Edmonds Car
Accident Attorney

A car accident is often just the start of your troubles. First you need to seek medical treatment–which leads to thousands of dollars in bills that your insurance does not cover. Then you need to worry about the cost of repairing or replacing your damaged vehicle. Finally there are the unknown long-term consequences of your accident. What if you suffered a serious brain injury? Or what if you continue to experience chronic pain even months after the collision?

At the Khan Law Firm, PLLC, our qualified Edmonds car accident attorneys can help you identify and pursue legal restitution from the person or persons whose negligence put you in this position in the first place. Under Washington law, you are entitled to recover a wide range of compensation from a negligent driver in an auto accident. This includes not only your medical bills but also lost income and even damages to account for your pain and suffering.

What You Need to Do–and Not Do–Following a Car Accident

The hours and days following a car accident often find you in your most vulnerable state. You may not even be thinking about how to pursue a claim for compensation. But it is crucial that you take certain basic steps to preserve your legal rights. Here are just a few tips:

  • Never apologize to the other driver. Even if you think you did something wrong, it is best to say nothing to the other driver with respect to what caused the accident. In many cases, you will not be in a position to even determine fault until an investigation has been completed.
  • Get a police report. It is always best to call the police when there has been any type of car accident. Even if nobody is seriously injured, a police officer can take statements from anyone at the scene and prepare an official accident report. This often provides valuable evidence when dealing with an insurance company or filing a personal injury lawsuit.
  • Never feel pressured to accept an initial settlement offer. Insurance companies are quick to offer a settlement, especially when they know their driver caused an accident, but keep in mind the insurer is not looking out for your best interests. Rather, the insurer wants to settle for as little money as possible. This is why you should never agree to any settlement until you have first spoken to an experienced personal injury lawyer.
