Personal Injury Lawyers Helping Clients Recover from Serious Accidents in Seattle, Washington State
Suppose you are the injured victim of an accident resulting from someone else’s negligent or criminal actions. In that case, you should not be responsible for expensive legal fees and unmanageable medical bills. Unfortunately, in far too many situations, the injured party finds that their insurance company has failed to provide the compensation necessary to pay for their personal injuries and any other damages. In worse situations, the negligent parties responsible for causing the personal injury accidents may seize the opportunity to take to the offensive and try to hold the victims accountable for the cause of the accidents.
Asking personal injury victims to pay for the medical expenses which they’ve incurred through no fault of their own is unfair. And asking the injured victim to pay compensatory damages to the individuals responsible for the accident is downright unthinkable.
If you have been in a car accident or another type of serious accident, do not face the challenges of battling insurance companies and antagonistic opposing counsels on your own. You have been injured. You deserve a chance to heal and recover. Put your care into the knowledgeable hands of a dedicated personal injury lawyer, such as the attorneys of the Khan Injury Law firm in Washington State.
As your personal injury attorneys, we will work on your behalf to ensure that you receive a fair settlement for any damages and catastrophic injuries. While you receive the necessary medical care for your injuries, we will negotiate with insurance companies to ensure that your medical treatment costs are taken care of. And, if necessary, we will attempt to recover compensation from the at-fault party who was responsible for your pain.
Our law firm has years of experience working in personal injury law throughout the state of Washington, with offices located in Seattle, Kent, Tacoma, and Tukwila. If you have a personal injury claim, contact our law firm for a free case evaluation with a personal injury lawyer. We will attempt to set you on the path toward justice and fair compensation.
Our law firm operates on a contingency fee basis, which means that you never have to pay us a dime in legal fees if we are unable to successfully recover money for your claim. We will do everything within our power to reach a settlement before trial, but if your case makes it to the courts, we will provide you with passionate and committed legal care in a court of law.
You may contact our Seattle law office at 206-203-3978 to schedule your initial consultation.
Is it Possible to Pursue Compensation Under Washington State Personal Injury Law?
If you’ve been injured in an accident, the first things you should do are seeking medical attention, check for other victims, and speak with the authorities. Then, without much further delay, contact a personal injury attorney to discuss your case. In Washington State, the statute of limitations for a personal injury claim is three years, meaning that if you do not file your lawsuit within three years of the accident, you may be permanently barred from seeking legal action related to the accident. Please note that if you hope to hold a government employee, agency, or entity responsible for your catastrophic injuries, the statute of limitations is much shorter, at a mere 60 days.
These three years can and will pass quickly, especially if you have lasting injuries and costly medical bills. And at any time within those three years, the at-fault party may decide to bring legal action against you. Do not delay unnecessarily. Talk to a personal injury lawyer right away.
Washington State operates under ‘comparative fault’ rules for accidents and personal injury cases. Under this rule, it may be determined that the injured party was partially responsible for the accident. What this means is that if the judge decides that the facts show you were 30% at fault for the accident, then your settlement will be cut by approximately 30%. Thankfully, there are no caps for your settlement, meaning that there is no law limiting how much your settlement may be worth.
With a successful case, complete with evidence from the accident site and testimony from medical professionals to explain your medical records, your personal injury attorneys may be able to recover fair compensation for medical expenses, emotional distress, lost wages, loss of future earnings, repairs to damages, and loss of partnership or consortium.

How Can Financial Compensation Help You on Your Pathway to Recovery?
We all pay for health insurance and car insurance, believing that we are adequately protected if we should ever fall victim to serious injury in an accident. However, this is far too often simply not the case. Your insurance company, and the insurance companies of the negligent parties responsible for your injuries, will fight tooth and nail not to pay more than what they feel is fair to them.
With a successful personal injury claim, your personal injury attorney can help to make sure that your insurance company isn’t cheating you and paying you less than you deserve. And if the insurance companies are not enough, we will seek compensation and potentially punitive damages from any at-fault party responsible for your injuries.
With this financial compensation in hand, you will be able to get the medical treatment that you require without concern about the costs. And if your injuries result in you being unable to work, your settlement can help cover any past or future lost wages. If damages were incurred to your vehicle or property, recovered compensation can assist with paying for any necessary repairs or replacements.
Emotional distress cannot be as easily seen as a broken bone, burnt face, or lacerated skin. But we all know that mental health issues can be just as damaging to a person as any physical wounds. Accidents often result in leaving the victims in a state of mental duress, sometimes creating or exacerbating depression, anxiety, memory issues, speech issues, eating disorders, insomnia, emotional numbness, anger and aggression, migraine headaches, and suicidal ideation.
Like other injuries, it can be difficult to attach a price tag to your emotional distress. However, these mental health conditions, like any physical injury, can cause a lasting loss of quality of life. As your legal representatives, we will pursue compensation on your behalf in hopes of helping you live more comfortably with your newfound mental health conditions.
Please contact our law firm without further delay to learn more about the benefits of recovering the maximum compensation for your injury claim. You can schedule a free consultation with our legal staff to discuss your case and learn how best to proceed. You may call our Seattle office by phone at: 206-203-3978.

If you’ve been in a car accident and only suffered minor injuries, you may feel compelled to let it slide. It was only an accident, after all. You might even tell the other driver that you’re not badly hurt in an attempt to keep things civil. And while this may seem like the easiest way to go about things, it is not the smartest move. If you delay seeking medical care or if you assure others that you are just fine, an insurance company may deny you the financial compensation that you deserve. What’s worse, the negligent driver may file a personal injury lawsuit against you, claiming you are responsible for their physical injuries. It is smart to protect yourself, even if the damage and your personal injuries appear minor.
