Who Caused Your Injuries?
Auto accidents rank high among the leading causes of death, both in Washington and throughout the United States. That’s incredibly upsetting because so many of these accidents are completely preventable.
Driver negligence is responsible for the overwhelming majority of vehicle accidents in our state. Common examples of driver negligence include:
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Operating a poorly maintained vehicle
- Driving without a valid license
- Texting while driving
- Failing to take heavy rain or inclement weather into account
- Running red lights or stop signs
- Making dangerous or illegal mergers or turns
- Failure to yield
- Violating traffic laws
Washington allows vehicle accident victims to recover compensation from negligent defendants. Usually, that means that the victim files a lawsuit against the careless driver – and then the driver hands that suit over to his or her insurance company.
Unfortunately, auto insurance providers are crafty and stubborn. They don’t want to pay you a penny, and they’ll take every avenue that they can find to avoid giving you the money that you deserve. The Richland personal injury attorneys at Brett McCandlis Brown know how handle those insurance companies.
We’ve recovered substantial compensation for drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and other victims throughout The Evergreen State. Let us fight for compensation in your case, too.
Someone You Trusted
So much of personal injury litigation is focused on a breached duty of care. This means that someone who is in a position of trust or responsibility has let you down by behaving carelessly or unreasonably.
We see this most often in cases involving medical malpractice, defective products, and dangerous pharmaceuticals.
Specifically, professional duty of care cases in Washington might include:
- Doctor negligence
- Dental malpractice
- Anesthesia malpractice
- Surgical malpractice
- Failure to diagnose
- Failure to treat a stroke
- Birth injury
- Nursing home negligence
Additionally, our Richland personal injury attorneys can help you seek justice from companies that manufacture various medications or consumer products that cause you harm.
We all trust doctors, product manufacturers, and pharmaceutical companies to keep us safe. We expect them to behave cautiously, and to know what they’re doing. When they fall short of those standards, they are legally liable for the damages that result.
We all try our best to get along with our neighbors. Accidents happen, though, and disputes can arise. Lawsuits between neighbors are most common in dog bite cases. Alternatively, these disputes might involve a property-related accident or injury.
In any event, victims are sometimes reluctant to file a lawsuit against their neighbors. After all, these are people who you see often. You might even consider them friends.
There is a way to handle these claims tactfully, though. Remember: In most cases, it’s the insurance company that is on the hook for your damages – not necessarily your neighbors themselves. Let our Richland personal injury attorneys look at your situation and clarify your options.
