Treating road rash from a motorcycle accident

A motorcycle accident can be frightening for an individual in Washington. Motorcycles, while fun, provide very little protection to the riders. Even in minor motorcycle accidents, a motorcyclist can be severely injured. These injuries can range from road rash to broken bones and brain injuries. In the most serious of cases, a motorcycle accident can result in the death of a motorcyclist and any passengers.

You Can Afford Medical Treatment After an Accident - Video

One of the saddest things I experience as an attorney is when a person comes to see me six months or a year after their accident, and they haven't gotten any medical treatment because they didn't have insurance and they were afraid to go into debt.

Seattle motorcyclist killed when hit by truck

This time of year, the weather in Washington can start to turn cold. As it gets deeper into winter, many people choose not to ride their motorcycles. Motorcyclists face risks whenever they are on Washington roadways. Inclement weather can increase these risks and make it difficult for motorcyclists to ride. However, that does not mean every motorcycle is off of the roads. It is important for drivers to continue to be aware of motorcyclists as they are traveling in Washington state.

When it comes to back pain, I'm right there with you

disk extrusion.jpgIf you've read my book, Maximizing Your Injury Claim (and you should), or if you've followed my blog, you know that I injured my low back in a 2002 rear-end car accident. I received all kinds of treatment, including chiropractic and massage, acupuncture, physical therapy, and epidural steroid injections. I even had a surgeon who offered to perform surgery on my lower back. I considered the surgery, but eventually, the pain subsided and I was able to resume my fairly active lifestyle.

Filing a Lawsuit - When negotiations fail

lawsuit.jpgMost of the time, if your claim is good, a negotiated settlement can provide the best opportunity to compensate you for your injuries. Of course, money never makes what happened to you okay, but for the most part, it's all the law has to offer, and it certainly can help. Sometimes, however, the insurance company refuses to make a fair offer to settle your claim. In those cases, we have little choice but to file a lawsuit. In this chapter, I will discuss how a lawsuit gets filed, and we will explore the risks and benefits of taking your case toward trial.

Increase your uninsured motorist coverage. Please!

auto insurance.jpgA few months ago I sat down with a man who was looking into a personal injury claim on behalf of his wife. She had been driving in Mukilteo when a drunk driver crossed the center line and hit her head on. She suffered multiple injuries, but the most severe injury was to her ankle. She had already undergone several ankle surgeries and she was looking at a long and painful recovery. It was likely that she would suffer a permanent disability as the result of this incident.

Signs of brain injury after a Washington Car Accident

brain injury.jpgI have been representing injury victims for a long time. I have seen all kinds of injuries, but few can be more devastating than a brain injury. You can suffer a brain injury in a car accident even if you don't hit your head on anything, and even if you don't lose consciousness. Often a traumatic brain injury (TBI) will go undiagnosed for some time after a car or motorcycle accident. This delay in diagnosis and treatment can worsen the impact of the injury and make the recovery more difficult. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, it's important to determine whether a brain injury has taken place.

Posting on social media can ruin your Washington personal injury claim

social_icons.jpgIf you're like me, you love social media: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vine, Foursquare, Google Plus. You name it and I've probably posted there in the last twenty-four hours. Social media is a great way to stay in touch with friends, engage in community or political activism, discuss current events, and share thoughts and ideas. It is also one of the tools the insurance company will try to use to defeat your injury claim.

Hit by driver high on marijuana - Do I have a case?

drivingwhilestoned.jpgRecreational marijuana may be legal in Washington, but driving under the influence is still illegal. Even if a driver is below the legal limit, being high could impair a driver's judgment resulting in an accident.
