How Can a Seattle Neck Injury Lawyer Help?

If your neck injury resulted from a car accident, a Seattle personal injury lawyer can help you recover from the at-fault party’s insurance company. The insurance claim and settlement process is a confusing and complex process. A neck injury attorney can assist you with the following:

  • File the claim against the at-fault driver’s insurance for you
  • Handle all communications and requests for more information from you
  • Negotiate with the insurance company to get you the best possible settlement amount
  • Gather evidence to support your claim
  • Hire expert witnesses to testify on your behalf and/or corroborate your claims
  • File a civil lawsuit against the at-fault or insurance company if necessary

Among other things, a neck injury attorney knows the process and knows the tricks that insurance companies try to pull. When you introduce a neck injury attorney into settlement negotiations, the insurance company will know you’re serious.

Recovering Damages After a Neck Injury

Recovering from the at-fault driver’s car insurance

You can file a claim against an at-fault driver’s insurance company. Washington requires that all drivers carry:

  • $25,000 of bodily injury or death of 1 person in any 1 accident.
  • $50,000 of bodily injury or death of any 2 people in any 1 accident.
  • $10,000 of injury to or destruction of property of others in any 1 accident.

In most cases, treatment and recovery will cost more than the insured’s coverage amount. An insurance company will do everything they can to convince you to take a smaller settlement than you deserve, and smaller than the coverage they provide their insureds. A neck injury lawyer in Seattle knows the tricks that insurance company’s use and can combat these underhanded tactics to get you a settlement you deserve.

Recovering from the at-fault driver or uninsured employer

In the event that the driver does not have insurance or the settlement is too small, a car accident attorney can help you file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver for negligence or personal injury. In these cases, you can recover non-economic and economic damages.

  • Economic damages: Economic damages include financial compensation for doctors visits, surgery, rehabilitative care, physical therapy, and lost wages.
  • Non-economic damages: Non-economic damages include financial compensation for pain and suffering.

A Seattle neck injury attorney can walk you through the complex litigation process including preparing for court, managing deadlines, and representing you throughout the proceedings.

If your neck injury is work related, a neck injury attorney can assist you in recovering from your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance or from your employer directly.

Recovering from workers’ compensation insurance

If your employer carries workers’ compensation insurance, you can file a claim with the insurance company. Workers compensation covers:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Permanent disability
  • Short-term disability

A neck injury lawyer can help you walk through this difficult process and assist you in settlement negotiations. Insurance companies are a business and they want to protect their most valuable asset: their money. They will do everything they can to convince you to take a smaller settlement offer. You shouldn’t have to worry about anything else but recovering when you’re suffering from a neck injury.

It is important to note that the Washington Labor and Employment provides that your employer must receive an accident report within one year of your injury in order to file a claim.
