Monroe Car

If you have been involved in a crash, our experienced attorneys can help you to file a claim and recover the compensation award you’re deserved. Call us today to get started.

Getting the Facts About Monroe Car Accidents

Damages in a Monroe Accident

Injuries, financial losses, and emotional and psychological harm are all possible in a serious crash. In addition to the risk of injuries such as traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, internal injuries, bone fracture injuries, etc., a person may be injured to the extent that they are unable to work and earn an income. Psychological injuries, such as depression and post-traumatic stress disorder, are common. Our lawyers want to make sure you are compensated for the full extent of your losses. 

Liability in a Car Accident

After a car accident, one of the most important pieces of recovering the compensation award that you deserve is being able to prove liability, or legal responsibility, for the crash. Liability for a car accident in Monroe is based on fault. Sometimes, fault is shared by more than one party, including the victim. When this is the case, the victim’s recoverable compensation award can be reduced in proportion to their degree of fault. Usually, liability is on the shoulders of one of, or a combination of, the following parties–

  • The other driver. Things like drinking while driving, swerving, driving while fatigued, speeding, and driving while distracted can all lead to a crash. If another driver causes a crash, they are responsible for paying for the damages that result. 
  • Party responsible for road/signage/light maintenance. Sometimes, crashes are caused by dangerous conditions, such as defective traffic lights, potholes or other unsafe road conditions, debris in the road, etc. When this is the case, the party responsible for road maintenance could be held liable. Often, this is a municipality. 
  • Car manufacturer/distributor. Defective vehicles and vehicle parts can cause crashes, or can exacerbate injuries in crashes (for example, consider defective airbags). A product liability claim could be brought against the vehicle or vehicle part manufacturer or distributor.

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