Lawyers Unmoved by Insurance Company Strategies
The dust barely comes to rest after an automobile accident before insurance companies and defense attorneys start making settlement offers to accident victims. While insurance companies and their attorneys know you are entitled to compensation for your injury, and have an idea how much your claim is worth, they rarely offer you the full and fair amount of recovery you deserve. Many accident victims fall for these settlement tactics, but our experienced attorneys do not. We know the techniques insurance companies and defense attorneys use to undervalue your claim. Our lawyers will make sure you do not settle for less than you deserve.

Questions Often Asked After an Accident.
It is not uncommon to not know what to do in an accident when you or a loved one is seriously injured or killed. The best thing to do is consult with an experienced accident lawyer. For those concerns that cannot wait until your consultation, we have provided a list below of some of our most frequently asked questions:
• Can I recover for my injury? Whether you can recover for your injury depends heavily on the facts and circumstances of your case. For victims of motor vehicle accidents, it is a good idea to consult with an experienced accident attorney even if your injury seems minor. Some victims are unsure whether their immigrant status affects their right to recovery, a point discussed in our FAQs for immigrants. An attorney can better evaluate your potential for recovery after speaking with you personally.
• How soon after my injury should I consult a lawyer? It is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible after sustaining an injury. Injury claims are governed by what is called a “Statute of Limitations.” This limits the time in which an accident victim can sue for his or her injury. It is a good idea to consult an attorney right away to learn how the Statute of Limitations affects your injury claim.
• Will an attorney take my case? Before an attorney will agree to take a case, the attorney will want to learn about the automobile accident, and the nature and extent of your injury. The attorney’s decision will be based in large part on that conversation. Whether your injury is “minor” or “severe” is only one of several considerations involved in the decision. At Mark A. Hammer & Associates, Inc. we consider the free initial consultations a great way to learn more about your case.
• What is comparative negligence? Washington follows what is called pure comparative negligence. This means that recovery for an injury can be reduced by an amount in proportion to a plaintiff’s relative fault in causing the accident in which the plaintiff was injured. To illustrate, if a plaintiff is awarded $20,000 by a jury for an injury, but the jury finds the plaintiff is 50% at fault for causing the accident, the plaintiff will only recover half of the jury award, or $10,000.
