The Answers And Information You Need
Personal injury claims are very complex. Fortunately, our knowledgeable team can answer any questions you have – you can begin here.
Do I have a personal injury cases?
You might have an actionable personal injury claim if:
- Someone had a duty to provide a certain level of care
- They breached this duty
- As a result, they caused an accident
- The accident left you with damages
If you and your injury lawyer can prove these elements, you might have a case for monetary compensation.
How do injury claims work?
After an accident, the other party’s insurance company usually offers a much lower settlement than what you deserve. If your attorney feels that they are not making a fair offer and they will not budge on the amount, your personal injury lawyer can file a lawsuit against the insurer. This often prompts them to make a better offer in pretrial negotiations; if not, you might have to go to court.
What is the statute of limitations on personal injury claims?
In Washington State, you have three years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury lawsuit.
How are damages determined in a lawsuit?
There is no formula for calculating damages. A few factors include:
- Your past and current medical bills
- Future medical needs you might have
- Wages you lost
- The loss of your earning potential
These are just a few methods for calculating damages. Our personal injury compensation lawyers can give you a more accurate idea of the value of your claim.
Should I talk to my insurance company?
No. The insurance representative will try to get you to admit fault, even if you have none. Instead, insist on hiring a personal injury attorney before you talk to the insurer.
