    Steve’s Answer

    The amount of the claim worth is impossible to pin down without having reviewed all of the medical records, it's undoubtedly worth more than what you are being offered. You should contact an injury attorney immediately.

    I am at a hopeless condition right now. The Paralegal is a fraud. Everything that could go wrong on the bodily injury claim has. PIP has cut off all help. My lawyer might be working for the Insurance

    Steve’s Answer

    If your relationship with your lawyer's office has been soured to the point that you believe they're not working toward your interests for whatever reason, it is best for everyone that you call another attorney and schedule a free consultation. You're not required to stay with your attorney if you don't like them.

    I'm terribly sorry to hear about your finger. You do have a workers' compensation claim, and should call a Washington Workers' Comp attorney and see how they can help you.

  • What happens if...my Work Comp attorneys miss an important filing deadline

    My attorneys seemingly have done little to no work on my case. I have no idea what is happening to prepare for the hearing but it sounds like nothing. And it appears that a very important deadline was missed which affects what or who can be used t...

    Steve’s Answer

    You should consult with your attorney immediately. I hope no deadlines have been irreparably missed. You can likely get a continuance but as attorney Holm suggests it will delay the process. If you're not satisfied with your attorney you are always free to speak with other attorneys in a free consultation to see if they would be more appropriate as your representative.

    Steve’s Answer

    I'm sorry to hear about your accident. From your description of your injuries, I'd have to recommend you call an attorney who helps people injured in car accidents. There's a lot more information needed to analyze your case, and none of it is appropriate for a public forum. Claim worth is less important than you getting better. Give someone a call today and they'll guide you through the process.

    Steve’s Answer

    Your attorney should be able to point you to someone in their network. If you don't have an attorney, you should call one that's local to you and handles car accidents to set up a free consult. For a case that's as serious as yours, I'd definitely recommend calling one soon.

    Steve’s Answer

    I'm sorry to hear about your ribs. The attorney you speak with will have to talk to you at length in order to properly analyze your case. You should call a local attorney and speak with them about hat happened, or at least set an appointment to do so.

  • Where to start finding an attorney

    I recently found out that I have a trans vaginal mesh. That has been causing me problems for a while. I do not know where to start. I now have to have reconstructive surgery.

    Steve’s Answer

    I'm terribly sorry to hear about your mesh problems. You could very well be entitled to compensation, but you would want to act sooner than later as there is a time sensitivity involved. There are many firms such as mine that handle serious personal injury and defective products. We'd all be happy to speak with you about your case and guide you through the process.

  • Do I need an attorney to settle my L&I claim? I had a rare shoulder surgery and will have pain for the rest of my life.

    I cannot return to job of injury based on physical restrictions and the risk of re-injury. Im not sure what to do next.

    Steve’s Answer

    You should have an experienced L&I attorney go over your case to see if you're even at maximum medical improvement. You could have very well been ushered through the process. The advantages of having an attorney possibly elongate your claim as well as likely attaining a much higher PPD settlement for your claim greatly outweigh any perceived disadvantage of having to pay attorney fees. If you like, we have someone standing by at about 8 AM to speak to you about your claim.
