Don’t Miss Your Window to File a Personal Injury Claim
When faced with an unexpected and debilitating personal injury, it’s important that someone looking to file a personal injury claim or learn more about the possibility of filing a claim to understand that there is a time limit to file.
In Washington, there is a three-year time limit, or “statute of limitations,” within which you must file your lawsuit in the state’s civil court system. If you do not bring your claim within the time limit, you may be permanently barred from recovering any compensation for your injuries, lost wages and other impacts from an accident.
While this may seem like a long period of time, it’s important to remember that waiting too long, or simply putting off an evaluation of a personal injury claim, could hurt your final settlement or create a steeper hill to a final claim settlement.
As a team that has worked with thousands of clients to represent their interests – financial and otherwise – in a personal injury claim, we know that it can be overwhelming to know what steps to take to start a claim evaluation.
We also know that symptoms and physical impacts of an accident can show up days or even weeks after the incident. That’s why we always encourage anyone involved in an accident to seek immediate medical care and get a thorough evaluation by a medical professional.
