How Long Do I Have To File A Redmond Personal Injury Claim?

The statute of limitations is a legal time limit that sets the maximum amount of time after an event or incident within which a legal claim or lawsuit can be filed. Once the statute of limitations expires, the injured party can no longer bring legal action, regardless of how strong their case might be.

The purpose of the statute of limitations is to ensure that legal disputes are resolved in a timely manner and to prevent parties from bringing claims long after the event or incident occurred. This helps to promote fairness and efficiency in the legal system.

In Redmond, there is a statute of limitations that sets a deadline for filing a personal injury claim. Generally, you have three years from the date of the accident or injury to file a lawsuit. It is important to file your claim before this deadline, as otherwise, you may be barred from recovering compensation for your injuries. A Redmond personal injury attorney will be able to assist with this process.

What Can I Recover in a Redmond Personal Injury Claim?

The potential recovery that you are able to claim is known as damages. The eligible types of damages will vary depending on what the laws of the state allow plaintiffs to claim in court. To recover damages, you will need to prove that the other party was negligent (the responsible party) and that their negligence caused your injuries and work with the involved insurance company. For personal injury claims, some common types of damages that you might be able to ask for include:

  • Medical expenses: Medical expenses refer to the costs incurred by a person for medical treatment related to their injury or illness. This includes expenses such as hospital bills, doctor’s fees, medication, physical therapy, and other related costs.
  • Lost wages: Lost wages refer to the income a person has lost due to their injury or illness. This includes wages that the person would have earned if they had not been injured and unable to work, as well as future lost earnings if the injury or illness is expected to impact their ability to work in the future.
  • Pain and suffering: Pain and suffering refer to the physical and emotional pain, discomfort, and distress caused by the injury or illness. This includes both immediate pain and suffering as well as any ongoing or chronic pain or emotional distress resulting from the injury or illness.
  • Property damage: Property damage refers to the loss or damage of personal property as a result of an accident or incident. This includes damage to a vehicle, home, or other personal property that may have been damaged in an accident or incident.

Is There a Limit On What I Can Recover?

You may be aware that some states impose a “cap” on how much the plaintiff can recover. In Washington, there generally is no cap on damages for personal injury claims. This means that injured parties may be entitled to recover the full amount of damages they have suffered, without any limitations on the amount they can receive.

There are some exceptions to this rule. For example, there may be caps on damages in certain types of cases, such as non-economic damages in medical malpractice claims. Non-economic damages include things like pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life, as opposed to economic damages like medical expenses and lost wages.

As of 2021, the cap on non-economic damages in medical malpractice claims in Redmond is $1.05 million. However, there are some exceptions to this cap. If the injured party has suffered a “catastrophic injury,” such as paralysis from spinal cord injury, the cap on non-economic damages does not apply, and a Redmond spinal cord injury attorney could help you recover more than $1.05 million.

How Do You Prove a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Washington?

To successfully prove a personal injury lawsuit in Washington, you must establish that the at-fault party’s negligence led to the injuries and the damages that you have suffered. Negligence encompasses four key elements: duty of care, breach of duty, causation, and damages.

  • Duty of Care: This involves proving that the defendant had a legal obligation to act in a certain way toward the plaintiff. For instance, a driver has a duty to operate their vehicle safely to avoid harming others.
  • Breach of Duty: Next, you must demonstrate that the defendant failed to fulfill their duty of care. An example is a driver running a red light, which is a clear breach of the duty to drive safely and follow traffic laws.
  • Causation: This element connects the breach of duty to the injuries sustained. It must be shown that the defendant’s actions (or inactions) directly caused the accident and your injuries.
  • Damages: Finally, you must prove that you suffered actual damages as a result of the breach. This can include medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Various types of evidence can help you prove these elements. Medical records, eyewitness testimonies, accident reports, and expert witness statements are commonly used to build a robust case. Photos or videos of the incident and the scene can also provide compelling evidence. Your attorney from Malcolm Law Firm can help you gather this information and craft a strong case that proves the defendant’s negligence and establishes your right to compensation.

How Much Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Cost?

Most personal injury lawyers in Washington—including the attorneys at Malcolm Law Firm—operate on a contingency fee basis. This means that their fees are contingent upon the outcome of your case. If you do not win your case or secure a settlement, you do not owe the lawyer any fees. If you do secure an award, the contingency fee will be an agreed-upon percentage of the recovered amount.

This fee structure is beneficial as it provides access to legal representation without upfront costs and aligns the lawyer’s interests with your success. In simple terms, you can hire legal representation without worrying about paying for their services upfront. Your lawyer will clearly explain the terms of the arrangement to you beforehand so that you know what to expect.
