Personal Injury We Help Good People in Bad Situations

Kitsap County Personal Injury Attorneys

Injured in Port Orchard, WA or a Surrounding Area?

Unfortunately, accidents are everyday occurrences. They can be frustrating, as they could cause harm that requires you to seek medical care, which may lead to hefty bills. When an accident is caused by someone else's carelessness or reckless actions, it is even more frustrating because it most likely could have been prevented if the individual was acting as they should have been.

If you or a loved one was injured in an accident caused by someone else, you might have the right to pursue a personal injury claim against them. This means that you can take legal action to hold the responsible party financially liable for injuries that resulted from their negligence or intentional acts.

After an accident, your recovery and health should be your primary focus. When you retain one of our lawyers at Glisson & Morris, we will take care of the paperwork, investigation, and legal processes involved in these types of cases. Together, we have over 45 years of experience, and we know how to fight for fair compensation.

To discuss your case in a free consultation, call the Kitsap County personal injury lawyers at our Port Orchard, WA office today at (360) 526-8191 or contact us online.

Types of Personal Injury Cases

Personal injury claims are those that arise from accidents caused by others. Whether an individual or a business harmed you, if they were liable for damages you incurred, you may be able to seek compensation for expenses and losses.

Some common types of personal injury claims include:

  • Car accidents: Motorists who were negligent while driving and collided with others could be held responsible for resulting damages.
  • Medical malpractice: This occurs when a health care professional performs below the standard level of care, and their negligence causes harm to a patient.
  • Slip & fall: A property owner could be financially liable if a visitor trips and injures themselves while on their premises.
  • Wrongful death: If a person's recklessness or intentional acts resulted in someone losing their life, surviving family members might be able to initiate a civil action.

What is the Statute of Limitations on Personal Injury Claims?

In Washington state, the statute of limitations on personal injury cases is three years. This means you have three years from the date of your injury to file your claim in court. This is why you should contact an experienced personal injury attorney at Glisson & Morris right away to get started on your case.

What Happens in a Personal Injury Case?

When you take legal action against a person or business that caused you harm, the burden rests on you to prove that they were liable for the accident and that you suffered damages as a result. This requires collecting and presenting evidence, keeping track of medical expenses, noting other losses you suffered, and more.

The process can be time-consuming and complex, as there are many laws to follow and you may have to negotiate with an insurance company or even present your case in court.
