Serious Accidents, Serious Losses
Personal injury accidents in Washington can range from slip-and-falls to car crashes, each resulting in unique injuries that hinder a victim in their own way and require specific treatment for recovery. When pursuing compensation for the injuries and losses one has sustained in an accident, he or she must evaluate how they have been impacted by the accident. Damages frequently sought in an accident claim include past and future medical expenses, metal anguish, pain and suffering, lost wages, property damage, and loss of earning capacity. Each set of damages can range in severity depending on the accident and must be carefully evaluated when filing a claim.
Additionally, wrongful death claims involve surviving family members seeking compensation for losses associated with the death of a loved one caused by another person’s negligent actions. These losses can include funeral costs, medical bills, loss of consortium, and the loss of the victim’s wages and other work-related benefits. Filing for either of these claims is often confusing and frustrating for victims; as such, it is important to study the ins and outs of these claims and find experienced legal aid.
