SPANAWAY, WA CAR ACCIDENT LAWYER

Car Accidents can happen almost anywhere in Spanaway. Our clients have been injured while driving down Route 7 or when pulling out of a parking space at the Walmart Supercenter. Regardless of where in Spanaway the accident occurs, our clients need compensation and help with making an insurance claim.

This is where Khan Law Firm comes in. Our seasoned car accident lawyers in Spanaway can help you collect necessary information for your claim and even file a lawsuit, if necessary, to protect your rights to compensation. Please contact us today, because Washington gives injured victims a short window of time to make a claim.

Types of Car Accidents

Our Spanaway clients have been injured in horrific accidents or in relatively low-speed fender benders. Some of the more common accidents we have handled include:

  • Sideswipes. These accidents occur when two vehicles are traveling parallel to each other when they collide. Sideswipes often happen on the freeway, when a vehicle refuses to make way for another to merge.
  • Side-impact collisions. These crashes most often happen at intersections where one vehicle slams into the side of another.
  • Head-on collisions. Two vehicles can strike each other head-on. These are often very deadly collisions and can happen because a tired or intoxicated driver drifts into oncoming traffic.
  • Rear-end collisions. When one vehicle is following too closely to another, it can slam into the back of the lead car because the driver does not brake in time.
  • Multi-car pile-ups. Often occurring on the freeway, a multi-car pileup occurs because drivers cannot swerve or brake to avoid each other after one car gets hit. As a result, cars start pinballing off each other, leading to horrible accidents.

These car accidents have many causes, including drunk and alcohol use, distracted driving, and carelessness. If you have been injured, give Khan Law Firm a call.

Understanding Fault

Legally, it matters who is to blame for the car accident because Washington still operates under traditional fault principles. In a no-fault state like Florida, a motorist can make a claim on their insurance policy regardless of who caused the crash. That’s not how it works in Washington.

Here, a motorist carries liability insurance, which pays out compensation to injured victims when a driver is at fault for the accident. Motorists cannot make a claim on their own liability insurance, and they can only make a claim on another driver’s policy if that driver is at fault.

Accidents happen so quickly that it is normal not to really understand who is to blame. This is where a lawyer can be a big help. We are skilled at reviewing all of the evidence and coming to a strong determination of fault.

Steps to Negotiating a Settlement

Most of our cases settle, which is often ideal for our clients, who gain access to life-saving compensation much faster than if they had to go into court for a trial. Nevertheless, negotiating a fair settlement isn’t easy. Some insurers are fairer than others, but we often must fight for adequate settlements for many of our clients.

A negotiation follows this sequence:

  • At the scene. You should call the police and obtain information from the other driver. Also get pictures of the accident and call the police to write a report.
  • At the hospital. Start receiving medical treatment right away and hold onto your bills and receipts.
  • Hire an attorney. Your lawyer will report the accidents to the relevant insurance companies and begin gathering evidence for your case.
  • Send a demand letter. Your attorney typically kicks off negotiations by making a demand for compensation. The timing depends on many factors. Our firm likes to wait to see that our clients have reached maximum medical improvement so that we really know how much the accident has cost you. In our letter, we offer to settle if the insurer pays a certain amount.
  • Counteroffer and negotiation. Many insurers immediately reject our offer and make a counter. We can negotiate, back and forth, to get a fair amount for our clients.

If negotiations don’t work out, then we can go into court and file a lawsuit. However, Washington’s statute of limitations gives victims only three years from the date of the accident to do so. Please don’t wait to meet with an attorney to discuss your case.
