Washington Personal Injury Doctrine
Personal injury incidents are classified under what is known as tort law; essentially, this is the field in which most civil suits fall under, as the aim of this field is to correct an injustice and to relieve a plaintiff from the wrongful behavior of another party. The specific laws governing personal injury cases vary by state, but Washington does enforce a policy referred to as comparative fault.
This means that fault is attributed on a percentage scale, so plaintiffs may receive compensation even if they were partially at fault, so long as your blame is less than 50 percent. However, by the same token, this also means that you may have to pay even if you were injured– for example, if you are awarded $10,000 but you were 30 percent at fault, you would then net $7,000, as percent would be deducted.
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.

Potential Damages to Recoup
As the parameters of every case are unique, so too are the damages. The size and type of damages that are awarded will vary greatly depending on the type of accident, the severity of negligence or malpractice involved, and the extent of the injuries that are suffered by the plaintiff. There are two main types of damages: compensatory and punitive. The most common examples of compensatory damages are:
Pain and suffering
Loss of enjoyment
On the other hand, punitive damages are heavy fines that go beyond normal reimbursement, and are meant to punish especially reckless behavior. For example, a trucking company may be forced to pay punitive damages if one of their drivers commits a heinous accident while impaired.
As legal professionals, we have the ability to navigate through the complexities of each case, big or small. We have years of experience negotiating against insurance companies and 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.
