KENT PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER

People are injured in Kent every day. Whether in a car accident or pedestrian accident, slip and fall or case of product liability, injuries happen far too often in in the Seattle-Tacoma metroplex area. While some accidents are unstoppable and unforeseeable, others are the direct result of human error and negligence. When human error causes an injury, the at-fault person needs to be held liable – this is often times the only way that the victim can recover the financial compensation that they need to pay their medical bills and compensate for lost wages. At the Khan Law Firm, our Seattle personal injury attorneys will help you to understand the steps of a personal injury action, and will represent you throughout the entire process.

Types of Personal Injury Claims

Within the overarching realm of personal injury law, there are a number of more specific personal injury case types. At the Khan Law Firm, we represent victims in myriad case types, including:

  • Wrongful death. If the death of a loved one would not have occurred but for the wrongful act of another, the surviving family members deserve compensation for the deceased person’s lost wages and income, lost benefits, funeral and burial expenses, medical expenses prior to death, and their own emotional losses and suffering.
  • Car, truck, bus, boat, and motorcycle accidents. An accident involving a motor vehicle of any type is more than just a day ruiner; if the crash is severe, it can ruin someone’s life. If you have suffered property loss, injuries, and missed time from work due to an accident involving a car, boat, bus, truck, or motorcycle, we can help you get to the bottom of what happened, who is to blame, and against whom you should file a suit for damages.
  • Product liability cases.Manufacturers of all products have a duty to ensure that their product is free from any known risks, and if there are risks, that these risks are disclosed to the consumer. However, every year there are stories of defective cars leading to accidents, dangerous rides leading to devastating injuries, and even baby furniture involved in devastating incidents.
  • Premises liability cases.Premises liability law is the set of laws that govern the duties that property owners have to those who enter their premises. In brief, the law requires that a property owner maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition that is free from any known hazards, and to correct hazards within a timely manner if they are to appear. Unfortunately, property owners often neglect this duty. The result may be dog bites, slip and fall accidents, drowning incidents, amusement park ride accidents, and other terrible accident and injury types.
  • Pedestrian and bicycle accidents.Pedestrians and bicyclists who are injured in a crash are not only often severely injured, but are also usually not to blame for their accident. Too often, drivers speed, fail to yield, forget to look, or even aggressively approach pedestrians and cyclists in Kent and surrounding areas, causing them devastating – and sometimes fatal – injuries.

INJURIES THAT RESULT WHEN AN ACCIDENT HAPPENS

The type and extent of injury that a person sustains following an accident will depend on the force involved (for example, the speed at which a vehicle was traveling, the weight of vehicles involved, etc.) and the type of accident. That being said, motor vehicle accidents, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents, and premises liability cases all have the potential to result in:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries – Ranging in severity from mild to severe, a TBI can affect a person’s cognition, motor skills, and emotions, and may leave them permanently impaired;
  • Broken Bones – Broken bones usually heal completely, but can be painful and expensive to repair;
  • Spinal Cord Injuries – One of the most traumatic injuries is damage to the spinal cord, which controls motor abilities and can leave a person paralyzed for life;
  • Scarring and Disfigurement – When a person is burned, cut, lacerated, bitten, or otherwise impacted, they may bear the scars of the trauma for life;
  • Psychological Injuries – accidents can be traumatizing, and leave a person suffering with anxiety, depression, and PTSD – these conditions can prevent an individual from returning to the life that they had prior to the accident.

Some of the above injuries will heal with time and money to pay for medical treatment, therapy, and rehabilitation. Other injury types will never heal, even if the best medical care in the world is provided. A person who is injured in an accident may never be able to maintain the same level of intimacy with their spouse, pick up their children, return to work, or even enjoy a walk outdoors.

RECOVER DAMAGES

Many people think that they can deal with insurance companies and the legal system on their own. Unfortunately, not only is the legal system complex, but insurance adjusters and attorneys for the defense are very skilled in denying claims and getting what they want. When you work with an attorney, you are working with someone who knows how to fight back and advocate for your rights.

At the Khan Law Firm, we want you to know that we will not give up on you. The process begins when you pick up the phone and schedule a free case consultation with our experienced Kent personal injury lawyer.
