Personal Injury

Personal InjuryA personal injury means that you have been injured as a result of another party’s negligence or carelessness. Personal injury claims can arise due to many issues involving individuals, businesses, or manufacturers. Motor vehicle accidents involving automobiles, large trucks, motorcycles, buses or even bicycles, are the most common type of personal injury cases, and can result in serious injury, disfigurement or death. If you were injured in a motor vehicle accident, you may be the victim of another driver’s negligence, of negligence in the maintenance of state roads, or of a defective car part. Your legal rights will vary depending on who is at fault.

What Clients Say

  • Ken helped me immensely on two separate personal injury matters. I’d highly recommend him for any injury claim you might have.

    David S., Seattle, WA
  • Before deciding on an attorney to settle my 14 year old daughter's personal injury lawsuit, I considered contacting a few lawyers. However, after meeting with Ken I knew I didn't need to look any further. Ken is honest, easy-going and went the extra mile for us. My daughter's settlement was more than fair and will provide her with opportunities that may not have been possible before. Thank you from both of us!
