Financial Compensation for the Injured in Centralia, Washington
The sheer quantity of preventable injury in this country is overwhelming. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) report that 31 million Americans fall victim to a personal injury every year – and that’s only including the accidents serious enough to require medical attention.
The U.S. Department of Justice breaks those numbers down by accident type, and the statistics are startling:
- 52 percent of U.S. personal injuries happen in auto accidents.
- 15 percent of U.S. personal injuries are the result of medical malpractice.
- 5 percent of U.S. personal injuries involve a defective product of some kind.
In every single case, there is a common factor: The injury could have been avoided if the defendant had simply been more careful.
Negligence may not be intentional, but it can be absolutely devastating. Not only are victims left in a world of pain and psychological trauma, but they’re also expected to deal with hefty bills and complex red tape.
Even more modest injuries can invite tremendous hassle into the lives of victims and their families. That simply isn’t fair.

How Much Can You Recover in a Lawsuit?
It’s a common question, but there is no one-size-fits all answer. The compensation available to you depends entirely on the facts of your situation. As a general rule, though, the victims of negligence frequently underestimate the value of their suffering.
Studies show that plaintiffs who are represented by an experienced personal injury attorney recover more than those who go it alone. As Centralia personal injury lawyers, it is our job to examine your case closely, identify every possible source of compensation, and do what we can to maximize the value of your claim.
Typically, plaintiffs are entitled to recover the following:
- Medical expenses (e.g., doctor’s bills, surgical procedures, medical equipment)
- Hospital expenses (e.g., ambulances, ER)
- Pharmaceutical expenses
- Physical therapy, rehabilitation, psychological care, etc.
- Lost income (when the injury keeps you away from work or prevents you from resuming your career in the future)
- Damage to your property (e.g., real estate, personal property, vehicles)
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of love and support (in wrongful death cases)
- Other losses caused by the defendant’s negligence
