About Washington Personal Injury Law
A Law Firm Where Wrongs Are Made Right
Everything—from an increasing population to the current economic environment—contributes to a rise in personal injury cases in Washington and throughout the country:
- As traffic on the road increases, congestion and other factors contribute to an increase in motor vehicle accidents.
- At the same time, the reduced workforce in the nation contributes to increased cases of many types of injury, caused by everything from medical malpractice to the manufacture of unsafe consumer products.
- More individuals responsible for property maintenance are delaying important repairs and otherwise cutting corners, leading to slip and fall injuries and deck collapse injuries on their premises.
Washington personal injury law is complex and confusing. Even a minimal understanding of the law illustrates the importance of retaining an experienced personal injury attorney if you are injured in an accident caused by someone else's negligence.
Determining Liability under Washington Law
In Washington, each individual whose legal negligence contributed to an accident is held accountable for paying damages to injury victims. When multiple parties are responsible—for example, when a more alert truck driver could have avoided an accident that was actually caused by faulty truck maintenance—each negligent party is proportionally responsible for damages to victims. However, state comparative negligence law can proportionally reduce recovery when negligence of the victim contributed to the accident.
To further complicate these and other issues, insurance companies have powerful legal representation to reduce or deny valid claims, leaving victims to pay out-of-pocket for their injuries. It takes experienced attorneys to fully prove liability under the complex Washington laws.
