Federal Way Personal Injury Lawyers
We Take Cases in Federal Way, Tacoma & Throughout Washington
When you suffer an injury due to someone else’s mistakes, it can cause ripples in your day-to-day life, your work, and your overall happiness and wellbeing. Of course, personal injuries can also place a severe financial strain on you and your family as you attempt to pay new medical bills but struggle to keep working due to your debilitations.
At the Lowe Law Group, our Federal Way personal injury attorneys want to be there for you in your time of need and we are prepared to do everything we can to get the justice you deserve. If someone else caused your accident and injuries, then they should be the one who pays for your damages. With our counsel and guidance, you could demand full compensation from them and succeed.
If you are currently facing substantial medical expenses or have missed work and lost your wages, we can help. Even if you have experienced loss of companionship or emotional distress in the form of pain and suffering, we have the tools, resources, and experience necessary to secure you the best results possible. We feel that nothing is as important as obtaining the compensation you deserve, and our legal team intends to be a crucial part of that process.
Filing a Personal Injury Claim
Getting the compensation that you deserve from the party that hurt you begins with filing a personal injury claim because you can’t expect them to willingly hand over the money you need to recover. The trouble with injury claims usually begins the moment an insurance company gets involved. Filing against someone’s personal finances is unreasonable and unfruitful most of the time, so you will be filing against an insurance policy they hold, like an auto insurance policy, a homeowners’ insurance policy, or a liability insurance policy.
Our attorneys can help you file against the right policy and for the right amount of compensation. Furthermore, we’re here to support and guide you at every step in your claim process, from initial investigations to negotiations for a settlement. When settlements are not possible, Lowe Law Group also has the ability to litigate for our clients.
Who Can File a Personal Injury Claim?
Washington uses pure comparative negligence laws when considering liability after an accident. With this system, anyone can file a personal injury claim against anyone else who caused or contributed to their accident, injuries, and damages. Even if another party contributed just 1% to your accident, you could name them as a defendant. The lower your liability, though, the better your claim will be.
What Will Your Claim Be Worth?
Damages that can contribute to the value of your claim include:
- Medical costs
- Lost wages
- Permanent disabilities
- Pain and suffering
- Property damages
- And more
When we are working on your case, part of our job will be to total all of your damages to get the complete value or worth of your claim. Typically, the worse a client’s injuries, the more valuable their claim will be because severe injuries cause significant ramifications of all sorts.
The value of your claim can be limited by insurance policy caps, though. For example, if the auto insurance policy you file against after a car accident has a $100,000 limit for all damages, then that could be the limit to what you can expect through a settlement. To ensure that your damages are fully covered, we can look for additional insurance policies to file against.
