BREMERTON CAR ACCIDENT ATTORNEY

Bremerton is the largest city in Kitsap County, Washington, with an estimated population of about 41,500. Best known as being the home of the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and the Bremerton Annex of Naval Base Kitsap, the city is also connected by ferry to Seattle and offers ample opportunity for employment and entertainment in the larger city. While the ferry is a quick option, for those in motor vehicles, taking Wheaton Way, Warren Ave, or WA-304W is often preferable. Of course, however, driving through Bremerton means the risk of a car accident.

At the office of the Khan Law Firm PLLC, our Bremerton car accident attorneys are here to support our clients who have been involved in a car accident and have questions about the claims process, and are seeking a settlement. Call us today for your free consultation.

Common Causes of Car Accidents in Bremerton

Most car accidents that occur in our state would never happen but for the negligence of one of the parties involved. Most commonly, causes of car accidents include:

  • Speeding;
  • Distracted driving;
  • Drunk or impaired driving;
  • Fatigued driving;
  • Performing illegal maneuvers;
  • Performing illegal lane changes;
  • Tailgating; and
  • Driving aggressively.

In some cases, a car accident may be caused by the fault of someone other than one of the drivers involved. For example, a vehicle defect–such as defective brakes or defective tire tread–could increase the risk of a crash. Or, a crash could be caused because of missing or incorrect signage or hazardous road conditions. When you call our Bremerton car accident lawyers at the Khan Law Firm PLLC, we’ll open an investigation into your crash to determine precisely what happened, who’s to blame, and who should be held legally responsible (liable) for your damages.

The Car Accident Settlement Process

In a Washington car accident, the party who caused the accident is responsible for paying for the damages that result, typically through their liability insurance policy. However, it’s not always this simple. 

After a driver files a claim, the insurance company maintains the right to open its own investigation into the accident. Because the primary objective of an insurance company is to save money, the insurance company may try to argue that the claimant was at fault and therefore should not be compensated in full, or that their injuries aren’t as severe as they claim, or that their injuries aren’t related to the accident at all. The insurance company may, based on these claims, offer a claimant a low-balled settlement offer.

A claimant has no obligation to accept the first settlement offer; instead, they can (and usually should) reject the offer and enter into negotiations. Our lawyers can provide representation throughout the negotiations process and advocate for your right to your full compensation award.

If a fair settlement is reached, then the process will end there. If a settlement agreement cannot be reached between the parties, the claimant has the right to bring forth a lawsuit for damages against the at-fault party. A lawsuit must be filed within the statute of limitations, which is three years.
