Motor vehicle accidents in the Yakima Valley area and elsewhere occur in the blink of an eye and can cause serious injuries. The Washington State auto accident attorneys at the Mariano Morales Law Firm work on a wide variety of cases involving motor vehicle accidents. We know how to deal with insurance companies by preparing the strongest case possible.
Our firm always uses a “head-to-toe” checklist when we contact clients every four to six weeks to assess their condition. Our primary goal is to ensure clients in the Yakima Valley and elsewhere are getting the best possible medical treatment for their injuries. Because we prepare our clients’ cases so thoroughly, we settle about 95 percent of our personal injury cases before even filing a lawsuit. Most of our cases involving a lawsuit also settle as well. We never force our clients to settle. Instead, we are able to get the best offer from the insurance company on the table and then it is the clients’ decision. We always advise our client whether we believe the offer is fair for their case.

We review every medical record
Our attorneys, based in Yakima, carefully read through every medical record related to a client’s case. We also review a client’s symptoms every four to six weeks. At times this diligent follow-up will reveal symptoms not mentioned in the medical records. Often, this occurs because a patient does not mention the symptom to his or her doctor based on a belief that it isn’t related to the auto accident. What appears to be a soft tissue damage case might in fact involve a traumatic brain injury. We pride ourselves on thoroughly and skillfully reviewing every record of every doctor. Our first priority is to make sure our clients get the best medical attention for their injuries.
