Premises liability is an intricate field of law and our team at Van Law Firm strongly urges you to obtain legal representation from a firm that has experience handling such cases.
Property owners have an obligation to ensure their property, especially a commercial establishment, is safe for others. If you were hurt on someone else’s property, you may be able to hold the property owner liable and seek compensation to cover your losses.
A Yakima WA premises liability lawyer can handle your compensation case while you recover from your injuries.
A Yakima WA Premises Liability Lawyer Can Recover Damages for You
Because a property owner has a duty to provide for the safety of people who come onto their property, the owner can be held legally responsible if they created or ignored an unsafe condition resulting in an injury or death. Their negligence may entitle you to recover economic and non-economic damages.
Economic damages are monetary losses that are verifiable, including:
- Medical expenses
- Child care
- Lost wages and benefits
- Home services expenses
- Future medical costs
Non-economic damages are non-monetary losses, including:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Mental anguish
- Loss of enjoyment
- Loss of consortium (companionship with a spouse)
There are no caps on economic and non-economic damages in Washington state.
Unfortunately, death can occur because of negligence by a property owner. If you lost a loved one, we offer our sincerest condolences. We understand this is a painful time, and we want to help by handling your case so you can grieve and heal. Wrongful death damages generally cover medical bills, lost income, and funeral expenses.
Our law firm has over 100 years of collective experience handling personal injury and premises liability cases. We can handle the legal aspects of your case and guide you through the legal process to help you recover the compensation you and your family deserve.
Benefits of Having a Yakima WA Premises Attorney on Your Case
Hiring a lawyer to represent you provides you with the benefit of having an advocate who will fight for your best interests. Insurance companies have their own lawyers, and a victim without representation could be at a serious disadvantage.
At Van Law Firm, we pride ourselves on representing victims like you so no one takes advantage of them during this vulnerable time. As a client, you would gain several benefits that can help you win your case.
Investigate the Accident
We will rigorously investigate the accident by inspecting the premises and the scene where your injuries occurred. It’s important for us to take note of any dangerous conditions or anomalies that can cause harm to people on the property.
Causes of injuries on a property include:
- Slippery floors
- Dog bites
- Defective products
- Inadequate lighting
- Falling objects
- Negligent or insufficient security
- Exposure to chemicals
- Weak structural integrity
To strengthen your case further, we will gather evidence such as video surveillance, photographs, inspection logs, safety records, incident reports, witness accounts, and expert opinions.

Calculate the Value of Your Claim
We will calculate the value of your claim by tallying your medical expenses, lost income, and other economic damages you may have lost due to your injury. In addition, we will calculate non-economic damages such as pain and suffering. This will help us determine if any initial settlement offers from the insurance company are fair or not.

Negotiate With Insurance Companies
We will negotiate a fair settlement with the insurance company, especially since an initial offer will likely be low and may not cover your losses. We understand the ins and outs of the insurance system and our team of lawyers has the skills to negotiate a fair settlement on your behalf.
Represent You in Court
If necessary, we will pursue compensation for you by filing a lawsuit and representing you in court. We prepare every case for trial, although most cases settle out of court. We are not afraid to fight for you.

We recognize that not everyone speaks the same language. That’s why we have a multilingual staff that can speak in several languages to communicate with you, including Spanish and Mandarin. A language barrier should not prevent you from communicating with a lawyer.
If you can’t come to us at our law firm, we can come to you. Not everyone has the mobility or the transportation to consult with us. And your injuries may also hinder you from traveling. We will visit you, so you don’t have to worry about coming to our location.
You don’t Pay Us Unless You Receive Compensation
We believe that financial status should not prevent anyone from having legal representation. We work on a contingency fee basis, which means you don’t pay us until we win your case and you receive compensation.
We also offer free consultations and there are no upfront fees. Your attorney will explain how payment works in more detail.
You Have the Right to File a Lawsuit for a Limited Time
You have the right to file a lawsuit for compensation, but you only have a short time to act because the personal injury statute of limitations in Washington is three years, according to RCW § 4.16.080. The same deadline applies to wrongful death.
We will work to meet the statute of limitations, so you do not lose your right to pursue legal action to get the compensation you deserve.

These guys are amazing. Helped me throughout the process. Always there when I need help. Inititailly called a law firm (the one that has lots of ads on the radio), but they declined my case. Van Law Firm accepted my case without a second thought! Kudos to Daniel, my case manager, and Amanda who expedited my payment process. Highly recommended.Milby Mags
Got in an accident at the beginning of the year and they have been awesome, especially with it being my first accident and me being like this. They have been very communicated, stayed in contact with me the whole time, giving me updates when there were any and even when there weren’t and answered any question I had. I would recommend them to anyone. Everyone I have talked to there has been very friendly. I would give them a 10 out of 10.Ethan Gullet
They made sure that my insurance company covered what I paid for them to which included the gap for my car that was totaled. My medical costs were taken care of and reduced substantially so I was able to get more on my settlement. My case manager, Will Garcia, was always helpful in assisting me and answering any questions I had. They really did an amazing job with my case. I would definitely recommend them to anyone in need of this type of legal help. Most lawyers do not help you with the recovery of the car and rental etc. They are amazing.Teresa Cuthbertson
