Helping Ordinary Citizens Fight Corporate Power
Insurance companies serve a vital role in our society — seeing to it that when people suffer tragedies, they can get the care they need without being left destitute. But they are also businesses. Their top priority is the value of their stock. The less they pay in each settlement, the more their stock price goes up.
Whether a car accident causes whiplash, a spinal cord injury or wrongful death, the insurance company will constantly look for ways to justify lowering the total amount of compensation. Without a lawyer, the injured individual or grieving family can be left helpless against this exploitation.
At Morse Bratt Andrews & Terry LLP, we handle a wide variety of accident claims, including:
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Trucking and Tractor-Trailer Accidents
- Boat Accidents
- Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents
DUI/DWI (Driving Under the Influence)
If you have been arrested for Driving under the Influence (DUI/DWI) or have received a citation for DUI in Washington State and you need DUI defense, you are facing one of the most serious traffic offenses that can be handled in District or Municipal Courts. If your BAC level is .08 or greater, you are facing two cases that you must defend: an administrative and a civil case in which the Department of Licensing /Department of Motor Vehicles seeks to suspend or revoke your license, and a criminal case in which you are subject to mandatory jail time (even for a first offense) for up to one year, a fine up to $5,000, license suspension, SR 22 (high risk) insurance for 3 years, ignition interlock installed on your vehicle, you could be subject to deportation if you are not a United States Citizen as well as other mandatory penalties. Additionally, a DUI conviction is the one of the only offenses that cannot be removed from your record in the future.
You can be charged with DUI even if you are BELOW .08. The law provides that you cannot drive a motor vehicle if you are affected by drugs or alcohol. You can even be charged for DUI if you are driving after taking your prescribed medication by your own doctor. If you are a minor, you can be charged with DUI if you have a BAC level of .02 or greater. Having the right lawyer is critical.
A DUI arrest can result in consequences that greatly impact your life, including jail, costly fines, suspension of your driver’s license, expensive classes and treatment, ignition interlock device requirements, and more. DUI laws and those enforcing them, are getting stricter each year. You should never handle a DUI alone.
