Given the time limits involved in filing legal action, we strongly recommend that anyone with a potential case reach out to our team sooner rather than later.

What Damages Can Personal Injury Victims Recover?

Washington law provides mechanisms for personal injury victims to recover various types of losses and does not impose a statutory cap on any damages. While case value is always unique, victims may be able to recover compensation for:

Economic damages, which cover monetary losses directly related to the injury. These are tangible and often have specific dollar amounts tied to them.

  • Medical Expenses: These encompass emergency care, hospitalization, surgery costs, medication, rehabilitation, and ongoing medical treatments due to the injury.
  • Lost Wages: If the injury forces you out of work, you can recover lost income for the period you're unable to perform your job.
  • Loss of Earning Capacity: When injuries impair your ability to earn in the same capacity as before the accident, compensation for this long-term financial loss may be granted.
  • Property Damage: If your personal property was damaged as part of the incident, the costs to repair or replace the property are recoverable.

Non-Economic damages compensate for the non-monetary aspects of harm suffered and include losses related to:

  • Pain and Suffering: This accounts for the physical pain and emotional distress you experienced due to the injury.
  • Mental Anguish: Compensation may be available for psychological impacts such as anxiety, depression, and loss of enjoyment of life.
  • Disfigurement and Permanent Disability: In cases of severe injuries leading to scarring or permanent disabilities, victims can seek damages for these life-altering conditions.
