WE SPEAK MULTIPLE LANGUAGES
A traumatic car collision is just around the next bend for many of us. And, despite recent advances in safety technology such as lane departure warning systems and automatic emergency braking, the number of car crashes is continuing to rise at an alarming rate. The cost of a car crash varies on your injuries, but can easily rack up into the six digits if you suffered multiple broken bones, severe whiplash, and a traumatic brain injury–all of which are common for car crash survivors. Victims of car crashes deserve to be fully and considerably compensated for their financial losses. If you were recently involved in a traffic collision, or were injured even more than a year ago, the time to take legal action is now. You have three years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit, as per Washington statute RCW 4.16.080.
If you have been injured in an accident, don’t hesitate to contact us. The Black Diamond, WA car accident lawyers of the Khan Law Firm assist clients who have been injured in all manners of motor vehicle collisions, and are here to provide immediate legal services.
Some of the most common types of car crashes include the following:
However the crash was caused, our team of attorneys works with police, investigators, witnesses, and expert witnesses when necessary to determine the cause of the crash. While the negligent driver may have admitted fault at the scene of the crash to you, they will likely change their tune later on, when they realize that they will be held accountable for your damages, will not receive any financial compensation for their own damages, will face traffic fines and points on their license, and will be confronted with increased insurance premiums.
The most serious injuries are to the face, head, and spine. Unfortunately, many victims suffer injuries to these places, caused by shattering glass, rapid deceleration, and blunt force trauma caused by the interior of the vehicle. Lacerations, according to one recent study group, were the most common injury, though most car crash victims suffer from more than one injury type. Common injuries include:
Traumatic brain injuries;
Lacerations and contusions;
Torn tendons; and
Figuring Out who was at Fault
The Seattle personal injury attorneys of the Khan Law Firm are on your side, and that is a necessary point to make in that you need an experienced legal team behind you, backing you up when the other party attempts to put the blame on your shoulders. Even partial blame can hurt your chances of being fairly compensated. If you are found to be 20 percent at fault, for example, Washington law prohibits you from collecting 100 percent of the damages that you would be entitled to otherwise. Instead, you are limited to 80 percent of the damages, or the inverse percentage of your liability. Proving that you are entirely innocent of blame can be a challenge, but our attorneys are up to it and have helped countless clients receive what is rightfully theirs.
If you are the unfortunate victim of a car collision in or around Black Diamond, you need a lawyer who will aggressively advocate on your behalf and help you achieve maximum financial compensation.
