Yakima Personal Injury Attorney
Suffering even a minor injury certainly does not add to the quality of one’s day – no one likes to stub their toe, knock their elbow, or trip when walking. But minor injuries rarely lead to long-term consequences. On the other hand, serious accidents can and do have traumatic impacts on people’s lives. At the Khan Injury Law, our Yakima personal injury attorneys know that when you’ve been involved in a serious accident, you need serious legal representation. Call us today for the support and guidance you can depend on.
Do You Have a Personal Injury Case?
While all injuries can be painful and expensive to treat, not all injuries warrant the filing of a personal injury claim. Unfortunately, if you are responsible for your own injuries, there’s probably no one against whom you can file a suit.
On the other hand, if someone else is responsible for your harm, then you can file a claim against that party for damages. In order to win, you’ll need to prove that the other party owed you a duty of care, breached the duty of care owed to you, and that the breach of the duty of care was the proximate cause of harm.
COMPENSATION AVAILABLE FOR INJURED VICTIMS
- Medical bills;
- The cost of any necessary future long-term care;
- Diminished earning capacity;
- Pain and suffering;
- Loss of life enjoyment; and
- Rehabilitation expenses;
- Lost wages;
- Long-term disability;
- Mental anguish or emotional distress;
- Wrongful death.

Shared Fault in a Personal Injury Case
In a personal injury claim, you can hold the party who’s responsible for your injuries and damages liable for the full value of your harm; however, if you contributed to your injuries in any way, this can impact how much you can recover. As found in the Revised Code of Washington Chapter 4.22, any contributory fault on the part of the plaintiff diminished the compensation amount awarded in proportion to the degree of fault. For example, if you are found to be 15 percent responsible for a car accident because you were distracted at the time it happened, then you can only hold the other driver liable for 85 percent of your total losses.
