Award-Winning Car Accident Lawyers Serving Injured Washingtonians
A Good Attorney Can Alleviate a Lot of Stress
We make sure to explain to every client that a personal injury suit is an extremely stressful endeavor, but you can’t fully realize it until you’re immersed in it. That being said, one of the biggest benefits that you will receive after retaining a Van Law Firm attorney is a dramatic decrease in stress and an increase in peace of mind. When you trust us to handle your case, we can keep you as involved or uninvolved as you like throughout the entire process. We spend our time focusing on your case, so that you can focus on family and rehabilitation.
Recovering Your Compensation
Costs start piling up basically the moment after an accident occurs. As the plaintiff, one of the most important aspects of a car accident suit is a scrupulous account of expenses, as it will be dissected by both the courts and the opposition.The faster you retain our services, the faster we can get a grip on your expenses, which will save a lot of time as the case moves along.
If your injuries are severe to the point where they will require ongoing care, we will be sure to account for that in our calculations. In addition, if you are a parent or otherwise have dependents that rely on you, we will also consider how big of an impact your injuries have had on them as well. Plaintiffs with the most severe injuries may also be eligible to receive punitive damages on top of standard compensation.
Negotiations will begin after we’re confident that a favorable estimate has been tallied. Our in-house litigation team is also more than capable of winning a trial in court if a settlement cannot be reached. Not to mention, if there are multiple parties found liable, we will be sure to recover from each.
We Accept All Crash Cases

- Bicycle accidents
- Boat accidents

Comparative Fault in Washington Car Accidents
Although retaining an attorney is important, being completely truthful with them is just as vital. If they ask you about your own level of fault, it’s not meant to be an accusation. Instead, they are simply trying to prepare you for a set of laws you will encounter known in Washington as comparative fault.
Under comparative fault, all parties may be found liable at the discretion of the court. Your “title” (plaintiff, defendant) does not change your potential liability, and any percentage of fault that is attributed to you will be redacted from your settlement in equal proportion. The last point to consider is that any party with over half (50 percent) of the blame will be barred from compensation in general.
