Common and uncommon injuries deserve compensation

A Washington resident's ability to function normally and complete their daily tasks depends on their health and well-being. A simple sprain has the ability to throw one's whole day off-a severe injury has the ability to throw the rest of one's life off. Unfortunately, regardless of how careful one is, someone else's negligence can cause a catastrophic injury that impacts not only an individual's life but also that of everyone who depends on and loves them.

How common are dog bites in Washington?

While a dog may be man's best friend and may be considered an essential part of one's family, the reality is that they can also be one's worst enemy. More than 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs across the country every year and about 20 percent of those bites require medical attention. Children account for more than half of those events and senior citizens are the second most likely group to be attacked.

Personal injury lawsuits include wrongful death claims

No one leaves their house in the morning expecting it to be the last time they will do so. Unfortunately, it is not unheard of for a person in Washington to be killed in a car wreck, pass away due to a medical mistake, die in a workplace accident or die while participating in a supervised activity. Sometimes, these deaths are simply unavoidable accidents. Unfortunately, many times these types of deaths are due to the negligence of another individual.

Are dog owners liable if their animals attack?

Many dog-owners in Washington love their pets and may be under the impression that their dog would never harm anyone. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Any dog could potentially bite someone, even without provocation. Therefore, it is up to dog owners to ensure the public is safe from their pet.

Personal injury claims can include wrongful death lawsuits

This blog often discusses the financial effects of an injury, and how these damages can affect the victim's family. For example, a person who has been injured in a car accident caused by a drunk driver must face enormous medical costs and lost wages from the time he or she cannot return to work. These damages can create a huge financial burden on a family, and can lead to long-term debt.

Assisting with premises liability claims

Most people in Washington entering a business or going to a person's home have the natural expectation that they will be safe in doing so. Unfortunately, hazards can exist on these premises that a person cannot anticipate. For example, there could be a puddle on the floor, making it dangerously slippery. Or, a step on a staircase could be broken and trip up an unsuspecting person. When a property owner knows of these hazards but does not fix them or warn people of them and a person is injured as a result, the injured person may want to pursue a premises liability lawsuit against the property owner.
