Your Financial Recovery Has a Time Limit
Filing a personal injury lawsuit when you are injured, or your property is damaged, as the result of a police chase is a time-sensitive process. According to RCW § 4.16.080, the time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party involved in your car accident is limited to only three years.
Failure to file your lawsuit within the predetermined amount of time will result in an inability to file at all. If your lawsuit is not filed in time to comply with the statute of limitations, you will not be able to hold the at-fault party responsible for the cost of treating your injuries or for your other injury-related expenses. Instead, the full financial burden of the accident will become yours.
Do not risk losing the financial compensation you deserve by running out of time to file your lawsuit. Our team can help you avoid this consequence by ensuring your claim is comprehensive, complete, and filed on time.
