Civil Litigation and Claims

Mr. Berens and his partners at Bailey|Onsager PC routinely engage in civil litigation in Washington State and Federal Courts on behalf of plaintiffs.  Recent favorable outcomes include prevailing in a civil suit alleging wrongful death on behalf of family members against a county entity, a litigated civil case on behalf of a client against the City of Seattle, and more.  Mr. Berens and his partners welcome the opportunity to advocate on behalf of clients pursuing civil claims.

Significant recent changes in federal law afford active duty service members the right to recover if they suffer an injury from a military health care provider.  These claims were previously denied through the “feres doctrine.”  Many military members had no recourse under the previous law.  If you believe you may have a military medical malpractice claim…give Mr. Berens and his team a call.
