A Washington attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for three weeks. If you mean in the sense of being sued as the driver, the insurance policy of the car would generally cover the driver, as a GENERAL premise nationwide, if the policy recognizes the driver as an authorized operator...Read more »

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?
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...Read more »
It sounds like you may have an occupational disease. Unless some 3rd party (read: not your employer) was responsible for your condition, you are likely limited to a workers' compensation claim. You don't state whether you still work there or not. The deadline for occupational diseases is...Read more »

A Washington attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. I'm sorry for your ordeal. Unfortunately, it is difficult for an attorney to offer meaningful input here - your situation calls for a medical opinion. As a starting point, you could reach out to med mal...Read more »
A Washington attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for a week. This looks like it could be the matter involving the shooting range, which appeared in a similar post.

A Washington attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. As a GENERAL point, it sounds like it would be a complex matter involving workers' compensation law if you're talking about employees injured in the course of employment. No one could really speculate on...Read more »
Only a Washington attorney could advise about statutes of limitations, but your question remains open for two weeks. That's a long time in any jurisdiction. Statutes of limitations are governed by state law and can vary by the cause of action - and you posted across several categories. As a...Read more »
A Washington attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for four weeks. From the brief description, it isn't clear what the matter involves, as it is posted across several categories.

2 years ago I had a bilateral breast reduction done by a board certified surgeon. My breasts were supposed to be a size D afterwards but are now a large A or small B. Dog ears on both breasts (which I've read can be avoided with proper measurements) & horribly looking scars.
A Washington attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. I'm sorry for your ordeal. It would be difficult for an attorney to answer your question as to "whether you remotely have a chance." Although your description offers details that would be...Read more »
It depends on who is asking her to sign the release. If it is the store's risk management or legal representative, then I would definitely advise her to talk to a lawyer first. Most attorneys do a free consultation (probably by phone) so she can get her specific questions answered.
If you already have a lawyer, no on one here can ethically offer much advice, and certainly wouldn't do anything to interrupt the attorney / client relationship. That doesn't mean you can't call another lawyer and ask for a second opinion of course, that is very common.
You can always make a claim against someone who hits you with a vehicle. If I'm understanding your question correctly, I think your asking whether the father (and therefor his insurance) might also cover your injuries. The answer is "maybe." You need a lawyer to help you figure...Read more »
A Washington attorney could advise best but your question remains open for two weeks.

If you contact an attorney, one of the first...Read more »
My son was struck and killed by a commercial truck whose driver's license was suspended in "the 3rd degree". My son was a pedestrian, and granted he was no in a crosswalk. But shouldn't the driver of the truck at least have been issued a citation for driving on a suspended... Read more »

A Washington attorney could answer this best, but your question remains open for a week. Depending on how the situation unfolded, it could result in assault charges. A criminal defense attorney could offer better insight here than a personal injury attorney. Good luck
I have a 5-year-old medical bill in collections from a previous injury that is in close proximation [on my body] (but not exact) to this auto injury I just had. Will this show up somehow and affect a possible case? It was in another state that I don't have a policy in or residency in.
If a plaintiff succeeds in small claims court and receives a judgment, can the loser (defendant) later file a lawsuit in King County Superior Court over the same matter? This involves an auto accident in which each party blames the other. The matter was heard in King County District (Small... Read more »
This is something a Washington attorney should advise on, as it involves state court practices. But your question remains open for three weeks.
