EXAMPLE CASES
CASE A: Amanda was a passenger in a motor vehicle roll-over accident. She was severely hurt and suffered a traumatic brain injury, which required a lengthy recovery. When she was well enough, she consulted with a lawyer, who indicated that she didn't have a case. Fortunately, she decided to get a second opinion from the Washington traumatic brain injury attorneys at Craig Swapp & Associates. After carefully looking at the facts of the case, we quickly saw that she did have a very good case. The end result was a settlement for over $1 million.

CASE B: A family of three was waiting at a bus stop when they were struck by a car driven by an 80-year-old driver who had fallen asleep at the wheel. Tragically, the young son was killed, while his mother and sister were severely injured. Allstate Insurance hired an aggressive lawyer to defend their insured driver and offered the family a minimal settlement. The lawyer argued that the driver had 'blacked out' and therefore was not negligent or at fault. The horrific nature of this case made major headlines and attracted a great deal of media attention. As the family's Washington personal injury attorney, I was able to turn the tables on Allstate and get the family a settlement award in excess of $1.5 million which allowed them to put their lives back together after such a horrible tragedy.

CASE C: A 72-year-old was driving as part of his job, delivering flowers for a floral shop. His delivery truck was struck by a drunk driver, killing him instantly. Our Spokane wrongful death attorneys at Craig Swapp & Associates were able to help the family recover $544,000 for this wrongful death.

CASE D: a 48-year-old cyclist was safely riding his bike with traffic on the shoulder of the road when a driver (driving impaired with cold medication) struck him from behind. Our Spokane personal injury attorneys filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the driver's insurance company and were able to collect $141,000 for his family.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

I wanted to provide a voice for those seeking justice and accountability from big business, which typically puts profits over people.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

We believe that the more a client knows about their legal matters, the better they understand the important role of a Washington auto accident attorney in reaching a satisfactory conclusion to one's case. However, we believe that fundamentally it is unwise for one to represent oneself in personal injury and bankruptcy cases. We have seen too many situations where individuals are taken advantage of and abused when not represented. As a general rule, we strongly recommend that people with auto accident cases and insolvency issues always retain an experienced personal injury or bankruptcy attorney.

With personal injury cases, profit-driven insurance companies are overjoyed to work with an injured victim who seeks to represent themselves, since that person has no idea the scope of their case. The insurance company will eagerly exploit that lack of knowledge and experience. Adjustors are good at offering the victim of a minimal settlement and then pushing the victim into accepting it. People with good cases often contact us after they have negotiated their own settlement, and are shocked to learn that they possibly walked away from thousands of dollars. As experienced Spokane auto accident lawyers, we know how to build a strong case for our clients and get them the fair compensation they deserve, whether it is through tough negotiations, arbitration, mediation or trial.

When one faces financial hardship situations, he or she often thinks that their financial troubles require immediate bankruptcy protection. However, we see that measure as a last resort. Our experienced Salt Lake City bankruptcy lawyers at Craig Swapp & Associates are expert at using the law to end harassing creditor calls, restructure debt, stop foreclosure, modify mortgages, and stop repossessions, garnishments and lawsuits. These types of services and results are difficult, if not impossible, to achieve without legal representation. Because of the legal complexities involved with bankruptcy law, we never recommend a self-help approach without first consulting an experienced legal professional.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

See answer above.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

We do this routinely in situations where it is safe for a client to represent him or herself.

Craig Swapp & Associates: Personal Injury Lawyer servicing UT, ID, WA

I started my legal career as a car accident attorney with Siegfried & Jensen and eventually chose to pursue other options to advance my professional skills and abilities.

All life experiences have helped me be a better lawyer. Both formal and informal education have been key to becoming a pragmatic legal advocate that gets satisfactory results for my clients.

I have been fortunate to be able to see the 'big picture' and stay cool under pressure when I fight for what is right and true. I have always enjoyed working with my clients and my associates at the office.

Personal interests:

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends - we love to golf, water ski, snow ski, and a variety of other activities that we can do together. I am an avid reader and love to travel when my schedule permits.
