FAQ – Choosing an Injury Lawyer
The attorneys at Dean Standish Perkins & Associates understand that accident victims in the Seattle area have a wide range of options when it comes to choosing an experienced Seattle injury lawyer. However, choosing the right injury lawyer who can protect your rights and win just compensation is critical to the outcome of your spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury or other personal injury lawsuit, and can substantially affect the ultimate impact that your injury has on your life. As a result, it is important to take the task of choosing a Seattle injury attorney seriously, and make an informed decision to rely on an attorney who has what it takes to get what you deserve.
Here are some important qualities to consider when choosing a Seattle injury law firm:
- Personal injury experience. No matter the severity of the harm caused, your case will be pursued as a personal injury claim in Washington. An attorney with a broad background in general injury torts will possess a wealth of experience in holding defendants accountable for injuries caused by negligence. The Seattle personal injury attorneys at Dean Standish Perkins & Associates have handled a wide range of injury claims arising from every type of incident, from products liability to premises liability to motor vehicle accidents.
- Experience dealing with insurance companies. Many catastrophic injury claims require extensive dealings with insurance companies, making it important to work with an attorney who has particular experience in this area. Our attorneys work directly with powerful insurance companies to obtain settlements that compensate our clients for all of the costs resulting from their injuries.
- A successful track record. While favorable results can never be guaranteed – and you should never trust an attorney who claims to guarantee them – a successful track record may speak to a particular attorney’s effectiveness at settling and litigating Washington personal injury claims. At Dean Standish Perkins & Associates, we have successfully settled more than 5,000 personal injury claims since 1999 alone, including numerous million-dollar settlements.
- An in-depth understanding of SCI/TBI. While a lawsuit for a spinal cord or traumatic brain injury is pursued in much the same way as any other personal injury claim, these injuries are particularly devastating emotionally, and present the victim with a lifetime of unique physical and medical challenges. Many of these issues are not immediately apparent to attorneys without specific experience helping individuals with these types of injuries.
Our attorneys have extensive experience handling cases involving SCI and TBI. They understand and can effectively communicate the factors that play into these types of cases, and they have helped numerous individuals obtain the substantial financial compensation necessary to cope with serious spine and brain injuries.
