When to File a Personal Injury Claim in Seattle

Washington State law allows any individual who has been injured, physically or financially, due to negligence or wrongful conduct to file a civil claim against the liable person or party. In some cases, injured parties can bring claims based on strict liability and/or default, meaning they do not need to prove that another person, party, or entity acted negligently. However, in most cases, the person bringing the claim (known as the “plaintiff”) must prove that the other party acted negligently or wrongfully and is, therefore, liable.

For cases brought on the grounds of negligence, plaintiffs must typically prove each of the following elements:

  • Injury: First, to have a case, the plaintiff must prove that they suffered an injury. Additionally, they must prove that this injury resulted in measurable economic and/or non-economic losses, known as “damages.”
  • Duty of Care: The plaintiff must also establish the duty of care. This is the legal duty the defendant has to act reasonably and/or take certain measures to prevent causing “foreseeable” injury or harm to others.
  • Breach of the Duty of Care: To have a personal injury case, you will also need to prove that the defendant breached the duty of care. This is typically proven by demonstrating the defendant’s negligence or wrongful conduct.
  • Causation: Lastly, you must prove that the defendant’s negligent or wrongful conduct was the direct or proximate cause of your injuries and damages. This often involves proving that, had the defendant upheld the duty of care, the injury would not have occurred.

If you or someone you love has been injured due to the careless, reckless, or wrongful conduct of another person, a company, a manufacturer, or some other entity, contact a Seattle personal injury attorney immediately.

Washington Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Lawsuits

The state of Washington has a three-year statute of limitations on most personal injury cases. This means you have just three years to file a lawsuit; if you wait too long, you will almost certainly lose your right to sue the liable party for damages.

What Types of Damages Are Available in Personal Injury Cases?

Serious injuries frequently require extensive and costly medical treatment, as well as ongoing rehabilitation and lifelong care. Victims who sustain permanent impairments or disabilities will also likely suffer thousands of dollars in lost income, not to mention considerable physical pain and emotional suffering. By filing a personal injury claim, victims of serious injuries and their families can recover fair financial compensation from those responsible for their damages.

While every case is unique, many personal injury claims result in plaintiffs recovering compensation for the following:

  • Emergency medical attention
  • Hospital/ambulance fees
  • Surgery and other treatments
  • Prescription medications
  • Costs associated with home modifications
  • Physical therapy
  • Rehabilitation
  • Ongoing and future medical care
  • Lost income, wages, and benefits
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress and trauma
  • Medical equipment, such as wheelchairs or prostheticCosts associated with home modifications
  • Professional in-home assistance and care
