  • Investigate the collision: We can conduct an independent investigation into your car accident. Here, our team reviews the police report and any photographs taken at the scene. We can also speak to witnesses and use their statements to bolster your claim.
  • Calculate your losses: Our team wants to recover every dime you deserve. To do this, we can review your losses and calculate their values. This serves as a starting point when we negotiate with the insurer.
  • Negotiate a fair settlement: We can present evidence to the liable party and negotiate a fair agreement. Our team has strong negotiations with a track record that speaks for itself. During all negotiations, we also protect you from bad faith insurance practices.
  • Litigate your case: Our lawyers can fight for you in court if the insurance company doesn’t offer a fair settlement. To advance your lawsuit, we can file all paperwork, adhere to all state-mandated deadlines, and explain your options.

Compensation You Could Recover After a Seattle Car Accident

As you already know, suffering injuries in a car accident can bring financial challenges. If your injuries prevent you from working, you could lose a lot of money. Medical bills could also put you in dire financial straits. Thankfully, you can seek compensation from the liable party.

Types of compensation you could recover include:

Economic Damages (Your Losses With Financial Values)

Our team can help you seek compensation for your economic damages. These are your losses that come with inherent monetary values. Examples include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Occupational or physical therapy
  • In-home nursing care
  • Assistive mobility devices, such as wheelchairs
  • Lost income, tips, and bonuses
  • Property damage expenses

You could also recover the cost of anything you spent out of pocket as it relates to the crash. For instance, if your injuries prevent you from supervising your children, you could include the cost of daycare in your claim. We use your receipts, bills, and invoices to learn how much your economic damages are worth.

Non-Economic Damages (Your Losses Without Financial Values)

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to file a lawsuit to recover non-economic damages, like pain and suffering. We could negotiate a settlement that includes those losses with the insurance company. When you partner with a car accident lawyer from our firm, we intend to fight for:

  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of enjoyment
  • Loss of consortium

You Have a Limited Time to File a Car Accident Lawsuit in Washington State

After suffering injuries in a car accident, you must file a lawsuit before the statute of limitations runs out. RCW § 4.16.080 notes that, in Washington State, you generally have three years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit.

While our attorney hopes to settle outside of court, we must still commence legal proceedings before the three years. While three years sounds like a long time, there are many procedures we must go through before filing a lawsuit. For that reason, we encourage you to contact our team as soon as possible.

We Can Learn the Cause of Your Car Accident in Seattle

Learning the cause of your accident allows us to determine fault and liability for your losses. As noted, we use the police report, eyewitness testimony, and dashcam footage to learn your collision’s cause.
Some causes of collisions in Seattle and the surrounding areas include:

  • Distracted driving: With cellphone usage on the rise, many people text while driving, taking their eyes off the road. If another driver’s distraction caused your accident, we can hold them accountable. We may even request a copy of their cellphone records to further bolster your claim.
  • Driving while intoxicated: Driving while intoxicated can cause significant impairments. If a drunk driver caused your collision in Seattle, their arrest records could supplement your case.
  • Reckless driving: Reckless driving is an umbrella term for any behavior behind the wheel that puts others at risk. Examples include speeding, weaving in and out of lanes, and disobeying traffic signals.
  • Driver fatigue: Driving while fatigued causes many of the same impairments as drunk driving. While the state doesn’t have any explicit laws against driver fatigue, it still constitutes negligence.

Another driver’s error might not have caused your accident. For instance, poor roadway conditions could have caused the crash. In that instance, we could hold a government municipality accountable for your damages.
