Experienced Accident and Injury Lawyers Fighting for Financial Compensation for the Injured in Centralia, Washington
The sheer quantity of preventable injury in this country is overwhelming. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) report that 31 million Americans fall victim to a personal injury every year – and that’s only including the accidents serious enough to require medical attention.
The U.S. Department of Justice breaks those numbers down by accident type, and the statistics are startling:
- 52 percent of U.S. personal injuries happen in auto accidents.
- 15 percent of U.S. personal injuries are the result of medical malpractice.
- 5 percent of U.S. personal injuries involve a defective product of some kind.
In every single case, there is a common factor: The injury could have been avoided if the defendant had simply been more careful.
Negligence may not be intentional, but it can be absolutely devastating. Not only are victims left in a world of pain and psychological trauma, but they’re also expected to deal with hefty bills and complex red tape.
Even more modest injuries can invite tremendous hassle into the lives of victims and their families. That simply isn’t fair.

How Much Can You Recover in a Lawsuit?
It’s a common question, but there is no one-size-fits all answer. The compensation available to you depends entirely on the facts of your situation. As a general rule, though, the victims of negligence frequently underestimate the value of their suffering.
Studies show that plaintiffs who are represented by an experienced personal injury attorney recover more than those who go it alone. As Centralia personal injury lawyers, it is our job to examine your case closely, identify every possible source of compensation, and do what we can to maximize the value of your claim.
Typically, plaintiffs are entitled to recover the following:
- Medical expenses (e.g., doctor’s bills, surgical procedures, medical equipment)
- Hospital expenses (e.g., ambulances, ER)
- Pharmaceutical expenses
- Physical therapy, rehabilitation, psychological care, etc.
- Lost income (when the injury keeps you away from work or prevents you from resuming your career in the future)
- Damage to your property (e.g., real estate, personal property, vehicles)
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of love and support (in wrongful death cases)
- Other losses caused by the defendant’s negligence

What to do when I’m attacked by a dog?
No one expects to be bitten by a dog. But even if you know a dog well, it can become scared or possessive over something and lash out. Dog attacks happen all the time in Centralia. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a dog attack, you may be entitled to compensation. Our Centralia dog bite attorneys are here to take on your case and help you get the compensation you deserve.
Dog bites and dog attacks can cause serious and significant injuries. In many cases, people suffer from puncture wounds due to the bite, or lacerated skin that will cause disfiguring scars. Sometimes the dog attack is so violent that people suffer from broken bones in their hands, legs, and shoulders due to trying to fend off the dog. In many cases, dog attack victims fall, striking their heads on a hard surface. If this happens, the victim can suffer from traumatic brain injuries (TBI), such as concussions and fractured skulls.
The State of Washington holds dog owners responsible for whatever injuries their dogs cause. And it doesn’t matter if the dog has never been violent before and this was merely the first bite. The owner is still responsible. The only time a dog owner isn’t responsible is when the dog was provoked or if the attack occurred on their property and the victim was illegally trespassing.
If you or a loved one has suffered from a serious dog attack, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact our Centralia dog bite lawyers for help in getting all of your questions answered and fighting for your rights.
