Lost Wages

Injuries sustained in a car accident can require a recovery period that keeps you away from work, causing you to miss out on much-needed income. Your injuries may also permanently keep you from participating in the same line of work. Compensation won in a car accident case can make up for these lost wages and diminished earning capacity, allowing you to live comfortably.

Property Damage

A car accident can result in a damaged or totaled car and damage to other personal items. Our team of car accident lawyers serving Olympia can calculate the monetary value of your losses and secure money to cover them.

Pain and Suffering

While damages for pain and suffering are harder to quantify because they are non-monetary losses, you can still recover compensation for them. These damages measure the impact the injuries have had on the car accident victim’s life and can include physical pain, long-term complications, disfigurement, mental anguish, reduced quality of life, and more.

Washington Is a Comparative Negligence State

In a pure comparative negligence state, the courts will consider both parties’ actions when determining fault in a personal injury case. Even if you were partially at fault for your accident, you can still recover compensation. For example, if another driver hit your car, but you were speeding at the time, the courts may determine that you were 25% at fault for the accident. This means our award will be reduced by 25%. You can receive compensation even if you’re 99% at fault for your accident.

Collecting Evidence

Our team of attorneys can collect police reports, security footage, witness testimonies, and more. We can even acquire cell phone records to see if cell phone use contributed to your accident.

Conferring With Experts

Our attorneys can work alongside experts in the fields of medicine, accident reconstruction, and more to unravel the details of your case and determine the long-lasting impact your injuries will have on your life.

Dealing With Insurance Companies

After an accident, insurance companies will reach out to find any way to minimize or throw out your car accident claim. They will use your words against you and may offer you a settlement that’s much lower than what you deserve. Our attorneys know their tactics. You can refer all communication with them to us.

Going to Court

Whenever possible, our car accident lawyers will try to settle your case out of court, but if the other driver and their insurance company refuse to negotiate, we won't hesitate to take them before a judge and jury. Our goal is to secure a fair settlement that will help you move forward with your life.

Dealing With a Wrongful Death? Our Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help

If your loved one succumbed to the injuries they sustained in a car accident or other motor vehicle accident, their personal representative can file a claim against the other driver who caused the wrongful death. Compensation won in a wrongful death claim can go toward medical bills, lost income, funerary expenses, and more.

Washington gives you three years from the date of your loved one's passing to file a wrongful death claim, so get started by reaching out to our Tacoma law firm today.
