Personal Injury

Have you been injured, physically or psychologically, as a result of the negligence of another person, company, government agency or any entity?

Types of Personal Injury We Cover

Personal injury law covers many possible case types. Listed below are only a few examples of the possible opportunities for personal injury claims.

Car Accidents – If you are hurt in a car accident and you are not at fault, you could be compensated for your damages. Washington, however, is an at-fault auto insurance state, so your personal injury claim needs to be secure before you file. We also help clients injured in semi-truck wrecks and motorcycle collisions.

Defective Products – Unfortunately, unsafe and defective products hit store shelves all the time. When one of those products injures someone, the victim may be entitled to damages from the defective product’s manufacturer.

Premises Liability Accidents – If you were hurt in a slip-and-fall accident or other similar incidents that the property owner should have addressed and prevented, you may be compensated for the expenses of dealing with and suffering from your injuries. Dog bite injuries may also fall under this category.

Medical Malpractice – If a medical professional has harmed you through negligence, you could be eligible to recover compensation through a medical malpractice claim.

Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect – Nursing homes and their staff can be held financially accountable in civil court for abusing or neglecting residents.

Recovering the Compensation You Deserve

The following includes general damages which you may be entitled to:

  • Disability. You may be entitled to a recovery for disability if you are unable to lead a normal life as a result of your injuries.
  • Disfigurement. If you have suffered any disfigurement as a result of the accident you may be entitled to a recovery of damages.
  • Pain and Suffering. You may be entitled to a recovery for pain and suffering for the physical and mental discomfort caused by your injuries.
  • Loss of Enjoyment of Life. You may be entitled to recover for loss of enjoyment such as where you have an inability to pursue activities that you once enjoyed.
  • Earning Capacity. You may be entitled to loss of earning capacity if you have a permanent diminishment of your ability to earn money.
  • Loss of Consortium. If you’re married at the time of an accident, your spouse may be able to make a recovery for loss of consortium. Loss of consortium usually includes the damage the accident has caused to your relationship. Under certain circumstances, loss of consortium can extend to your children as well.
