Everything—from an increasing population to the current economic environment—contributes to a rise in personal injury cases in Washington and throughout the country:
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.
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.
