    • This is the story of Jennifer Bragg. Jennifer and her husband Jacob sustained severe spinal injuries in a bus accident. Although they live in Washington, while vacationing in Las Vegas a shuttle bus they were riding in was struck at high speed by a car. Complicating matters, the driver of the car was from California and the shuttle bus was covered by a Nevada policy. Even though there was a million dollars of coverage, the insurance companies were giving them the runaround. Before too long, Jennifer and Jacob decided to hire a local Seattle personal injury law firm to help them with their claim. Fortunately for them, they found the Dubin Law Group. We made the insurance company accept responsibility, but they still tried to get out of paying, arguing the injuries and multiple surgeries were all a result of prior conditions. It took almost three years of fighting and preparing for trial, but finally, the insurance company relented and paid its full $1 million limits. Jennifer and Jacob are still recovering from their injuries, but the money they recovered will enable Jennifer to open her own salon and begin teaching other stylists as well. It has been a great privilege getting to know and work with Jennifer and Jacob, and we're glad we are able to get them some #justice.

    • This is the story of Darren Kady. Darren was severely injured on the job because someone was careless and left an open hole on a mezzanine 10 feet above a concrete floor. Even though the fault was clear, none of the companies involved was willing to accept responsibility, and even once we persuaded them to accept fault they denied Darren's life-altering injuries. They even sent private investigators to spy on Darren and his family Fortune, Darren and his wife Tammy found the Dubin Law Group. We shielded the Kadys from the worst of the insurance company nonsense and assembled a team of lawyers and experts to prove Darren's case and get him a fair recovery. Finally, after three years, and less than a month before trial, the insurance company, realizing it was going to lose, agreed to pay $3 million to Darren and Tammy. Money can't undo the harm that the Kady's suffered, but at least they have some financial security for Darren's future care. It has been my great honor to get to know this lovely family and to help them get some #justice.

    • This is the story of Brett Sherrod. Brett suffered severe injuries to his spine when another commercial truck driver lost control of his 18-wheeler and barreled head-on into Brett's commercial dump truck. Even though the fault for the collision was clear, the insurance company refused to make a reasonable offer of settlement. They even used private investigators with drones to spy on Brett and his family during his recuperation from surgery. Fortunately for Brett, he found us at the Dubin Law Group. We assembled a team of attorneys that included our talented co-counsel Karen Koehler and her staff. Together, after a long and difficult pre-trial period, we were able to recover the insurance limits of $1 million just weeks before trial. Shortly after that settlement, we got Brett an additional $100k from the underinsured motorist coverage on the truck he had been driving. Brett suffered permanent impairments as a result of this crash, and no amount of money makes that ok, but the money will help Brett get the future care he needs, and move on with his life. It has been a great privilege to represent Brett, but even more, it has been a great pleasure getting to know him, and I consider him a friend.
