WE SPEAK MULTIPLE LANGUAGES
Carbonado is a terrific town in Pierce County, with beautiful scenery and friendly people. However, like any town in Washington state, Carbonado sees plenty of car accidents. There are many causes for these accidents, but often a negligent or reckless driver is to blame.
At Khan Law Firm, we represent injured victims in Carbonado car accidents. It does not matter whether you live in town or were struck only while passing through. Please reach out to us today so that we can review your case.
Our primary goal in a settlement is to get as much compensation as possible to help our clients defray the financial costs of a car accident. Car accidents are expensive, and few people have the resources to pay all their bills on their own. To this end, we seek compensation for:
Under Washington law, many of our clients can also seek compensation for pain and suffering, as well as other intangible losses. These are harder to calculate in monetary terms. After all, if you suffered a broken leg, just how much money will compensate you for the pain and depression you feel? Nevertheless, the pain, inconvenience, and emotional distress caused by serious injuries deserve some sort of compensation, and we can fight for the maximum under the law.
Washington operates under a comparative fault system that recognizes that some accident victims were also negligent and that their negligence could have contributed to the accident. In some states, any fault on the part of our client would prohibit outright a claim for compensation. In other states, a client can only be 49% or 50% to blame. If they are even a little bit more to blame, they lose the ability to sue.
This is not the law in Washington. Our clients can bring a claim for compensation so long as someone else was at least 1% to blame for the accident. However, RCW 4.22.005 states that our client’s claim will be reduced “proportionately” by their percentage of fault. So someone who has suffered $50,000 in losses but was 60% to blame can only receive 40% of the amount, or $20,000 maximum.
As experienced Carbonado car accident lawyers, we work with our clients to fully understand how an accident unfolded. We can also work to minimize their contributory fault, which will increase the amount of money they receive. For this reason, we recommend that accident victims not give statements to an insurance company. The adjuster is fishing for information to use against you, so the less said the better.
Car accidents are confusing. Many of our clients are suffering from serious injuries, such as broken bones, brain injuries, burns, or back injuries. They might be immobilized and in incredible pain.
A lawyer is not only a terrific asset but a necessity. When we take on a case, we handle all communications with the insurance companies, saving you time and peace of mind. We can also investigate to find evidence that the other driver was at fault for the collision.
Sometimes, it is not obvious why a crash occurred. For example, a defect on the road could have contributed to your wreck, or a defective car part could be to blame. We can bring a claim with the necessary entities in these situations.
We also have experience negotiating with large insurers in our state. We are never afraid to go into court and file a lawsuit if negotiations falter.
In the dizzying moments following a car accident, you might not know where to turn. We can help. The experienced team at Khan Law firm has represented many accident victims in negotiations with insurance companies and in lawsuits. We can guide you through the entire process, allowing you to heal.
