Car Accident / MVA

Car crashes are unexpected, stressful, and painful events that may seriously disrupt a victim’s life. You may worry about how you will pay for emergency medical care, follow-up treatment, rehabilitation, and out-of-pocket expenses. Moreover, you may need to take time off work to rest and recover.

Unfortunately, negotiating with an at-fault driver's insurer is not always easy. In most cases, insurance companies are focused on profit, and they will try to find some way in which you were at fault to reduce their own policyholder's liability. Snohomish Law Group attorneys fight for victims of negligent driving to seek the compensation they need and deserve
Establishing the Liability of a Negligent Driver
In most cases, car accidents are the result of driver negligence. To establish negligence, a plaintiff needs to show the defendant's duty of care, a breach of duty, actual and proximate (legal) causation, and actual damages.

For example, if a defendant is texting while driving, this will likely be a breach of the duty to use reasonable care. A reasonably prudent driver would not be expected to engage in this distracting behavior. If the texting causes that person to run a stop sign and rear-end another car, he or she likely would be liable for the victim’s injuries.

If you can successfully establish the other driver's negligence, you may be able to recover both economic damages as well as noneconomic damages. Economic damages often include medical bills, lost wages, lost earning capacity, out-of-pocket expenses, and medical travel mileage. Noneconomic damages are more subjective and typically include loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, disfigurement, and loss of consortium.
You only have so long.

In Washington, you have three years from the date of a car accident to file a lawsuit. Although this may seem like a substantial amount of time, you should consult an attorney right away. In many cases, the insurance company for the other driver will be out at the scene and building a defense as quickly as possible.

In complicated situations, it may be necessary to retain an accident reconstruction expert, and these experts rely on debris, and eyewitness testimony to provide opinions on important issues such as fault. Memories fade, and evidence can disappear, so it is crucial to retain a car accident lawyer to look into these issues right away.

    Your Choice of Attorney Throughout the Process

    “Snohomish Law Group attorney Philip Wakefield did an outstanding job in representing my daughter. He laid out the legal process in detail, set expectations, and worked hard to obtain a better than hoped for result. Should anyone in the Snohomish area ever need an attorney, I highly recommend Snohomish Law Group!!”

    David Dalton

    “I’m going to write my review straight forward I was looking at being convicted of my 10th DUI I thought I was dead meat as they had me dead to rights. However Mr. Wakefield and his team proceeded to not only get the charge reduced but also no fine and no jail time. My eternal gratitude to the Snohomish Law Group”

    Jonathan Thomas

    “Mr. Wakefield and his expertise was able to get myself and my siblings a large chunk (Much more than we imagined) of our inheritance from our Auntie that was wrongfully taken from us after her passing. We are eternally grateful to Mr. Wakefield and all that helped him in our case, to achieve this settlement. Thank you so much for your compassion.”
