After an accident, you may be wondering what to do next, or where to turn. We recommend you reach out to a Redmond personal injury lawyer from our team for legal advice. There’s never a charge to speak with one of our lawyers, and all conversations are kept confidential.
A personal injury lawyer can help when you’ve been hurt because someone else was careless. To be clear, not every accident and injury is grounds for legal action. When we meet for an initial case review, here are some of the things we’ll ask about:
Finally, it’s worth noting that the severity of your injuries matter, too. If you end up requiring a lengthy hospital stay, surgery, or extensive physical therapy, chances are, you’ll want to talk to a lawyer. The greater the medical interventions needed, the higher the bills. And the more important it becomes to make sure you secure a fair settlement.
While our team only accepts personal injury cases, there is a wide range of situations this covers. These are referred to as “practice areas” on our website.
Some examples include:
Please see our practice area page for more details.
Sometimes, it’s not entirely the other party’s fault. For example, perhaps the other driver did run a red light, but you weren’t wearing a seat belt and this contributed to the severity of your injuries. What happens in a situation like this?
Here’s what you should know: Washington is a comparative fault state. This allows victims to still recover some compensation for their injuries. A judge or jury will assign a percentage of fault to deduct from your settlement amount. Suppose you’re found to be 30% at fault and your total settlement award is $50,000. From that amount, 30% (or $15,000) will be deducted.
If your injuries are serious, it may still be worth pursuing a personal injury claim to help cover your costs. A personal injury lawyer from our team can help navigate this process with you, as well as try to reduce your at-fault percentage.
The first step is to call a Redmond personal injury lawyer from our team. We can provide a free case review. Plus, you only pay us a fee if we’re able to win you a settlement. Not able to make it to the office? Let us know and we’ll arrange to have one of our attorneys meet at your home or hospital.
