Personal Injury

At the Hester Law Group our Washington Personal Injury Attorneys have over a hundred combined years as aggressive advocates for injured victims. Sometimes cases must go to trial, but sometimes they can be resolved by agreement of both parties. The most important decision an injured victim can make is to hire an experienced personal injury attorney - someone who can negotiate a settlement but is also willing to go to trial, if necessary. Insurance companies know how to approach injured cyclists, drivers, and pedestrians when they are the most vulnerable - we know how to keep them honest. The biggest mistake you could make is to negotiate and accept a settlement from an insurance company without speaking to an experienced attorney first. We will hold them and their negligent clients accountable by being ready and able to take your case to the jury and get you the results you deserve. We are committed to fighting for the compensation our injured clients deserve.

We are trial lawyers. Hester Law Group attorneys are experienced in identifying all possible liable parties.  Sometimes more than one negligent driver causes a cyclist to fall off the road. We’ve sued passengers who contributed to vehicle collisions, and we have even sued backseat drivers who took action causing our innocent client to sustain significant injuries.  Insurance claims get more complicated every day so it is important that your attorney has the experience necessary to litigate your claim. Casey Arbenz, Lance Hester, Brett Purtzer, Wayne Fricke, and Monte Hester approach each case in a way that attempts to account for every at-fault party.  Then, these lawyers begin implementing a litigation strategy designed to optimize each client’s case. At each step of the case, our Washington Personal Injury Attorneys will keep you updated on the status of your case and involve you in any major decisions.

Here’s a sampling of the personal injury cases the Hester Law Group attorneys have handled in the past:

·         Wrongful death due to another’s negligent driving

·         Head & Brain Injury

·         Spinal Cord Injury

·         Cyclists injured by negligent drivers
