Personal Injuries in Skagit County

A personal injury occurs when someone else causes an incident that harms you. This can happen under varying circumstances.

Each year, alcohol-impaired, speeding, distracted, and otherwise negligent drivers contribute to crashes, accidental injuries, and death. Washington State Department of Transportation’s most recent annual accident statistics document 59,466 crashes throughout the state. The data shows these statistics for vehicle accidents in Skagit County.

Premises Liability Accidents

Sometimes accidents and injuries occur due to a property owner’s negligence. They happen because of poor maintenance, safety issues, deterioration, and other negligent or intentional acts. These conditions often cause falls, pool-related injuries, electrical burns, and other trauma. If the property owner causes or contributes to these injuries, they may owe compensation to the injured party.

Dog Bite Injuries

In most situations, a property owner is strictly liable if their dog injures someone in a public place. If the injury occurs on their premises, the owner may avoid responsibility unless the victim is on the property with express or implied permission.

Severe Injuries

Depending on the type of accident and the severity, serious or catastrophic injuries are always a possibility. These injuries often require extended recovery times, costly medical treatment, and rehabilitation. Often the injured victim must learn to manage lifelong impairments.

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

At Bonin Law, our personal injury lawyers have the legal knowledge and resources to handle your case, regardless of your injury severity.

Wrongful Death

If someone fatally injures your loved one, Washington’s Wrongful Death codes may allow you to seek compensation. We have resolved many cases on behalf of decendents’ beneficiaries. Asserting your rights usually requires early action and compliance with court mandates and deadlines. We have found that our law firm can best meet these legal demands when we receive notice of your loved one’s accident as soon as possible.

Recoverable Damages For a Personal Injury Claim

When we resolve a claim for our injured clients, a settlement or judgment usually includes:

  • Economic Damages: This includes incurred medical bills, lost income, medication, therapies, prostheses, and other out-of-pocket expenses for treatment, recovery, rehabilitation, and mobility.
  • Non-Economic damages: We settle non-economic damages based on a negotiated value for pain, suffering, disability, disfigurement, loss of consortium, and other subjective damages.

Settlements and court judgments also consider whether an injured person contributed to an accident. Compensation sometimes reflects a reduction based on the injured person’s negligence percentage.

Statute of Limitations

In Washington, you have three years from an accident date to resolve any injury claims. You lose your right to make a claim if you fail to settle or file a lawsuit by your deadline.

Three years can seem like a long time, but when you’re recovering from injuries, it’s easy to lose track of your target date. To avoid time-related issues, we recommend that you contact Bonin Law as soon as possible after someone injures you.
