Spokane Rear-End Collision Lawyer
When you’ve been hurt by a careless driver running into you, you can seek compensation for your damages and losses. Get a full settlement by working with a Spokane rear-end collision lawyer.
Even though rear-end collisions may seem like minor accidents, they often lead to devastating injuries. In fact, many accident victims spend years in physical therapy or rehabilitation trying to recover.
If you have been rear-ended, it is important that you speak with a Spokane rear-end collision lawyer from Craig Swapp & Associates to ensure that your rights are protected and that you are compensated for your injuries.
Fault and Rear-End Accidents
After being rear-ended, the immediate assumption is that the person who hit you was responsible for the crash. In many rear-end collisions, this is true. However, there may be other factors at play, such as dangerous road conditions or the involvement of multiple vehicles in the case of a pileup.
We will go over the details of what happened and identify all negligent parties to ensure that they are named in your personal injury claim. This will increase your ability to collect financial damages.
Delayed Injuries and Rear-Enders
It is critical to pay attention to all of your symptoms and receive medical attention for them. Too many people assume that because their vehicle was not significantly damaged, they do not have severe injuries. Even if the crash did not result in significant damage, you could still experience whiplash, a concussion, and many other physical injuries.
There is a statute of limitations of three years in Washington that limits the amount of time in which you have to seek compensation. This makes it critical to get your injuries diagnosed as soon as possible so that work can begin on your claim.
Negotiations with the Insurance
People often ask why they need an attorney when they can simply work with the other party’s insurance company directly. The insurance company is concerned with their own best interests—not yours. They view your claim as an expense and will do everything they can to pay you as little as possible.
They might ask questions that could be used in court to point blame in your direction. To prevent this from happening, have all communication with the insurance company go through our office.
After we have valued your claim and gathered evidence to prove negligence, we will create a demand letter that can be used as a negotiation tool. If the insurance company is willing to respond by making a fair offer or a close counteroffer, there could be an opportunity to settle your claim outside of court. If they refuse, we can seek compensation through a jury trial.
Don’t Leave Money on the Table
We will help you get the most for your rear-end collision injuries by ensuring that you receive compensation for more than just your medical bills. For example, you could receive money for any of the following that apply to your case:
- Transportation expenses
- Cost of rehabilitation, physical therapy, and massage
- Pain and suffering
- Lost quality of life
- Lost wages and income
