WE SPEAK MULTIPLE LANGUAGES
Small towns like Wilkeson see serious car accidents that leave members of our community laid up in the hospital or at home. Accidents happen year-round on small roads like Albert Street or on roads with significant traffic like Route 165. It is never a surprise to see some cars pulled over to the side of the road after a wreck.
If you have been injured, please contact Khan Law Firm today. We have built our reputation in Pierce County representing accident victims as they fight for compensation.
When someone else is at fault for an accident, victims should not be asked to suffer the financial consequences. Even relatively minor accidents can cause victims to suffer serious financial losses, such as:
It is hard to analyze how much a victim can receive without meeting in person. Some injuries, like facial scarring, might not cost much to treat but lead to horrible emotional distress. Meet with an attorney for a targeted, individualized review of your own circumstances.
Many car accident victims seriously compromise their claim at the scene of the accident when they either apologize for the crash or make some other statement that can be used against them. Washington recognizes comparative fault, which means that sometimes two people could both contribute to a crash. If so, then a driver’s ability to receive compensation is reduced by their percentage of fault.
Anything you say at the scene could be used later to pin the blame for the accident on you. Instead of engaging in chit-chat, victims should call the police to come out to the crash and then stand by to await their arrival. The less said the better.
After an accident, many victims also make a mistake by giving a recorded statement to the insurance companies. They are not entitled to one. Many insurance adjusters are looking for statements they can use to minimize or deny your claim. Instead of talking, hire an attorney at Khan Law to represent you.
Khan Law has made it easy and affordable to hire us. We realize that many people are concerned about the costs of paying an attorney. However, we represent clients on contingency.
A contingency fee agreement works for everyone involved. Instead of requesting any up-front legal fees, our attorneys agree to accept only a percentage of your settlement or jury award. This means that if we do not win your case, then you don’t owe us any attorney fees. Consequently, we have an incentive only to take cases that have real merit. And we have an incentive to maximize the amount of your settlement since that increases the amount that we also take home.
If you would like to learn more about contingency fee agreements, please contact us today. We would be happy to discuss how our lawyers can assist you in your claim.
Washington’s statute of limitations requires that injured victims bring a lawsuit within 3 years of the accident. Any delay past that point and a victim can lose the ability to sue altogether. This law is found in R.C.W. § 4.16.080. We encourage all victims to make an appointment as soon as possible because three years can pass by very fast.
Khan Law Firm is proud to represent the Wilkeson community in car accident cases. We can also help you if you live out of town but were involved in a wreck on one of our roads. Our lawyers have obtained favorable settlements for countless clients; let us help you as well.
