Personal Injury Lawyer

Personal Injury Lawyer in Kent, WA

Personal injury law provides the legal framework for imposing civil liability for bodily harm wrongfully inflicted on someone by another party. That’s the legal definition, but what does that mean for you? 

It means that if you have been injured due to another party’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for the losses you have suffered.  Let a  personal injury lawyer fight to get you the maximum compensation possible.

When Should I Hire a Personal Injury Attorney

Since you are reading this, the answer is likely NOW!  It’s always best to call a personal injury attorney sooner rather than later, preferably as soon as possible after being injured.

Once hired, a personal injury lawyer cuts off all communication between you and the insurance adjuster to ensure that nothing you say can be used against you.  Insurance companies often pressure claimants into a quick settlement to avoid paying what you deserve. 

It’s also vital that you hire a personal injury attorney early so that we can investigate the incident, establish liability and preserve evidence.  Hiring an attorney as soon as possible will ensure that your legal rights are protected from the beginning and that we can fight for the compensation that you are entitled to and deserve.

Areas of Law

Ayan Law Office is a boutique law firm dedicated to Personal Injury Law.

In other words, we fight for the rights of injured individuals, and we have been doing it for the last 30 years. There are many areas of law within Personal Injury including the following types of cases we handle.  If you have been injured in any of the following ways, contact us to put our years of experience to work for you. 

How to File a Personal Injury Claim in Washington


The easiest answer is to call a personal injury lawyer for a free consultation to evaluate your claim. To successfully bring a personal injury claim, an injured individual must prove the following elements of negligence:


In order to prove this element, you must show that the at-fault party owed  you a legal duty under the circumstances. The duty varies depending on the type of injury case.


After proving that the at-fault party owed you a duty, you must then show that the party’s actions or failure to act constituted a breach of that duty.


This means that you must also show that the at-fault party’s breach caused your accident and the resulting injuries.


The final element of negligence is harm. In order to prove this element, you must be able to show damages. Damages typically include economic (such as medical bills and wage loss) and non-economic (such as pain and suffering). Regardless of the type or extent of damages, the only remedy the law allows is a monetary award.

The personal injury attorneys at Ayan Law Office have the experience and resources to prove your case and get you the monetary award you deserve.

While we are the first to admit that not every claim requires legal representation, it is always in your best interests to at least contact a personal injury attorney to initially evaluate your case.  Keep in mind that insurance companies have attorneys working for them whose sole job is to devalue your claim.

Our initial consultations are free so you have nothing to lose. 

The process of pursuing your personal injury claim begins at the time of injury.

You must have evidence to successfully prove your case.

Document the incident: 

Take photos of the scene of the accident and the cause of your injuries.  Depending on the situation, this could range from pictures of damaged motor vehicles to an unsafe property condition.  Get the contact information for all the parties involved as well as any witnesses.

Document your injuries and seek medical attention:

Take photos of your injuries and seek the medical treatment necessary for your recovery.

File your claim with insurance: But contact us first!

We strongly encourage you to consult with a personal injury lawyer before speaking with an insurance adjuster or signing documents.  Insurers have become increasingly aggressive in attempting to convince claimants to settle quickly. Insurance companies are in the business of making money and will devalue your claim to pay you as little as possible. National statistics show that insurers pay unrepresented claimants significantly less than those who hire a personal injury lawyer.


Proving your personal injury case: 

Again, this is when the legal skills of an experienced personal injury lawyer come in. The attorneys at Ayan Law Office will take over the job of proving your case so that you can focus on healing from your injuries.  Let us help you.

We will establish liability:

As personal injury attorneys, we have the resources to investigate the cause of your injury and establish liability. While liability may seem straight-forward (such as in a rear-end accident), at-fault parties or their insurance companies rarely take responsibility without legal pressure to do so. We can’t count the number of times a party has changed their story after admitting fault at the scene of an injury.

We will gather evidence of your damages: 

Once the elements of duty, breach and causation have been met, it is also necessary to prove that you have been harmed.  This is generally pursued after the nature, severity and duration of your injuries have been established. Evidence of the damages you have suffered will need to be gathered. Generally, damages can be broken down into two categories:

Economic damages: Property damage, past & future medical bills, past & future income loss, and reduced earning capacity.

Non-economic damages: Pain & suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress, disfigurement, disability and in some cases, loss of consortium.

Wrongful Death Law

If the injuries result in death, Washington law allows survivors of the deceased person to file a wrongful death claim to seek compensation for their loss.  Family members who may be able to pursue a wrongful death action include:
  • Spouse
  • Children
  • Siblings or parents if they were financially dependent on the deceased.

Our personal injury lawyers will ensure that all responsible parties are held accountable for taking a loved one’s life.

Time Limit

The Washington statute of limitations for most (but not all) personal injury cases is 3 years.  This means that your claim must be settled or a lawsuit filed within 3 years of your injury or your case will be barred.  Contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after the incident to ensure that your claim is not compromised.

Comparative Negligence

Under Washington law, you can recover compensation for your injuries even if you are partially at fault for the accident. Your monetary award will, however, be reduced by your percentage of fault. Our personal injury lawyers can help fight against a comparative negligence claim in order to maximize your compensation.

Personal injury attorneys will pursue the evidence needed to prove each category of damages that you have sustained. 

With all the necessary evidence in hand, the attorneys at Ayan Law Office will fight for the compensation that you are entitled to and deserve. 

Your monetary award may be the result of rigorous settlement negotiations or awarded by judge or jury at trial.

The attorneys at Ayan Law Office have handled cases involving all types of injuries with some of the most common being:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Concussions
  • Broken bones
  • Internal bleeding
  • Lacerations, burns and scarring 
  • Torn cartilage and ligaments
  • Vertebral disc injuries
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Sprains and strains
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Post traumatic stress disorder
  • Anxiety
  • Permanent disabilities
  • Disfigurement

What Should I Expect After Hiring an Accident Attorney?

Our hope is that you will feel less stressed knowing that you can focus on your health while we focus on your claim. Your priority should be recovering from your injuries, not battling with an insurance company. 

Once hired, we will take over all communication with the insurance company.  Our attorneys will keep you informed and help you in any way we can.  We will take the time to understand how the injuries are impacting you and your loved ones so that we can fight for the maximum compensation that you are entitled to and deserve.  Your monetary award may be the result of rigorous settlement negotiations or awarded at trial. We won't stop fighting until you are satisfied.
