Every car accident has the potential to inflict serious and grievous injuries upon its victims. While some may escape their ordeals with only minor harm, others may be affected by car accident injuries for the rest of their lives. One of the most serious injuries that a Washington resident may suffer in a vehicle collision is a spinal cord injury.
Depending upon the type of road that a Washington resident must travel on, their speed may be relatively low or quite fast. Local roads through neighborhoods and congested commercial areas often have low speed limits because there are more vehicles, pedestrians and obstacles for drivers to look out for. On interstates and highways, though, speed limits are much higher as many such hazards are presumed to be removed from the paths of drivers.
