If you’re like me, you can’t even remember where you buried a rawhide bone yesterday. Trust me, you don’t want to wait around and let the accident details get fuzzy. But if you really must know, Washington State usually allows three years from the date of the accident to file your claim. That said, it could be less time in some cases — for example, if the defendant is a tribal entity or a federal agency.
Don’t worry. Our team has your back. Most of our auto accident injury cases are handled on a contingent fee basis. What does that mean for you? It’s simple. Your attorney fees get deducted from any proceeds that you receive when we wrap up your case.
Often, insurance companies will request a recorded statement from you about the accident. If it’s your insurance company that is asking for a recorded statement, the fine print of your policy may require you to go along with a recording. However, if the insurance company of the at-fault driver requests a recorded statement, you have no legal obligation to cooperate with them. We would advise against providing such statements before speaking to a Tacoma car accident attorney.
