  • Broken bones

  • Spinal cord damage and paralysis
  • Cuts, abrasions, and lacerations
  • Whiplash and soft tissue damage

Legal Options for Federal Way Accident Victims

Washington follows a fault-based system when handling car accidents, meaning the driver responsible for the crash is liable for your damages. You can collect compensation for these damages, including medical bills and vehicle repairs, through a personal injury lawsuit or insurance claim.

Most car accident cases begin in the insurance stage before proceeding to a lawsuit. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, however, it may be more viable to file a lawsuit from the beginning.

How to Prove a Car Accident Lawsuit in Washington

If you are filing a lawsuit for your car accident injuries, you will need to establish the driver’s negligence to secure compensation. All personal injury claims, including car accident cases, require you to provide sufficient evidence to prove four key facts:

  • The driver owed you a duty of care. All drivers have a duty to drive safely and follow all applicable traffic laws.
  • The driver breached his or her duty of care through a negligent act or failure to act.
  • The driver’s breach of duty directly caused the accident and your injuries.
  • You sustained damages in the accident that you can collect compensation for.

Your attorney from Colburn Law will gather all available evidence to establish the nature and extent of your injuries and the events leading up to the crash, including surveillance footage, witness testimony, medical records, and expert evaluations. Your lawyer can also help you calculate your damages, enlisting the assistance of life care experts and economists to determine your long-term care costs.
