For more than 20 years, the Law Offices of Kevin D. O’Leary, PLLC has fought to get the maximum recovery for injury victims in California and now, Seattle. As a private practitioner and former Litigation Attorney for Shell Oil Company, responsible for offshore platform and inland drilling injuries and environmental matters, Mr. O’Leary has handled very serious personal injuries and litigation.
If you have been injured due to another person’s negligence, you may be facing medical bills and lost wages in addition to mental and physical pain and suffering. You deserve to get compensation from the responsible parties. We help navigate you through the legal process, and provide the aggressive representation you need to achieve a positive outcome.
No matter how you received your injury, our law firm can help. Over more than two decades of practice, we have developed the skills and knowledge necessary to fight for you. We provide legal services primarily in the following areas of personal injury law:
Mr. O’Leary has recovered money and recoupment of all out of pocket medical expenses for accident victims even where an insurance company accident reconstruction expert testified under oath that the impact of the accident was allegedly too minor to have caused personal injury.
In one case where liability was contested, for example, Mr. O’Leary was able to obtain a significant confidential settlement for a student who was injured at a football stadium between two university rivals, due to alleged inadequate security. In another matter, a client was injured by a forklift at a retail chain store. After filing suit and litigating the matter, Mr. O’Leary was able to obtain a settlement of twenty-five times the client’s medical bills. Yet in another matter, Mr. O’Leary was able to obtain thirty times the medical bills for a client who suffered incremental hearing loss due to a gun discharging in a gun store.
Mr. O’Leary speaks Spanish, and in another matter litigated and obtained compensation for an older woman who speaks no English and who suffered serious injury due to her landlord’s negligence maintenance of her apartment.
These are just a few examples. All cases are different and there are no guaranteed results. However, the key is to speak with an attorney immediately before crucial evidence and factual witnesses are lost.
If you have suffered a personal injury, turn to our firm. We do not shy away from complex cases and are dedicated to providing you with the result you deserve. In fact, many clients have turned to Mr. O’Leary for help in the 11th hour. For example, in one case, a client was injured at a restaurant by dangerous food and subsequently needed extensive dental surgery. When faced with a summary judgment motion, his attorney did not continue representation. Mr. O’Leary took the case on the eve of trial, defeated the summary judgment motion, and got the client a settlement that allowed him to get the medical attention, monetary compensation, and peace of mind he needed.
In another matter, a client approached Mr. O’Leary with only one week left on the statute of limitations to bring a personal injury claim. The client had been injured in a serious fall on his boat dock due to negligent repair work and needed surgical repair of his back and knee, but could not find a lawyer to represent him due to alleged liability issues. Mr. O’Leary filed suit and at the first mediation, the defense firm offered nothing to settle. At the second mediation, only a small sum was offered and then the insurer, perhaps unhappy that even a small settlement was recommended, changed defense law firms! Mr. O’Leary and the client resolutely continued to prepare for trial. On the eve of trial, the insurer finally offered a strong six figure settlement amount which the client accepted.
