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.

Court of Appeals: Div I – No Insurance Coverage

Black v. National Merit Ins. Co.

The Black family was severely injured in a crash with a vehicle driven by Marissa Goodell, a teenager who was allegedly driving a pickup truck in an unsafe manner.  Ms. Goodell was killed in the crash.

Tracy Radcliffe was also in the in the truck with Ms. Goodell.  The Blacks alleged that Ms. Radcliffe was also at fault in causing the crash.  Ms. Radcliffe’s parents had a liability auto insurance policy and Ms. Radcliffe was an “insured” under the policy because she was a family member.

The Blacks claimed that Ms. Radcliffe’s policy provided coverage to them because Ms. Radcliffe was riding in a truck that was insured by another insurance company.

The Court of Appeals rejected this argument, holding that an interpretation of the policy in that manner would mean that Ms. Radcliffe’s insurer would provide coverage for every vehicle in the universe.
