Practice Areas

WORKERS COMPENSATION

There are two types of work related claims. First is an industrial injury, which is a sudden traumatic event that happens in the course of employment. Second is an injury called an occupational disease, which is a disease acquired due to an on-the-job exposure, including repetitive trauma. Furthermore, if a worker dies as a result of his or her industrial injury, spouses and/or dependent children are entitled to death benefits and may be entitled to benefits even if the worker died from an unrelated cause Workers’ compensation is a mechanism for providing wage replacement (time-loss compensation), medical care, vocational services (please see the section on vocational services), and other services to victims of workplace related injuries and occupational diseases. The insurance premiums that fund these benefits are paid by both the employer and workers like you.

Car Accidents

Of many different types of accidents people may be involved in, car accidents are the most prevalent ones today. A seemingly minor car accident may not only result in a physically or emotionally injured person or even a whole family, but also a very costly medical care, which can be really difficult to handle nowadays. Because of drunk driving, poor driving skills, or car malfunction these problems might surface and trying to find a solution to this on your own, might be very stressful and unhelpful. Relying on an insurance provider to offer a fair settlement which would allow you to cover all medical costs and other damages instead of seeking help in a law firm might not be the best idea.

Construction Accidents

Construction sites puts many workers as well as the public at risk, making them the largest at-risk areas for serious injuries.
While construction workers should always work in a safe environment, accidents occur for a variety of reasons, including: falling from a roof, ladder or other heights, tripping over tools and equipment or other construction materials not properly secured, and negligent procedures.
As a professional and responsible construction worker, you know the dangers of the work are at part of every day. That is why you take precautions, wear proper safety equipment and do everything according to the rules. Even after all of these, unfortunately, you can still find yourself in a dangerous situations resulting in various injuries.

PERSONAL INJURY

Personal Injury Law is based on the principle of accountability. Many personal injury claims arise because of a driver’s negligence, recklessness behind the wheel, ranging from speeding or cell phone use to drunk driving and more. The legal term “personal injury” covers many different types of civil actions, but generally means an action for an injury, whether physical and/or psychological, to oneself as opposed to one’s property. A personal injury claim can arise out of an intentional act, but more commonly we represent those who were harmed by the negligent acts of others.

DOG BITES

Being involved in a dog bite attack is a really traumatic experience that can harm a person physically, emotionally and financially. Unfortunately, most dog bite accidents go unreported and the victims are not compensated for their injuries. Even if you do report it to insurance companies, they usually offer only 20% of the total value of the damages. This is a real issue because there is no one to represent you in court.

An individual injured by a dog has the right to sue the animal’s owner for financial, physical, and emotional damage as long as the individual was not provoking the animal. If you or someone you know has suffered from a dog bite, you may be entitled to reimbursement for your injuries. A dog bite accident lawyer at Tacoma Injury Law Group can represent you in your dog bite case.

Wrongful Death

It is important to note that only certain people may bring a claim, and this is determined by their relationship with the deceased person.
