Getting the Facts About Bothell West Car Accidents

Auto accidents happen much more often than they should in Snohomish County and throughout the Seattle metropolitan area. Most of these collisions result from another party’s negligence or wrongdoing.

How Do I Seek Financial Compensation After a Car Accident in Bothell West, WA?

Washington is a fault state, or a “tort” state, for auto accident purposes. Accordingly, after a car accident, you can file an auto insurance claim either with your own auto insurer (known as a first-party claim) or through the at-fault driver’s auto insurer (known as a third-party claim). There are benefits and limitations to each approach that you should discuss with your car accident attorney.

When auto insurance payouts are insufficient to cover your losses, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver. While there is no serious injury threshold to meet in Washington State to file a lawsuit against a driver, many car accident lawsuits occur when auto insurance limits prevent an injury victim from obtaining full compensation for significant losses. If you want more information about getting started on a lawsuit, our car accident lawyers in Bothell West can help.

How Can a Bothell West Car Accident Attorney Help Me?

At the very least, after a Bothell West car accident, you may be facing property damage costs; at the very worst, you may be facing disabling injuries that will impact you for life and lead to high economic and noneconomic expenses in the form of medical bills, lost wages, pain, suffering, and a diminished quality of life. When you work with our Bothell West car accident attorneys, we will represent your best interests by:

  • Investigating your case. Our lawyers will travel to the scene of the accident to gather any evidence that may remain there, including physical debris from the accident, photographs of skid marks and traffic signs, and to determine whether any cameras perhaps caught the accident on tape. We will also review police reports, talk to eyewitnesses, and bring in accident reconstruction experts where necessary.
  • Proving fault. In order to recover compensation in a Bothell West car accident claim, you must be able to prove the fault of the responsible party. If you are found to be partially at fault for the crash and your injuries, then your settlement can be reduced in proportion to your degree of fault. We work with experts and other professionals to prove fault by a preponderance of the evidence and hold the responsible party liable for your harm.
  • Calculating damages and negotiating your settlement. Another service that our law firm offers is that of calculating your damages. We will add up the value of your economic and noneconomic losses, considering things like your age, severity of your injury, mental and physical suffering, degree of disability, etc. We will then file a demand letter against the insurance company of the responsible party. When a settlement offer is made, we will review it and enter into settlement negotiations if the settlement does not fairly compensate you. 

Litigating your case. Most claims settle out of court, but sometimes, filing a lawsuit is necessary. If this is the case, you can count on our lawyers. We have trial experience and a track record of success.
