What is the statute of limitations for filing a lawsuit after my car accident?

Many people ask us, “What are the statute of limitations for filing a lawsuit after being injured in a car accident?”

In Washington State, the law sets a three year time limit from the date of a motor vehicle accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. However, there are exceptions based on the facts.

If you have been involved in a car accident and your injuries are serious, you should consult with an experienced Washington personal injury attorney to make sure your rights are protected. Even though your statute of limitations may not expire for several years, by hiring a personal injury attorney promptly, you can maximize the value of your personal injury claim and make sure you avoid mistakes like not documenting your injuries and treatment correctly and also not getting the full value of witnesses to your accident.
