Two people were taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle after they were injured in a single car accident near Lynnwood around 2am reports the Everett Herald.
According to the report, a 28-year-old woman was driving a Toyota eastbound on 204th Street SW when she ran a stop sign, went through the intersection and crashed into a power pole at Cypress Way.
Both the driver of the car and her passenger, a 32-year-old man, had to be extricated from the vehicle. Their injuries are thought to be serious but not life threatening.
Does insurance cover the driver in a single car accident?
Liability car insurance goes into effect when you are driving and you cause injury to another person and or damages to their vehicle. Liability insurance does not cover the driver when one is at fault for causing ones own injuries.
Liability insurance may be in play, however, if the driver had a medical condition that caused the accident or other factors were involved such as mechanical failure of the car or bad signage on the road.
A passenger in a car that is involved in a single car accident may have a claim against the driver’s insurance company.
In the case of any car accident where there are serious injuries, one is advised to seek the counsel of an experienced Washington car accident attorney to insure ones rights are protected.
