  • Service of Process Washington State King County

    Hello-- I need to file suit in King County Small Claims Court but the only address info I have for the defendant is a PO Box. I filed a request for Boxholder information with USPS but the response came back "Unknown". ...

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    You might try asking the court to allow you to serve by mail. The statute for service allows service by mail under certain circumstances, which might apply to you. You would need to file a motion with the court, attaching an affidavit, explaining what steps you have taken, and why why you cannot serve the defendant. Look up the rules of procedure for courts of limited jurisdiction, which should get you started to doing this.

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    You don't say, but I'll assume that he got a judgment against you. If so, and if you have the money to pay it, you can deposit the monies in the court registry, and have the court enter a satisfaction of judgment, which you can take to the DOL to get your license restored.

    8 attempts to serve papers on a defendent who was avoiding service. Can papers be served by mail to calif. defendent on case in the washington state court system. If so what are the time frame required for an answer from the defendent?

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    I would first need to know what kind of case you filed? For instance, if it is an auto wreck case, you may be able to serve the WA Secretary of State. I would also need to know how the attempts were made, and how you know that you had the correct address.

    First, if you have not done so, go to see your doctor, and then follow your doctor's instructions. You should also consult with a lawyer. Finally, do not give a recorded statement to Amica before you hire an attorney.

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    I assume that you were represented by an attorney. You need to ask your attorney this question. It would take a great deal
    of information and familiarity with the facts of your case before anyone could even begin to advise you about this.

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    I agree that you need to speak with your insurance company about this. You should also refer the collections company and the other insurance company to the adjuster handling this for your insurance company.

    Your insurance rates should not have been affected if you were not at fault, so speak to your agent about that and, if that has happened, you should consult with an attorney.

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    You should contact an attorney who is experienced in handling both claims for injury on the job, outside of L & I, but also traumatic brain injury cases. Traumatic brain injury claims are generally more complicated, and require specialized handling and knowledge.
