Personal injury law is designed to compensate victims who are harmed by the negligent acts of others.

We can help you in identifying the individuals responsible for your injuries and holding them legally accountable in court.
Skilled Legal Representation in All Types of Personal Injury Matters
Some of the personal injury matters we assist clients with include:
Some accidents are simply the result of ignoring basic traffic safety rules. In other cases, an accident may be the result of truly reckless conduct like drunk driving. Whatever the underlying reason, the driver who causes the accident is still legally responsible for the victim’s damages under Washington law.
Commercial trucking accidents involving “big rigs” often produce catastrophic damage to other persons on the road. In these cases, the companies that own the truck and its cargo may be just as legally liable, if not more so, than the driver.
When a victim dies in an accident, the family has legal rights to pursue compensation by filing a wrongful death claim against the responsible individuals.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Premises liability is a type of personal injury claim that applies to negligent property owners. If you slip and fall on a hazard while shopping at the store, for example, you can seek compensation from the business that owns and operates the premises.
Dangerous and Defective Products
Any company that manufactures consumer products can be sued if there was a defect in the design or production of that product that led to a customer’s injuries. In some cases the manufacturer is also responsible for “failure to warn” consumers on how to safely use a product with known risks.

Available Compensation in a Personal Injury Case
In legal terms, a person’s damages refer to their losses due to the defendant’s negligent conduct. Washington law allows a successful personal injury plaintiff to recover damages in a number of areas, such as:
- Reimbursement for any medical treatment, including any past, present, and future medical bills.
- Reimbursement for loss of income or future earning potential.
- Reimbursement for any property damage, such as the cost of repairing a vehicle damaged in an auto accident.
- Non-economic damages to compensate a plaintiff for their pain and suffering.

Speak with Our Personal Injury Lawyers Today
Many personal injury cases can be resolved via settlement, either directly with the defendant or indirectly with their insurance company. Having a lawyer present for such negotiations can greatly improve your chances of a resolution. But when a settlement is not possible, a personal injury attorney can zealously represent your interests in court and throughout the litigation process.
