What to Know About Car Accident Laws in Washington
Were you hurt in a traffic collision in Battle Ground? If so, it is imperative that you understand how liability is determined. Here are three important things to know about Washington’s car accident laws:
Liability is Based on Fault
Washington is a fault-based auto accident state. Financial responsibility for a crash is apportioned based on who caused the accident.
A Strict Statute of Limitations
Under Wash. Rev. Code § 4.16.080, there is a strict three-year statute of limitations for auto accident injury claims. If you do not file a claim before the deadline runs out, you will lose your right to do so.
More than one party may share liability for the same crash. Under Wash. Rev. Code § 4.22.005 (Washington’s comparative negligence law), each party to a car wreck is liable for their share of the fault.
How Much Compensation Can I Recover After a Car Crash?
The amount you can recover in a car accident will depend on several factors, including the total extent of your damages and your ability to prove liability. Our Washington personal injury lawyers are fierce advocates for your clients. We will fight to maximize your settlement or verdict. Along with other types of losses, you can seek financial compensation for:
- Motor vehicle repairs or replacement;
