Choose Benton Accident & Injury Lawyers to Handle Your Personal Injury Case

Unfortunately, injuries are a common fact of life. From vehicle accidents to workplace accidents, pharmaceutical drug injuries, all the way to wrongful deaths, modern life gives us plenty to negotiate every day.

Often, people are injured because of circumstances that are entirely out of their control. Some of the time, these accidents occur even if no one directly caused them, such as when a storm caused damage to someone’s home or car.

In other cases, however, the way a person acted or failed to act may have caused an accident to happen, such as when a homeowner failed to repair their damaged porch, or a driver caused an accident while texting.

In these situations, another person’s reckless or negligent behavior directly caused an accident, which may result in an injury or monetary loss to you or your loved ones. You should not be forced to pay for the consequences of another person’s actions, especially when you had no part in the resulting accident.

When these types of accidents occur, sometimes they cause significant injuries. This is when you need an experienced Seattle personal injury lawyer on your side to help you fight back.

The personal injury lawyers at Benton Accident & Injury Lawyers have centered their legal careers around helping the victims of another person’s negligence receive justice. The injuries you face after a serious accident may have life-altering effects, including pain and suffering, exorbitant medical bills, and even loss of income if you are unable to return to work.

We understand the frustration and anger you must be feeling after this accident, and we will work with you so that you can begin healing.

Whether you want to understand your rights after an accident, or you have decided to pursue a lawsuit, our legal team is prepared to help you understand the best steps to take moving forward.

“I would recommend Benton Law Firm to everyone I know. Everyone in the Benton Law office is very kind and professional! My attorney was Leon Kassab. He was very knowledgeable and precise with my case. He eased my mind and made the transition of a 3 year long case, run smoothly. Their office kept me informed of all the hearings and they were very sympathic to all of my injuries and the outcome of my medical treatment. Thank you Benton Law Firm for representing me. Great Job, Benton Law Firm!”


“Jeff Benton changed my life-long fear and mistrust for lawyers. Even though lawyers are a totem of American life, I had avoided them out of fear and mistrust. But my husband was seriously injured in a car accident two years ago and I didn’t know which way to turn. A friend recommended giving Jeff Benton a call. I sounded desperate over the phone; but he responded to my anxiety by making a house call. Sitting at my dining room table, he listened with patience, then helped me work through my options. Being sharp, knowledgeable and effective, Jeff Benton was able to settle my case and the hospital bills within record time. I am grateful for this attorney’s caring professionalism and would recommend him to anyone facing a personal injury crisis.”

Mr. Benton represented me in a personal injury lawsuit that happened while I was traveling from NJ (my hometown) to Dallas. This was my first (and hopefully only) experience filing a lawsuit and I was unfamiliar with the entire process and didn’t know what to expect. Mr. Benton was very professional, but genuinely empathetic, competent and most importantly, honest. He did not set false expectations and he was very patient, taking care to explain every step of the process to me so I was able to make informed decisions. I must say it was positively refreshing being able to trust him completely handling my case – especially since he was 2,000 miles away!”

Statute of Limitations in Personal Injury

In Washington, the statute of limitations on personal injury cases allows a three-year timeframe to file a lawsuit. That means you have three years from the accident date to initiate your lawsuit against the at-fault party.

Steps You Should Take After an Accident

Taking immediate action is crucial if someone else is at fault for your injuries in an accident. You should seek medical attention after leaving the scene. A doctor can examine you to diagnose your injury and determine whether you need follow-up care. If they recommend additional treatment, listen to their instructions.

You should continue treating your injury regularly until you heal or your medical providers place you at maximum medical improvement (MMI). MMI means you have recovered as much as possible, and further treatment likely won't improve your condition. Attending every doctor’s appointment is critical. Gaps in treatment can negatively affect your case. The insurance company might look at those gaps as evidence of a minor injury and offer a low settlement or deny your claim.

You should take notes about the accident and maintain records. Write a detailed description of how the incident occurred while it’s fresh in your mind. You can keep a journal of your symptoms to demonstrate their impact on your daily routine. Mention whether your symptoms worsen during specific activities.

Keep a copy of every document associated with your case. Hold onto your written prescriptions, billing statements, physician notes, hospital records, diagnostic test results, and other records. The more evidence you have to prove your injury and the treatment you require, the better your chance of securing maximum compensation.

Hiring a Seattle personal injury lawyer from Benton Accident & Injury Lawyers is also beneficial. We can handle every aspect of your case, including filing an insurance claim, obtaining the available evidence, and negotiating a settlement. Our trial attorneys are prepared to file a lawsuit if necessary and fight for you in court. You should not take on the responsibility yourself. Let us take over so you can focus on your treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

At Benton Accident & Injury Lawyers, we understand how overwhelming it can be to pursue a personal injury case after an accident. We have answered the questions we hear most frequently from our clients to help you prepare for the legal road ahead.

What should I do if the insurance company calls me?

The insurance company will likely reach out to you to discuss the details of your claim. Your best option is to keep the conversation brief. You’re not legally obligated to speak to the at-fault party’s insurer and provide the information they request. If they try to pull information from you, inform them that you hired a lawyer and give them our phone number. We can speak with them about your case.

Am I entitled to compensation if I’m partially at fault for the accident?

Yes. You could recover compensation in a personal injury lawsuit even if your actions contributed to the accident. Pure comparative negligence does not bar a financial recovery.

Instead, it allows the jury to reduce the plaintiff’s compensation by their percentage of shared fault.

For example, if you have $100,000 in losses but the jury determines you are 20 percent liable for your injury, the maximum monetary award you can receive is $80,000.

When should I hire a personal injury attorney?

You should hire a lawyer shortly after an accident. Holding someone financially liable for their actions is challenging. You need an experienced legal team to start investigating before valuable evidence goes missing or gets damaged. Trying to seek compensation without representation can result in an unfavorable outcome. When you hire a lawyer, they can handle the legal process for you.
