David Brown

In every case, with every client, I spend the time to talk straight about the law.

What is important to me is that I sit down and talk to each client about the law, to explain the law that applies to his or her case. It is important to me to spend this time because I want each client to understand all legal options and then let them choose which option is right for them. I want clients to feel that they are calling the shots in their case. When an injured client has all the information about the facts of their injury case and understands the legal rules that apply, they can make a decision that is best for them personally.

Justice for Your Car Accident Claim Is Available – But You Have to Demand It

The state of Washington is one of the nation’s safer places to drive. Not safe, mind you – just safer than most other states. Statistics fade into meaninglessness, however, once you become one of them. A serious auto accident is a tragedy. However, tragedy becomes monstrous injustice when the injured person is not the one who caused the accident.Washington has created a system designed to restore justice in this situation (at least as far as money damages are capable of restoring justice). The process is far from automatic, however. Justice must be fought for and the arcane rules of liability, evidence, and civil procedure render enforcement a daunting prospect for an injured victim attempting to represent himself.

Most Car Accident Claims Are Resolved Out of Court

Washington offers three main ways for you to secure compensation in the event that you sustain an injury in a car accident:

  • Negotiation: Negotiation with an insurance company is the most common way of resolving a car accident claim. The end result is an enforceable settlement agreement.
  • Arbitration: Washington law requires you to arbitrate claims of less than $15,000 (less than $50,000 in some counties).
  • Trial: If your claim is large enough, and if you cannot reach a private settlement, a full-blown trial might be your only option. Claims proceed all the way to trial less than ten percent of the time.

Regardless of how you end up resolving your claim, the assistance of a seasoned Washington personal injury lawyer is likely to be critical. We understand how difficult the days, weeks, and months that follow a serious car accident can be, which is why we offer our services to you. From the moment you agree to work with us, we will handle all of the paperwork, filings, and negotiations surrounding your car accident.
