If You’ve Been Injured in an Accident in Tacoma, Our Lawyers Can Help You Recover
If you are like most people who have been injured in an accident, you find the after-effects of the accident overwhelming. The medical bills keep coming in; and, no matter how hard you try, you can’t get anyone to care about the accident as much as you. All you want to do is move on with your life, but just like the accident itself, you are finding that your current situation is beyond your control.
We’re here to help. Fuller & Fuller is a team of Tacoma personal injury lawyers who are dedicated to helping accident victims recover. But, more than just a team of lawyers, we are a family who truly cares about those who are suffering due to others’ negligence and carelessness. For more than 40 years, we have been helping individuals and families recover just compensation, and we can use our experience to help you and your family.
When Is the Right Time to Speak with a Personal Injury Lawyer?
You have been involved in an accident. You have been injured, and you have suffered financial and personal losses. Your losses are continuing to accumulate, and you are not sure if your life will ever truly be the same. Is it time for you to speak with a personal injury lawyer?
Yes, without a doubt. If you have been injured in any type of accident, you should speak with a personal injury lawyer about your legal rights as soon as possible. You can benefit from an attorney’s advice the moment you get into an accident. There are many circumstances in which accident victims are entitled to financial compensation. If you are entitled to compensation for your injuries, it will help to hire a lawyer to handle your claim.
At Fuller & Fuller, we represent accident victims in Tacoma and the surrounding areas, including Lakewood, University Place, Fircrest, and other communities in Washington. Whether you live here, you work here, or you were just visiting, we can help you, and we encourage you to contact us right away.
How Much Will It Cost to Pursue My Claim?
In every personal injury case we handle, our legal fees are contingent on the success of our client’s case. In other words, if you do not receive financial compensation, we do not get paid. Not only does this make it possible for you to pursue your claim without paying monthly legal bills, but it also means that we are 100% invested in the outcome of your personal injury claim.
How Do I Know If I Am Entitled to Financial Compensation?
So, now you know that you should contact a lawyer as soon as possible and you know that you won’t have to worry about paying our legal fees while your claim is pending. But let’s take a step back: In what types of circumstances might you need to hire a personal injury attorney?
Our attorneys represent individuals and families in cases involving all types of accidents in and around Tacoma. If you, your child, your spouse, your parent, or your friend has been injured as a result of any of the following, you should call our Tacoma office promptly:
Many of our clients are individuals who have been injured in car accidents in the Tacoma area. A car accident can change your life in an instant, but it can take months (if not longer) to deal with the insurance companies. At Fuller & Fuller, we rely on decades of experience dealing with the insurance companies to seek just compensation for our clients as quickly as possible. While this usually means negotiating an insurance settlement, we also litigate our clients’ cases.
We handle cases involving all types of accidents, from rear end collisions to serious collisions involving drunk drivers. We approach every case with the same level of commitment and with the same focus on securing maximum compensation for our client.
A commercial truck may have caused your accident. While truck accidents may seem similar to car accidents, they actually differ in a number of important ways. From determining the cause of the accident to determining who is responsible, truck accident cases tend to be much more complex than “ordinary” car accident claims.
At Fuller & Fuller, we have experience helping truck accident victims secure just compensation. We can launch an investigation to identify all of the parties that are liable for your injuries, and we can use our experience to pursue the compensation you deserve.
Motorcycle accident claims also present some unique challenges. Unfortunately, the bias against motorcycle riders means that they tend to get blamed for their own injuries. But, we know that most motorcycle owners ride well within their limits, and that it is usually factors beyond their control that cause them to go down.
Our attorneys represent riders who have suffered brain injuries and other types of injuries in all kinds of accidents. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured, we encourage you to contact us as soon as possible.
Bicycle or Pedestrian Accident
Walking, running, or riding your bike shouldn’t be dangerous. But, unfortunately, it can be. Pedestrian accidents and bicycle accidents happen all too often in Tacoma, and accident victims’ injuries can be severe.
If you were hit by a car, truck, or SUV while riding your bike or on foot, your case will most likely involve a claim against the driver’s auto insurance policy. However, you may have other claims as well, and our attorneys can investigate to make sure that all of the appropriate parties are held accountable.
Slip & Fall
In addition to vehicle-related accidents, we also represent clients in cases involving slip-and-fall accidents. Slips and falls can result in serious injuries, and the recovery process can be long, difficult, and expensive. In Washington, when property owners and businesses put their guests and visitors at risk for injury by allowing dangerous conditions to exist on their premises, they can often be held legally accountable.
Our attorneys handle slip and fall claims against all types of property owners and businesses in Tacoma. If you or a member of your family was injured in a fall at a hospital, nursing home, store, office, hotel, motel, sports or entertainment venue, government building, or private residence, we can talk to you about seeking just compensation.
Negligence by a medical professional can have devastating consequences. Depending on the age and condition of the patient, the effects of malpractice can last a lifetime, resulting in major costs for ongoing care, disruption of your family’s ability to pay bills, and much more.
Fuller & Fuller has extensive experience with medical malpractice claims in the Tacoma area. We have helped individuals and families recover the compensation they deserve for serious injuries and fatalities caused by medical errors such as:
- Birth injuries
- Emergency room errors
- Failure to diagnose heart attack
- Failure to diagnose cancer
- Military medical malpractice
Medical malpractice claims are often complex and hotly contested by the defendants and their insurance companies. After all, a birth injury resulting in cerebral palsy or shoulder dystocia can require decades of expensive care. With the significant recoveries at stake in these kinds of claims, you need to entrust your case to a firm with the experience and tenacity to protect your rights and pursue the compensation you deserve.
The worst-case scenario for any accident is the death of a loved one. When this happens, you need a law firm that is committed not only to pursuing the full compensation your family needs to move on, but providing you with compassion and emotional support in your time of need.
A wrongful death case will not bring back the beloved individual you lost. However, a verdict or settlement in your favor will help with some of the costs your family is dealing with as a result of the accident, as well as make up for some of the financial, emotional, and other losses you experience as a result of your loved one’s passing.
As a family law firm, Fuller & Fuller takes the loss of your family member seriously. We have helped many clients in and around the Tacoma area pursue just compensation and justice for the loss they have suffered.
What If I Can’t Come to Your Office?
If you cannot visit our office in Tacoma, that’s okay. In fact, many of our clients are too injured to leave the hospital or comfortably leave their home. One of our attorneys will be happy to meet with you at home or in the hospital at a time that is convenient for you.
What Constitutes “Just Compensation” for Personal Injuries in Washington?
Broadly speaking, the purpose of a personal injury claim is to make you whole – or at least as whole as possible – based on the specific losses that you have incurred (and that you will incur in the future) as a result of your injuries. This includes:
- Medical Expenses – If someone else is responsible for your injuries, you are entitled to recover the costs of your diagnosis, treatment, surgeries, rehabilitation, therapy, and prescriptions resulting from the accident.
- Loss of Income – You are also entitled to recover any wages, salary, tips, benefits, and other compensation that you have lost (or will lose) as a result of your injuries. This includes loss of income in the future if you are unable to work.
- Pain and Suffering – Accident victims in Washington are also entitled to financial compensation for various categories of non-financial losses. One of these categories is “pain and suffering.” Pain and suffering encompasses the physical and psychological effects of accident victims’ traumatic injuries, and compensation (or “damages”) for pain and suffering can be substantial.
- Other Non-Financial Losses – Along with pain, suffering, and emotional distress, individuals seeking compensation for personal injuries in Tacoma can recover various other types of non-financial losses as well. These include “loss of consortium.”
