The fact is that you can face significant losses in the wake of a personal injury, and it can take a considerable amount of time to recognize the full extent of these damages. The insurance company handling your claim knows all too well that you’re in a vulnerable position, and because they’re motivated by profits, they will take whatever steps they need to in order to keep your settlement as low as possible.
Often this means making a lowball settlement offer early in the process – knowing that you may be desperate enough to accept just about any amount. This is why consulting with a trusted personal injury attorney prior to accepting any offer the insurance company makes is always in your best interest.
Just like anywhere else, Lake Tapps experiences its fair share of risk in relation to all the following:
A wrongful death claim in which you lose a loved one to someone else’s negligence is very similar to a personal injury claim, but you’ll file the claim on behalf of your lost relative. Regardless of the kind of personal claim you file, a dedicated personal injury attorney has the skill and legal insight to fiercely advocate for a resolution that upholds your rights.

The losses you experience as a result of being injured by the negligence of another can be so significant that they’re difficult to assess accurately. These losses – or legal damages – are generally classified into several basic categories.
You not only face the immediate medical expenses associated with the accident in question but must also address any ongoing healthcare needs. Serious injuries can lead to secondary health concerns as well as complications, and some require ongoing care – the scope of which can be difficult to predict. Accepting a settlement before you’re fully aware of the associated costs can leave you without the resources you need to reach your most complete recovery.
Your injuries can also leave you off the job, which can lead to a decrease in earnings. This is difficult enough in the face of your mounting medical expenses, but if your ability to earn is affected, it can prove financially devastating. Because our jobs are so intertwined with our concept of self, there can also be emotional losses involved.
The physical and emotional pain you suffer as a result of someone else’s negligence can be daunting and can make your overall recovery that much more difficult to achieve.
Sometimes, proving who is at fault in a personal injury claim is fairly straightforward – such as when a drunk driver causes an accident that injures someone who was obeying all the rules of the road. In traffic accidents, driver negligence, such as impairment or excess speed, is often at the root of liability, but third parties, such as a parts manufacturer or the municipality responsible for road maintenance, can also bear or share responsibility.
Every personal injury claim is unique to the circumstances involved, and pinpointing the liable party is best left to the accomplished personal injury attorney representing you.
As mentioned, insurance companies that handle personal injury claims are interested in making money, and as a result, it’s necessary to proceed with caution, which includes all the following:
The insurance company is looking for cracks in your case, and this often means dissecting claimants’ statements and social media posts and crafting new meanings that go on to harm their claims.
Your formidable personal injury attorney will ably address all the following tasks in their focused efforts to strengthen your claim and obtain fair compensation:
