Seattle Personal Injury Lawyer
Suffering a personal injury in a trip and fall, car accident or other unexpected event is by definition not something you are prepared to deal with. The law imposes duties on individuals and businesses to act with care toward others, and violating that duty results in liability for the injuries that result. Unfortunately, holding the responsible party liable is not always a simple matter. Insurance companies employ specially trained claims adjusters who deal with insurance claims every day and whose goal is to resolve the claim for as little as possible. This is not in your best interest, which is why you need to be represented in the process by an attorney who also deals with insurance claims every day but whose interest is in making sure you get the maximum in compensation to deal with your medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and other legal damages. In Washington State, Emerald Law Group is the law firm for you when you’ve been injured by another’s negligence or wrongful conduct. Contact our experienced Seattle personal injury lawyers today.
Helping You Get the Maximum Compensation You Deserve
In any personal injury case, the burden falls on the injury victim to prove all the elements of a negligence or tort claim. These elements include proving:
- The other party owed you a duty of care
- They breached that duty by something they did or didn’t do
- Their negligence caused you to suffer an injury
In each of these areas, the insurance company has a pocketful of tricks and tactics they pull out to minimize or avoid their liability. When it comes to fault, they’ll say their insured wasn’t to blame or your injuries were caused in some other way, such as playing sports or due to a pre-existing condition. They might also say you aren’t hurt as bad as you say you are or that your injuries couldn’t have been caused in the accident, and they’ll hire their own doctors to give an opinion to that effect. We’ll not only help you get the medical care you truly need, but we’ll help you document the medical bills and other costs you’ve been forced to endure, including your pain and suffering, loss of work, inconvenience, and the impact of the injury on your quality of life. Our experienced Seattle personal injury lawyers work to create a complete picture that proves the need for maximum compensation, whether we are negotiating a settlement with the insurance company or taking them to court and proving your case to a jury.
Insurers will often also say the accident was your fault, or that you contributed to it by your own negligence, such as failure to pay attention and avoid the accident. Every percent of the blame for the accident they can lay on you reduces the amount they’ll have to pay, but it’s important to know that you can still hold them liable for their portion of the damages they caused you, even if you are found to be more at fault than the other party. But we won’t let this happen when the facts don’t support it. Just because the insurance company says something is true does not make it so. We know the law of personal injury in Washington, and we are as skilled and experienced in accident investigations and analysis as any insurance claims adjuster or attorney. We’ll gather the facts and put together a strong case that proves the other party’s fault in causing the accident and their liability for the full amount of damages caused.
