What Is a Personal Injury?
In civil law, a personal injury is any type of injury that is caused by another party. If any person or business entity acts in a negligent or careless manner that leads to bodily harm for you or a loved one, you may have a personal injury case. We handle cases such as:
We Specialize in Auto Injuries
Though we handle many practice areas, our personal injury attorneys have extensive experience with traffic-related accidents, including:
- Car accidents
- Commercial truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle accidents
In vehicle collision cases, our Tacoma lawyers can help clients pursue a diminished value claim. They can also provide valuable counsel if your accident involves an uninsured motorist or a driver under the influence. If your insurance company is violating contract laws and treating you unfairly, you may have a bad faith insurance claim, and we can fight for your rights.
Compensation Can Cover Many Types of Losses
The damages in personal injury litigation are typically the losses you experience because of an accident or incident of wrongdoing. These can include:
- Medical care costs
- Loss of income
- Property loss and damage
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- Quality-of-life losses, such as loss of enjoyment or loss of consortium with a spouse
We Handle Wrongful Death Cases
If your loved one has succumbed to injuries sustained in an accident that wasn't their fault, you have our deepest condolences. We know no amount of compensation can bring them back, but we can put you in a position to safeguard your family's well-being and future by helping you secure financial compensation for your loss.
Understanding Laws Specific to Washington
The Statute of Limitations
In the State of Washington, the statute of limitations for wrongful death and personal injury claims is three years. If your claim is not filed within three years of the victim's death or injury, the courts will most likely refuse to hear it. It takes approximately three to six months to settle most cases, so don't wait to reach out to our Tacoma attorneys. Starting now puts you in a much stronger position.
Although Washington does not allow punitive damages for civil cases, our state’s comparative fault rules treat accident victims fairly. If you were partially to blame for an accident, you may still receive compensation. Cochran Douglas will conduct a comprehensive investigation to help you prove your case. If another party is liable for your injuries, we will work to obtain and clarify the evidence.
