There is never any way to prepare for an accident. In a few short seconds, your life can be forever changed. It can be a frightening and vulnerable time, especially if you have been seriously injured. At Northwest Law Group, we understand.
After an accident, you need a skilled and dedicated legal advocate on your side to help you recover, both physically and financially.How Can a Bellevue Injury Attorney Help?
The repercussions of your injuries can follow you for a long time and sometimes for the rest of your life. After an accident, you may be faced with mounting medical costs, lost time from work, property damages, and even life-altering, long-term consequences. In the state of Washington, you can hold the party responsible for the accident and your injuries financially accountable.

Your accident is not only emotionally costly but it is financially costly, not only in the short-term but also in the long-term. Having a Bellevue personal injury lawyer on your side ensures your legal right to be compensated for things such as:
- Medical costs such as emergency services, hospitalization, surgery, doctor visits, medications, costs for any medical devices, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and any other medical interventions required by your injury
- Future medical costs if your injuries have long-term implications that may require future surgeries or specialized care
- Lost wages due to the time you’ve been away from work
- Future lost earning capacity if you are unable to go back to your career and your earning capability suffers for it
- Property damages such as car damage or damage to personal property in the accident
- Pain and suffering, such as mental anguish and disability
The costs of these injuries can be extensive and can often take months or even years to resolve. When your injuries were caused by the negligence of another, you are entitled to compensation from that party, even if you are partially at fault.Who is At Fault?
In Washington State, we follow pure comparative negligence guidelines with regard to compensation. This means that you are entitled to compensation from a negligent party to the degree that he or she was at fault for the accident. This may sound simple, but fault and negligence can be difficult to prove, particularly when insurance companies are trying not to pay an accident claim. At Northwest Law Group, our Bellevue accident attorneys have the experience and skill to establish the at-fault party’s negligence to support your injury claim.
Negotiation with insurance companies is our first source of compensation. Unfortunately, the initial settlements offered by insurance companies are frequently grossly insufficient to cover all your losses after an accident. The settlement you get should be the one you legally deserve, not the one that the insurance company wants to pay.How Our Team of Injury Lawyers Represent You
