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.

These guys are amazing. Helped me throughout the process. Always there when I need help. Inititailly 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.Milby Mags
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 communicated, stayed in contact with me the whole time, giving me updates when there were any and even when there weren’t and answered any question 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.Ethan Gullet
They made sure that my insurance company covered what I paid for them to 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.Teresa Cuthbertson
