How Can a Car Accident Lawyer in Seattle Help You?

A skilled car accident attorney can help you navigate uninsured driver claims. Not only will a knowledgeable car accident attorney handle all conversations with your insurance company but they are best positioned to spot bad-faith negotiation tactics.

Among other things, a car accident lawyer can:

  • File car accident claims and speak with claims adjusters on your behalf.
  • Manage all deadlines in your settlement negotiation and litigation cases.
  • Draft court documents on your behalf.
  • Attend and represent you in all hearings and court proceedings.
  • Develop and execute a discovery plan to gather evidence and build the case against your insurance company.
  • Search for and hire expert witnesses to testify on your behalf.

We Will Handle The Insurance Company

Our accident attorneys know how insurance companies operate and how to combat the underhanded tactics they use to force you into settling for less than you deserve.

We’ll assist you in filing claims paperwork and represent you in the negotiations process. Our Seattle auto accident attorneys will talk to the insurance company, so you don’t have to.

Your injury may have resulted in $100,000+ in medical bills and the negligent party’s insurance company is threatening you to settle for $25,000.

The insurance company is hoping that you will settle for $25,000 because that is what the negligent driver is covered for. In Washington state, drivers are required to carry bodily injury liability coverage at $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident.

Insurance companies don’t want to pay out more than what their customers paid for. If you’ve ever had a medical emergency or prolonged injury, you know how fast medical bills and lost wages can reach the $25,000 coverage limit.

You don’t have to settle for the driver’s coverage amount, and we won’t let the insurance companies force you into an amount that’s less than you deserve.

How Much is My Seattle Car Accident Claim Worth?

Drivers or passengers injured or out of work due to a car accident can pursue financial compensation or damages from the negligent party. The Fang Law Firm of car accident lawyers can help injured accident victims recover:

Lost Wages

Pain and Suffering

Under Washington law, pain and suffering damages can include mental anguish, disability or disfigurement, emotional distress, injury to reputation, and much more. An experienced Seattle car accident lawyer is standing by to help you determine the type of financial compensation you are entitled to.

Is Washington A No-Fault Insurance State?

Washington courts and insurance companies are allowed to limit, or cap, your settlement offer or damage award if they find any contributory fault. Under Washington law, contributory fault means that you were partially at fault for the accident.

For example, an insurance company is likely to present evidence that you braked too hard or were speeding; if they successfully convince a jury of these facts, the jury will assign a percentage to your contributory fault and reduce your damage award by that percentage.

If a jury is convinced that you did brake too hard and were speeding, the insurance company will introduce a percentage for how much those two acts contributed to the accident.

It’s possible that the insurance company will present and the jury will accept that those two acts contributed 20 percent to the cause of the accident. If that is the case, the jury will reduce your damage award by 20 percent.

The best way to defend against contributory fault claims is to hire a knowledgeable car accident lawyer in Seattle to refute insurance representatives’ calculations through the use of evidence and expert witness testimony. Contributory fault isn’t the only thing you have to worry about as a Washington driver.

What if my Accident was Caused by an Uninsured Driver?

An at-fault driver that is uninsured can complicate the process of a personal injury claim. However, there are still methods of obtaining compensation.

What is an Uninsured Driver?

An uninsured driver is a driver that does not have insurance, and without insurance, the at-fault driver cannot cover the property and/or injury damages they caused, meaning you will have to file an insurance claim with your insurance company to cover property damage to yourself, your vehicle, and/or your personal property.

And, unfortunately, Washington ranks #5 in the United States for the number of uninsured motorists, as 21.7% of Washington drivers are uninsured.

To combat the startling high percentage of uninsured drivers, and in turn, uninsured driver claims, Washington requires all insurance companies to offer uninsured motorist coverage to Washington drivers.

In fact, per RCW 48.22.030(4), insurance companies must obtain written waivers of uninsured motorist coverage. It is best practice to purchase uninsured motorist coverage through your insurance company if you are a Washington driver.

Is The Insurance Company On My Side?

It may seem like your insurance company will treat you fairly when you file a insurance claim through your uninsured motorist coverage. However, that is not always the case. In 2001, the Washington Supreme Court found a claimant’s own insurance company guilty of bad faith negotiations related to an uninsured motorist claim.

In Ellwein vs. Hartford Company, 142 Wn. 2nd 766 (2001), the Washington Supreme Court found that the claimant’s insurance company had offered sub-par settlements and even hired an expert witness to testify against the claimant.

