel, there are also some risks that accompany a lesser amount of protection, causing many motorcycle accidents to end in disaster. Those who are seriously injured in a similar incident may often choose to pursue compensation through a personal injury claim should another driver be deemed at fault.

A recent accident involving three vehicles has claimed the life of a motorcyclist. According to reports, a woman was traveling east in an SUV when she suddenly slammed into the back of the motorcycle. The person driving the bike was unfortunately pronounced dead at the scene, and the driver of the SUV was taken in for medical attention after being extracted from her vehicle.

Family law and child custody arrangements

As a Washington couple prepares to divorce, there are often numerous decisions to be made. In addition to how assets will be divided and who will be responsible for paying specific liabilities, decisions regarding any children need to be made. These decisions often revolve around the type of custody arrangement and where will the children live. In an ideal situation, the parents are able to work this out; however, it is still a good idea to review the situation and agreement with one's family law attorney.

Physical custody refers to which parent the children will live with a majority of the time. Many times, physical custody is awarded to one parent in an effort to minimize the upheaval caused by the children constantly moving between homes. This is the individual who will provide the day-to-day care for the children. Physical custody does not, however, mean that the other parent is not a part of the children's lives; this parent typically maintains visitation rights on a regular, ongoing basis.

Personal injury: 3 dead, more injured in accident in Washington

Losing a loved one in a tragic accident is something no family should have to endure. Unfortunately, motor vehicle collisions are far too common, each of which has the potential to end in disaster. Victims of similar incidents often experience periods of financial struggle, prompting many to seek relief through a personal injury claim. A recent accident in Washington has claimed the life of three individuals and injured several more.

The accident occurred in the early hours of the morning on a recent Thursday when a vehicle apparently hit a van at an intersection. The van was pushed off of the road and rolled over multiple times, and several passengers were apparently ejected in the process. According to police, three of the individuals in the van died shortly after the accident, while all others involved were taken to the hospital for treatment of injuries.

Family law: Assistance in adjusting a child support agreement

Planning for the future might be important to many individuals in Washington and across the country, but covering every possible change in life can be difficult, if not impossible. Sudden changes can create various challenges in life, emotional and financial alike. For a parent who has a previous child support agreement, such events can be significantly more troublesome to overcome, potentially prompting a need for the guidance of a family law attorney.

At the time of the agreement, an individual might have found it acceptable and fair, while providing for the needs of his or her children. However, over time certain circumstances may arise that spark a need to revisit the previous agreement and make necessary modifications. Whether on account of a loss of income, or perhaps an increase thereof, adjustments to the original arrangement may be in order.

5-car collision leads to 4-year-old girl's severe personal injury

A great deal of accidents involving multiple vehicles are the result of one driver's actions, which then sets off a chain reaction that can end in disaster. Individuals who suffer serious injuries in the process may subsequently pursue a personal injury claim against the party or parties deemed responsible. A multiple-vehicle collision involving several individuals in Washington injured two young children, one of which is listed in critical condition.

Emergency personnel recently responded to a call in relation to a five-car accident that took place just after 3 p.m. According to reports, a driver lost control of her vehicle and collided with the guardrails on both sides of a bridge. Four other vehicles were reportedly unable to avoid collision, one after another apparently colliding with the car in front of them in sequence.
