Peter Abbarno: Guest Editorial on Civil Legal Services

Althauser Rayan Abbarno attorney and Centralia City Councilmember Peter Abbarno: Guest Editorial in the Chronicle on Civil Legal Services!

We all know that there are critical components of every thriving community. We see them every day in our community, professional and public work — like vibrant public schools, servant leaders taking active roles in our community, volunteers helping those less fortunate to improve their lives, and a fair justice system.

Lewis County Bar Legal Aid has provided civil legal services to low-income residents in Lewis County for more than 25 years. Supporting Legal Aid is not only the right thing to do, but it is a fiscally responsible approach to budgetary constraints. Thank you, Carolyn Hipps, Director of Lewis County Bar Legal Aid, Todd Chaput, and the United Way of Lewis County for your effort and continued support of Legal Aid in Lewis County.

In this time of budget and policy challenges, we should all be able to agree that access to justice is part of what helps our community succeed and is a central part of our democracy.  We should encourage our elected leaders to do all they can to ensure the fairness of our civil justice system, and continue to adequately fund the civil legal aid system.

Peter Abbarno delivers keynote address at Chamber Scholarship Luncheon

Althauser Rayan Abbarno attorney Peter Abbarno delivers keynote address at Chamber Scholarship Luncheon.

The top 25 graduating students from both Centralia and Chehalis were honored by the business community and received scholarships Monday at the annual Rob Fuller Luncheon hosted by the Centralia-Chehalis Chamber of Commerce.

The seniors spoke briefly on plans to attend colleges, trade schools or join the military to become everything from teachers and nurses to accountants and underwater welders during the event at the Great Wolf Lodge.

“Education is the building block for any community,” keynote speaker and Centralia City Councilor Peter Abbarno said. “Graduation is not the end or beginning. Life is a series of chapters in a book.”

At this point, one chapter is closing and another one is beginning for the students, he said.

What You Should Bring to Your Free Personal Injury Consultation

When you meet with your Althauser Rayan Abbarno personal injury attorney, here are a few tips to help us fully evaluate your automobile collision or personal injury claim:
1) Medical Records: If you were injured, you likely sought medical help either from a doctor, clinic, or emergency care facility. In either case, the medical provider should have given you records on what procedures were performed, diagnosis, and contacts for the medical professionals who treated you. To evaluate the extent of your injuries- to date- medical records and objective diagnosis are very helpful. If you don’t have the medical records or treatment is ongoing, an Althauser Rayan Abbarno injury attorney can help obtain the records following your free consultation.
If you have yet to seek medical care, your Althauser Rayan Abbarno injury attorney can provide you options for your medical care and guide you through the process.
2) Police or Accident Report: You may have a police report associated with your collision and injuries. This information is important for your Althauser Rayan Abbarno injury attorney to assess liability and information about the at-fault driver. If you don’t have a copy of the police or incident report, an Althauser Rayan Abbarno injury attorney can help obtain the report following your free consultation.
3) Insurance Policy Information: Your Althauser Rayan Abbarno injury attorney can help you determine what is and isn’t covered by your automobile insurance policies; such as Personal Injury Protection (PIP) and Under- and Uninsured Motorist coverage. If you don’t have a copy of your insurance policy, an Althauser Rayan Abbarno injury attorney can help you obtain the policy following your free consultation.
4) Private Health Insurance Information: Your Althauser Rayan Abbarno injury attorney can help you determine how to pay your injuries by reviewing your health insurance policy. Private health insurance coverage can greatly influence your case; especially if you have an ERISA plan. If you don’t have a copy of your health insurance card or policy, an Althauser Rayan Abbarno injury attorney can help obtain the health insurance policy following your free consultation.
5) Correspondence: Provide your Althauser Rayan Abbarno injury attorney with any written communication from the at-fault driver, your insurance company, or the at-fault driver’s insurance company. The communication may have a significant impact on your case or a case under the Insurance Fair Conduct Act (IFCA).
6) Witnesses: Provide your Althauser Rayan Abbarno injury attorney with a list of any witnesses of the collision, whether they were in the vehicle or not. Also provide the witness’ contact information.
7) Medical History: Be prepared to discuss previous medical history with your Althauser Rayan Abbarno injury attorney. Pre-existing conditions and injuries, whether arising naturally, form previous personal injury cases, or worker’s compensation cases, may have an impact on the method for evaluating your case.
Arriving prepared gives your Althauser Rayan Abbarno injury attorney a better chance to accurately evaluate your claim and successfully fight for your rights, benefits, and compensation.
