According to the Washington State Department of Transportation, in 2020, there were a total of 86,263 car accidents in the state, and 2,081 of those crashes resulted in a possible serious injury. In addition to creating health problems, car accidents often create financial burdens. The victim of an accident may need to take time off work to see the doctor or may need to pay for repairs to their damaged vehicle. These extra costs can quickly add up and cause serious stress.

Washington State Car Accident Laws

Washington Is an At-Fault State

Washington is an at-fault state, which means that the person who was responsible for causing the accident will be held liable for the expenses the accident creates. Typically, that person’s insurance company must cover those expenses.

After a car crash, you have options:

  1. You can choose to manage the claim and communication with the insurance companies on your own;
  2. You can call us for a free consultation and we can advise you regarding whether or not hiring counsel is an economically feasible decision;
  3. You can hire an experienced injury and whiplash attorney in Issaquah to manage the legalities including all communication with the insurance companies.
  • The majority of our clients come to us because they do not have time or interest in managing an insurance claim. Hiring an experienced car accident attorney and law firm in Issaquah allows them to focus on healing from their injuries caused by the negligent driver.
  • If Pearson Law Firm is not the right fit for you we can connect you to other qualified personal injury and whiplash lawyers in the Issaquah area who have expertise in motor vehicle collisions.

State Laws Addressing Personal Injury Claims

If you are considering filing a personal injury lawsuit for damages caused by a car wreck, note these two important aspects of Washington state law.

Statute of Limitations

In Washington, you have three years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. Generally, the statute of limitations for accidents in Washington State is three years. HOWEVER, there are exceptions depending on the type of negligence and the age of the injured party, and other considerations. Whatever the applicable Statute of Limitations, if you fail to act to fully protect your rights before that time, you forever lose the opportunity to do so.
