Traffic Violations and Monetary Compensation

Filing Suit After a Failure to Obey Accident​

Due to the serious influence traffic violations can have on you, your career, and your family life, Washington law allows you to seek compensation for all kinds of injuries and losses, including:

Medical Expenses

The more serious the injury, the more you could end up spending on:

  • Visits to doctors, dentists, psychiatrists, specialists, and other medical professionals
  • Prescription medications
  • Assistive devices, like hearing aids or prosthetic limbs, to help improve your quality of life
  • Renovating your house to accommodate permanent disabilities
  • Home nursing or other types of long-term care
  • Travel to and from doctor’s appointments

We can determine how much you have already spent on doctor’s bills, as well as how much you may have to spend in the future if your injuries are severe. 

Loss of Income

A relatively minor injury could force you to miss work for a few days or weeks. If your injuries are permanent, you may have to retire early, or at the very least reduce your working hours. As a result, you could temporarily or permanently lose the money you need to pay household bills and other expenses.

You could be reimbursed for lost income if:

  • You took time off to let your injuries heal
  • You will never be able to work as much as you did before
  • You were fired from your job because of the accident and/or your injuries
  • Your recuperation has cost you certain job benefits or the possibility of promotion
  • You need to abandon your old field and train for a completely new job

As with medical expenses, it is important to determine both past and future losses so you can get a fair amount of compensation.

Non-Economic Damages

This is the legal term for the physical and emotional toll an accident can have, including:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of reputation
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Disfiguring marks or scars
  • Physical or mental disabilities
  • Loss of consortium (i.e., alterations in your relationship with loved ones)

A lawyer from our firm can determine what amount covers all of your losses from the accident.
