You Deserve to Be Compensated
When you’ve been injured and another party is to blame, you should be compensated in full for your losses. Our lawyers can help you if you’ve been in a car accident, a slip and fall accident, a boating accident, a bicycle accident, a pedestrian accident, or any other accident type. If you can prove that the other party breached the duty of care owed to you, and that the breach was the proximate cause of your injuries, you can seek compensation for the full value of your economic and noneconomic losses.
The Personal Injury Claims Process
If you have a personal injury claim, the first part of the process begins with an investigation. During the investigation, our lawyers will contact eyewitnesses, review police reports, and travel to the accident scene. The other part of the personal injury claims process is waiting until you reach Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI), the fullest extent to which you are expected to heal. This is important for calculating the value of your claim.
Once you have determined fault and the value of your case, you will issue a demand letter against the insurance company of the at-fault driver. You will then likely be offered a settlement; this kickstarts the negotiations process. Negotiations can last for months as you and the insurance company work together to reach a fair settlement.
Most claims end here. Sometimes, however, reaching a settlement out of court isn’t possible and a claimant will choose to file a personal injury lawsuit.

Timeline for Your Snoqualmie, WA Personal Injury Case
You will only have a limited amount of time to file a personal injury lawsuit if you are injured in or around Snoqualmie, Washington. Under Washington law, most personal injury cases have a three-year statute of limitations. What this means is that you must file a lawsuit within three years from the date of the accident or other incident that gave rise to your claim. If you do not file your lawsuit within that three-year time window, you will have what is known as a time-barred claim. Once a claim is barred because the statute of limitations ran out, you will not be able to obtain compensation by filing a civil lawsuit.
To avoid a situation in which you file your claim too late, you should begin working with an Snoqualmie personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. If you get in touch with the Khan Injury Law soon after your injury, we can begin working on your case and can ensure that your claim is filed in a timely manner.
