FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 21, 2010- Seattle, WA - Seattle attorney Christopher M. Davis, has authored a new book written to help accident victims Washington State understand their legal rights. Washington Injury Law: A Reference Guide for Accident Victims is designed to help accident victims and their families navigate the legal process when they, or a loved one, have been seriously injured in any kind of accident in Washington State. Every day, accidents happen and people are injured because of the negligence of others.
Each year, there are 6 million car accidents in the United States, from which over 5 million people are injured each year. In addition to car accident victims, over 800,000 receive medical attention as a result a dog bite injury. The CDC has estimated that as many as 4.5 million are bitten by dogs annually. Sadly, the vast majority of these victims rarely know their legal rights when injured in an accident due to another person's inattention or carelessness, especially when there are medical bills to pay. Personal injury accident law does not only cover car accidents but also includes other types of injuries such as dog bite attacks, injuries to children or minors, medical malpractice, and nursing home neglect or abuse."
"I wrote the book because accident victims need a good resource to help them understand their legal rights, learn how to get their medical bills paid, and hold those who caused their injuries responsible," said Davis. "If one person is able to better understand their legal rights and what they are entitled to, I consider this book a success."
In Washington Injury Law, Davis offers basic facts insurance coverage and dealing with insurance adjustors; outlines what juries will be looking for in an accident case; explains the litigation process from filing the lawsuit through mandatory arbitration; offers insight what every accident victim should be doing in the pre-litigation and pre-mediation processes; and answers basic questions of the legal process once a case goes to trial and what is entailed throughout that process. Davis also helps accident victims understand the pros and cons of hiring an attorney.
"In the last few years my office has seen a huge increase in the number of accident victims looking for legal help", said Davis. "Working from the premise that ‘knowledge is power,' I hope the book will help educate the public and improve their ability to protect victim's rights and ultimately achieve justice."

The other four books in the series are The Ten Biggest Mistakes That Can Wreck Your Washington Accident Case and Little Kids, Big Accidents: What Every Parent Should Know About Children & Accidents, When the Dog Bites: The Essential Guide to Dog Bite Claims in Washington State, and Wrongful Death in Washington State.
