Federal Way Car Accident Lawyers
Fighting for Your Rights & Interests in the Tacoma, WA Area
Every day, countless people are injured at the hands of another and forced to endure painful injuries, costly medical bills, emotional distress, and loss of work and wages. In other tragic cases, loved ones are lost as the result of a car accident. Though this is the case, not everyone is lucky enough to get a favorable settlement, one they deserve. This is often because of insurance companies who are resistant to paying victims the full amount they deserve. It is during this time in which it is essential you enlist in the help of a Federal Way car accident attorney who won’t give up on you or your rights, such as ours at Lowe Law Group.
Don't hesitate to contact us to arrange your free, no-obligation case evaluation!
Generally speaking, insurance companies will do everything to prevent themselves from paying you what you actually deserve. This is a practice our legal team finds completely unacceptable. They will often attempt to blame your injuries on pain unrelated to the car accident, such as a preexisting injury. They may also try to shift the guilt of the accident, stating that the collision was your fault. As you can imagine, it is essential you have a legal advocate who won’t allow you to be overrun by an insurance company who doesn’t care about your best interests.
What to Do After an Accident
There are steps to take after a car accident to protect your rights and health. These actions can help you work with your attorney to build an effective case to fight for just compensation.
Your first step after a car accident is to call 911 to ensure that an accident report will be built and that help is on the way. While at the scene of a car accident, you will want to keep yourself safe by checking for injuries, moving vehicles out of the road if possible, and remaining at the site until help comes.
There are a number of items that you will want to document. Even though you will likely feel stress and overwhelmed, try to get this information from all other parties:
Basic contact and personal information
Insurance provider and policy number
Take photos of the scene of the accident. This should include any traffic signals, all vehicles involved, and any injuries suffered.
Most importantly, you will want to seek medical treatment, regardless of how serious your injuries are. Some injuries show up later down the road and early detection can be essential to optimum health and ensuring that you can get the compensation you deserve. Additionally, having documentation of your doctor visits and treatment methods is important for your attorney to build an effective injury claim.
It is essential that you seek legal help as well. We can investigate your crash, determine the potential value of your claim, and fight for the full compensation that you deserve.
Your Time to Take Action is Limited
Auto accident lawsuits in Washington typically must be filed within three years of the date of the collision to be heard in the state's court system. This is commonly known as a "statute of limitations." If you do not file a claim before this deadline passes, you will effectively lose your right to pursue a claim and will be unable to recover any compensation for your injuries.
While three years may seem like a long time, from a strategic standpoint, it is important you give yourself as much time as possible to build a case to maximize your chances of securing a favorable outcome. If you think you may be approaching the filing deadline, contact us immediately.

"I can’t say how grateful I am that I found Pete Lowe. When
I was seriously hurt in an automobile accident, I didn’t know where
or who to turn to. Luckily a friend of mine referred me to Pete. Pete
was awesome. He immediately started working on my case and I started seeing
results. He got bill collectors to stop harassing me, helped me figure
out my health insurance, and finally got me a great settlement. If you
are hurt get Pete."
