Question: How long do I have to file a car accident claim?

Answer:

If you’re watching this video, you may be wondering, “How long do I have to bring a car crash claim in Washington?” Here’s a couple of things that you should know. First is that the statute of limitations in Washington is three years. That means that you need to either settle your case, or file a lawsuit before that three-year deadline. The second thing to keep in mind is that, if your case involves a governmental entity, you may have less time, so you want to get on that sooner rather than later.Car Accident Statute of LimitationsThe third and most important thing to keep in mind is not to wait until the last minute. We need to work on cases while they are still fresh. If you’re going to hire an attorney, you should do that sooner rather than later, while witness recollection is still fresh, and while evidence is still easy to track down. The longer you wait, the more difficult it is for an attorney to assist you with your case, because it is harder to track down evidence.
