Personal injury law allows individuals who have sustained injuries as a result of another party’s negligence or intentional act to file a claim against the responsible party for financial compensation. We know that a monetary award cannot fully account for your physical and emotional losses, or for the trauma you suffered as a result of the accident. At the same time, obtaining a favorable settlement or verdict can help immensely when it comes to paying hospital bills and providing for your family when your injuries make it impossible for you to return to work.
Personal injury law in Washington State covers a wide range of accident and injury cases, and the Khan Law Firm routinely assists clients with many different types of lawsuits. As you consider hiring an attorney to file a claim, it is important to keep in mind that Washington State law (RCW 4.16.080) has a three-year statute of limitations for most kinds of personal injury lawsuits. As such, if you want to file a civil lawsuit, you must do so within three years from the date of the accident in which you were injured. However, the sooner you file your claim, the quicker you may be able to receive the compensation you deserve.
Auto collisions can involve many different types of vehicles and individuals. For example, we frequently assist clients who have been injured in the following types of motor vehicle crashes:

Wrongful death claims are also lawsuits that a personal injury lawyer can assist you in filing.

It is important to know that wrongful death lawsuits have a different statute of limitations than other claims.
