What Is The Process For Filing A Personal Injury Claim or Lawsuit?
Washington state's Made Whole Doctrine permits accident victims to pursue a legal claim for compensation in the event that the victim was injured by another person's negligence or wrongful conduct. Pursuing a personal injury claim against an at-fault party typically involves identifying a liability insurance policy that provides insurance coverage for the damages that the victim suffered. Identifying an active insurance policy for an at-fault party can sometimes be very difficult, which is why Davis Law Group employs a team of experienced investigators on-staff who leave no stone unturned in the pursuit of justice for our clients.
Anyone can file a claim with an insurance company. However, there are many important steps to take and mistakes to avoid when it comes to dealing with insurance companies. Hiring a qualified personal injury attorney can help victims avoid making these mistakes and
If a claim is not resolved, the next step for accident victims is to file a lawsuit in the appropriate jurisdiction against any at-fault parties and, presumably, the insurance company or companies which sold an insurance policy to the at-fault party. Filing a lawsuit is a very complex process that requires expertise and knowledge of local court rules, the laws in the jurisdiction where the incident occurred,

Do I Need A Lawyer For A Personal Injury Case?
Not all accident victims require the assistance of a lawyer for a personal injury case, and it's not always easy to determine exactly when an accident victim may benefit from the assistance of a lawyer. Typically speaking, insurance companies tend to fight tooth-and-nail against claims that involve a significant level of damages, such as medical bills, lost wages, and general pain & suffering. Accident victims tend to have an easier time settling their own case when the damages are minimal and the recovery period is shorter.
Of course, all personal injury cases are unique and different in their own way and there are no hard-and-fast rules when it comes to evaluating a potential case. Take advantage of Davis Law Group's offer of a free case review & legal consultation with our team to get an honest recommendation about whether our legal team may be able to add significant value to your case.
