What Is a Personal Injury Claim?
A personal injury claim is a civil action brought forth by a victim of an accident, known as the plaintiff. By filing a personal injury claim, the plaintiff seeks to hold the at-fault party, known as the defendant, liable for their losses. If the plaintiff can prove that their accident and injuries would not have happened but for the defendant’s negligence, then they can hold the defendant legally responsible for their economic and noneconomic damages.
Negligence is the failure to exercise the same degree of care that a person of ordinary prudence would display in a similar situation. What is negligent varies from situation to situation.

Timeline for Your Bothell, 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 Bothell, 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 Bothell 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.
