Why You Need a Bellevue Personal Injury Lawyer

A severe injury can mean months of recovery and bills piling up. On top of that, dealing with an insurance company to get the compensation you need can be overwhelming. With a Bellevue personal injury lawyer representing you, every aspect of your case will be taken care of. Their extensive court experience combined with knowledge of state insurance and personal injury laws will be your best chance at recovering full and fair compensation. In addition, an attorney will know how to protect you from an insurance adjuster’s tactics that try to place blame on you to reduce their liability and will not back down, even if that means representing you at trial.

Types of Compensation You Can Recover

Personal injury victims are often entitled to recover the following types of compensation.

  • Medical Bills: Current and future costs for any medical care or related expenses.
  • Lost Wages: Current and future lost income due to your recovery. This can include diminished earning capacity, which is the difference in income you can make now compared to before the accident.
  • Pain and Suffering: Compensation for the physical and psychological pain and discomfort you have had to endure and will in the future.
  • Loss of Enjoyment of Life: Your injuries may prevent you from enjoying the activities you used to do before the accident, such as hobbies, exercising, etc.

Punitive damages may be available, but they are rarely awarded because this type of compensation punishes a guilty party for gross negligence or egregious behavior.

Personal Injury Laws in Bellevue

Statute of Limitations

Washington has a statute of limitations limiting the amount of time personal injury victims in Bellevue have to file a claim. In most cases, you have three years from the date of the accident. Filing beyond this deadline will result in your case being dismissed, and you will be unable to recover any compensation.

Pure Comparative Negligence

Pure comparative negligence is a law used when determining liability and assigns each party involved in a personal injury accident a percentage of fault. Each party’s fault percentage will directly impact how much compensation they either owe or receive. For example, if you are awarded $100,000 but found 30% at fault for your injuries, you will recover 70% of your award or $70,000.
