Do I Have a Viable Personal Injury Case in Washington State?
Many accident victims call Van Law, unsure if they have a case. They know they suffered injuries and believe someone else caused them but are unsure what to do next. Our attorneys provide free case assessments and handle these cases on a contingency-fee basis. You pay us nothing to learn your rights and options and let us handle your claim or lawsuit. We only get paid after we close the case and win.
Generally, if another party’s carelessness or recklessness caused your accident or incident and you suffered injuries, you may have a case against them. Our team reviews the facts of what happened and explains our recommendations based on the applicable personal injury law. We can help you pursue compensation for the expenses and losses you incurred, holding the at-fault party legally accountable.

Washington Personal Injury Doctrine
Personal injury incidents fall under the classification of tort law, like most civil cases. This field aims to correct an injustice and relieve a plaintiff from the wrongful behavior of another party. This is what allows our lawyers to pursue and recover compensation for clients.
Shared Fault in a Personal Injury Case
The specific laws governing personal injury cases vary by state, but Washington enforces a contributory fault law. This means that fault is attributed on a percentage scale, so plaintiffs may receive compensation even if they were partially at fault.
As a Van Law client, you do not have to worry about how to calculate this. We are familiar with Washington personal injury law and handle all aspects of our clients’ personal injury lawsuits.
Our legal team includes experienced attorneys who fight to seek and recover fair compensation based on the case facts. That includes minimizing any blame placed on our client and ensuring the at-fault parties are held responsible for their careless and reckless actions.

Deadlines in a Personal Injury Case
Washington State enforces a three-year statute of limitations on personal injury claims. Under RCW 4.16.080, victims generally only have up to three years to sue for compensation following an injury. Our attorneys ensure our clients meet this deadline when we know about the case in time to do so.

Potential Damages to Recoup
As the facts of every case are unique, so too are the damages. The value and type of damages awarded will vary greatly depending on the type of accident, the severity of negligence or malpractice involved, and the extent of the injuries suffered. There are two main types of damages: economic and non-economic. In addition, both current and future damages are available.
Some of the most common damages recoverable in personal injury cases include:
- Medical bills and related expenses
- Lost income
- Diminished earning capacity
- Property damage
- Disfigurement and disability
- Pain and suffering
Punitive Damages in Personal Injury Cases
Punitive damages, which penalize the defendant for bad behavior, are rare in personal injury cases in Washington state. However, they could be possible under some circumstances. These are more likely in defective product cases or mass torts.
How We Seek and Recover Compensation
As legal professionals, Van Law attorneys can navigate the complexities of each case, big or small. We have years of experience negotiating with insurance companies and facing defense counsel, and we do everything possible to ensure a favorable settlement for our clients.
However, if that is simply not possible, clients can rest assured that our trial experience is just as robust– when hiring new attorneys, we specifically look for those with insurance defense experience so that they have an intimate knowledge of how these companies think and work.
At Van Law, we emphasize taking the highest care of each of our clients. We always welcome feedback, and we love to hear from our clients. Here are some testimonials from satisfied Van Law clients:
“These guys are amazing. Helped me throughout the process. Always there when I need help. Initially called a law firm (the one that has lots of ads on the radio), but they declined my case. Van Law Firm accepted my case without a second thought! Kudos to Daniel, my case manager, and Amanda, who expedited my payment process. Highly recommended.”
“Got in an accident at the beginning of the year, and they have been awesome, especially with it being my first accident and me being like this. They have been very communicative, stayed in contact with me the whole time, giving me updates when there were any and even when there weren’t, and answered any questions I had. I would recommend them to anyone. Everyone I have talked to there has been very friendly. I would give them a 10 out of 10.”
“They made sure that my insurance company covered what I paid for them too, which included the gap for my car that was totaled. My medical costs were taken care of and reduced substantially, so I was able to get more on my settlement. My case manager, Will Garcia, was always helpful in assisting me and answering any questions I had. They really did an amazing job with my case. I would definitely recommend them to anyone in need of this type of legal help. Most lawyers do not help you with the recovery of the car and rental etc. They are amazing.”
