What happens if the other driver doesn't have insurance?

How are bicycle accidents different?

If you have been involved in a bicycle accident, you need a personal injury attorney who has experience to deal with the serious injuries that often result from a bike accident, who understands the unique laws applying to bicycle claims, and who can effectively deal with the anti-biking prejudice found in the non-biking community. Don't trust your bike accident case to an inexperienced lawyer. See more at

What happens when a child is injured?

When a child is injured, disabled, or killed in a car, bike, swimming, gun, or other type of accident, you have three years from the child's 18th birthday to file a claim. However, it is best to build the claim quickly to avoid lost evidence, lost witnesses, and forgotten case details. And don't let insurance adjusters deny or undervalue your child's claim.

What happens when more than one person is responsible for an accident?

When more than one person is responsible for an auto accident, the jury at trial will allocate fault among all of the at-fault parties. Because of the joint and several liability law in Washington State, if one at-fault party doesn't have enough insurance coverage to pay their part of your damages, the other at-fault party will be required to use their insurance coverage to cover the rest of your damages. Your personal injury attorney needs to establish that you are not at fault to maximize your recovery. See more at

What money damages are available in a personal injury claim?

The six types of money damages available in a personal injury case are property damage, medical expenses, future medical expenses, lost earnings to date, future lost earnings, and general damages. A good personal injury lawyer will show an insurance adjuster or a jury how your personal injury has affected your life in these areas, and will maximize your claim settlement. See more at
