Personal Injury Attorney FAQ
Do I have a valid personal injury claim?
Personal injury and accident cases can be complex. We can never know whether you have a valid claim until we evaluate your case thoroughly. However, in a general sense, a personal injury negligence claim requires four elements: Duty, Breach, Causation, and Damages.
In law school, we studied an entire year on negligence in a class called Torts. But briefly, the elements of a personal injury claim are defined below and all four elements of negligence must be present to obtain financial compensation for an injury in Olympia.
Duty – A third-party defendant must owe a duty to the injured victim.
Breach – The defendant breached that duty by acting of failing to act reasonably.
Causation – The party defendant was the actual cause of the injury.
Damages – The plaintiff did sustain injuries or damages.
Can I afford a Olympia personal injury lawyer?
Yes, you can! Our policy at the Washington Law Center is to win your case before you pay any fees or costs. Our local attorneys work on a type of fee structure called a Contingency Fee arrangement. That means you pay us nothing unless we win your case.
How much time do I have to file a claim for my injuries?
Washington law limits the time you must file a personal injury claim. An injured victim has generally three years to file a personal injury claim under the law.
We, lawyers, call this law the Statute of Limitations, and it bars a claim filed after the time limit is up. The three-year time limit runs on the date of accident or injury. Other claims, like Wrongful Death or Medical Malpractice, may have shorter time limits.
Like most things in law, there are exceptions to the rules, so it is always important to contact an experienced Olympia, Washington personal injury lawyer soon after an injury.
How much money is my personal injury case worth?
Every accident case in Olympia is different. Monetary compensation depends upon many factors. The type of case, the extinct of your injuries, and the insurance coverage will all play significant roles in the money we can obtain for your injury. It is always best to speak with our lawyers for a better understanding of the possible compensation related to any injury.
What are types of personal injury damages?
Damages for a personal injury make an injured victim “whole,” again to the maximum extent possible through financial compensation. There are various damages in Tort law we lawyers learn in law school, but essentially an injured person’s damages will be economic, like medical bills, or lost wages, and non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering or emotional distress.
The following are common personal injury damages our attorneys recover in Olympia.
- Lost Wages
- Medical Bills
- Employment Loss
- Rehabilitation Costs
- Pain and Suffering
- Psychological or Emotional Distress (PTSD)
- Loss of the Enjoyment of Life
- Temporary or Permanent Disability
- Vision or Hearing Loss
- Loss of Consortium
- Disfigurement or Amputation
- Wrongful Death
