Learn More About PersonalInjury Laws in Washington State

You may be surprised to learn that you have a limited period of time to file a personal injury lawsuit in the state of Washington. This limited-time period is called a “statute of limitations.” If you do not file your personal injury suit within the limitation period, you will be unable to pursue damages against the responsible party.

The statute of limitations in Washington State is three years. If you’ve suffered an injury from an accident that is someone else’s fault, you must file within three years of the date of the accident. It’s important to note that you only need to file your suit–your case does not need to move through the court system and receive a judgment within the three year period.

As soon as you are out of danger and have received care for your injury, you should contact a local personal injury lawyer to assist you in evaluating your options.

Marken Law Group does not charge for initial consultation, and we only charge a fee if we receive a settlement that you approve. We also offer reduced fees for military personnel, veterans and senior citizens. There is absolutely no risk in contacting one of our trusted and local Spokane personal injury lawyers, so be sure to call us at 509-879-4626 right away!

When it comes time for a court to hear your case, they will evaluate the suit based on “pure comparative negligence.” Pure comparative negligence examines who is at fault, and in Washington State, you may be assigned part of the blame for your injury. The extent of your own negligence or role in the accident can have an impact in the amount of money you are awarded (if any).

For example, the court might rule that the at-fault party (the plaintiff) is 80% to blame for the injury, and you are 20% at fault. Therefore, you will only receive 80% of the compensation that is awarded (20% will be forfeit to account for your percentage of negligence).

Avoid becoming a victim to insurance companies

While there are many types of accidents that fall under the umbrella of “personal injury,” the most common personal injury suits involve car accidents. If you’ve been injured in a car accident, your insurance company will evaluate the accident and your injuries and attempt to settle out of court. 

Insurance companies are highly motivated to settle quickly, and often become pushy and overbearing in order to get you, the victim, to accept the settlement without fully thinking it through. You may feel bullied by the insurance company to make a quick decision, and doing so can cost you thousands of dollars in the long run. 

Never settle for your insurance company’s offer without first consulting with a personal injury attorney! More often than not, the offer the insurance company extends will be far less than what you deserve. Remember, it doesn’t cost you anything to call Marken Law Group, and you won’t pay any fees unless you accept the outcome we present to you.

Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury

Are personal injury claims taxable?

How can I claim compensation for an injury that was not my fault?

The amount you receive as part of your personal injury settlement depends on the severity of the accident and other costs you have incurred as part of the injury. You may receive compensation for doctor visits and medical bills, property damage, missed wages, pain and suffering, and other factors.

An experienced personal injury attorney knows how to fight for the most compensation possible! Contact Evan Marken, Personal Injury Lawyer at 509-879-4626 for a free case evaluation. We can fight for your personal injury settlement!

How long will it take to receive my personal injury settlement and compensation?

Unfortunately there is no way to know for sure how long it will take for you to receive compensation for a personal injury. Each case is different and the time it takes to move your case through court can vary greatly. In general, cases that involve minor injuries can be settled fairly quickly. Cases where injuries are severe, or there are complex factors to the case, can take longer in court.
