Video Transcript: Personal Injury Attorneys That Get Results
ATTORNEY ASHTON DENNIS: At Washington Law Center, we get results. We have a proven track record in trial, in arbitration, and in mediation settings that separates us from the competition. We believe our results speak for themselves. We’ve taken, I can’t tell you how many cases, that have been turned down by other firms that were told there’s absolutely no way to recover on this case.
We proved them wrong. Not every injury attorney tries cases and I think that’s what people don’t understand. There are a lot of injury firms that won’t take a case to trial. Period. They will settle every case and we are not that way. We will do whatever it takes to get the result necessary and oftentimes that’s taking a case to trial if need be, when we’re not getting a settlement offer that represents fair value, that’s what we’ll do.
We’ve obtained hundreds of millions of dollars in verdicts, settlements, and pensions and we’ve been able to do that because we work hard. Insurance companies, the state, and corporations -they all know that when they’re up against our firm, up against Washington Law Center, that we will be prepared and we will get good results for clients.

Do I Need a Personal Injury Attorney?
There are a few important factors to consider when deciding if you have an injury case.
Is the insurance company collecting records, asking for statements, and starting to build their own case against you?
Have they sent you a check and you are unsure what to do with it?
“What is my injury case worth?”
Personal Injury and Abuse Case Resources
Washington Law Center has put together extensive personal injury legal resources to help you navigate your case.
Video Transcript: What Is My Personal Injury Claim Worth?
ATTORNEY ASHTON DENNIS: Wondering what your case is worth is a natural question to ask. It’s something that all of our clients have asked: what is my case worth? If an attorney is willing to give you what your case is worth over the phone, without meeting you, without understanding the facts, they’re doing you a disservice. Knowing precisely what your case is worth requires a lot of work and a lot of understanding. That’s not something that you can just simply answer off the cuff.
If that’s advice you’ve gotten, we’d encourage you to give us a call because we’ll ask the right questions. We’re going to ask you how this injury affected your life. How did it affect your family’s life? Are you able to work again? How much work did you miss? What type of treatment did you go through? What is the future going to look like? Those are the questions we’re going to ask you. We’re not just going to give you some boilerplate answer that your case is worth ‘x’.
That’s not what good injury attorneys do. They look at the specific facts. They look at how you’ve been hurt, how it has impacted your family, and then they determine how to best approach it and whether that’s through negotiations, through a trial process, but no two cases are the same.
