The discovery process in a car accident case can be confusing

People who have been injured in a car accident in Seattle are likely well aware that they may have a right to be compensated if another person was negligent in causing the crash that led to the injury. To do so, however, the injured party will have to go through the process of filing a civil lawsuit in the proper state court. This means dealing with the multiple requirements and procedures that come with utilizing the legal system. Previous posts here have mentioned some of the elements of negligence that will need to be proven during the case, but there are other facets of a legal proceeding before one even gets to the trial phase.

What is a "duty to mitigate" in motorcycle accidents?

A previous post here discussed the legal concept of "subrogation" and how it can affect claims arising from personal injury, such as might occur in a Washington motorcycle accident. While it can be a complicated idea, subrogation is not the only legal doctrine that can make a difference in the amount a victim is awarded after being injured by another party's negligence. Another of these complicating factors is called "mitigation."

What are Interrogatories?

During discovery, one tool available to all attorneys is interrogatories. Interrogatories are written questions that must be answered under oath.

What are "economic damages" in a fatal accident in Washington?

Previous posts here have discussed some of the major elements of claims arising out of car accidents. These tend to be personal injury claims for which the victim requests compensation for various consequences of the crash. The most serious injury claim of all is, of course, wrongful death. When someone dies as the result of another party's negligence, the family would be the ones who may be entitled to compensation. But, what kinds of damages are recoverable in such instances?

Washington man killed when he was run over on I-90

There is an old saying that "no good deed goes unpunished." In this rather cynical view, going out of one's way to help someone else is just asking for trouble. While likely not completely true, as with most old adages, one can often find isolated examples that support the principle. Unfortunately for a would-be "good Samaritan" on Interstate 90 in Washington, this old saying turned out to be all too accurate.
