“I used Grant for an auto accident. He was a joy to work with through the whole process. When a problem came up he fixed things right away and didn’t stall. He was very professional and quick to answer any questions I had and was knowledgeable about what was to come and what was a reasonable request. He went above and beyond my expectations. It was a great experience overall.”

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you take medical malpractice cases?
Medical malpractice law for injured persons is one of the most complex and difficult areas of law — this is why very few Washington personal injury attorneys are willing to take on these cases. We have successfully pursued numerous medical malpractice cases for our clients. We are a small, boutique law firm helping people who have suffered catastrophic injuries or death. For this reason, we only consider handling medical malpractice cases that involve severe injury to a patient and that also include extended hospitalization or death from medical negligence.
Do I have to pay any money up front?
No — you will never pay any attorney fees until we make a successful injury claim against the at-fault drunk driver in your case.
I’ve been seriously injured as a result of an accident. Can you help?
Yes, our firm takes on many types of auto accident cases, including those caused by an intoxicated driver. We typically meet with injured people at no cost. During this meeting, we’ll want to hear about your case, introduce ourselves, and determine if you’re a good fit for our office and expertise. Call (360) 253-3667 today to learn more.
Can I still receive damages if the drunk driver was uninsured or had low insurance limits?
Many insurance policies include uninsured or underinsured coverage. Your own insurance company would pay for damages caused by an uninsured drunk driver or a drunk driver with insufficient insurance to cover your claim.
Can you guarantee I’ll win my claim?
No, we can never guarantee any specific outcome for any client. However, we do pledge to use our experience and expertise to maximize fair money damages for every client.
We get to know our clients and we care about them. We’ll work hard to present your claim in a way to deliver an outstanding result. We want you to be treated fairly by the insurance companies and put your case in the best position for an excellent outcome.
How long will my case take to complete?
Every auto accident case is different. Cases involving claims against drunk drivers can be extremely complex. Generally speaking, expect about 12-24 months to completely resolve your case. Throughout the entire process you’ll be kept informed about your case and we are available to answer your questions. We focus on your needs.
Making sure you are well-informed about your case and legal rights is a top priority.
Should I talk to the driver’s insurance company?
Normally, we advise our clients NOT to give recorded statements to the adverse insurance company. Insurance adjusters are trained to use scripted questions and any recorded statements may give an inaccurate view of what you’re trying to describe.
Please feel free to contact us before giving a recorded statement to any insurance company.
After an auto accident, who will pay my medical bills?
You likely have Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage as part of your auto insurance. This is your own insurance and will normally pay the medical bills up front. In most cases PIP (not your health insurance) will pay medical costs associated with a car accident.
When we represent clients in any auto accident claim, we assist with helping getting medical bills paid promptly.
Is it important to get photographic evidence?
Yes. Video and/or photographic evidence is very important when pursuing injury claims against drunk drivers.
In addition to reviewing evidence, our office may also hire accident investigators to assist us in proving your case.
How much is my injury case worth?
Every case is different and your case valuation depends on a variety of factors including types of injury, number of injured body parts, the severity of the injury, length of recovery, and any permanency of the injury. Learn more about how your injury case is valued.
