Emerging Trend: Communication and Resolution Programs

June 14th, 2018 Posted by Personal Injury 0 comments on “Emerging Trend: Communication and Resolution Programs”

It is no secret that hospitals, although often not for profit, are in the business of making money by providing medical care.  It is seemingly a simple exchange until something goes wrong. 

According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, and based on its collected data, medical malpractice is the third leading cause of death in the United States. One logical inference from that statistic is that you are more likely to die from the medical treatment at any given facility than you are for the actual condition you are there for. This is not to suggest there is any malice or intent on behalf of these providers but the statistics speak for themselves. (more…)

Personal Injury Statute of Limitations In Washington State

January 30th, 2018 Posted by Personal Injury 0 comments on “Personal Injury Statute of Limitations In Washington State”

Were you or a loved one injured by or because of another person? You may have a personal injury claim, including a lawsuit to recover injury damages, lost wages, compensation for medical bills and property damages, and more; but your time is limited. To determine the statute of limitations on your claim, you first need to know what type of claim you have. As an overview, Washington’s personal injury statute of limitations is the legal timeframe you have to commence your action in court.

Meaning that, if you wait until after the Washington statute of limitations to expire, you will be barred from filing a lawsuit and will collect nothing. (more…)

“The insurance company said I don’t need a personal injury attorney. Is that true?”

November 14th, 2017 Posted by Personal Injury 0 comments on ““The insurance company said I don’t need a personal injury attorney. Is that true?””

It is very common for injured victims of a car accident to be told by an insurance claims adjuster:

You don’t need a personal injury attorney.

OR

An attorney is just going to take all your money.”

At Washington Law Center, we understand that there are a few circumstances where you may not need the services of a personal injury attorney but nearly every case where someone is injured in a car accident, the injured party will greatly benefit from legal representation.

One obvious question to ask is, “why would an insurance company not want you to have an attorney?”  (more…)

Ford Explorer Lawsuit for Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Header

Washington Law Center Will Handle Your Ford Explorer Lawsuit

September 6th, 2017 Posted by Auto Accidents 0 comments on “Washington Law Center Will Handle Your Ford Explorer Lawsuit”

Ford Explorers have been the subject of recent headlines indicating a potentially dangerous manufacturing defect causing exhaust fumes, including carbon monoxide gas, to vent into the interior of the vehicle. The exhaust fumes have led to individuals complaining of nausea, headaches and diminished consciousness. Some have even asserted claims that the exhaust fumes have contributed to car crashes. Model year 2011 (the so-called “Fifth Generation” of Ford Explorer) marked a new platform for Ford. Unfortunately, this also marked the first year for the exhaust problems.

Reuters reported on July 28, 2017, that Ford has voluntarily agreed to pay for repairs to police versions of Ford Explorer Interceptor models. Various police departments have been monitoring their officers after some reported signs of poisoning. The city of Austin, Texas has already removed its Explorer fleet from service until further notice. (more…)

How Do I Get A Police Report?

May 25th, 2017 Posted by Auto Accidents 0 comments on “How Do I Get A Police Report?”

If you’ve been involved in a car accident in Washington, you may be wondering how to obtain a police report for your own benefit and for insurance purposes. Many people involved in an auto accident believe that the paper they receive at the scene of the vehicle collision is the police report; however, that is normally just an “Exchange of Information” and the actual report is something that is created and submitted later by the responding officer.

Are police reports available to the public?

It’s important for our community to realize that accident reports are different from other police records. Arrest reports, crime and or incident reports that are part of an investigation are not made readily available to the public. Motor vehicle accident reports are available to the public. They can be readily accessed by any interested party. In fact, the state of Washington allows you to access motor vehicle accident reports online. (more…)
