Personal Injury

If you or someone in your family was hurt because of someone else's negligence, two very important things should happen. The negligent party should be held responsible, and you should be fully compensated for all of your losses.

Your losses may include things that are easy to calculate: medical bills, wage loss, property damage, or any other out of pocket expenses.

 

More importantly, your losses will also include damages that are harder to calculate: your pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, and disability. 

To hold the negligent party responsible and get all of the compensation you deserve, it's important to for you to choose the right lawyers to represent you. We have more than 15 years of experience in complex personal injury cases. 

We have the expertise to ensure that every element of your claim is maximized and that you can be made whole and move on with your life.

We take the steps necessary to maximize your recovery.

Automobile collisions are the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 35. Often, even minor collisions can still have lifelong physical and financial impact on you and your your family.

Once we are retained, we'll fully investigate the collision to determine who the negligent parties are, and hold them accountable. We will act as the point of contact for the insurance company, and fight to make sure that you receive everything you deserve to be made whole.

 

Seattle area traffic was recently ranked as the 14th worst in the country (2019). Whether you live in Bellingham, Everett, Seattle, Bellevue or Tacoma, much of your day is likely spent commuting or running errands for your family. When you are on the road, the expectation is that everyone else is being as attentive operating their vehicle as you are.

Unfortunately, the opposite is often true. Other drivers are increasingly distracted by their cell phones, or may be impaired in some other way.

 

If you've been injured in a car accident, contact us today.

We can fight for you.

Injuries caused by a dangerous condition can happen anywhere.

Hazards can lurk wherever you walk or run, whether a puddle in the grocery store, a crack in the sidewalk, or any place inside of a structure. Sometimes, the fall and injury can be caused by a defect in the area you were walking in, or due to broken or inadequate railings or banisters. 

Your fall and injury may have been caused by violations of the building code, faulty constructed or poor maintenance. The dangerous condition that caused the injury could be either an old or a new condition.

 

We have worked on a wide variety of premises liability cases. We've brought suit against municipalities, private property owners, and even a national retailer who created an unsafe condition in a local mall, which lead to significant injuries. 

We enjoy working on these cases because they are often a remarkable mixture of engineering, construction design and medical damages. Injuries stemming from dangerous conditions are a serious matter that are defended vigorously by large and sophisticated corporations and their defense attorneys. 

The defense fights these cases hard, and usually tries to cast blame on the injured person. Because of that, time is of the essence to conduct a thorough investigation and then gather and preserve the evidence. Call us today.

Tragically, vulnerable adults can fall victim to abuse, abandonment, neglect, or financial exploitation. Injuries caused by a dangerous condition can happen anywhere.

This usually occurs without our knowledge and is not discovered until the damage is done.

We entrust our most vulnerable loved ones to nursing homes, hospices and caregivers. We also trust that state agencies, like the Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS), appropriately monitor the companies and individuals they have licensed to provide that care. 

 

Washington State law has a specific legal definition for "vulnerable adults" (RCW 74.34.020) as well as a body of law designed to protect them.

If you believe you are seeing the warning signs of abuse (unexplained bruises or cuts, staff not allowing you to be alone with your loved one, sudden large withdrawals from bank accounts, contact us today. 

 

We are experienced in dealing with theses kinds of cases and know the steps that need to be taken to protect your loved ones and ensure that justice is done. Call us today.

Bicycle Accidents

Contact us today

206 747-1730 | Justin@JRBolandLaw.com 

so that we can talk about your case, and help you put the pieces back together. 

Broken-bicycle-wheel-on-bike-in-accident.jpg

Injuries from bike accidents can be significant and life-altering, from serious orthopedic breaks to traumatic brain injuries.  

Many of us ride bicycles, either to avoid traffic or for fun with our families. When you control all of the variables, biking is fun, healthy and safe. 

Unfortunately, biking can bring you in close contact with negligent drivers and poorly designed or maintained sidewalks, roadways or paths.

