Bill Coats has a 10.0 rating with Avvo, their highest rating granted. He is a member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, which allows in only lawyers who have won multi-million dollar verdicts or settlements for their clients. Throughout his two decades of experience, he has conducted over 50 trials. 

Those who have been injured understand the emotional and financial impact they and their families must endure. They feel the effects of the medical bills, not being able to work, and many other treatment expenses that can come throughout the healing process. It's hard to quantify physical pain and psychological anguish, but these are inevitable effects of accidents and things that no individual or family should bear alone. The Bellingham attorneys at Bill Coats Law understand the fears and uncertainties that serious injuries bring. When victims choose Bill Coats Law, they choose advocates who are skilled and experienced in getting fast, full, fair settlements and verdicts. 

The law gives accident victims the right to recover financial compensation when someone is hurt due to another's negligence. Also, spouses and close family members can be eligible for financial help as well. In many cases it's an insurance company who insures the responsible party is supposed to pay to even things out. However, sometimes there is a dispute about who is at fault and/or to what degree. Litigation may become necessary to show the insurance companies that injured victims won't settle for less than they deserve. This is where it is critical to have a legal advocate ready to fight for you.  

In fact, insurance companies typically offer low initial settlements. It's their hope that the injured party, often desperate for money and feeling overwhelmed by the accident and recovery process will take what they can get. This strategy doesn't work when the injured victim knows what his or her case is really worth. When Bellingham lawyer Bill Coats takes on the insurance company, it sends a message that they must negotiate in good faith or risk facing a substantial judgment in court.
