If its representative tells you such a statement is required, that person is lying. In Washington, the most common amounts of PIP coverage are $10,000 and $35,000. These days, nearly everyone has a phone with a camera. Even if the damage seems minor and nobody seems to be hurt, it’s never okay just to leave the scene of an auto accident. And believe me, an unrepresented person does not pose a credible threat of a lawsuit.Read More
Bicycle Accident Claim
A total of 762 fatal bicycle crashes were reported in 2012, even though the police recorded only a small percentage of them. Almost 50,000 bicyclists were injured that same year, with 88% of them being men.
Bicyclists are totally unprotected when they get into an accident which is entirely different from their automobile counterparts. The injuries sustained by bicyclists are of a greater severity than those sustained in a car accident.
Regardless of the severity of your injury, the police should be informed. Once they arrive on the scene, provide a statement to them and note the injuries that you have suffered. At the trial or during negotiations with the insurer this information can be used as evidence. The contact number of the witnesses should also be procured. If there is a case of hit and run, you can try to take a photograph of the car’s license plate.
In states following comparative negligence, even when the driver proves that bicyclists was 90% at fault, the bicyclist can still recover 10% of the damages. In states following a modified comparative negligence, the bicyclist will be barred from recovering damages if a driver can prove that the bicyclist was 51% or more at fault. In other states following a modified comparative negligence, a 50% fault on the part of the bicyclist will bar the latter from recovering damages.
Don’t wait too long before making the claim! Start talking with our injury law firm today and let us help you in this process.

I am a pure criminal defense attorney and I take great pride in that fact. Even before law school, my goal was to become one of the best criminal defense attorneys of my time. I realized that goal was achievable the very first time I stepped into a courtroom because advocating for my client gave me a true sense of purpose. Since then, my passion for helping people and defending them against the government continues to grow every day. To me, standing up for a person, who is being prosecuted by the government, is the most honorable act. I truly care about my clients and Im not afraid to let prosecutors and judges know that.My number one rule is that each person deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. And that is how I treat all of my clients. I will never make a client feel like they dont matter. My clients and I review all the evidence and discuss defense strategies together because it is important to me that my clients are well informed and involved in their defense. Having a great relationship with my clients is extremely important to me, which is why I take the time to talk to my clients and build a trusting relationship from the very beginning. My clients trust me with their lives because they know that I will do everything in my power to protect them.
