Passionate Personal Injury Attorneys Dedicated to Helping Lakewood Claimants

In the field of personal injury, it’s impossible to have “seen it all,” as new accidents and claim types arise all the time. Luckily for Lakewood accident victims, the team at Van Law Firm has both extensive experience as well as a forward-thinking mindset–for us, the most important cases are the ones that we haven’t vetted yet. We value our role in the communities we’re a part of, and as such, we are dedicated to protecting the rights of injured Washingtonians. Call (360) 200-0000 for more information about personal injury and mass tort claims.  Versatility is a hallmark of our firm’s culture, and so potential clients should never hesitate to bring us their case, no matter the parameters. We can handle and settle all kinds of personal injury and mass tort claims, including but not limited to: 
  • Auto collisions 
  • Product liability claims
  • Motorcycle crashes
  • Uninsured and underinsured motorist claims
  • Premises liability claims
  • Wrongful death cases 
  • Workers’ Compensation
  • Nursing home and elder abuse

After years spent working to improve the lives of thousands of accident victims, we know that an ongoing personal injury case is one of the most stressful and intensive processes one can go through. That being said, we pride ourselves on our professionalism and duty to service. No client will ever be put in a situation where they feel unprotected or unprepared. If there is any point during the suit process where certain accommodations need to be made, we gladly make it happen.

It is Important to Remember Comparative Fault for Washington Cases

While we are a top-tier law firm with extensive experience, the truth of the matter is that all claimants should retain an attorney in general when filing a lawsuit, for numerous reasons. The first is that they are licensed in your jurisdiction and therefore know the specific guidelines that your case must follow, and they will handle the work of proving the defendant’s negligence (which is the crux of any suit). Claimants in Washington state should be familiar with the concept of comparative fault before beginning the lawsuit process. 

The simplest way to imagine comparative fault is to basically get rid of the titles of plaintiff and defendant, as under this provision all parties involved in a given proceeding are eligible to receive a portion of the fault. When most people envision a lawsuit, they imagine a head-to-head debate with a clear-cut “winner” at the end– this is not entirely false, although comparative fault can make it so that all parties may walk away with lighter pocketbooks as any percentage of the blame you are assigned is deducted from your end settlement by an equal amount (10 percent liable = 10 percent deduction).  In the end, the party with the highest percentage of fault is barred from compensation altogether.

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

What Kinds of Compensation are Available to Washington Claimants?

The other main reason to always hire an attorney is that they are the ones who will successfully argue for damages on your behalf. Numerous studies have shown that claimants who try to handle their case themselves routinely recoup less than a third of what they could with professional help, or nothing at all. 

There are two main types of damages, compensatory and punitive. Compensatory damages, as the name suggests, are designed to include all of the various physical and psychological injuries one may accrue as a result of an accident,  including: 

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

In very rare instances, punitive damages may also be awarded. While they are referred to as “damages,” perhaps a better term would be “fees” or “fines” as these are separate from standard compensation, and are designed as a punitive measure for whenever a defendant has acted especially negligently. Less than one tenth of all proceedings will debate punitive damages.
