What to Do After a Car Accident

Your actions in the immediate aftermath of a car accident are important to the outcome of your case. The first step should be to get emergency medical attention to anyone with serious injuries. The police should be called to report the accident, so you should make sure to obtain a copy of the police report and other information. A skilled Olympia car accident lawyer can help you make the best use of the evidence in your case.

If possible, gather as much information as you can, such as:

  • Names and contact information of other drivers and passengers
  • Information for any eyewitnesses
  • Insurance information from other drivers
  • Pictures of the accident scene, if possible

Car Accidents FAQ

Is it worth getting an attorney for a car accident?

The vast majority of people who have hired a car accident attorney would likely tell you it was more than worth it for the stress relief alone. When you file a car accident claim, you will be challenged by the insurance company’s defense attorneys, who have built their careers on slapping down incoming claims, no matter how valid. Dealing with them alone can be terribly stressful and could worsen your chances of getting a fair case result.

How does my lawyer get paid?

Our car accident attorneys are paid through contingency fees, which means you do not owe us any attorney fees unless we end your case with a financial settlement or award. Also, contingency fees are paid as a percentage of your total compensation, so you will always be able to afford to hire our attorneys.

What if the accident was partially my fault? Can I still get compensation?

Washington uses pure comparative negligence laws, which will diminish your compensation by a percentage equal to your liability. It does not prohibit your recovery unless you are 100% at fault. In other words, you can sue the other driver for your car accident even if you are 99% liable. Although, that would be very unusual. More commonly, drivers will sue even if they are 20 or 30% liable because the amount of compensation owed to them could still be significant.

How long do I have to file an accident claim?

A three-year statute of limitations applies for car accident cases in Washington. Typically, the clock to file a claim begins on the day of the accident because that is when the injuries caused by it should be reasonably noticeable. Once the three-year statute of limitations ends, your claim can get thrown right out by the court once it is filed.

What if the driver doesn’t have auto insurance?

When you’re hit by a driver without auto insurance, you can still try to get damage coverage from your auto insurance provider if you have an uninsured motorist (UM) insurance policy. This type of policy is usually an optional add-on, so you might not have it. If you’re not sure, then call your insurance company to verify.

Can I file a claim if I was injured as a passenger?

Injured passengers can file a claim against anyone who is partially or fully liable for the car accident, including their own driver. However, a driver’s insurance covers anyone in their own vehicle, so there might not be a reason to pursue a claim against them if the damages will already be provided.
