I get information from the court, law enforcement, and medical providers to build successful injury claims
I work closely with the San Juan County Court, law enforcement agencies, and medical providers to gather information about accidents, and to build compelling claims that provide full settlements and verdicts for my clients. I depend on the help of:
San Juan County Superior Court oversees civil cases including personal injury claims for my clients. I interact with the court regularly to file documents and handle claims in which negotiations with the insurance company don't produce a full settlement offer, bringing the claim to trial.
San Juan County Sheriff's Department responds to accidents that occur in county limits, and produces collision reports that I need to build complete personal injury claims.
The Washington State Patrol is the repository for all of Washington State's collision records. These reports are written for each vehicle collision resulting in injury or death of any person, or damage to the property of any one person to an apparent extent of $1000 or more. For every client, I obtain a copy of the WSP's traffic collision report, which gives detailed information about a crash that I can use to strengthen my clients' claims.
The county's major medical facilities are PeaceHealth Peace Island Medical Center and Orcas Medical Center, which provide the records and billings I need to build a full claim for my clients, and get them the insurance settlement or verdict they need to secure their financial future.
It is important to get in touch with an experienced San Juan accident lawyer right away
I can best help injured people when they contact me immediately. When I am consulted soon after an accident or injury occurs, my clients have a huge advantage.
- I can immediately begin gathering evidence while it’s fresh.
- I can communicate with the insurance adjusters from the very beginning.
- I can start identifying potential witnesses, review police reports, and begin building a comprehensive case file that will be valuable when it comes time to negotiate.
I offer a no cost, no obligation consultation
One advantage I offer injured people is the chance for a no cost, no obligation consultation where I will learn more about your situation, answer your questions, and assess your legal options. Also, I work on a contingency fee basis, which means that there is no up-front cost to work with me. All of my legal fees will be paid at the end of the claim, so there is no downside to giving me a call and beginning the process of your financial recovery.
