Do You Feel Safe Driving on SR 522?

Posted on July 16th, 2014

For those unfamiliar with State Route 522 (SR 522), it’s a roadway that basically connects Seattle to the city’s northeastern suburbs.  In September of 1995, a Reader’s Digest article labeled this roadway as one of “America’s most dangerous highways.”  A recent deadly head-on crash on SR 522 perhaps reaffirms this unlikely label.  It also motivates our current question: Do you feel safe driving on this highway? June Crash Results in Two Dead and Two Injured The safety of 522 came under fire, yet once again, last month after an automobile collision left two dead and two critically injured (including a… [Read More]

What the Heck is PIP and Do I Really Need it?

Posted on July 15th, 2014

Every month, the Phillips Law Firm will devote an entire post to the topic of PIP, or personal injury protection insurance.  The reasoning behind this is twofold.  First, our firm is dedicated to helping personal injury victims seek justice.  In a sense, personal injury protection is our middle name. The second reason is that PIP is an insurance related topic.  While many of us quiver at anything insurance related, our firm is brave enough to face the insurance world. We’re also committed and insightful enough to know that the insurance world can be a bit confusing at times.  Confusion is… [Read More]

Ambulance Chaser: One Nasty and Ugly Legal Term

Posted on July 9th, 2014

The legal system and the practice of law is chop full of unique terms and labels.  Many of these are used to describe persons, events, or procedures.  Case law, discovery, house arrest, pleadings, pro se, service of process…all of these represent just a quick sampling of terms embed within the law.  Some terms are helpful.  Some represent procedural necessities.  Some are rooted in Latin while others have developed over time. Personal injury law shares in this general use of terms and labels.  There’s one term, however, that often gathers more attention and intrigue in the personal injury context.  The term… [Read More]

The Duck is Confused! You Don’t Want Fast Claim Settlements

Posted on July 7th, 2014

Aflac Insurance takes great pride in their all-knowing mascot, commonly referred to as “the duck.”  While “the duck” may make for entertaining commercials, we have issue with one of the duck’s most recent accomplishments.  That accomplishment is the duck’s seemingly positive ability to settle an insurance claim quickly…actually in four days.  Take a quick look for yourselves. Why the Duck is Confused The duck, and Aflac for that matter, is confused because the successful settlement of an insurance claim is simply not, measured by the quickness within which that claim can be resolved.  The settlement of an insurance claim is… [Read More]

Nail Polish Leads to Safer Driving? (Part 2)

Posted on July 2nd, 2014

Our last post examined the severe dangers that result from distracted driving.  We concluded the post with a general query as to whether a solution for this very serious epidemic exists.  One man has actually stepped up and created a proposed solution to end all of the distraction.  The gist of his proposal lies in red nail polish and his proposal is receiving increased national attention on an almost daily basis. Red Thumb Reminder Sometimes complex problems are best resolved through simple solutions.  Just ask Steve Babcock.  Babcock is the man behind the Red Thumb Reminder campaign.  He launched the… [Read More]
