There are several reasons to file a claim quickly following a car accident that you should be aware of. The after effects of a car accident can be overwhelming. There are so many things to do to make sure everything is done correctly. As a personal injury attorney, I’ve handled many car accident cases where the client wished they had filed sooner. Here are the top five reasons to file a claim quickly following a car accident.
Statue of Limitation and Tort Deadlines
There is limited time to file a lawsuit. This is intended to preserve the integrity of physical and witness evidence. In the state of Washington, statue of limitation allows a lawsuit to be filed for up to two years for a personal injury claim.
Parke Gordon offers a free consultation to personal injury victims. If you think you have a claim, call our Spokane office at (509) 482-7274. We can usually tell you over the phone if you have a good case. We do not charge by the hour and do not require you to pay a retainer. That means you pay nothing until we win your case. You can afford to hire us. Call now.
Memory is Best Right After
The longer you wait to file a claim the greater chance of memories becoming fogged. The integrity of evidence diminishes with time along with clear memories. It is always best to make a clear, concise statement directly following a car accident whenever possible. A personal injury attorney will be able to pin point important details that you may forget to include in your recollection. If you wait too long, you may not be able to answer critical questions.
Possible Larger Settlement
You may be thinking you can save money by handling the case yourself. However, doing so is only counterproductive. A personal injury attorney is able to collect greater compensation in your behalf. Consider the following real case examples Parke Gordon handled:
Case 1: Alone the client received $7,000. With Parke Gordon the client received $29,000.
Case 2: Working alone the client received $13,000. Parke Gordon received $40,000 for the client.
Case 3: On their own the client received $30,000. With the help of Parke Gordon the client received $102,000.
Case 4: The client received $10,000. Parke Gordon received $450,000 for the client.
