Personal Injury

Legal Representation for Personal Injury Victims in Seattle, Washington


What is a Personal Injury?

A personal injury case differs from a random accident in several ways.  Someone else’s carelessness creates a personal injury claim.  Carelessness occurs in thousands of ways.  It might be a motorist’s decision to drive under the influence or a general contractor’s or site owner’s failure to safely maintain heavy machinery at a construction site. Carelessness kills and maims and usually occurs because wrongdoers ignore the safety of innocent people.

Though many accident victims suffer physical injuries, including fractures, limb loss, and paralysis, personal injuries are not limited to bodily harm. Personal injuries can also be mental or emotional.  For example, trauma stemming from a car accident can result in the inability to get behind the wheel again. Likewise, a workplace injury can cause a victim to be afraid to set foot back at their place of employment.  An incident involving abuse at a nursing home can lead a victim to feel mistrust toward other caregivers or even their own loved ones. There are many ways in which a personal injury can drastically alter a victim’s life, daily routines and ability to work. This is why it is imperative to secure an experienced personal injury attorney to guide put you back as nearly as possible to your life before a thoughtless entity struck you down.

How an Experienced Personal Injury Accident Attorney Can Protect Your Rights

Although a personal injury victim may have a lawful claim to compensation for injuries or for the loss of a loved one due to another’s negligent actions, justice isn’t easy. Many victims go without medical care, wage loss payment, property damage replacement, reimbursement for traveling to doctors or for hiring others to do what you can no longer do.  Insurance companies resist paying benefits to victims, even in the face of disabling or fatal accidents, Insurance companies are often unwilling to discuss a case with the victim or their relatives.   That’s where having a skilled attorney makes all the difference.
