Filing a Personal Injury Claim in Edmonds, WA

Discuss Your Legal Options with Our Experienced Attorney

Individual people, businesses (large and small), product manufacturers, governments, and other entities have a duty of care to others. This duty of care essentially requires these parties to take reasonable action to not harm other people. For example, a product manufacturer must ensure that the products they create are reasonably safe for consumer use and a motorist must exhibit reasonable caution while driving to avoid causing an accident. When the duty of care is breached, injured victims have the right to take legal action in the form of a personal injury lawsuit.

At Huppert Law Firm, PLLC, we represent victims of negligent and wrongful actions. If you were injured or lost a loved one, and you believe someone else is liable, get in touch with us as soon as possible. Our Edmonds lawyer can help you determine if you have grounds for a claim and, if so, can help you pursue the maximum compensation you are entitled to receive.

Elements of Personal Injury Claims

In order to pursue compensation after an accident, you will need to prove the following elements:

  • The at-fault party owed you a duty of care
  • This duty of care was breached
  • The breach of the duty of care led to your injuries
  • As a result of your injuries, you suffered damages

For example, if you were involved in a car accident, you will need to show that the other driver acted negligently or wrongfully in some way. This could be something like running a red light, speeding, or driving while using a cell phone. You will then need to show that this led to the accident and that, as a result of the accident, you suffered certain injuries and damages. In the legal world, “damages” is a term used to describe the economic and non-economic losses caused by the accident/your injuries.

Some examples of damages you may be able to recover compensation for include:

  • Medical bills
  • The cost of ongoing treatment
  • Lost wages/income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Lost/reduced quality of life
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Inconvenience
