After an accident or personal injury, you will probably be contacted by the insurance company of the party who was at fault.
The insurance company has only one goal, to deny or minimize your compensation as much as they possibly can. They employ insurance adjusters and attorneys to make sure it is as difficult as they can make it for you to receive the compensation you deserve.
Hiring an experienced personal injury attorney helps you gain an equal footing with the insurance company and ensure you have an advocate fighting to defend your rights.
The law firm of Wiener & Lambka has reached a level of legal expertise in the field of personal injury law that has allowed us to fight for literally thousands of clients over the history of our firm. As your attorney, you can expect us to:

Every year, thousands of people are involved in automobile accidents with consequences ranging from property damage to personal injury and death. Regardless of severity, any accident will likely entail a damage claim with an insurance company. While not all auto accidents are alike, it is wise to have a lawyer on your side regardless of perceived fault.
Slip and Fail accidents refer to personal injury cases where a person slips or trips, and sustains an injury on someone else’s property. These cases generally fall under the broader category of premises liability claims. If the accident occurs on property owned by another person or business, that owner can be held liable for causing or failing to prevent injuries caused by torn carpeting, flooring irregularities, poor lighting, faulty stairs or wet floors.
Medical malpractice cases are generally sought by patients who have been injured or otherwise harmed by poor medical treatment or a mistaken diagnosis by a doctor, nurse, medical technician, hospital or some other form of medical technician.
After an accident, and pending successful arguing of your personal injury claim, you are entitled to both economic and non-economic damages.

Your chances of receiving the maximum compensation for your personal injury increases significantly when you hire a knowledgeable and experienced personal injury lawyer in Bellevue, WA. It is advisable to contact an attorney as soon as possible following an injury caused by an accident.
Expect the defense attorneys to viciously challenge your claim that their client acted negligently and subsequently inflicted injury. They will attribute the damages to prior incidents, blame psychological factors, or play down the severity of your injuries, suggesting that they aren’t nearly as bad as the hurt person claims.
They act in this way because they want to discredit your claims for compensation. The law requires that the party bringing suit, referred to as the plaintiff, proves that the care they received was “reasonable and necessary” as a direct result of the incident.
Often, defense attorneys will call upon medical professionals to testify against your claims that the care you received was indeed necessary.
Insurance companies will try to offer you a paltry compensation amount as soon as they can specifically to avoid reaching a just and appropriate settlement with you once you have contracted legal counsel. The sooner you bring us on board, the sooner we can begin working on the unique characteristics of your personal injury case.
Our consultations are completely free of charge and without obligation to retain the firm. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by making a simple phone call or sending us an email.
