Auto Accident
If you have experienced an injury from an accident that was not your fault, you may be entitled to compensation.
This injury may have occurred from a car accident or other type of injury on private or public property. You may be the driver of a car that is hit by another vehicle, or you may be a bicyclist or pedestrian that has been injured. Maybe you were shopping at a retail store and were hit by falling merchandise that was not secured properly. There are many possibilities regarding personal injury, and when an injury occurs, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, loss of income as well as your physical suffering. Our dedicated legal staff is ready to stand up and fight for your rights.

It is common for those who have suffered from personal injury to not assert their rights. Many people feel bad or guilty about suing for damages thinking that they are being greedy. The truth is that the laws exist so you can get the money you deserve after an injury. It is about legitimate compensation for what you have gone through. This compensation is not simply a matter of being reimbursed for your current medical bills, but also the bills that will incur in the future. We understand the long-term financial implications for a wide variety of injuries that you are not likely to be aware of.

Never settle for a sum of money an insurance company may offer you. They are attempting to settle a case to their advantage, and the amount will undoubtedly be much lower than you are entitled to. Only an attorney, working for you and your interests, will fight to get all of the compensation you are legally entitled to. Never sign any paperwork or endorse any checks offered to you. Simply give us a call for a consultation today, and we can discuss your situation and explain your rights to you.
DUI and DWI
When you are pulled over in your car in Seattle for suspicion of driving under the influence, you are going to need the services of the Budigan Law Firm.
We have extensive experience with all aspects of the law regarding DUI and can give you a chance at getting the best outcome possible.

The state of Washington has become stricter with those who violate the law on DUI, and this also applies to first time offenders. Do not think the courts will go easy on you because it is your first time offense. You can lose your driving privileges and be fined. Probation and alcohol awareness programs are usually a part of the sentence as well. Although the exact punishment will be up to the discretion of the judge, it will also be dependent on the circumstances surrounding your arrest.

In addition to punishment imposed by the courts, a person can lose their job over this type of conviction. Once you are allowed to drive again, your insurance rates will be very large, and this can be true for as long as three years. Of course, this is only if you never have another conviction for DUI. We at Budigan Law Firm can help mitigate the sentence and consequences in your life stemming from a DUI charge.

In order for the Budigan Law Firm to give you maximum assistance after your arrest, you must do your part to help us. When you are pulled over for DUI, always be polite to the officer and present your driver’s license, proof of insurance and your car registration. If you are asked how much alcohol you have consumed, you should always be polite but decline to comment. Answering these questions is never in your best interest. You will have to take a blood alcohol test at the police station, but you are not required to perform field sobriety tests. These tests are notoriously inaccurate and will only make matters worse for you. At your first opportunity, call the Budigan Law Firm here in Seattle and we can begin to assert your rights immediately.
