    I agree with the other attorneys' answers. Based on your summary, it sounds like you have a valid claim. Our firm handles these types of claims regulary. The insurance companies usually claim the injured victim is partially at fault. We have had success disproving that allegation. You should contact an attorney soon to discuss your rights and options.

    I am sorry to hear about your horrible injuries. You should speak to an attorney and have these stairs examined by an expert. The information you provided is not enough to determine if the building owner is responsible for a dangerous condition. Don't accept any offers until you consult with an attorney.

    I am sorry to hear about your loss. You should contact an attorney very soon to discuss your family's options. If he died in 2011, then the statute of limitations is approaching. The lawsuit must be filed within three years of the negligence. The Personal Representative of his estate is the one who brings the claim on behalf of the estate. If there has not been an PR appointed, the attorney handling the medical malpractice case can assist in opening up a probate and appointing a PR.

    I am sorry to hear about your husband's injuries. You should speak to an attorney right away to learn all your options. Most attorney, like myself, will provide a free consultation.

    I am sorry to hear about your husband's injury. As an avid bike rider, this is one of my biggest fears. An attorney can help him receive compensation for all his damages (medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering) and take the stress of dealing with insurance companies away. If he or the other driver has PIP coverage on their insurance policy, his medical may be covered. It is best to talk to a lawyer right away. Our firm (and many others) will provide an initial consultation for free.

    I am sorry to hear about your illness. You should speak to an attorney with experience in medical malpractice cases. Before an attorney will decide if your case has merit, he or she will have all your records reviewed by an expert. If the expert determines that 1) your doctor violated the standard of care by failing to diagnosis your cancer, and 2) that failure negatively and substantially impacted your chance of recovery then you have enough to bring a claim. That doesn't mean your claim...

    No. You must file a lawsuit before the end of the statute of limitations. You should contact an attorney right away to help you with this process. Medical malpractice claims like this are complicated and there are many pitfalls that can trap the unfamiliar. Even attorneys who do not handle these cases frequently can fall victim. One issue is identifying the proper date in which the statute of limitations began. Do not delay, contact an attorney right away.

    I am sorry to hear about your daughter's collision. She is fortunate to have escaped serious injury. I would urge your daughter to hire an attorney. It sounds like she has suffered some injury and it is too early to tell how serious those injuries might be in the long term. Soft tissue injuries (whiplash) to the neck and back can get worse with time as scar tissue forms. Also a concussion can cause problems that she might not link to the accident immediately. Even a mild concussion can...

    Your employer may be forced to pay double the amount of wages owed, plus interest and attorney’s fees. See RCW 49.52.070. You should probably contact an attorney right away to discuss your options. Most attorneys will give you a free initial consultation.
