Why You Need a Bellingham Personal Injury Attorney

Protecting your rights following serious injuries

Anyone who has ever been seriously injured knows the financial and emotional impact of such an injury. In addition to the obvious expense of medical bills, lost wages and other treatment expenses can take a toll on any family’s budget. And the physical pain and psychological anguish you and your family can experience is a burden that no one should have to bear alone. The Bellingham personal injury attorneys of Adelstein, Sharpe & Serka LLP understand the fear and uncertainty a serious injury can cause. Here you can count on a lawyer to give personal attention to your case and to be available to answer questions, giving you and your family much-needed peace of mind.

The challenges of personal injury claims

At Adelstein, Sharpe & Serka LLP, we have represented clients for serious injuries due to:

  • Automobile accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Truck accidents

If you have been injured due to the fault of another, the law gives you the right to recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages and pain and suffering. Moreover, your spouse may be able to recover compensation for loss of companionship or consortium. The party responsible for your injuries — or more often its insurance company — is responsible for paying this compensation. But if there is some dispute as to who was at fault or as to the value of your claim, litigation may become necessary.

Insurance companies routinely offer low initial settlements in the hopes that an injured party who is desperate for money will accept before finding out what his or her case is really worth. But when a Bellingham injury lawyer becomes involved, it sends a message to the insurance company that they must now negotiate in good faith or risk facing a substantial judgment in court.
