Recovering What You Deserve: Types of Damages in Vancouver Personal Injury Cases

There are three common types of damages in a personal injury case. Our team will collect evidence and listen carefully to your account of how you have been impacted by your injury. Taking the time to do this is how we will accurately determine which damages to pursue.

Economic Damages

Some types of harm can easily be quantified monetarily. These are known as economic damages, and they include:

  • Medical Expenses: Past, present, and future medical costs associated with your injury, like doctor visits, hospital stays, surgery, medication, physical therapy, and rehabilitation.
  • Lost Wages: Lost income, bonuses, commissions, and potential future earnings if your injury affects your long-term earning capacity.
  • Property Damage: Reimbursement for any damage to your personal property caused by the accident, such as your car.

You should not have to pay for costs you incur as a result of negligence on someone else’s part. Pursuing compensation can help ease the financial burden you face.

Non-Economic Damages

Some types of damage that result from a personal injury are less easily measured financially. You still deserve to be compensated for them. Your lawyer has experience determining fair values for non-economic damages, such as:

  • Pain and Suffering: Compensation for the physical and emotional pain you've endured as a result of your injury, including discomfort, scarring, and emotional distress.
  • Loss of Enjoyment of Life: Compensation for the inability to participate in activities you once enjoyed due to your injury.
  • Loss of Consortium: If your injury impacts your marital relationship, you may be able to recover damages for this loss of companionship and intimacy.

We know that money cannot undo the harm you experienced in your personal injury. However, receiving a settlement can give you a sense of closure and justice.

Punitive Damages

In rare cases, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the at-fault party for particularly egregious or reckless behavior that caused your injury. They also discourage people from engaging in such behavior in the future.

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Vancouver, Washington?

Getting injured can be stressful, and legal matters might be the last thing on your mind. However, it's crucial to understand the time limit for filing a personal injury lawsuit.

In most cases, the statute of limitations in Washington is three years from the date of your injury. This means you generally have three years to file a lawsuit in court to seek compensation for your damages.

This time limit is important because evidence can fade over time. Witness memories can become unreliable, and crucial details like accident scene photos or video might be lost. The longer you wait, the harder it may be to investigate your case and gather necessary evidence.

Additionally, the at-fault party's insurance company might use your delay to argue against your personal injury claim. Taking action sooner rather than later protects your rights and strengthens your case.

How Can Our Vancouver Personal Injury Lawyer Help You?

We’ll provide legal guidance, investigate the details of your case, and negotiate on your behalf with insurance companies. If necessary, we're prepared to take your case to court and advocate for you in front of a judge and jury. We'll provide comprehensive representation to fight for the best possible outcome on your behalf.

  • I was referred to Todd after a car accident. I had not sought representation for auto incidents before. I had concerns about my physical health and how my insurance company was handling it. Todd was amazing.  He had me start medical treatment, and he handled everything. I was compensated and referred family members, friends, and everyone to Todd. He's helped me and the people I care about navigate getting the best support after an accident. Todd is the best!!

  • I am so grateful for Todd’s work in navigating the insurance claims after my van was rear ended.  The medical adjusters were calling me regularly while I was in treatment, which I found very overwhelming.  Once Todd took my case, he handled all the communications between my insurance and my medical providers, which relieved me of the weight of that responsibility and gave me the space to fully heal from the accident.  He clearly explained my rights under the laws of personal injury protection, and negotiated a settlement far exceeding what I could have done on my own.  I highly recommend his services to anyone who has experienced and auto accident.

  • Todd helped me navigate the overwhelming steps of an auto accident. I was rear ended at a stop light, my car was totaled and I was taken to the ER. Post accident, it was hard to wrap my mind around anything and what needed to be done. Todd ensured that my health was priority and helped get me the treatment I needed. While I was able to focus on my rehabilitation, he took care of the insurance and dealt with the aftermath of what needed to be done. Though it was a stressful time, being able to rely on Todd to handle the claim and other legal matters was the biggest relief. He is extremely communicative, easy to reach and truly cared about my progress even when we settled. Forever thankful and would highly recommend.

  • I was in a MVA and had no clue what to do with the insurance company or how anything worked. Todd walked me through everything step by step. There were no dumb questions and he gave excellent guidance. My insurance company turned out to be a massive pain in the butt and were horrible to work with. Todd was able to step in once that fact became apparent and was able to swiftly and successfully close my case that had been dragged out for 3 extra months by the insurance company. He and his staff are very knowledgeable and straight shooters. Overall wonderful to work with and his office is my first call if I need him in the future.

  • Todd is great at what he does and an amazing resource to anyone needing legal support for auto accidents. In 2015 I was injured as a result of an auto collision, and Todd was instrumental in ensuring I received medical care. His professionalism and dedication to the case was an immense relief to me, especially as someone who never had an accident before.

FAQs

  • While we can't give legal advice without a consultation, here are some general questions to consider:

    Were you injured? This may seem obvious, but the injury doesn't have to be life-altering. Even seemingly minor injuries can qualify if they require medical attention and impact your daily life.

    Did someone else cause your injury? This could be another driver, a property owner, or a manufacturer, among others.

    Was the other party negligent? Negligence means they acted carelessly or failed to take reasonable precautions to prevent your injury. For example, a distracted driver or a property owner with a known tripping hazard could be considered negligent.

    If you can answer yes to these questions, you might have a personal injury case.
