An elderly man driving a Ford Explorer drove more than 10 feed inside a Federal Way bank, running over and injuring a customer.
The driver, a man in his 80s was reportedly using the drive through lane when he accidentally turned and accelerated through the wall of the bank, injuring those inside.
One person, in their late 40's or early 50's was hospitalized with non life threatening injuries while three others inside the bank were treated for injuries at the scene.
Investigators do not know what caused the man to drive into the bank at this time.
Vehicle Into Building Crashes
Vehicle into building crashes like this one can be incredibly dangerous for individuals inside the building who often have little to no warning or time to react to vehicles crashing into their spaces, destroying their surroundings and potentially bringing down dangerous rubble and debris.
Davis Law Group has previously handled vehicle into building accident cases including this accident where a woman was simply working at her desk when a driver drove through the wall, killing her.
Thankfully, reports thus far have indicated that no one at the scene of this incident was badly injured, with several people being treated at the scene and the one person who was hospitalized reportedly in stable condition.
Hopefully those who were treated at the scene still see their doctor after the incident and continue to follow up and monitor their injuries and condition to insure they do not develop any additional complications.
Some soft tissue injuries may take time before becoming apparent but could still require prolonged care and treatment that could be difficult to claim if insurance companies believe there was too large a gap in treatment.
Most importantly, until you know for sure the full extent of the injuries sustained after an accident, and treatment has been completed, you should never accept a settlement amount despite potential insurance company pressure to give you a quick check.
You only have one shot to settle a personal injury claim, that's why if you have any questions about a claim for yourself or a loved one, Davis Law Group is here to help.
