Proven Vancouver WA Car Accident Attorneys Ready To Help You
Nearly 34,000 people died in the United States last year as a result of a motor vehicle crash.
Thousands of injuries and fatalities occur on Oregon, Washington and California roads and highways each year. Innocent people die or are seriously injured at the hands of negligent drivers who speed, ignore signs, are distracted by cell phones, or are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Insurance companies for the at-fault driver usually ask car accident victims to sign a monetary settlement – and sign it quickly. A quick settlement, or one that you are asked to sign before your injuries are fully understood, benefits the insurance company at your expense.
It is your legal right to have a lawyer review the documents presented to you by an insurance company before you sign. Finding knowledgeable and committed Vancouver WA car accident attorneys to help you through this difficult time is vital.
Oregon, Washington and California all have time limits to recover your damages from an automobile accident. Once this time has elapsed, it may be impossible to recover any of your medical bills or other expenses. Furthermore, evidence and memories lapse over time. The sooner you contact a law firm, the better the chance that a lawyer can help you.

Vancouver, WA Auto Accident FAQs
Q: What is the first thing I should do after an auto accident?
After an auto accident, your first priority should be to obtain medical treatment for your injuries. If you have not yet seen a doctor, you should do so promptly. It is also important that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible, as there are other steps you and your lawyer may need to take immediately in order to protect your claim for financial compensation.
Q: How much am I entitled to recover for my losses?
The amount you are entitled to recover depends on factors including (i) who was at fault in the accident, (ii) the extent of your injuries, and (iii) the effects your injuries will have on your life now and in the future. Most auto accident victims’ losses are far greater than they realize. During your free initial consultation, our legal team will begin gathering the information we need in order to assess the value of your claim.