In some cases, the accident and injury could have been caused by the bike you were riding, and not the ground you were riding on.  Bike parts can fail because they were poorly designed or poorly manufactured. Often these parts are made at factories overseas that have lax safety standards but still have major brand names stamped on them. The failure of the bike part could be either the originally manufactured part (forks, spokes or frame) or a component that was added later (bike headlight lamp, rack or bag). 

We have worked on scores of cases involving injuries from bicycle accidents. Call us today.

If you think you have been treated unfairly by your insurance carrier, give us a call 206 747-1730

or send us an email Justin@JRBolandLaw.com to see if we can help.

Insurance companies make money by collecting your premiums, not by paying out claims. 

Insurance companies in Washington State have a duty to interact with their insureds in good faith and may not "unreasonably deny a claim for coverage or payment of benefits" (RCW 48.30.015)

Insurance carriers often posture as if their initial coverage determinations are set in stone.

 

We've had success in reviewing personal and commercial line policies and convincing the carriers to revise their coverage determinations to make our clients whole. 

Your insurance carrier has used your years of premium payments to employ a vast claims staff and retain a battalion of lawyers.

 

You should have a lawyer on your side, too. If you sustained a loss of any kind that your insurance carrier has refused to provide coverage for, give us a call.

Wrongful Death

Contact us today

206 747-1730 | Justin@JRBolandLaw.com 

to discuss your case, so that we can assist you and your family in moving forward.   

Wrongful-death-title-with-gavel.jpg

There is nothing worse than losing a loved one because of the negligence of a person, corporation or a governmental entity. 

Holding the wrongdoers legally accountable often means filing a lawsuit for wrongful death. Wrongful death cases in Washington can be both factually and legally complicated. They require a great deal of skill and sensitivity. 

You should carefully choose who will represent you and your family on cases like these.

 

We have worked on a great number of death cases where the responsible defendants were individuals, government actors or large corporations. 

 

Factually, we'll closely examine and deconstruct how the death occurred and question, were the right safety precautions being taken? 

 

Did everyone receive the necessary training?  Was the death a result of a criminally negligent series of events that could have been avoided? Next, we'll examine the legal aspects of the case, and the best way to bring the claim. 

Washington's wrongful death statute (RCW 4.20) is legally complicated, creating unique rights for different classes of family members and beneficiaries. 

That is why it is imperative for you to have an experienced lawyer on your side who has litigated wrongful death cases before. The filing of a wrongful death action is an important first step in establishing accountability for the death of a family member or loved one, and receiving appropriate financial compensation. Call us today.

Assault Battery/
Intentional Torts

Contact us today

206 747-1730 | Justin@JRBolandLaw.com

to find out if you have a case, and if we can help in holding the responsible parties accountable for their intentional acts.  

Woman-being-sexually-harassed.jpg

An intentional tort occurs when one person's intentional conduct (as opposed to negligent conduct) causes harm to someone else.

These torts can often be instances of Assault, Battery, Sexual Abuse or the Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress (IIED). Often, the wrongdoer will have criminal liability in addition to civil liability. 

 

Some lawyers avoid working on these types of cases based on a belief that there will not be any insurance proceeds available. However, there are often third parties, like the owners of the bar or the security company, who may also bear some responsibility for the injuries. 

We have worked on dozens of cases like these and are experienced in identifying all the parties at fault to maximize your recovery. Call us today.

Lapses in the standard of care occur in every different medical discipline: from surgery, to dentistry, to chiropractic care and beyond. 
 

The Puget Sound area is filled with top tier medical facilities from Harborview to Swedish Hospital and the University of Washington's medical centers. However, even the best doctors and nurses make mistakes and fail to live up to the standard of care required by the law.

 

These lapses in the standard of care occur in every different medical discipline: from surgery, to dentistry, to chiropractic care and beyond.
