How do I know whether I should pursue a personal injury claim?

The only way to be certain as to whether you have a case, is to meet with one of our experienced personal injury associates for a FREE consultation. We will fully evaluate your case and advise you on your legal rights.

Do I really need to hire an attorney or should I handle my own personal injury claim?

In most cases, hiring an injury attorney will yield better results, even for seemingly minor claims. At Tario & Associates, P.S., we stand by our injured clients every step of the way.

Remember that an insurance adjuster works for the insurance company, not you. If your insurance company has already presented you with a proposed settlement, you need to know whether it is fair, if your claim is worth more, or if you should hire an attorney to force the insurance company to pay you the fair and full compensation you deserve. It is not unusual for our attorneys to be able to achieve monetary recoveries five to twenty times what an insurance company has offered.

How much do I have to pay to pursue a claim?

There are no upfront costs or fees paid by our clients to pursue an injury claim; we provide representation on a contingency fee basis for personal injury cases. While you will not incur any attorney fees if you do not win your case, Washington law requires clients to reimburse the law firm for out-of-pocket expenses. Our firm advances out-of-pocket costs for our injury clients and does not require our clients to pay any of these costs up front. When cases are concluded with a monetary recovery, our firm is repaid out of the recovery for the out-of-pocket costs we have advanced.

If you or loved one was injured, you have enough to worry about. Let us give you Peace of Mind. Call the experienced Bellingham personal injury lawyers at Tario & Associates, P.S. today.
