What is "comparative negligence" in a Seattle car wreck?

Previous posts here have discussed the basics of negligence and the elements that are usually necessary to prove in order to recover from a liable party in a personal injury lawsuit resulting from a car accident. Our readers may remember that the final element in this list is usually that of damages. That is, the plaintiff must be able to show what injuries were caused by the defendant's negligence, and that te plaintiff has suffered some loss due to the injuries. If the remainder of the case is proved, the amount of damages just needs to be calculated and the verdict rendered.

How do you begin a lawsuit in a Seattle motorcycle accident?

Previous posts here have discussed some of the basics of the law with regard to people who have been injured in motorcycle accidents in the greater Seattle area. Previous posts have touched on the theory of negligence, and the elements that are usually required to create a case that an individual's injuries were caused by someone else's carelessness.

Are "non-economic damages" capped in a fatal accident?

A previous post here discussed the difference between "economic" and "non-economic" damages in relation to civil actions for personal injury and wrongful death. Our readers in Seattle might remember that economic damages refer to relatively objectively quantifiable injury, such as recovery for medical costs associated with an accident, or actual lost wages due to inability to work as a result of the injury. Non-economic damages, on the other hand, refer to more subjective claims, such as compensation for pain and suffering, or loss of companionship or consortium.

Seattle can be dangerous for older pedestrians

Seattle is an amazing city in many ways. It has major sports franchises, beautiful scenery, waterfronts and outdoor activities within a close proximity, and is known for its environmental consciousness. One way that many of the city's residents demonstrate this dedication to ecological health is by walking to their destinations instead of driving vehicles with internal combustion engines which burn fossil fuels whose by-products contribute to air pollution and climate change. Sometimes, this dedication comes at a price, however, because while many people walk, there are still a great number of vehicles on the roads that can pose a threat to pedestrians.

What is a "notice of claim" in a Seattle bus accident?

The legal term "exhaustion of administrative remedies" is often used when dealing with claims that may arise against governmental entities. While this can have many varied meanings, in general it means that some process or another has been set out by law or regulation by which a person who feels he or she has been wronged by an entity or a government employee may be able to ask for redress of whatever grievance he or she may have. It is often the case that the law requires that this process be completed before any plaintiff may file a civil claim against the government in a court of competent jurisdiction.
