Russell & Hill, PLLC

Recovering from an injury is often a difficult process. The aftermath of suffering a personal injury doesn’t have to be hard. Our team of Auburn personal injury attorneys is here to make your recovery as smooth as possible while you recover from your injury.

People who have suffered an injury often experience stress regarding finances after their accident. Insurance companies can be a pain to deal with, as they often try to give you as little compensation as they can get away with, hoping they can just get you to go away. It’s important that you have legal representation if you’ve been injured in an accident that was caused by another party’s negligence, as we will land you the fairest amount of financial compensation possible.

There are a number of incidents that can result in a personal injury. Some of these include:

  • Auto accidents
  • Workplace injuries
  • Injuries caused by a third party’s negligence

Personal Injuries Caused by Auto Accidents

According to a 2017 study, a car accident occurs every 4 minutes in the state of Washington, and a person dies due to an auto accident every 20 hours. That means the odds are against you avoiding ever being in an auto accident, or suffering a personal injury due to one. Whether you are at fault or another driver was responsible for causing your accident, our team of experienced Auburn personal injury attorneys are here to offer you advice regarding your case.

Workplace Injuries

No job is without its risks. In the state of Washington, some of the most common causes of workplace injuries are:

  • Caught in, under, or between – Caused when part of a body is crushed, pinched, or squeezed by machinery in the workplace
  • Falls from elevation – Includes falls from ladders, roofs, or other heights
  • Falls at the same level – Caused by slips, trips, or falls that occur on a flat surface
  • Struck by or against – Impacts caused by a stationary or moving object
  • Work-related musculoskeletal disorders to the lower extremities – injuries to knees, ankles, feet, hands, encompassing back strain, tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and other nerve, joint, and muscle injuries
  • Musculoskeletal injuries of the upper body – injuries to the back, neck, and arms caused by overexertion, kneeling, squatting, lifting, awkward posture, gripping, vibrations, and other repetitive motion

Personal Injury Due to Negligence

You never know when a slip and fall is going to suddenly occur and cause a serious injury. You can file a personal injury claim when another person’s negligence is responsible for your injury. Some examples include:

  • Landlords who fail to make appropriate repairs to their rental properties
  • Workplaces that don’t take measures to remedy known OSHA infractions
  • Owners of aggressive animals who fail to keep their pet tied up

Negligent parties are usually found liable if you can legally prove that they were aware of an issue and failed to remedy it, which resulted in your injury.
