What Is a Personal Injury Claim?
When a person has been injured, they may have a personal injury case if the injury was caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of another party. Negligence is the failure to exercise the same degree of care that a person of ordinary prudence would exhibit in a similar situation. For example, failing to remedy a known hazard on a property, or choosing to drive while impaired, are both examples of negligence.
If you can prove that your accident and injuries would not have occurred but for the at-fault party’s negligence, then you can hold that party liable, or legally responsible, for your damages. Types of damages that are recoverable in a Blaine personal injury claim include:
- Medical expenses;
- Lost wages;
- Property damage expenses;
- Future rehabilitation or treatment costs related to injuries;
- Loss of earning capacity;
- Pain and suffering;
- Emotional distress;
- Diminished quality of life; and
- Any other economic or noneconomic losses.
Filing a personal injury claim may be the only way to recover financial compensation after a serious accident. Filing a personal injury claim can also provide a victim with a sense of closure and justice after they have been severely harmed.

Timeline for Your Blaine, WA Personal Injury Case
You will only have a limited amount of time to file a personal injury lawsuit if you are injured in or around Blaine, Washington. Under Washington law, most personal injury cases have a three-year statute of limitations. What this means is that you must file a lawsuit within three years from the date of the accident or other incident that gave rise to your claim. If you do not file your lawsuit within that three-year time window, you will have what is known as a time-barred claim. Once a claim is barred because the statute of limitations ran out, you will not be able to obtain compensation by filing a civil lawsuit.
To avoid a situation in which you file your claim too late, you should begin working with an Blaine personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. If you get in touch with the Khan Injury Law soon after your injury, we can begin working on your case and can ensure that your claim is filed in a timely manner.
