I am sorry for your serious injury. I would be happy to answer your questions. You have an apparent third party claim against the machine manufacturer which I can look at for you.

I look forward to hearing from you,

You likely have a products liability action against the machine manufacturer. In addition, you will receive compensation through the Washington State Workman's Comp. system.

I'd welcome an opportunity to meet with you and discuss your claim.
