It depends on the severity of your injuries and the length of treatment. Our law firm specializes in representing seriously injured accident victims; many of our clients have injuries that are permanent in nature.
A victim should never rush to settle a case as they could be underestimating its true value. Once a claim is settled, it can never be reopened again. We want our clients to be fully compensated for all damages, past and future.
Typically, we formally present our clients’ cases for settlement once they have reached a point of maximum medical improvement and we have all the needed documentation. We work hard to streamline our clients’ cases as much as possible while seeking the maximum possible recovery. In Washington State, the Statute of Limitations, which is the time you have to file a civil lawsuit, is usually three years.
