    I believe you do have a potential claim, but all the facts and evidence will need to be examined and evaluated by an experienced personal injury attorney. Be aware that the state of Washington has a three year statute of limitations. You should promptly retain an attorney on a contingency fee basis.

    James’s Answer

    Yes, your mother will probably get sued. However, she should turn the matter over to her homeowner’s liability insurance policy. Her insurance carrier is required to defend her and pay any judgment entered against her up to her liability insurance policy limits.

    You should do a free consultation with an attorney. However, if the damage is small you may want to consider paying the damage and terminating your friendship with the alleged at-fault driver.

  • Back in sept 2012 i was walking out of walmart and tripped over a rug i ended up face down dr. said i strained my neck and hurt

    my right arn i went to physical therapy for awhile now the bills are coming after i said i didn't want to be bothered with suing walmart now i need a lawyer

    James’s Answer

    As to whether you have a case for negligence against Wal-Mart will depend on whether Wal-Mart was negligent in placing the rug on the floor and whether it was foreseeable that a person would fall due to the placement of the rug. I believe you have a valid case, but you should use a local Spokane personal injury attorney since there are no broken bones or severe injuries involved.

  • I slipped in gas station bathroom first 2 steps in. The wet sign was inside the bathroom. It was wet right at the door

    The sign was not visible until after I slipped

    James’s Answer

    I believe you might have a valid case. You will need to hire an attorney and a slip and fall expert. The attorney will generally work on a contingency basis where no attorney fees are charged unless they recover money on your injury claim.
