We do not allow insurance agents to intimidate or push our clients around. We act as your advocate and ally with one goal in mind: getting fair compensation for your injuries. Our firm will:

Slip and fall accidents belong under a branch of personal injury law known as premises liability. These cases deal with injuries and damages arising from dangerous or hazardous property conditions.
If you fell because an owner failed to keep their premises reasonably safe, you can pursue your losses with a claim against the owner, manager, or tenant’s residential or commercial property insurance. You can also take action with a premises liability lawsuit if necessary.
Our Ellensburg slip and fall attorneys can help you seek compensation for the following:
Slip and fall injuries can be serious, and you may need extensive and ongoing medical care. Our team can help you recover your current medical costs and pursue adequate compensation for your necessary future treatments. Medical damages may include:
We can recover your lost wages and employment benefits if you cannot work because of your slip and fall injuries. In addition, if you suffered a permanent or disabling injury that will interfere long-term with your ability to make a living, we can seek compensation for your lost earning capacity.
Our attorneys can seek the cost of repairing or replacing any personal items damaged during your accident, such as laptops, cell phones, or jewelry.
If you need help to take care of household tasks you usually perform, we can seek the cost of these services. Replacement services may include childcare, lawn care, and assistance with cooking, cleaning, laundry, and transportation.
Slip, trip, and fall injuries can be fatal. If your loved one passed away from a fall injury, our lawyers can help their personal representative (executor) act on behalf of the surviving family members. Wrongful death compensation may include medical bills, funeral and burial expenses, and the deceased’s lost income, support, and services.

We cannot give you an average slip and fall settlement amount because every injury claim is different. Your available damages will depend on many factors unique to you and your case, including the extent of your injuries and how long you will be out of work.
What we can do is promise to identify and fight for every cent owed to you or your loved one. We take the time to get to know our clients, understand their needs, and educate them about their options and rights. Supporting you and aggressively seeking the awards you deserve (including going to trial when necessary) is more important to us than settling your case quickly for less.
When you work with us, we will put your best interests first and seek the maximum compensation possible. Our client-centered approach has earned us a reputation for providing compassionate representation that gets real results. We have won numerous multi-million-dollar settlements and verdicts for personal injury victims. Our slip and fall accident awards include a $187,000 settlement for a client injured on municipal property.
To hold another party liable for your losses, we must establish the cause of your accident. Some hazards in slip, trip, and fall cases include:
Liability for your accident rests with the party who owns (or was in control of) the property where you fell. This could be a commercial or residential property owner, a tenant, or the owner/manager of a business. To demonstrate that they are financially responsible for your accident, we must build a solid case proving the following four elements of negligence:
Our slip and fall lawyers serving Ellensburg can investigate your accident to determine the cause of your injury. Our team can obtain any official incident reports documenting your fall, visit the scene of your accident to take photos and collect physical evidence, speak with witnesses, and track down any available surveillance video.
We will use this information to get to the bottom of what caused your fall and prove that another party is financially liable. We work tirelessly to hold at-fault parties accountable so that our clients do not get stuck paying for damages they did not cause.
Our premises liability lawyers are not afraid to take on powerful business owners or even government entities if they are at fault for your injuries. We assist with slip and fall accidents occurring at:
According to RCW § 4.16.080, you generally have three years to file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit in Washington. The clock starts at the time of your accident or your loved one’s death.
If you can’t reach a fair out-of-court settlement, you must take legal action before the deadline expires. If you do not, it will reduce your bargaining power because the court will no longer allow you to pursue your case. As a result, you may get left with an unsatisfactory settlement or denied claim with no options for legal recourse.
Our slip and fall attorneys can help you get started right away. We will work through your claim or file suit before time runs out.
