Kent law firm offers complimentary consultations to answer questions and help relieve stress

If you’re struck with a personal injury or the death of family member, you’ll suddenly have a lot to deal with. Alongside stress and grief, you’ll likely be navigating the healthcare system, financial administration and piles of paperwork. Speaking to a lawyer may be the furthest thing from your mind, but if you believe someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing caused the personal injury or wrongful death, it’s important to consult with an attorney right away.

“The sooner you connect with an attorney the better. They can offer clarity, help relieve stress, and if you have a case, they can immediately help protect you from confusing communications with insurance providers,” says Rob Iddins, managing partner of Iddins Law Group in Kent.

Iddins Law Group offers complimentary phone consultations, so if you’re unsure if you need an attorney, you can have a free conversation to share your story and find out about next steps.

“We recognize that it’s an emotional time. We treat everyone with compassion, whether they end up becoming a client or not,” Iddins says.

Common causes of wrongful death and personal injury

The definition of wrongful death is when someone dies due to someone else’s carelessness, misconduct or unlawful act. Personal injury is defined as an injury due to someone else’s carelessness, misconduct or unlawful act.

Wrongful death and personal injury cases at Iddins Law Group often stem from the following common scenarios:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Workplace accidents
  • Premises Liability (incidents on another person’s property caused by negligent upkeep, hazards, etc.)
  • Nursing Home negligence
  • Criminal acts

How a personal injury or wrongful death attorney can help:

  • Legal expertise: With their extensive experience with relevant laws, statutes of limitations, and legal requirements, an attorney can help you understand your rights and prepare a strong case for a settlement negotiation or trial.
  • Investigation and Evidence Gathering: Your attorney can interview witnesses, collect evidence and review investigations conducted by other parties. They can start this process when memories are still fresh, to ensure no evidence is lost.
  • Damages Reimbursement: Your claim may include economic damages (funeral costs, lost wages, medical expenses), non-economic damages (mental anguish, etc.) and punitive damages (to punish the guilty party and deter future behavior).

“Punitive damages are extremely rarely granted in Washington State, but your attorney can help you understand your options,” Iddins says.

In addition to their expertise in wrongful death and personal injury cases, Iddins Law Group excels at probate services. For families grieving the loss of a loved one while pursuing a civil law case and beginning the probate process, using a single firm for both tasks can help streamline the process.
