What Should I Expect at the Beginning of My Injury Case?
After initial investigation on your case, the focus is on your recovery and obtaining first party benefits if applicable (PIP insurance for medical expenses and wage loss; health insurance). After your medical condition has stabilized your case can be fully evaluated and prepared for settlement discussions, and if not successful, then on to litigation.
If your case is recommended for litigation, you will be provided an outline of what to expect. In general, from the time of filing of the lawsuit until the trial date in Snohomish County is 12 to 16 months. In King County it is approximately 12 months. Cases valued at less than $50,000.00, qualify for Mandatory Arbitration and can often be resolved within 6 months of filing.
