What Can Our Legal Team Do For You?

  • Driver and witness statements
  • Police reports
  • Site investigation
  • Legal research
  • Other relevant evidence
  • Legal research
  • Other relevant evidence

Identify Responsible Parties

We confirm the driver’s identity and examine potential negligent entrustment issues. For a commercial driver, we also identify the employer/transport company, negligent repair contractors, shippers, loaders, and any contractually liable parties.

Evaluate Liability

We review evidence, traffic codes, case law, legal issues, and potential defenses to determine each negligent party’s contribution to the accident.

Place Negligent Parties on Notice

We advise negligent parties of our client’s pending injury claims and request that they notify their insurers.

Evaluate Injuries

We review medical records and bills, physician’s narrative reports, recent settlements, and jury verdicts for similar injuries. This helps us determine an appropriate value for an injury claim.

Confirm First and Third Party Insurance Coverages

We verify liability coverage and establish communication with insurance carriers. If a negligent driver has no insurance, we determine if our client has uninsured motorist coverage for their bodily injury damages. Clients usually handle No-Fault claims directly with insurers.

Resolve Injury Claims

At the appropriate time, we present our client’s case to the insurance carriers. If the liability carriers don’t negotiate fairly, we may mediate the case or file a lawsuit.

Car Accident Injuries

Accident circumstances and victim protection systems usually affect injury severity. Speeding, distracted, and substance-impaired drivers don’t simply lose control of their vehicles. Their actions often produce an intense impact and serious or catastrophic injuries. When large commercial trucks cause a crash, victims often sustain devastating injuries. Because of minimal protection or no protection at all, Motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians are the most vulnerable victims under all accident circumstances.

Our attorneys have resolved cases involving a wide range of injuries.

Spinal cord and disc injuries
Contusions
Muscle sprains and strains
Traumatic brain injuries (including concussions)
Fractures
Traumatic amputations
Burns
Road rash
Internal organ damage
Fatal injuries

Recoverable Damages

When we settle a claim, we recover damages based on two categories.

    ●     Economic: Medical bills, lost wages, medications, and other costs incurred during treatment, recovery, and rehabilitation.

    ●     Non-Economic damages: We negotiate a value for pain, suffering, disability, disfigurement, loss of consortium, and other subjectively assessed damages

All settlements and judgments consider Washington’s Contributory Fault statute. A settlement may reflect a reduction based on an injured person’s negligence percentage.

A Car Accident Lawyer Can Protect Your Statute of Limitations

You have three years from the date of your accident to settle your claim, file a lawsuit, or lose your right to make a claim. When you’re recovering from an accident, you can easily miss this critical deadline. That’s why we recommend that you contact our car accident attorney immediately after your accident.
