People are expected to use a certain degree of care in their day-to-day interactions with others. Drivers, for instance, must comply with traffic laws, while property owners must take certain steps to ensure that their property is safe for visitors. Similarly, people with animals are typically required by city ordinance to keep their animals leashed and manufacturers must be sure to properly inspect, assemble, and package their products. Individuals or entities who fail to fulfill these responsibilities put others at risk and so can be held liable if their actions result in an injury.
While negligence-based claims do fall under the category of personal injury, how a case should be handled varies depending on the type of accident and injury in question, so if you were hurt through the negligence of another person, company, or government agency, don’t hesitate to reach out to our Redmond personal injury legal team to learn more about your options.

WE ARE HERE TO HELP
Those who are injured as a result of someone else’s negligence often qualify for damages, which are awarded either directly by the at-fault party or his or her insurer after engaging in settlement negotiations, or by a judge or jury after the filing of a personal injury claim. Which of these routes a person takes after an accident depends on a few different factors, including the severity of the injuries and who was responsible for the accident. If, for instance, fault is a relatively complex issue, an insurer may be less willing to negotiate, leaving a plaintiff to take his or her chances with a jury.
When fault is clear, however, or the injuries sustained by one party are particularly severe, insurers are often willing to enter into negotiations with the victim. While a settlement award may not be as much as a person could collect in court, this option also allows injured parties to avoid the stresses and expenses of going to court.
