We Understand Personal Injury Law
The law relating to personal injury is vast. It encompasses various situations in which a person suffers an injury due to the negligence of another party. Suppose you or any member of your family suffered personal injuries from the negligence of others. In that case, you need to partner with a Stanwood personal injury lawyer with a perfect understanding of personal injury law and the law of negligence.

The burden of proof lies on you, the plaintiff, and you must prove that the other party, the defendant, was indeed negligent. At Rico Tessandore, we will help you build a strong case that will place you in a good position to show that:

  • The defendant had the duty of being reasonably careful. For instance, if a personal injury results from a driver’s negligence, the law requires that any driver exercises the duty of reasonable care to a level that an average driver would do. Therefore, every driver owes the duty of care to all other road users, including individuals in other vehicles, their passengers, cyclists, and pedestrians.
  • The defendant did not exercise the duty of care to the required reasonable standard and was thereby in breach of care duty. Here, the law uses a reasonable person’s conduct as the parameter for determining whether the defendant exercised the duty of care to the required standards. The law will seek to determine if any reasonable driver would have done the same under similar circumstances.
  • The negligence or conduct of the defendant directly caused the injuries suffered by the plaintiff. For instance, if you suffer a dislocated joint after falling off a defective staircase, you must prove that your arm’s dislocation resulted from the defective staircase and not any other event.
  • You suffered direct losses or injuries. The plaintiff is entitled to compensation for any misfortunes sustained due to the defendant’s negligence, including property damage, injuries, monetary loss, pain, and suffering, among others.

He went way above and beyond my expectations. I can't say enough good things about him and his staff.
