Olympia Personal Injury Lawyer Helping Injured Victims Fight for Maximum Compensation
When you are strolling through the historical halls of the Washington State Capitol Building or just taking in some fresh air and enjoying the water views at Percival Landing Park, getting injured and figuring out how to pay your bills may be the very last thing on your mind.

Capital Injury Law has helped many Olympia-area residents to secure maximum compensation for their claims — give us a call at 360-209-3360 to see how we can help you, too.
How Do I Know if I Have a Personal Injury Case?
Most personal injury cases are based on negligence — the fact that someone else (an individual or organization) owed a duty of care to you, and that they breached that duty of care by engaging in reckless actions or failing to take action when necessary. To initiate a personal injury case, you need to be able to demonstrate that the other party breached their duty of care, and the breach resulted in a dangerous condition or accident that led to your injuries.
In addition, your injuries must have been significant enough to cause damages, both economic and non-economic. If you slipped and fell at a shopping mall but only suffered a couple of bruises and no broken bones or significant injuries, your case is unlikely to hold in court. The same goes for a plaintiff engaging in reckless actions — if someone was roller skating in a parking lot despite posted signs prohibiting the activity and the person ends up rolling over a crack on the pavement and falling, their chances of receiving any compensation are slim. If you are unsure whether you have a case or not, please reach out to our legal team and we will be happy to advise you.

How Long Does It Take for a Personal Injury Settlement to Be Awarded?
The time it may take for a case to settle depends on the complexity of the claim, the case value, and on whether the case is settled outside of court or not. Some cases only requiring negotiations directly with an insurance company may settle in a matter of a few months. Cases that go to trial may take several months, sometimes years to reach a decision. Your lawyer for personal injury can advise you on the best course of action for your case.
