Have you been in a car or truck accident, or another type of collision?
Our office has represented hundreds of individuals who have been injured in car and truck accidents. We have represented individuals in collisions involving cars, trucks, semi-trucks, company vehicles, and many other vehicles. Motor vehicle collisions have many considerations.
First, we ask whether you had insurance at the time of the collision. We always recommend that you have insurance and that you have PIP (Personal Injury Protection) and UIM (Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist) coverages. PIP will provide you with medical payments and wage loss payments up to the maximum amount set forth in the policy, while UIM coverage will provide you with coverage to compensate you for your injuries if the careless driver had little or no insurance.
We also want to know how much insurance the at-fault driver had and whether it is enough to fully compensate you for your injuries. We will ask questions about how the collision occurred and if there was more than one person who caused the collision. We always investigate the facts of the case so that we know who was at fault for the collision. If you hire us in your case, we will immediately obtain any and all police reports and witness statements. Often, we will interview witnesses if there is any question about who was at fault and thoroughly investigate the facts early on.
We believe that our court system is overburdened and the litigation process is time consuming and costly. Most cases should be settled out of court. However, it is not always possible to obtain fair compensation without filing a lawsuit. Sometimes trial cannot be avoided, and we aggressively litigate those cases that require a judge or jury to render justice.
Motorcycle Accident / Collision
I have been riding and racing motorcycles since I was approximately twelve years old. I’m still actively involved in the Skagit Motorcycle Club and regularly ride motorcycles. I am very familiar with how motorcycles should be operated.
As a motorcycle accident attorney I have represented many motorcyclists who have been involved in collisions due to the carelessness of another person. Motorcycle collisions differ from automobile collisions for several reasons. First, the injuries are almost always more severe. Second, there are unique investigative issues that arise in motorcycle collisions that must be anticipated. Third, due to the severity of the injuries, there are often permanent injuries with long range consequences that require us to hire experts in the areas of vocational rehabilitation and economics.
If you’ve been injured in a motorcycle collision, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will thoroughly investigate your case and aggressively represent you for your injuries.
