“Clients are people

Personal Injury Lawyer in Tacoma, Washington

If you don't have an injury lawyer, collecting on a legitimate personal injury claim in Tacoma can be challenging and complex. “Party of the first part” “plaintiff/defendant” “tort”; the jargon alone can be very confusing. Legal procedures can be a maze. Endless forms and hearings are just plain stressful. Insurance companies seem to be in the business of turning you down. The red tape can make you feel hopeless and depressed.

Knowledgeable and competent legal representation can make all the difference. Bryan Stubbs is an injury lawyer in Tacoma who is compassionate and dedicated to helping you get the compensation you deserve.

What Does “Personal Injury” Cover?

In a nutshell, personal injury refers to any physical injury someone sustains due to another person’s negligence. Personal injury cases range from dog bites to brain injuries and even wrongful death. If you feel that your injury was caused by someone else’s actions or failure to act, give us a call.

Why Can’t I Handle My Own Case?

Personal injury cases are tightly regulated, and failing to follow even a single regulation could result in your claim being denied. Here are three things to think about when deciding whether to hire a personal injury attorney:

  • Statute of Limitations: The time that you have to file a claim is strictly controlled by law. In Washington state, the clock starts running on the day you are injured and expires in three years. During the legal process, you might be required to file certain motions or documents within a specified narrow period of time.
  • Government Liability: If you are filing against a governmental agency, special rules and limitations apply. Expert knowledge of these regulations could mean the difference between success and failure.
  • Comparative Negligence: Few personal injury cases are completely black and white. In most cases, the injured party did something to contribute to the injury, even in a very small way. Washington state law requires courts to consider the comparative negligence of the injured person on a percentage basis and reduce the award accordingly. So if you are found to be 10% at fault, your damages will be reduced by 10%.

Specialized Areas of the Law

While we handle a wide range of personal injury cases, we also have specialized expertise in three related areas of the law. If you need representation in any of these types of cases, don’t hesitate to give us a call.

Workers compensation claims apply when you are injured at work or develop an occupational disease such as carpal tunnel syndrome. Depending on the specifics of your incident, you might qualify for medical payments, lost wages, vocational retraining, or even permanent partial or total disability. We understand how frustrating and scary an on-the-job injury can be, and we know how to get you the maximum compensation that you deserve.

Social security disability is a complicated minefield of forms, doctor visits, and other red tape. While it is possible to navigate the application process on your own, Social Security Administration data shows that your odds of being approved increase dramatically if you have a competent social security lawyer. With so much on the line, at a difficult time in your life, hiring an attorney removes a great deal of the stress.

Car accident claims can be incredibly stressful. Not only do you need to worry about your own injuries, lost wages, and other financial worries, but you also need to have your car repaired or replaced. Fighting with insurance companies, making sure everything is properly filed, and navigating the legal rules while trying to recuperate can feel overwhelming. We can handle everything for you, allowing you to focus on healing.
