Experienced Injury Lawyers Aggressively Fighting for the Unfairly Injured in Lakewood & Pierce County, WA
Personal injury law firms tend to talk a lot about “serious injuries,” usually in reference to the absolute worst accidents – the catastrophic car crashes, medical blunders, and even serious dog bite injuries that either end lives or forever change them for the worse.
The truth, though, is that any personal injury case warranting some sort of medical attention is serious. These cases – even if ultimately moderate in nature – cause pain and distress, take you away from your job for some period of time, and fundamentally disrupt your life.
Personal Injury Lawyers
If the injury happened because of someone else’s negligence, then none of that is your fault, and you don’t deserve any of it.
Brett McCandlis Brown & Conner PLLC is a law firm dedicated to the legal rights of personal injury victims. Our injury lawyers are here to assume your burdens, lighten your load, and put money back in your pocket.
Dog attacks can be life-altering. If you’ve been a victim, you may be wondering what to do next. It’s not always easy to find information about lawyers who help victims of dog attacks. Depending on the severity of the attack, you may be disfigured or seriously disabled. The dog may have given you any number of diseases. Once you’ve sought medical attention, our experienced team can help you get on the road to recovery.
Dog Parks in Lakewood
As a dog parent or a dog lover, you probably already know about the great dog resources in Lakewood. Our very own Fort Steilacoom Park has over 22 acres of beautiful open space for dogs and their owners to enjoy. But while the park is open and safe, off-leash areas in general can leave you vulnerable to a dog attack. Owners of dangerous dogs can pose a particular risk to others in off-leash spaces.
But it’s not just off-leash spaces where owners need to be responsible for their dogs. Owners need to be responsible for their dogs at all times, whether or not the dog has exhibited dangerous behavior in the past. If you’re legally on public or private property at the time you’re attacked, a dog owner can be held liable. Speak with a Lakewood dog bite lawyer to understand your rights.

How Much Can You Recover in a Lawsuit?
Every single personal injury lawsuit is different. Your facts, your damages, and your recovery are all unique to your story.
As Lakewood personal injury lawyers, our job is to thoroughly investigate your accident and make a compelling case that you deserve the largest amount of money available to you under the law. Naturally, the precise amount varies from case to case.
We understand, though, that victims are eager to get a ballpark sense of what the stakes in a lawsuit might look like. Give us a call! While we can’t guarantee an outcome, we can help you learn how much plaintiffs in similar cases have recovered in the past.
Typically, victims are entitled to recover for their:
- Medical expenses (e.g., doctor’s bills, surgical procedures, medical equipment)
- Hospital expenses (e.g., ambulances, ER)
- Physical therapy, rehabilitation, psychological care, etc.
- Lost income (if the injury has kept you away from work or will prevent you from fully resuming your career in the future)
- Damages to your property (vehicles, real estate, personal property, etc.)
- Pain, suffering, and emotional distress
- Loss of love and support (in the case of wrongful death)
- Other losses caused by a defendant’s negligence
Pedestrian Struck by a Train-$3,500,000
How do you get sufficient damages for an industrial worker who leaves his work station, borrows his employer’s front-end loader, parks it across a railroad track at 2:00 A.M., dismounts to load the bucket with railroad ties for his own personal use, and fails to notice an oncoming train?
Closed Head Injury in a Rollover-$1,750,000
Our client was in a high-speed, roll-over freeway accident, resulting in multiple spine fractures and a closed head injury that ended his career as a physician. Since his insurance company denied full coverage by arguing that at 56, our client was near retirement and didn’t need to work. Attorney Dean Brett established that without the accident, our client would have continued to work at least ten more years, resulting in a wage loss claim of $1.2 million and a total settlement of $1,750,000.
Fractured Leg of Pedestrian-$490,000
Our client was an elite runner who trained up to 20 miles a day, 6 days a week. During a run he was hit by a 17-year-old driver who had fallen asleep at the wheel, causing serious orthopedic and head injuries including tibia/fibula fractures, ligament injuries, ankle and foot injuries which ended his career as a top-level marathon runner.
Pedestrian’s Multiple Fractures Lead to Nearly $450,000 Settlement
Our client was walking her dog when she was struck in a marked crosswalk by a 23-year old driver. The force of the impact threw Jane onto the car. Her injuries included fractures to her arm, leg, rib, and facial bones.
