Compensation You Could Recover in a Personal Injury Case
You can seek compensation for your past and future losses when you file an insurance claim or lawsuit. These losses might include:
- Medical Bills
- Pain and Suffering
- Emotional Distress
- Lost Wages
- Lost Earning Capacity
- Damage to Personal Property
- Loss of Consortium
- Loss of Enjoyment of Life
If you choose to sue the negligent party for the losses you suffered, you must observe the statute of limitations. This is a strict timeframe for filing a lawsuit in court. Generally Washington enforces a three-year statute of limitations. That means you must initiate your case within three years of the injury or incident. Once this deadline passes, you could lose your right to seek compensation. Every claim should be analyzed on a case by case basis regarding the statute of limitations because there are exceptions to the three-year statute of limitations.
