Accidents happen every day. People get hurt in auto accidents, slip and fall accidents, and many other situations. Sometimes these accidents are due, at least to some degree, to someone else’s actions. The legal term for the harm they experience is “personal injury” and often the victim is entitled to payment of their medical bills or other compensation.
Auto Accidents Attorney
If you have been in an auto accident and were injured, you could receive compensation to pay for your medical expenses (past and future), future lost earnings, lost income, pain and suffering, and other related damages. It doesn’t matter if you are the driver, a passenger, a pedestrian, a bicyclist, or a motorcyclist, you could have the grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit. Auto accident personal injury cases are usually settled outside of the courtroom, but you need a good personal injury attorney to negotiate on your behalf to ensure that you get all of the compensation that you deserve.
Personal Injury Law in Seattle
Washington state’s laws governing the civil statute of limitations provide a two-year limit for filing personal injury lawsuits. That two-year period begins when the injured party knows or should have known that they suffered harm. Missing that deadline usually means missing out on the case and any compensation that may have been owed to you. That is why it is vital that you see an attorney as soon after your accident or injury as possible.
