Failure to yield the right of way can cause dangerous car accidents that result in serious injuries. Insurance Information Institute (III) research cited failure to yield the right of way as the fourth leading cause of car accidents in 2018, with drivers who failed to yield causing 3,579 accidents. Were you or someone you love injured in a car accident because another driver failed to yield? If so, you have the basis of a personal injury insurance claim or lawsuit.
A personal injury claim holds the at-fault driver financially responsible for their negligent, reckless, or careless actions. Your personal injury claim must prove:
- The at-fault driver owed you a duty of care
- The at-fault driver breached that duty
- The accident caused your injuries
- Your injuries have a financial consequence

Negotiate Your Financial Settlement in a Timely Fashion
You may already know that a statute of limitations is the amount of time your state allows to file a civil lawsuit. When you or a family member are injured in a car accident in Tacoma, you are governed by the statute of limitations in Washington.
According to Revised Code of Washington (RCW) § 4.16.080, you generally have three years from the date the accident occurs to file your personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault driver. Failing to comply with the state’s time line means:
- You will not be able to file your lawsuit at all if the allotted time expires
- The at-fault driver will not be held financially responsible for the accident
- You will bear the full financial burden of an accident that was not your fault
Do not let time run out on your right or ability to collect the financial compensation you are due. While you focus on your physical recovery, or on helping an injured passenger or loved one through their physical recovery, our team focuses on building, proving, and accurately assessing the monetary value of your claim for financial recovery.

Make Sure No Accident-Related Cost Is Overlooked
On your own, creating a detailed list of your accident-related expenses can be complicated. It can be easy to overlook or ignore the plethora of expenses and losses you are entitled to. According to RCW § 4.56.250, you can collect financial recovery for:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Current and future lost wages or income
- Funeral and burial expenses for a fatality
- Property repair or replacement costs
- Necessary in-home domestic services
- Pain, suffering, and inconvenience
- Mental anguish and emotional distress
You do not have to value your claim or fight for financial recovery on your own. Your lawyer can help you assign a monetary value to intangible portions of your claim like pain and suffering and mental anguish. Your lawyer can also help you accurately calculate the value of future expenses and losses including medical care and lost income.
Do not risk having your claim miscalculated, accepting a settlement offer that is too small, or being left with expenses for a failure to yield accident that was not your fault. Our team members can accurately value your claim and fight for the full compensation you deserve.
