Personal Injuries In Shelton

In Shelton, personal injuries occur the same way they do in cities across the country. Someone commits a negligent act and it harms someone else. Incidents occur during public events, on commercial or private property, on roads and highways, and anywhere people gather.

Car Accidents

Washington State Department of Transportation’s most recent annual accident data shows that 226 car accidents in Shelton caused two fatalities, three suspected serious injuries, 16 suspected minor injuries, and 43 possible injuries.

These statistics seem small by big city standards, but when you’re the victim, you view them from a different perspective. Car accident injuries cause pain, suffering, impairment, and unanticipated financial and lifestyle changes. Our personal injury attorneys have recovered compensation for accident-related injuries involving:

●     Private Passenger Cars and Trucks

●     Motorcycles

●     Pedestrians

●     Bicycles

●     Commercial Trucks

●     Other Vehicles

Premises Liability Accidents

Premises liability accidents occur when a property owner fails to address adverse conditions. Innocent people sustain injuries due to inadequate security, poor maintenance, safety issues, and deterioration. These situations sometimes cause falls, pool-related injuries, electrical burns, intentional acts, and other incidents.

Property owners are strictly liable when their dog bites someone in a public place. If the attack occurs on the owner’s property, they are liable only for injuries to people with express or implied permission to be on the premises.

Severe Injuries

Any type of accident can cause or contribute to severe or catastrophic injuries. Injury severity usually depends on the accident circumstances.

  • Emergency rooms treated 3 million older adults for fall-related injuries nationwide. Thirty-six thousand of these fall victims sustained fatal injuries.
  • Speeding, distracted, or impaired drivers generate powerful crash impacts, extensive damage, and severe injuries.
  • When a vehicle strikes a smaller car, bicyclist, motorcyclist, or pedestrian, the difference in mass and force can cause life-threatening injuries.

These types of incidents often cause severe and catastrophic injuries.

  • Spinal Cord Trauma
  • Traumatic Digit and Limb Amputations
  • Multiple Fractures
  • Internal damage
  • Loss of Reproductive Organs
  • Anoxic and Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Catastrophic Burns
  • Total Loss of Vision

Fatal injuries

Wrongful Death

When someone causes your loved one’s death, Washington’s Wrongful Death codes allow beneficiaries to recover compensation. Our attorneys have worked with many bereaved families. We have handled their legal issues and complied with critical court deadlines while they worked through their grieving process.

Contact our law firm immediately if you suspect that someone caused your loved one’s fatal injuries. We can investigate the accident, intervene with liability insurers, and comply with legal mandates.

Recoverable Damages For a Personal Injury Claim

Our attorneys work to recover all of our clients’ damages. These may include:

●     Economic Damages: Medical bills, lost wages, medications, physical therapy, prostheses, and other documented expenses for treatment, recovery, rehabilitation, and mobility

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

If you or your loved one contributed to an accident, any settlement may reflect a reduction based on an insurer or court’s assessed negligence percentage.

Statute of Limitations

In Washington, the statute of limitations gives you three years from an accident date to finalize a claim or file a lawsuit. If you don’t comply with this deadline, you lose your right to make a claim.

When you’re recovering from accidental injuries, it’s easy to miss this important time limit. That’s why it’s essential to contact our law firm as soon as possible after your accident. Our personal injury attorneys can take immediate steps to protect your legal interests and meet important deadlines.
