What you need to know about recovering losses from a personal injury claim
If you or your loved ones have suffered an injury anywhere in Washington, you should seek legal counsel as soon as possible to determine if you are entitled to financial compensation for your harms and losses. Whether you have suffered in a car accident, a bike accident, motorcycle accident, any kind of assault or harassment, or you have been abused sexually, the person who is responsible for the event should be held financially accountable.
It doesn't matter whether the person responsible for your loss acted negligently, intentionally, or recklessly. As long as they are liable for the event that caused you pain and material damages, they are responsible for paying for your losses and expenses. That may include, but is not limited to:
- Medical expenses
- Expenses for medical devices and medications
- Compensation for pain and suffering
- Compensation for permanent or temporary disability
- Property loss
- Lost wages
- Loss of financial support
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Funeral costs, in the case of a wrongful death
This is not an exhaustive list. Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be entitled to some, all of these expenses, or more than this. To determine that, you can call us at (253) 327-1063. Our initial consultations are free of charge. As soon as you tell us about your case, you'll learn what's the maximum financial compensation that you could get for your particular case.

What a Washington Area Personal Injury Lawyer Can Do For You?
An experienced Washington personal injury lawyer can advise you on what to do first after the accident in order to get damages recovery and can help you navigate through the procedures until you get the compensation you deserve.
At first, you can expect advice to refuse any offer made by the insurance company. It is very likely that they'll offer a small inadequate compensation. If you hire us, this is the stage where we'll build a strong case for you. We'll examine the accident thoroughly, talk to witnesses, to expert witnesses, your physician, and gather any other evidence that could serve us. Then we'll engage in negotiations with the insurance company. With all the evidence we'll present to them, they are likely to make a much better offer.
If they do, you'll get your compensation. If they don't, we'll keep negotiating until they offer a decent amount of money for your harms and losses. The insurance company may employ delay tactics at this stage, but if it happens, we'll take them to trial. We won't quit until you are made whole.
