Car Accident Injuries
If your personal injury stems from an automobile accident, or if you were struck by a vehicle as a bicyclist or pedestrian, Kennewick’s no-fault laws will come into play. Kennewick law provides that driver, passenger, bicyclist, and pedestrian injuries will be covered by the vehicle’s insurance, up to the policy limits, regardless of who was at fault for the accident.
Even if you were partially at fault for the accident that resulted in your injuries, you might still be entitled to recover compensation from another at-fault party, depending on the circumstances of your case. Give us a call so we can discuss your case and whether this applies to you.
If you lost a loved one due to someone else’s fault, you might have a wrongful death claim for some of the losses that you have suffered as a result. These cases are difficult for surviving family members, but recoverable compensation can provide financial stability that may help you and your family as you go through the grief and healing process.
What is the Statute of Limitations on Benton County Personal Injury Claims?
The statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Benton County varies depending on the type and specific circumstances of your case. In general, injured parties have three years from the date of the injury to file a claim in Benton County. You will also have a shorter filing deadline if your case involves a government entity or medical malpractice claim. Because there are multiple circumstances and factors to consider in your claim, it is important to see an attorney as soon as possible after your accident. This ensures that you do not miss any applicable deadlines and ultimately lose your right to compensation from the responsible party.
The Role of a Personal Injury Attorney
Personal injury laws are complicated, and cases can be difficult to prove without an experienced Benton County personal injury attorney. As mentioned above, insurance companies are not on your side, and they often purposely undervalue personal injury plaintiffs’ claims to save money. Simply having an attorney correspond with insurance companies on your behalf is enough to prevent them from proposing any low offers. Let the personal injury attorneys at Roberts Jones Law help you calculate the true value of your case to help with insurance negotiations and case preparation.
