Most injury cases are settled through negotiations. However, if all reasonable efforts to resolve your case are unsuccessful, a law suit may be the best alternative. In Washington State, most injury victims generally have three years from the date of the accident to settle a claim or file a lawsuit. A lawsuit begins when an attorney prepares legal documents called Summons and Complaint and has them filed with the court and served on the responsible party. However, just because a lawsuit is filed, this does not mean your case will go to trial. Many cases are settled while the lawsuit process is pending.
