Injury Lawyers Serving Accident Victims and Families in Issaquah, WA
If you have been injured or suffered the tragedy of losing a loved one in an accident, it can be difficult to know where to turn. You know you need help, but who can you trust? The insurance adjusters seem friendly enough, but are they really on your side?
As someone who has been seriously injured or lost a family member, you could be entitled to significant financial compensation. In many circumstances, Washington law entitles victims and their families to recover their losses from the parties that are responsible. While this often means an insurance settlement, the insurance companies put their interests first – which means they want you to recover as little as possible.

Answers to Personal Injury & Wrongful Death FAQs
Q: How long do I have to file a personal injury or wrongful death claim in Washington?
In most cases, the “statute of limitations” for a personal injury or wrongful death claim in Washington is three years from the date of the accident. However, (i) there are exceptions, and (ii) there are several reasons why you do not want to wait any longer than necessary to get started on your claim for compensation. As a result, if you have been injured or lost a loved one, we encourage you to schedule your free consultation right away.
Q: What types of injuries can lead to claims for compensation?
All types of injuries can lead to claims for compensation. The question is not so much, “What type of injury did you suffer?” but rather, “What was the cause of your injury?” At Brett McCandlis Brown, PLLC, we regularly represent clients in cases involving:
- Back and Spine Injuries
- Burn Injuries
- Fracture Injuries
- Head and Brain Injuries
- Internal Injuries
- Neck Injuries
- Wrongful Death
Q: What if I (or my loved one) was partially at-fault in the accident?
Under Washington law, individuals who are partially at-fault for their own injuries can still seek partial compensation for their losses. So, for example, even if you were 90 percent at-fault, you could still recover 10 percent of your losses.
But, more importantly, you should never assume that you were at-fault in an accident. The law is complicated, and you do not want to start making any decisions about your claim until you speak with a qualified attorney.
Q: How much financial compensation can I expect to recover?
This is a question that we cannot answer until we know the full details of your case. Each case is unique, and numerous factors will affect the amount of compensation available for your claim. However, in general terms, the types of compensation that may be available include:
- Medical expenses (current and future)
- Lost wages
- Lost future earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Loss of consortium, companionship, support, and enjoyment of life
- Funeral expenses
- Other losses
