The damage an injury can do may leave you struggling for years. To get the help you need to move on, call a Shoreline injury lawyer.

An accident can happen at any time. Someone was driving distracted. Someone spilled water in a store. A stair had a broken board. Unfortunately, any of these could leave you seriously injured and struggling with growing expenses. When those injuries are the fault of another person, the situation is even more painful. A careless person left you dealing with the aftermath of his or her negligence.

If you’re struggling with your injuries, a Shoreline personal injury lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates can help. Recovering fair and full compensation is important, and we’ll make sure your injury claim has the best possible chance of success.

Types of Personal Injury Claims

Personal injury claims in Shoreline can cover a wide variety of case types. After all, the general requirement for such a case is that one party was injured by another’s careless or intentionally harmful actions. Even so, every case is unique, so we’ll need to know your case type to get started.

Not sure what you need to know for your case? See the list below for information on a few case types:

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents – When someone is distracted or reckless behind the wheel, you may be left dealing with life-threatening injuries. Determining fault will help you deal with insurance companies in these accidents, which include those involving cars, motorcycles, and trucks.
  • Defective Products – We trust the products we buy to be safe, but that trust sometimes doesn’t get us very far. You may need help proving the manufacturer or seller is responsible for your injuries.
  • Premises Liability – When you’re on another person’s property, the property owner is liable for your safety and must warn you about or remove safety hazards. When property owners don’t act, you could be seriously injured.

Compensation for an Injury in Shoreline

Once you’ve determined the laws and direction your case will need to take, you and your personal injury lawyer in Shoreline will also need to consider the damages you’ll seek compensation for. After all, your injuries might be serious, which means you’ll deal with pain, expenses, and trauma because of your accident.

Economic damages should cover the expenses you’ve incurred because of your accident. These are typically all the financial costs you’ve had to handle because of your accident: property damage, medical expenses, repairs, and lost wages.

Non-economic damages are harder to calculate, and you’ll need to make sure they don’t exceed the limit set in Washington. These are the more subjective damages you’ve suffered. Your pain and suffering, mental trauma, and loss of enjoyment of life can impact you greatly, so be sure to contact a lawyer who can calculate what these are truly worth.
