Victims May Be Entitled to Compensation in their Personal Injury Case
Treating and recovering from an injury can put financial strain on not just you, but also your family. If you are injured and unable to work, you are going to be concerned about how you are supposed to pay your bills and make sure that your family is cared for. Thankfully, when your accident is the fault of another party, you are able to recover compensation for everything that you suffered as a result of the incident.
Economic damages are items that have a specific monetary value attached to them. These are the most straightforward damages that you will recover following your injury. These damages include:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
- Property damage if it resulted from your accident
These damages are easy to place a monetary value on because they come with receipts, bills, pay stubs, or other easily accessible documentation.
It is not as easy to place a monetary value on non-economic damages, but when they are added to your settlement, they can greatly increase the value of the compensation you receive. Non-economic damages include:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental Anguish
- Loss of enjoyment of life
When you speak with a lawyer, it is important that you explain everything that has changed in your life since your accident. Do not disregard certain hardships you have been experiencing because you do not think you will be able to add them to your claim.
How Can Herschensohn Law Help?
After you suffer an injury, recovering damages can feel overwhelming. As you are trying to recover from your injuries, you may not have the time or the energy to also file a lawsuit. However, with our personal injury lawyers by your side, you can alleviate stress and give yourself a better chance of making a total financial recovery.
Proving Negligence and Liability
The most important factor when determining whether or not you have a claim is negligence. In the state of Washington, the injured party must prove that the responsible party was negligent in their actions.
The other party is negligent when they:
- Did not provide the proper duty of care to the injured party
- Did not provide ample warning of hazardous safety conditions
- Took actions that directly led to the injury of another person or persons
Our lawyers can help you prove negligence by reviewing documents related to your accident. This documentation could include police reports, security footage, eyewitness testimony, and any other valuable information that can prove that the other party was responsible for your injuries.
Adhering to the Statute of Limitations
In Washington, you have three years to file your lawsuit as defined in RCW 4.16.080. If you do not adhere to this time limit, then you may not be able to recover any damages for the injuries you suffered.
At Herschensohn Law, we will work quickly and thoroughly on your behalf to file your claim within the necessary timeframe.

At Herschensohn Law, we have a reputation in the state of Washington for doing everything necessary to get our clients the compensation they deserve. This means that we will go to court and represent you if it is the best way to ensure you receive what you are entitled to.
