Tacoma, WA asked in Personal Injury and Car Accidents for Washington

Q: My brother in law got ran over what are his options? He developed health problems that doctors can't diagnose

The responsible driver ran him over and hit multiple cars. We are not sure what types of compensation he is eligible for, and we do not know if a DUI test was performed on the responsible driver. The responsible driver only has liability insurance. What type of lawyer should he get?

A: He should talk to a personal injury firm, but ideally one that also does some criminal / DUI work.

They will be able to pursue maximum compensation for him, and also guide him through the criminal process and obtain information for him so he understands how the case is being handled on the criminal side.

A: There's a lot to unpack here. You want to call a personal injury attorney. You'll want to see what insurance policies are out there to pay for all of this. It's worth your time to give a personal injury attorney a call.
