Is Legal Action Right for You?
Using a cell phone while driving is a form of negligence. Call (888) 228-3860 for a free consultation and find out if you have a case.
If a serious injury accident was caused by another driver using their cell phone, an accident survivor may pursue legal action. To ensure that medical needs don't jeopardize an individual's financial wellbeing, he or she can seek compensation by filing a personal injury claim or lawsuit.
Every motor vehicle accident and personal injury case is different. To make the best decision for the circumstances of your accident and injury, you may want to speak with an attorney who can help familiarize you with your legal rights and options.
The decision to take legal action can seem overwhelming due to the complex nature of the personal injury process. However, with the guidance and representation of a compassionate and aggressive lawyer, you can rest assured that your legal rights will be protected. A successful personal injury case not only often assists an accident survivor with their finances but can also bring emotional healing through closure once the reckless party is held accountable.
What Types of Damages Are Available in Washington?
The types of economic and non-economic damages that may be available to a personal injury victim significantly rely on the details of the accident and the extent of the injuries suffered.
Car crashes are capable of causing catastrophic injuries that can take years to recover from and some survivors may spend the rest of their lives with a permanent disability. Depending on the severity of a crash, a cell phone car crash may result in a person suffering a traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord injury, burn injury, and/or another devastating injury.
One of the biggest concerns in a personal injury case is making sure that the claimant will receive enough compensation to cover past and future medical care in addition to lost wages. Calculating non-economic damages, such as loss of quality of life, loss of consortium, pain and suffering, and others, can seem impossible, but doing so may help an individual throughout his or her life.
