Did the Negligence of Others Cause You Harm In a Bellingham Accident?

The concepts of common courtesy and love for your neighbor look good on paper and sound great when spoken, but that does not mean they are actually followed in practice. As the best personal injury attorneys in Washington, we understand that accidents are simply a part of life, and unfortunately, most people are not so neighborly when it comes time to accept liability. That is why Bellingham accident victims should contact Van Law Firm right away, so that you can feel secure knowing that trusted professionals are in your corner every step of the way. Call (360) 200-0000 in your time of need.  One of the main reasons for our continued success is our ability to stay up-to-date on the latest trends and cases such as the ongoing emergence of new mass torts. However, that being said, we also have a rock-solid foundation of specialties for which we are always looking for new cases, including:  
  • Auto accidents 
  • Slip and falls  
  • Trucking accidents 
  • Uninsured and underinsured motorist claims 
  • Wrongful death cases
  • Nursing home abuse
  • Motorcycle accidents 
  • Premises liability claims 
  • Bad faith insurance claims 
  • Workers’ compensation
  • Product liability claims 
At Van Law Firm, we follow a simple code of ethics: accidents affect everyone, and so we help everyone. All clients will feel safe and supported when they bring us their case, no matter their age, race, gender, religion, or sexuality. Client service is the cornerstone of our operations, and with a verified 5-star rating across Avvo, Google, and Yelp, that service has not gone unrecognized.

What Kinds of Compensation are Available to Bellingham Residents?

The goal of every personal injury claim is to recover the compensation necessary to cover your damages. Don’t be fooled–as easy as it sounds, this is a difficult and costly task, and an experienced attorney is needed to ensure favorable outcomes. They will help recover the damages you so desperately need, and they will also argue for additional compensation that you may not have thought of on your own. 

As a whole, plaintiffs’ damages are divided into two categories, punitive and compensatory. For the most part, claimants can disregard punitive damages, as they are assigned by the court for exceptionally bad behavior–less than 10 percent of cases even discuss them. Compensatory damages, on the other hand, are debated in every case as they represent all the standard physical and psychological damages, such as: 

  • Medical costs
  • Property damage
  • Lost wages, damage to future earnings
  • Disability 
  • Loss of enjoyment 
  • Pain and suffering 
  • Loss of companionship

Generally speaking, economic damages are easier to recover than non-economic damages. That’s because they can be easily tallied through receipts and bills, whereas non-economic damages are subjective in nature, and require much more evidence and persuasion. Even the best attorneys can never fully guarantee that non-economic damages will be recovered, and you should always be wary of one that does.

Let us evaluate your situation and determine the best path to take to help you achieve your goals. Give our injury attorneys a call today at (360) 200-0000.

Before Filing a Claim, Speak With an Attorney About Comparative Fault

Retaining a quality attorney is important, but being fully transparent and honest with them is just as vital. They use the information that you give them to argue on your behalf, so it’s best to stock their arsenal as best you can. Lying or withholding information from your attorney will only hurt your case, and your compensation in the long run. So, answer their questions to the best of your ability, especially with regards to your own level of fault. 

Don’t be offended if your attorney asks you about potential fault–they are just trying to prepare you for a set of laws known in Washington as comparative fault. In simplest terms, comparative fault makes it so that every party involved in a suit may be assigned blame on a percentage scale out of 100. This has a direct effect on your settlement, as any percentage of blame you take on will be deducted from your damages. So, if Client X is awarded $100,000 but the court determines that he was 30 percent at fault, his settlement would then be $70,000, a reduction of 30 percent. The party with the highest percentage of fault is barred from receiving anything.