No matter who pays the insurance company, they will act in the best interest of their company, putting their profits over your safety. In short, an insurance company will find any legal loophole in order to deny or reduce your award amount.

Multi-Car Accidents

Multi-car accidents involve more than the typical two-vehicles common in most collisions. Also called pile-ups, these accidents often happen on major interstates and highways when vehicles travel in multiple lanes at high speeds.

When the first one or two vehicles collide or otherwise crash, later cars moving in the same direction at high speed don’t have time to stop in order to avoid colliding with the wrecked vehicles. Some may crash directly into the stopped cars and “pile up” while other drivers might swerve to avoid the collision and then lose control and crash nearby.

Who Is Liable in a Multi-Car Accident?

Washington is one of many comparative negligence accident states where fault matters in an accident. In order to claim compensation for damages after a car accident, an injury victim bears the burden of proving liability on the part of the person at fault.

While proving liability in the majority of car accidents is relatively simple— for example, a person who is distracted by their phone and runs into a stopped car in front of them is liable for damages, and a person who makes an unsafe lane change and runs another car off the road is liable—proving who is at fault in a multi-car pileup becomes far more challenging.

Determining Fault in a Multi-Car Accident

It often takes a thorough investigation of a multi-car accident to break down the sequence of events to determine fault and liability. An investigation of a pile-up could include the following:

  • Examining traffic camera footage, dash cam videos, or surveillance footage from nearby businesses or homes that might have captured the accident
  • Examining the police accident report
  • Interviewing drivers and eyewitnesses
  • Using accident reconstruction experts to break down the accident and determine each driver’s role in the crash

In most cases, the investigation of a pileup begins with the first car or cars that crashed. The driver responsible for the initial crash usually bears liability. However, depending on the cause of the accident, liability could also lie with a city road maintenance agency that neglected to clear a road hazard or repair a traffic light, or a car part manufacturer who produced a defective product.

Also, if the drivers of the later cars that added to the pileup were speeding or distracted, they could also bear a percentage of liability under the state’s comparative negligence laws.

Comparative Negligence in Multi-Car Accidents

In a comparative negligence insurance state, even those partly responsible for a car accident can still recover a portion of their damages. For example, a driver found to be 25% at fault for an accident could recover 75% of their damages. If their damages amounted to $100,000, they’d recover $75,000.

Determining each driver’s percentage of fault in a multi-car accident requires a thorough investigation of the evidence.

Damages in a Multi-Car Accident

Any injury victim in a multi-car pileup who is less than 100% at fault for the accident may recover at least a portion of their damages, minus their percentage of fault. If a driver was in no way at fault, they can fully recover damages.

If a multi-car accident causes fatalities, the family members of the victim may claim wrongful death compensation.

If you or a loved one suffered injuries in a complex multi-car accident, you need the help of an experienced car accident attorney to investigate the accident, determine liability, and maximize your recovery of damages.

What to do After an Accident in Seattle

1. Call 911

If there are serious injuries or not, call 911 immediately. This ensures that the police can document the scene accurately, and so you can get medical assistance right away if necessary.

2. Get A Police Report

Most insurance companies, regardless of whether the at-fault driver is insured, will want to see a police report. Getting this report serves as crucial evidence to your car accident claim, serving as an official account of the event that occurred.

3. Don’t Admit Fault

It is imperative to never admit fault when you’ve been involved in an accident as this may limit your ability to recover damages later on. Even the simplest apology can be taken out of context from the insurance company as an admission of fault.

4. Exchange Insurance and Contact Information

Make sure to take a picture of the other driver’s insurance information and identification, you will need it to file a claim or pursue damages at a later date. Be sure to also get the contact information of any witnesses you see at the scene.

5. Contact Your Insurance Company

Letting your insurance company know you’ve been in an accident will help speed up the process. An insurance agent can tell you the information they need to pursue the other driver’s insurance company or start an uninsured driver claim.

6. Go To The Hospital and Seek Medical Attention

If you fear you may be injured or you want to preserve the option to pursue personal injury claims against the other driver, go to the hospital. Courts and insurance companies will want to see medical records in order to verify personal injury damage awards.

8. Hire A Seattle Car Accident Attorney

Hiring a car accident lawyer at the beginning of your insurance proceedings will produce the best results for fair compensation because your Seattle personal injury attorney can guide you through the claims process from the start. They can help you gather evidence, negotiate with insurance companies, and ensure that all legal requirements are met, leading to a successful outcome for compensation.
