AREAS OF PRACTICE
What We Offer
Nearly a decade of legal experience and the trial results to prove it.
In 2020, there were 86,252 car crashes in Washington State, including 526 fatalities and tens of thousands of injuries.
The number one cause of crashes continues to be distracted driving. If you have been injured as a result of another person’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. An attorney can help.
According to the National Floor Safety Institute, falls account for approximately 20% of all hospital ER visits, with slip and fall incidents representing about 12% of total falls.
Injuries sustained in falls are also the leading cause of time missed from work. Twenty-two percent of those falls can cause an individual to miss more than 31 days of work.
If someone else was responsible for causing you to slip, fall, and sustain injuries, you may want to speak with an attorney.
Dogs are increasingly more common members of the family in U.S. households.
While the people most likely to be victim of dog attacks are children, there are adults in certain occupations who may be more likely than others to become a victim of a dog attack:
- U.S. Postal Workers
- Meter Readers
- Food/other delivery drivers
Dog attacks can result in serious, permanent injuries.
If you have been the victim of a dog attack requiring medical attention, you may want to seek the help of an attorney.
A Johns Hopkins study concluded that the third-leading cause of death is medical error and account for at least 250,000 deaths in the U.S. annually – that’s 9.5% of all deaths each year. This includes medication dosage errors, misdiagnoses, healthcare system mistakes, poor judgment, lack of skill, surgical errors, too few or underutilized safety net protocols, among other issues.
Medical errors resulting in serious injury rather than death are likely a much higher figure. These claims can be difficult and expensive to prove and almost always require attorney involvement.
If you or a loved one have been injured as a result of medical error, please call for a consultation.
Insurance Bad Faith
When you buy an insurance policy, your insurer is contractually obligated to treat you in a fair manner. When an insurer acts unreasonably or fails to treat you fairly, you may have a claim that entitles you to damages for the harm the unreasonable conduct has caused.
These claims are well-defended by insurers. However, when pursued by a competent attorney, they serve as an essential and important check on insurance companies. These claims are so important, in fact, that the law allows harmed insureds to collect up to 3x their damages.
If your insurer has denied a claim for benefits or treated you unfairly, you may want to consider speaking with a lawyer.
LOOKING FOR A RELIABLE, DEDICATED, TALENTED ATTORNEY?
Why Hire An Attorney
Handle the Paperwork
Personal injury claims are complex. When you’re injured, your focus needs to be on your recovery, not paperwork. Personal injury lawyers know that proving your case requires gathering the right evidence. A lawyer can collect that evidence for you. Examples include medical records and bills, accident reports, photographs, insurance information, and eyewitness statements. A personal injury attorney can do all of the legwork so that you can focus on healing.
Level the Playing Field
Insurance claims adjusters are trained in specific tactics intended to deny or limit the amount of compensation you may receive. A skilled attorney knows these strategies and can fight back to ensure that you are not strong-armed into accepting less than fair compensation
Personal injury claims can be compromised, and even destroyed, by even small missteps. A lawyer can protect you from these missteps to ensure that your claim is organized and placed in the right light.
Value Your Claim
Experienced attorneys have the benefit of settling many cases, researching jury verdicts, and connecting with other attorneys to understand case value. A savvy attorney will also recognize when it may be necessary to bring an expert into your case to better understand or explain an accident or specific injury. This kind of know-how tells insurance companies that you mean business, making them more likely to treat you fairly.
No Fee Unless You Win
Most personal injury attorneys take cases on a contingency basis. That means that you pay no legal fees unless the lawyer obtains a settlement on your behalf. Most importantly, you don’t have to worry about upfront costs of the case while you’re also contending with other expenses like medical bills or time missed from work. The lawyer assumes the risk of the case with you and advances costs necessary to achieve a successful result. That means that you’re both interested in the best possible result for you.
