Being injured due to someone else’s negligence is an experience we all wish to avoid. Unfortunately, because we can’t control the actions and choices of others, virtually anyone could be harmed due to another party’s carelessness at some point.

Has this happened to you in or around Snohomish County, Washington? Consider reviewing your case with a personal injury attorney serving our area if so.

When the negligence of another party injures someone, they can file a claim with the negligent party’s insurance seeking compensation for such losses as:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages and lost earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering and other such non-economic damages

In cases where the negligent party is uninsured or their insurance company won’t budge, filing a lawsuit to seek damages via the court system is also an option.

Regardless, receiving the compensation for which you may be eligible can be complex. Hiring a lawyer to represent you can improve your odds of arriving at a fair settlement or being awarded damages in court. It will also allow you to focus on your recovery while an experienced legal professional handles your case.

You don’t have to hire a lawyer before having a chance to discuss your case with them. Working with a personal injury attorney in Snohomish County should begin with an initial, no-obligation consultation.

To ensure this meeting is productive and valuable for you and a lawyer, prepare ahead of time by:

  • Drafting a narrative of your accident: During your case evaluation with a lawyer, you’ll spend much of your time describing the circumstances of your accident. It’s essential not to leave out any relevant details when doing so. Guard against this by writing a thorough accident narrative before your consultation. Having this on hand will help you avoid forgetting anything during your discussion.
  • Bring evidence and witness contact information: You might have collected the names and contact information of witnesses at the scene of your accident. Bring this with you to your consultation if so. Additionally, if you have any other evidence to share with an attorney, such as pictures or footage of the accident, bring it.
  • Bring medical bills: Your medical bills aren’t necessarily the only losses for which you may seek compensation after being harmed in a Snohomish County accident. However, they can give a lawyer a basic sense of what your claim’s value might be.
  • Bring a list of questions: You don’t want to squander this opportunity to ask questions of a lawyer. Prepare a list of questions to ask accordingly.

Your goal is to ensure an attorney gets a clear sense of whether you have a valid reason to take legal action against a negligent party.
