Just as in larger cities, Oak Harbor car accidents usually occur because of Risky Driving behaviors. The National Highway Transportation Administration documents the primary accident-causing behaviors as drunk driving, drug-impaired driving, and speeding. These negligent drivers cause damage and injuries when they lose control.

Car Accident Injuries

Injury severity usually depends on the accident circumstances. A minor impact often causes minor injuries, but it can also trigger long-term medical problems. Serious and catastrophic injuries often occur when a heavy vehicle strikes a much smaller car, a motorcyclist, or a pedestrian. When a driver speeds or fails to stop due to impairment or distraction, they often generate a more forceful impact that increases injury severity.

Our car accident attorneys work to recover damages for clients dealing with many types of accident-related injuries.

Spinal cord and disc injuries
Contusions
Muscle sprains and strains
Traumatic brain injuries (including concussions)
Fractures

Recoverable Damages For a Car Accident Claim

Our legal team works to recover all of the damages to which you are entitled.

  • Economic: Medical bills, lost wages, medications, and other costs incurred during treatment, recovery, and rehabilitation.
  • Non-Economic damages: The value of your pain, suffering, disability, disfigurement, loss of consortium, and other subjectively assessed damages

Under Washington’s Pure Comparative Negligence statute, settlements and judgments consider an injured victim’s negligence. If you contribute to an accident, your settlement reflects a reduction equal to your assessed negligence percentage.

Statute of Limitations

In Washington, you have three years from the date of your accident to make a claim. If you don’t settle your claim or file a lawsuit by your deadline, you lose your right to make a claim. While three years seems like a significant timeframe, you should never wait to consult with our car accident attorney. You need someone working to protect your legal rights as soon as possible.
