Settling

Washington State follows the concept of comparative negligence when assessing car accident settlements. In comparative negligence, the law recognizes that both parties may bear some responsibility for an accident. In this situation, the degree to which each party contributed to the negligence will be determined, and the settlement will be adjusted accordingly. Washington allows plaintiffs in car accident cases to seek compensation even if they were partially at fault for the accident.

Washington imposes a three-year statute of limitations on car accident claims. This means that a lawsuit must be filed within three years from the date the accident occurred. In cases of Wrongful Death, the time frame commences from the date of the death, not the date of the accident. The statute of limitations does not apply to insurance claims. Insurance claims must be filed according to the terms of the applicable policy. Generally, insurance companies require you to file a claim or notice of claim promptly or within a reasonable time frame.

Any collision causing $1000 or more in property damage or an injury to any person must be reported to Washington State Patrol unless a police officer is present and submits a collision report.

When an uninsured motorist is found to be at fault in a collision, they can be held personally liable. This means paying for damages to the other driver’s vehicle as well as their hospital bills and medical care. An uninsured driver will also be paying out-of-pocket for their own car repairs and injuries. Uninsured Motorist insurance coverage is highly recommended in Washington.

It is possible to lose your license if you are driving without insurance. It is illegal to drive in Washington without insurance coverage. If you are in an accident without insurance and cause more than $1000 in damage or if anyone is injured, the Department of Licensing can suspend your driver’s license.

Auto accidents in Washington may be reported through the Washington State Patrol website.

Washington State Patrol supplies accident reports through requests on their website. For a fee of $10.50, you may purchase an accident report.

It is difficult to estimate how much your claim is worth without first knowing the details of the collision. We can assess the potential monetary recovery when you schedule a free consultation to discuss the facts of your case and your injuries.

Factors in Settling Personal Injury Cases

Vehicle accident cases can turn on a number of factors but often start with a close examination of the circumstances of the collision and the driver’s insurance coverage. Many cases can be resolved through adept negotiations with the insurance carrier and other involved parties.  If a resolution cannot be reached, litigation may be necessary. Our experienced trial lawyers have the resources to hire any necessary medical experts or other professionals to provide the essential evidence for your case. We will vigorously pursue your claim in court and ensure you receive the maximum compensation possible.
