Bellevue Personal Injury Attorney

I have helped many clients who were involved in collisions in Bellevue or who live inBellevue. When needed, I can come to Bellevue to meet with clients – at their work orhome.

Clients come to me after being in an accident with many questions. For most people,suffering a serious injury in an accident and having to deal with insurance companies isbewildering and a stressful process. During many of my initial consultations I haveclients tell me they never imagined having to hire a lawyer or pursue a claim for injuries – but the impact on their lives has been so significant they feel they must take action. I can help you sort through the intricacies of insurance claims and make the process as stress free as possible.

Personal injuries suffered in a collision can range from sprain/strained muscles andligaments, such as whiplash or back pain, but can also include brain injuries, burns,broken bones, herniated discs, dislocations and other injuries which may requireextensive intensive medical treatment or even surgery. I know how to investigate thesetypes of injuries and help clients substantiate and document their claims.

The injuries suffered by people in accidents impact each individual differently. Havingneck or back pain can make it difficult and painful for people to sit at a computer all day at work. For other professions, the same injury might preclude working all together. For example, a professional dancer with significant neck or back pain might not be able to work at all until they recover. A carpenter or contractor who has a very physical jobmight not be able to work or might have to go on “light duty” – resulting in reducedincome. I can help you sort through these issues.

I represent people who have been seriously injured in car accidents, truck accidents,motorcycle accidents or bicycle accidents in Bellevue, Washington and need assistancewith:

The serious injuries a person can suffer from these types of collisions can havesignificant and long-lasting impacts on a person’s life. The amount of damages aperson may be entitled to will vary depending on the specific circumstances, includingtheir background, medical history, whether they had any pre-existing similar problems,and the nature and scope of the activities that are impacted by their injuries. For

example, a stiff/sore neck from whiplash suffered by an office worker might be amoderate inconvenience. While the same injury in someone who is a professionaldancer, and the injury prevents them from dancing, would be a much more significantimpact and likely entitle that person to a higher damage award.

Sorting through these issues and the associated headaches of dealing with theinsurances companies is what I do. I would be happy to help navigate through a difficultexperience.
