Identifying Negligent Parties and Holding Them Accountable
Many personal injury claims are not as clear-cut as they seem initially. Without thorough investigation and an understanding of liability law, preliminary findings might result in failed attempts to hold an innocent individual or company accountable. That error could have catastrophic consequences and limit the compensation you receive.
For over 75 years, the attorneys at The Walthew Law Firm have successfully identified negligent parties and settled and/or litigated complex personal injury claims against those negligent parties for our clients throughout Western Washington. A third-party liability claim must be filed against the persons or companies that negligently caused the injuries.
An experienced and detail-oriented personal injury attorney can be your best asset in holding a third party accountable for liability that caused you serious injuries or the death of a loved one. For help, contact our Seattle-based law firm at 206-812-2997 or toll free at 888-534-5255.
Working Hard to Identify the Responsible Party
Construction sites are rife with dangers that are inherent in the daily operations of a building project. While extra safety measures are often employed, hardworking professionals continue to be injured. Although contractors or subcontractors are often presumed to be responsible, close examination ultimately reveals in many cases that a defective piece of construction equipment actually caused the serious injuries. With hard work and diligence, a seasoned attorney can find that a supposed construction site accident claim was also a product liability case.
Delivery Drivers Facing Risks on the Road
Delivery drivers often suffer injuries in car and truck accidents through no fault of their own. A normal workday can become a life-changing event if they are seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident. If there was a defective part in the car, a product liability suit can be filed against the manufacturer. If the car was not properly maintained by a mechanic other than someone working for the employer, a personal injury suit can be filed against the company that improperly repaired the vehicle.
Your third-party liability claim suffered while on the job can also become a workers' compensation matter. Depending on the severity of the injuries and how long you are out of work, you may also be in need of representation for a Social Security Disability claim. Our firm is in the unique position to handle all three aspects of the law, both separately and together.
