Why You Need a Personal Injury Attorney

No one should face severe injuries alone.

Whether you were hurt in a collision with a drunk driver or slipped in the supermarket, dealing with a serious injury anywhere in Washington can profoundly affect your physical and mental health, finances, career, and overall well-being. A personal injury lawyer who genuinely advocates for you can handle insurance negotiations, pursue rightful compensation, and guide your recovery.

Get Full & Fair Compensation for Your Losses

When you are considering a personal injury claim, you will undoubtedly have a lot of questions. First among them is likely “How much is my case worth?” After all, you’re probably seeing your monthly expenses piling up, along with overwhelming medical bills. But if your injury was caused through no fault of your own, you should not be the one responsible for bearing the cost.

After discussing your situation with a knowledgeable Seattle personal injury lawyer, you may be able to pursue a personal injury claim and hold the appropriate party accountable. The exact value of compensation that you can recover will depend on the severity of your injuries and the impact the accident had on your life from a physical, emotional, and financial perspective.

You May Be Entitled To:

  • Lost Wages or Decreased Earning Capacity
  • Past, Present, and Future Medical Expenses
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Emotional Trauma and Anguish
  • Permanent Disability or Disfigurement
  • Property Damage

A Personal Injury Firm Evens the Odds

Those at fault for your injuries and large, powerful insurance companies will try to pay as little as possible for the harm you suffered. They count on you forgoing legal representation and (at least) partly blaming you for your injuries. But generally, people represented by counsel obtain larger settlements that more accurately reflect their damages and losses.

That’s where Emerald City Law Group comes in. Our Seattle personal injury lawyers will investigate every aspect of your accident, collect the evidence, find those liable, and fight to secure everything you deserve.

Personal Injury Attorney FAQs

What is Negligence?

Negligence is an essential aspect of most personal injury cases. Negligence refers to the failure of a person or entity to act with the care and concern that another reasonable person or entity would in the same circumstances. If you can prove that a person or entity’s actions were negligent and caused your losses, you may be able to obtain compensation for the harm they caused.

How Do I Know If I Have a Personal Injury Claim?

You may have a personal injury case if you have suffered harm due to someone’s negligence, recklessness, or intentional actions. In Washington, you must prove the following:

  • Duty of Care – The other party had a duty to act reasonably toward you.
  • Breach of Duty of Care – The other party breached their duty.
  • Cause – The other party’s negligent, reckless, or intentional acts caused your injury.
  • Damages – Your injury led to damages such as medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Do Personal Injury Claims Have Time Limits?

In Washington, the statute of limitations in personal injury cases is three years. This means you generally only have three years to file a claim for your accident. If you file after three years, you could be barred from recovering any compensation.

Should I Speak to the Insurance Company Without a Lawyer?

No! Always consult a personal injury attorney before discussing your case with insurance agents. Insurance adjusters are not on your side. They might try to minimize your compensation or deny your claim.

Will My Personal Injury Case Go to Trial?

Most personal injury cases settle before trial. However, some cases are tried before a judge or jury because they involve questions of liability or an insurance company will not settle them fairly.

How Long Will It Take to Settle My Case?

How long it takes to settle your personal injury case will depend on the circumstances. Claims can take anywhere from months to years to settle. Emerald City Law Group works hard to negotiate and obtain the most compensation possible in every case.

Investigating, interviewing witnesses, and presenting information to insurance companies who often make low-ball offers before presenting a reasonable amount can take time. If we cannot settle your case for a fair amount, we will be ready to take your case to court.

Should I Wait to Get Medical Treatment?

You should seek medical care immediately if you’ve been hurt in an accident. You could put your health in jeopardy if you wait.. In addition, if you see a doctor as soon as possible, you can better document your injury and reduce the risk of an insurance company arguing that your injury was unrelated to the accident.

Should I Accept the Insurance Company’s Offer?

Insurance companies are profit-driven businesses. An insurance company will likely contact you quickly after an accident to convince you to accept a settlement. But these are often low-ball amounts, designed to make more valuable cases go away. You should avoid answering any of their questions and immediately contact a Seattle personal injury attorney.

If a Family Member Died, Can I Sue the Person or Entity Responsible?

If you have lost a family member due to someone else’s negligent, reckless, or intentional acts, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim. Although no amount of money can bring back your loved one, a wrongful death claim can compensate you for funeral expenses and help replace lost wages so your family can grieve without worrying about finances.

What if I was Partially At Fault in the Accident?

Under Washington law, you can still file a personal injury lawsuit if you were partially responsible for the accident and your injuries. However, the possible compensation would be reduced by the percentage of fault attributed to you.

How Much Does a Personal Injury Attorney Cost?

We typically work on a contingency fee basis, meaning you pay nothing unless we recover the compensation in your case. During the initial consultation, we’ll clarify our fees so there are no surprises.
