A life-changing injury or the unexpected and sudden death of a loved one is a stressful, and often chaotic time. The immediate focus is on receiving the best care possible, and picking up the pieces of the emotional devastation caused. Rarely do families consider the counsel of an experienced attorney during these times; and yet, finding good counsel can be as critical as finding the best medical team to treat your injuries.
Northwest Trial attorneys believe individuals and families need lawyers who can defeat “policy defense” arguments by insurance companies; i.e., arguments that insurance policies do not cover a particular type of carelessness, negligence, event or occurrence. We believe individuals and families need lawyers who understand the “ins and outs” of complex insurance coverage…lawyers who know more about insurance law than the insurers do. The business model of insurance companies is to hold on to premium monies as long as possible. Our business model is to convince insurers that the price of not paying fair and just compensation exceeds the return of sitting on the premium monies.
At Northwest Trial, we represent homeowners and condominium owners who have had contractors or developers build bad homes or condominiums for them. Oftentimes, more than half the battle in these cases is “getting to the insurance.” Our experience representing commercial and public works contractors is invaluable in assisting homeowners and condo owners in prosecuting cases against developers and builders.
