Yelm Personal Injury Lawyer

When you get hurt because someone was careless, where will you turn? Please call a Yelm personal injury lawyer from the Ladenburg Law team.

We’d be happy to meet for a no-cost, no-obligation review of your case. After listening to what happened, we’ll inform you of your legal rights. It’s possible you could be eligible to pursue compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and suffering.

We Work with Car Accident Victims, Malpractice Victims and More 

Our lawyers work with clients who have suffered a wide range of injuries due to someone else’s negligence.

We have experience with the following types of cases:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Nursing home abuse
  • Slips or falls on someone else’s property
  • Defective products

In certain situations, the other party may not have had careless or malicious intentions but may still be liable for what happened to you. This is known as strict liability. An example could be a dog owner who didn’t know their pet was dangerous.

No matter what happened, there is no risk to reach out to one of our lawyers and share your story.

Understanding Liability 

Liability is another way of saying “who’s responsible here?”

Even if it seems obvious that you’ve been a victim, it’s not always clear or easy to prove that the other person was at fault. This is particularly true if you have a claim against a doctor or a property owner, who will come to the table with their own legal representation. A defendant may try to claim the accident wasn’t their fault or that you caused your own injury. (If it turns out you are partly at fault, you may still be eligible for compensation thanks to Washington State’s contributory fault law.)

For this reason, we recommend you work with a seasoned personal injury attorney who can build your case and prepare to fight for fair compensation in court.

Do You Have a Valid Case?

To be clear, just because you’ve been injured by someone else doesn’t mean that filing a personal injury claim is the right option. Consider the following questions:

  • Did the person who injured you owe you a duty of care? (For instance, other drivers owe it to other drivers to follow traffic rules. Property owners owe it to customers to keep their premises safe. Etc.)
  • Did the person break that duty in some way? (Examples could include a driver speeding recklessly, a doctor failing to order standard diagnostic tests, or a pet owner failing to restrain their dog at a public park.)
  • Were you injured as a result? (It’s not enough that you “could have” been hurt by someone’s carelessness. A personal injury claim is reserved for victims who have been harmed.)
  • Did you incur damages because of your injury? (In general, our firm accepts clients who have suffered substantial damages due to their injury including medical bills, disability, lost wages, pain, and suffering.)

If you answered “yes” to these questions, it’s time to call a personal injury lawyer.
