How Our Ferndale Car Accident Lawyers Will Help You

When you’ve been in a crash and have suffered losses in the form of injuries, medical bills, lost wages, property damage costs, and pain, suffering, and emotional distress, you deserve to be compensated in full. When you hire a skilled Ferndale car accident attorney with experience working on cases like yours, you improve your chances of recovering a settlement that fully compensates you. Our lawyers will support you by:

  • Providing a free case consultation. Our lawyers always offer free case consultations. This is an opportunity for us to review the details of your accident and make a recommendation about how to proceed, as well as an opportunity for you to get to know us and ask questions. 
  • Investigating your case. One of the first things that we do is open an investigation. Our investigation will seek to determine what happened, who’s to blame, and what the proximate cause of the crash and related injuries was. We can bring in experts during this process to build your case.
  • Calculating your damages. We’ll work with our team, as well as outside experts and professionals, to calculate the value of your claim. We want to make sure that you’re compensated for the full value of your economic and noneconomic losses. 
  • Filing your case and representing you before an insurance adjuster. Once we know who should be held liable for your damages and how much your case is worth, we will file the claim on your behalf, issue a demand letter, and represent you in any and all conversations with the insurance adjuster. 
  • Negotiating your settlement. When you receive a settlement offer, it’s important that it’s reviewed by an attorney to ensure that it’s fair. If a settlement offer isn’t fair, our lawyers will negotiate on your behalf. 

Litigating your case. While most cases end during negotiations without the need to go to court, sometimes, a fair settlement cannot be reached. If this is the case, we can discuss the possibility of filing a lawsuit and litigating your case in court. Our lawyers have trial experience.

How Do I Seek Financial Compensation After a Car Accident in Ferndale, 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 Ferndale can help.
