ISSAQUAH LAW GROUP - PERSONAL INJURY LITIGATION LAWYERS

Issaquah Law Group - Personal Injury Litigation Attorneys

TRUST: Personal injuries are personal. Which is why the attorneys at ILG treat every client and every case differently. Because they are different, and extremely personal. ILG was founded on the principle that strong client relationships are the key to successful legal representation and strong relationships are built on trust. Trust that you will be heard. Trust that you will be protected. Trust that every effort will be made to see justice done in your case. The singular goal of every ILG attorney is to earn and preserve that trust.

EXPERIENCE: ILG attorneys have a broad base of litigation experience to draw on in all Federal and State courts from on-the-ground investigations to Supreme Court appeals and we bring this experience to bear on behalf of our clients in personal injury and wrongful death claims arising out of motor vehicle accidents, bus versus pedestrian accidents, defective and dangerous products, medical malpractice, slip/trip and fall accidents, and catastrophic losses due to fire.

LOCATION: We are located on the Eastside in Issaquah, convenient to Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland, Renton, Sammamish and North Bend. However, we provide legal services in King County, Pierce County, Snohomish County and throughout the entire state of Washington.

In addition, through The Amateur Law Professor Blog and LinkedIn postings, we share pertinent opinions and decisions of the Washington State Supreme Court, as well as the pertinent opinions and decisions of the Washington State Courts of Appeal so that our clients can be as update to date on cutting legal issues as we are.

Washington Legal Roundup – Division I

Boguch v. The Landover Corporation

Geoff Boguch wanted to sell waterfront property in Hunt’s Point.  He hired the Landover Corporation (Landover) to list the property.  It didn’t sell right away and Landover added an aerial photograph of the property to the Internet with incorrectly drawn boundary lines.

No one offered to buy the property for about two years before it was noticed that the aerial photograph was inaccurate.  Mr. Boguch eventually hired another company to list the property and sold it for substantially less than he had asked.  Mr. Boguch sued Landover because he believed that their negligence in putting the wrong image up had made it impossible to sell at a higher price.

The trial court had dismissed Mr. Boguch’s claims on summary judgment because he did not bring forth evidence showing that Landover’s negligence had actually caused the property to be unsellable at the higher price.  The Court of Appeals affirmed, but held that attorney fees for Landover were only available for claims that Mr. Boguch brought under the contract for listings services.  The tort claims (for allegedly breaching the duties of real estate agents) were not subject to attorney fees.
