The field of personal injury law encompasses a diverse range of claims. Depending on the details of your injury, a negligent person, employer, property owner, or other party may be liable for your losses. A personal injury lawyer helps injured people pursue compensation from the party or parties responsible for their injuries.
No two personal injury cases are the same. It is important to speak to a personal injury attorney about how you were hurt, who may be held liable, and how you can seek damages.

She has decades of experience handling a variety of personal injury claims. She has built a reputation for excellence in Olympia and is committed to helping her clients pursue the best possible outcomes in their cases.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Motor vehicle accidents are among the most common types of personal injury cases. Drivers make life-or-death decisions every day. When a driver drives aggressively, or while distracted or intoxicated, the lives and wellbeing of others on the road are put at risk.
Over the course of her decades-long career, attorney Marya Fuller has helped hundreds of clients in a wide range of motor vehicle accident cases, including:
These cases can be incredibly complex, and require the knowledge and skill of a seasoned auto accident lawyer. Fuller & Fuller, Attorneys at Law, has the experience and resources needed to protect your best interests and effectively present your case.
Premises liability claims, such as slip and fall cases, center on the negligence of property owners who have failed in their duty to ensure a safe environment for those who visit their premises.
Parties who may be responsible for slip and fall accidents can include property managers, homeowners, landlords, and store owners. Causes for slip and falls can vary, from poor lighting and broken stairs and to inadequate security and dog attacks.
In all these cases, negligence is the driving principle. This can often be complicated to prove in slip and fall cases and requires an experienced attorney.
The term “catastrophic injury” describes injuries that have serious, long-term, life-altering consequences. Catastrophic injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries, can cause permanent disability, prevent the ability to work full-time, and require lifelong medical care.
When representing clients who have suffered catastrophic injuries, our personal injury lawyer will assess and document the overall impact the injury had on their lives. Not only is it important to evaluate how the accident has affected the victim’s current life and livelihood, but it is also necessary to determine how that person’s life will be affected years into the future. In addition to unexpected physical injuries and limitations, catastrophic injuries often impact a person’s family life, professional life, and ability to enjoy life.
The sudden, unexpected loss of a loved one is a devastating event. It is especially difficult when that loss is the result of someone’s negligent behavior. While no compensation can make up for someone’s untimely passing, damages in a wrongful death claim can ensure that those responsible for the death are held accountable. In addition to helping families stay financially afloat after an unexpected loss, these cases can sometimes help prevent similar tragedies from occurring in the future.
Wrongful death claims are often very complex and rely on the thorough investigation and meticulous preparation of an experienced attorney. A reputable personal injury lawyer will examine the evidence surrounding your loved one’s death, such as police reports, medical records, and witness statements.
In many cases, expert testimony is necessary to prove negligence. At Fuller & Fuller, Attorneys at Law, we can arrange for medical experts, accident reconstructionists, financial analysts, and other experts to review the evidence and, if needed, provide testimony to support your wrongful death claim.
Every Personal Injury Case Is Unique
Although the foundation of all personal injury cases is similar – someone’s negligence caused an injury – the circumstances surrounding the injury are unique, and can significantly influence how the case should be handled. Some factors that affect personal injury cases include:
- The investigation process
- The type of evidence that must be gathered
- The potential negligent parties
- The amount of compensation that may be needed
These factors are important. If you have been hurt because of the careless or reckless actions of someone else, you need a personal injury lawyer who has experience handling and winning the specific type of case you are facing.
In this regard, each law firm, like each personal injury attorney, is different. It is important to evaluate a lawyer’s record of successful cases to ensure they are familiar with the type of injury you have suffered.
