Bellingham Personal
Injury Attorney

In Washington, those who are injured in accidents caused primarily by someone else’s carelessness or illegal conduct can seek monetary compensation from the at-fault parties. However, this compensation will usually only be awarded if a plaintiff properly files a claim and provides the necessary evidence of fault. This can be a tricky endeavor, especially if the other party, or his or her insurer is proving particularly difficult to work with, so if you were hurt in an accident in Bellingham, you may want to speak with an experienced Bellingham personal injury attorney who can help give your claim the best possible chance of success.

Elements of a Negligence Claim

Most personal injury cases are based on the premise that people are required to use a certain degree of care in their day-to-day dealings with others. Drivers, for instance, must follow all traffic laws and use reasonable care to operate their vehicles safely, so as to limit their chances of causing an accident. Business owners, on the other hand, who invite visitors onto their premises are required to take certain steps to ensure that that property is safe, such as keeping the area clean and warning of hidden dangers. 

Individuals, companies, and even government agencies that fail to fulfill these responsibilities can be held liable for the monetary losses and physical injuries stemming from their actions. Fortunately, even if a person contributed to an accident in some way, he or she can still recover for some of their accident-related losses. 

Gathering Evidence

Even if a person files a personal injury claim against the person or entity who caused his or her injury, that individual will only be able to recover compensation if he or she can provide proof of the defendant’s negligence. This evidence can take a number of different forms, including:

  • Video recordings of the accident;
  • Photographs from the scene of the accident;
  • Police reports;
  • Medical records, including bills and treatment records;
  • Eyewitness statements;
  • Expert testimony; and
  • Prior incident reports.

This type of evidence can prove instrumental in personal injury cases when attempting to prove fault. If, for instance, a driver ran a red light and collided with another motorist in an intersection, a traffic camera recording could help demonstrate that the first driver broke the law and caused the crash. Medical records and other accident-related receipts can also help prove how much an injured party suffered in monetary losses as a result of the at-fault party’s conduct. Gathering this evidence can be difficult, so if you were hurt in an accident, please call our dedicated Bellingham personal injury legal team for help building a strong case.
