Why You Need A Vancouver, Washington Injury Attorney

Insurance companies make money by collecting premiums and paying out as little as possible on valid claims. The insurer of the person who seriously injured you wants to settle your claim as soon as possible and as quickly as possible. That saves the insurance company money. Personal injury law is highly complex. You don’t know how to properly put a medical bill or report into evidence, and you don’t know the highly technical differences between direct and cross-examination either. By not retaining a qualified personal injury lawyer right after an accident, you’ll likely be giving up rights that you never even knew that you had. A judge won’t give those rights back to you either.

Negligence Law

To prove negligence, a claimant in Washington is required to prove certain elements. Failure of the claimant to prove any single element of negligence will cause his or her case to fail in its entirety. Those elements are that:

  • The person who they blame for their injuries owed them a duty of care
  • There was a breach of that duty
  • The breach of duty caused the claimant to be injured
  • The claimant suffered legally recognized damages

Common Damages in Personal Injury Cases

As every person is different, the injuries and damages in every personal injury case are different too. Common damages claimed in Washington personal injury cases can include:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Past and future lost earnings
  • Any permanent partial disfigurement
  • Any permanent partial disability
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of a normal life
  • Funeral and burial expenses in the event of a wrongful death

Vancouver, WA Personal Injury Practice Areas

The team of qualified and experienced Vancouver, WA personal injury lawyers at Caron, Colven, Robison & Shafton represents people who have been seriously injured in motor vehicle collisions and other accidents in Oregon and Southwest Washington.

Our Vancouver, WA injury attorneys can help you recover compensation for your injuries, including costs for medical expenses and long-term care, lost wages due to the accident, long-term disability, and the pain and suffering and emotional distress caused by the ordeal you were forced to go through at the hands of another.  Our personal injury law firm handles personal injury claims in many areas, including:

Personal Injury – Comparative Fault

Even if the injured party was partially responsible for causing the accident (e.g. by speeding) or contributing to the seriousness of the injuries (e.g. by not wearing seat belt), he or she can still recover from the other driver for the negligent driver’s portion of the responsibility.  In Washington, a plaintiff can recover from a negligent defendant regardless of the proportion of fault apportioned to each party (pure comparative negligence), while in Oregon, under a system is known as modified comparative negligence, the plaintiff can only recover if the defendant was the more negligent party.

Personal Injury – Statute of Limitations

In personal injury cases, you have a certain amount of time from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit.  This amount of time may vary from state to state and often depends upon the type of case involved.  In Washington, the statute of limitations for personal injury actions is generally three years, while in Oregon it is generally two years.  After that time period has expired, you are forever barred from bringing suit.  For this reason, it is important to visit with an attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights, preserve evidence, and make sure that your case is filed in time.

Our Vancouver personal injury attorneys are experienced litigators who understand what it takes to win in the courtroom.  We are sensitive to timing issues and begin working on your case immediately.  Our Vancouver injury lawyers are dedicated to the pursuit of justice and devote themselves to providing you with effective representation designed to get results.
