An Overview of Auto Accident Liability in Washington

Car accident claims in Snohomish County fall under Washington State law. Here are three key things that you should understand about the motor vehicle accident regulations in Washington:

  • All Serious Crashes Must Be Reported: Washington requires motorists to report an accident to law enforcement if the collision resulted in any injuries or substantial property damages. It is in your best interests to report the crash to the police.
  • A Three-Year Statute of Limitations for Car Accident Injury Claims: Under Wash. Rev. Code § 4.16.080, car accident injury cases are subject to a three-year statute of limitations. You must initiate any claim within three years of the crash. 
  • Washington is a Comparative Negligence State: Car accident liability in Snohomish County is based on fault. The party—driver, truck company, vehicle maker, etc—that caused a crash can be held responsible for the damages. Under Wash. Rev. Code § 4.22.005, there is a comparative negligence standard for liability—meaning parties to a collision are liable for their assigned share of the blame.

You Need Full Financial Compensation After a Car Crash

You may be wondering: How much compensation can I recover after a car accident in Snohomish County? The answer depends entirely on the circumstances of your accident and your injuries. In Washington, car crash victims can hold the at-fault party liable for the complete extent of their damages. However, insurers can make the claims process difficult for everyday people. Our Snohomish County car accident attorney helps clients get every penny of compensation that they are entitled to under the law. You may be able to recover for:

  • Automobile repairs;
  • Ambulance fees;
  • Emergency medical treatment; 
  • Hospital bills and other health care costs;
  • Lost wages and loss of earning power;
  • Pain and suffering & mental distress;
