Be Wary Of Insurance Companies
After an accident, the auto insurance company may contact you. Throughout our more than 25 years of practice, it has become abundantly clear that insurance companies only care about protecting profits. When reviewing a settlement offer, remember that the insurer is a business whose goal is to limit payouts. In the same light, our law firm is a business whose goal is to maximize recovery.
Who Is At Fault And How Does It Affect Recovery?
The issue of legal liability affects the amount you can recover after an accident, so determining fault is an essential step of the claim process. Liability is most obvious when one party is blatantly violating the rules of the road by:
- Running a red light
- Failing to yield at an intersection
- Making an unsafe lane change
- Talking on a phone or texting while driving
- Driving while intoxicated
Frequently, the drivers involved in an auto collision have conflicting memories of what happened. Washington courts are bound to the facts that can be proven in a court of law. If you can’t prove the facts, you can be found liable or at fault, regardless of how you remember the accident happening. If the court finds the other driver to be at fault, you can recover damages for:
- Medical costs for injuries caused by the accident
- Lost wages for any missed work
- Pain and suffering resulting from the collision
- The wrongful death of a loved one
To ensure you receive fair compensation, your case must be properly evaluated. Our lawyers will thoroughly review police reports, witness statements and medical records to determine the real cost the accident had on your life.
