"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."
