Who’s Responsible If Someone Hurts Themselves On My Property?

Posted on August 25th, 2014

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again…the law can be complex and confusing.  This is especially true in the realm of personal injury matters.  By their very nature, these matters mean a person has been injured and someone must legally assume the blame or responsibility for any injuries caused.  Placing responsibility on a party is often not readily or easily accomplished. The Phillips Law Firm never wants it clients or injured persons to be left in a state of confusion.  This is why we’re dedicating some time once a month to examine personal injury scenarios and explain where… [Read More]

Insurance Bad Faith Claims

Posted on August 22nd, 2014

According to Woody Allen, “There are worst things in life than death.  Have you ever spent an evening with an insurance agent?”  Yes, insurance agents and insurance companies often get a bad wrap.  This is because many insureds, or persons covered by insurance, believe they are unfairly dealt with when they submit a claim under their policy. Unfair denials, poor settlement amounts, and lack of communication are just a few complaints many of us have when we are forced to deal with insurance carriers.  In this light, the term “bad faith” may sound like a perfect phrase to use when… [Read More]

Drunk Driver Steals Car, Collides with Valet and Bus, Then Stops in Front of SPD…What Was He Thinking!?

Posted on August 21st, 2014

It’s that time again when the Phillips Law Firm practices its dubious honor of highlighting a member in our community whose actions make us all cringe.  They make us cringe because the actions are unsafe.  They are careless.  They are foolish.  They place people’s lives in danger. Rooted in our firm’s values is a belief in justice.  We believe in it and also work tirelessly to achieve it for our clients.  Our work is simply made more difficult when others act irresponsibly.  To help deter this irresponsible conduct, we believe it useful to emphasize those actions that should be avoided,… [Read More]

ABA Says Lawyers Can Snoop on Social Media Sites

Posted on August 18th, 2014

If you’re headed to jury duty anytime soon, please know that your “tweets” and Facebook posts may have some new followers.  You probably have never met these people, but they sure want to learn all about you…from your age and gender to your thoughts and opinions.  Sound intrusive?  Well maybe, but the American Bar Association (ABA) has recently decided that lawyers can snoop on a juror’s social media sites. The ABA Ruling According to the ABA, it’s now ethical for lawyers to view and examine the publicly available social media posts of prospective and actual jurors.  This means a juror’s… [Read More]

VA Says More than 57,000 Veterans Waiting for Medical Care

A recent internal audit, however, shatters our excpectations as to good and efficient medical care for our veterans; and, it has us angered.  The audit was performed by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and it shockingly revealed… [Read More]

Lake Washington Boat Crash Proves Fatal

Posted on August 13th, 2014

Residents of Seattle and the greater King County area are exposed, daily, to news about dangerous accidents that cause injury or even death.  Many of us instantly assume these accidents pertain to motor vehicles.  The truth of the matter, however, is that we live in the Pacific Northwest where lakes, rivers, and waterways abound.  For us, dangerous accidents are not limited to automobiles.  Accidents involving boats frequently occur and they can also prove fatal. One Killed, Two Injured in Lake Washington Boat Crash On July 16, at approximately 10:30pm, two boats collided on Lake Washington.  The collision occurred just off… [Read More]

Posted on August 7th, 2014

Despite your specific stance on this issue, the legal sale of marijuana is now producing a myriad of issues that Seattle must come to grips with in the name of… [Read More]

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]
