One Accident Can Change Your Life The Consequences of a Catastrophic Injury

car accident attorneys

Auto accidents are extremely traumatic experiences that can affect you and your family forever. Following an auto accident, you might be left with a haunting memory of the event that prevents you from ever feeling safe in a vehicle, or you might be left with a serious injury that prevents you from going back to work or participating in the activities you once loved.

Car accident lawyers Elizabeth Quick and Matthew Quick have been practicing personal injury law since 2008. They understand how an auto accident can affect you and your family. That's why they work with trusted experts to hold negligent drivers accountable and help injured clients recover the compensation they deserve.

"Matt Quick Took Care of Everything."

"My wife had PTSD after a really bad crash. She hated dealing with anything related to her crash because it added onto her anxiety. Another attorney she had spoken to said she would have to do this or that, thus leading to more anxiety, whereas Matt Quick took care of everything, thus putting her at ease."

Matt & Liz Quick are a brilliant team. Their staff is also very friendly, professional, and prompt. I called the Quick Law Group on the suggestion of a friend after I couldn't get anywhere with the insurance company of the man that rear-ended me. I was still suffering years after the accident - I wouldn't settle and out of desperation decided to find an attorney. I am so glad I chose Quick Law Group. Matt and Liz walked me through everything. Answered all of my questions, and I felt such confidence in them after just the consultation. I would recommend them to anyone needing great representation in your pursuit of a fair bodily injury settlement.

Liz Quick is a brilliant trial attorney. I was the plaintiff in my case and I remember sitting in that courtroom thinking “She is incredible!” She operated with such ease and such confidence in what she was doing that I just couldn’t be anything less than in total awe of her. She also was amazingly pleasant to just be around. When you are feeling as vulnerable as I felt during during the trial, having someone on your side like Liz meant so much.

After a Car Accident, You Have Two Options:

If you sustain injuries or property damage during an auto accident, there are two ways that our attorneys can help you recover compensation.

Filing an Insurance Claim

Our injury attorneys will begin by filing a claim with the other driver's insurance company. Because insurance companies often try to settle car accident cases quickly, they might offer a lower amount than what you deserve. Our car accident lawyers will negotiate on your behalf to achieve a fair settlement.

Filing a Lawsuit

If the insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement, our injury lawyers will help you file a lawsuit so that you can recover the compensation you truly deserve. As our client, you can depend on us to pursue nothing less than the restitution you are owed, even when that means going to court.

My husband and I worked with Matt after his motor vehicle accident. He was patient with my husband as he grappled to understand his injuries as well as the legal system without previous accidents and with Spanish as his primary language. Medical bills and a long term plan were initially overwhelming but taking it one step at a time and checking in regularly allowed for a helpful and safe outcome in every way.

Washington's Liability and Insurance Laws

Comparative Fault

Washington is a comparative fault state, meaning that if a person is partially at fault for an accident, their compensation will be reduced by the amount they are at fault. For example, if a person is determined to be 20 percent at fault for the accident and is also determined to have suffered $10,000 in losses, their compensation will be reduced to $8,000.

No Damage Caps

Some states limit the compensation you can receive from a settlement or jury award for an injury claim. However, Washington does not have any caps on the compensation you can receive.

Frequently Asked Questions about Car Accidents

Is it worth hiring an attorney after a car accident even if I don't think I'm seriously hurt?

Yes. Injuries often seem minor after an accident, but can have serious effects that are not immediately apparent. Car accident attorneys work with medical experts to diagnose your injuries and predict how they will affect you for the rest of your life. With the help of an injury lawyer, you can recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and any pain and suffering caused by the collision.

Can I get a settlement for a car accident without a lawyer?

You can receive a settlement from an insurance company, but there are some downsides to settling a case without a lawyer. Insurance companies often try to settle cases quickly and for the lowest amount possible. But car accident lawyers Liz Quick and Matt Quick will fight to recover an amount that truly covers the losses caused by the accident. The fact is that you might not even know the true extent of your losses - our attorneys can make that determination and go to work pursuing justice.

What is a reasonable settlement for a car accident?

A reasonable settlement is one that accounts for the full extent of the physical injuries, property damage, and other losses caused by your accident. It should include past and future medical bills, lost wages, and emotional losses.

How much do lawyers charge for accident claims?

There are zero up-front costs when you hire a car accident lawyer with our firm. Our attorneys work on a contingency basis, meaning they do not get paid until (and unless) they are able to recover a settlement or verdict on your behalf.

How long does it take to collect?

Every car accident case is different, so the length of time it takes to reach a settlement or verdict varies. Our law firm tries to recover the highest possible compensation in the least amount of time, but we are willing to work with you as long as it takes to recover what you truly deserve. If necessary, we will take the case to trial.

Why might my case take a long time?

While insurance companies are more interested in settling your case as quickly as possible, our car accident lawyers are dedicated to recovering the amount of compensation you need in order to restore the life you had before your accident, or achieve the closest restoration possible. Again, since your attorney collects no fees unless they win your case or achieve a settlement, they have every incentive to fight for maximum compensation.

When should I contact a lawyer after a car accident?

We recommend that you contact a lawyer immediately after your accident. A personal injury lawyer can guide you in the right direction and ensure that you take all of the right steps to ensure a positive outcome to your case.
