There are 3 mistakes victims of auto collisions often make:
(1) Never accept a first offer. Your settlement will have to cover all of your current and future medical bills and lost wages‚ plus compensation for your pain and suffering. But insurance companies pay an army of employees and attorneys to minimize the amount of money you receive. Don’t be tricked into settling for less than you deserve. Instead, let us help protect you from a system that looks out for itself and get you fairly and justly compensated.
(2) Focus on your recovery‚ not your finances. When you’ve been in an auto collision‚ your health is your primary focus – as it should be. Working toward recovery requires your full attention. That means you can’t afford to let anything distract you. Instead, let your lawyer handle the details of your claim. Your time is too important to waste on the phone with the insurance company or buried in forms to fill out. Since most personal injury lawyers are paid on a contingent fee basis, you won’t even have to worry about coming up with the money to pay anything upfront.
(3) Don’t wait until it’s too late. Washington has a 3-year statute of limitations for auto cases; Idaho's statute of limitations is 2 years. The sooner you contact a lawyer‚ the better.
