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.

WA Legal Roundup - Div 1: LLC's need attorney to litigate; Edmonds excess broadband okay for private use; SOL for bad faith starts ticking at entry of judgment.

In Dutch Village Mall v. Peletti, the owner of the mall attempted to sue a tenant. The problem: Corporate entities can't appear pro se, they HAVE to have counsel. My favorite part is the Court basically saying you can't incorporate, then expect to have all the perks without any of the detriments. Its a good read on a lot of the policy behind it. Whether it stays that way given the Supreme Courts recent slew of first amendment jurisprudence equating a corporation to a person remains to be seen. Given that the corporations that the SC likes to benefit tend to be large and need lawyers anyway, I don't see a change coming down the line.

The City of Edmonds case came down saying the city could issue bonds to pay for fiber optics. The main purpose was to provide the gov't with internet access and to allow wireless meter reading systems. The side benefit is you can hook up the homes that have the fiber to a broadband system. This helps with the costs. However, because the primary purpose was the meter reading, its okay to issue the bond. Very interesting read if you like technology.

Finally, Farmers insurance has to deal with a bad faith claim. The backstory involves an apartment fire that really hurt a little girl. There was a candle left burning, and there were inadequate smoke detectors in violation of landlord obligations. The rejection of the claim was happening in 2002 and 2003, the bad faith suit was filed in '08. The stipulated judgment against the insured (17M, paid with 600k out of pocket and an assignment of the bad faith claim). Held that the claim starts running from January 2007, when the stipulated judgment was entered into.

Congratulations to Bob Dawson, attorney for the little girl.
