Did you find this page because you’re looking for a Tacoma personal injury lawyer? If so, we’re glad you’re here. No one expects to need the services of a personal injury lawyer – and we understand that you may have never worked with one before.
You might be wondering:
What you should know right away: it’s always free to schedule a meeting with one of our attorneys. In fact, you only pay us if we’re able to win your case. You risk nothing to seek our advice and learn your legal options.
Personal injury law covers any situation where someone acts negligently and another person is injured as a result. There are lots of types of situations where this can happen. To give you an idea, here are some of the more common scenarios we help clients with:
Any time you’ve been hurt and you believe someone else is to blame, call us. In the state of Washington, personal injury victims can pursue compensation for their medical bills, pain, and suffering (RCW 4.56.250).
A Tacoma personal injury lawyer can offer guidance and representation when you’ve been harmed by someone else. Relying on a lawyer’s expertise is a good idea especially if you are dealing with very severe injuries. You want to make sure that your rights are protected and that you’re sure your medical costs will be covered.
Initially, the lawyer will work to gather as much information as possible about your case. For instance, this could include doctor’s reports, bills, witness accounts, video footage, and police reports. After that, the lawyer will identify the at-fault party and pursue compensation on your behalf. There is usually a negotiation process that follows. The lawyer will make sure to consult with you anytime there’s an offer on the table and tell you honestly if they feel the offer is fair.
Sometimes, negotiations stall. In this event, we can file a lawsuit and argue your case before a jury or judge.
It’s not uncommon for personal injury cases to get complicated. For instance, there may be more than one at-fault party. Or, the other party claims the accident was your fault. When you work with a personal injury lawyer, you can entrust these complexities in their hands. And then you’re free to focus on your recovery.
There is no quick or easy way to determine the potential settlement amount of your case. Sometimes, you might find claims to the contrary or even spy flashy calculators on other lawyer’s websites. But nothing can replace the personalized legal advice you can get from meeting with an experienced attorney.
Many factors influence the value of your case, such as:
As the facts about your case become known, our lawyers will have a better idea of what a fair settlement value is.
After an accident, there are steps you can take to help increase the value of your case. Conversely, you can hurt your case if you are not careful.
