In Washington, negligence claims have to be filed within three years. This three-year limit is called the statute of limitation.
If there is a delay between the accident and when you file for a claim, that can make this process more difficult. If you have suffered an injury, it’s important to file a claim as soon as possible.
When an accident takes place, it’s absolutely critical that it’s investigated promptly, before witnesses go missing, evidence disappears, or the nature of the accident scene changes.
