When you or your loved one has been seriously injured, why not put the most experienced WA personal injury lawyers to work for your family? Abeyta Nelson Injury Law is the most highly-awarded and highly-regarded personal injury firm in the Yakima Valley. We’ve successfully tried and settled hundreds of Yakima County car accident and personal injury cases since opening our doors in 1981.

Abeyta Nelson trial lawyers put 100 years of combined legal experience into every case. No other personal injury law firm comes close to our experience and expertise. We’ve settled more million-dollar settlements for our clients than any other personal injury attorney in Yakima County, and have recovered $355 million for our auto accident and personal injury clients over four decades.

At Abeyta Nelson Injury Law, we believe the success of your case comes down to our experience. In addition to our attorneys’ 100 years of combined experience, we’re proud we have the most experienced staff of any personal injury law firm in Central Washington. Many of our staff have worked with us on personal injury claims for more than 10 years, some over 20 years, and most more than five years. Our law office manager has been with us more than 30 years – nearly half her life.

There’s no substitute for 40 years of experience. And, even more importantly, there’s no substitute for dedication to the important work we put into resolving accident cases for our clients that underlies that experience.

It’s that confidence in the work we do that allows us to build strong relationships with our clients. We know that direct and prompt communication with you, your family members, your medical providers, and insurance company are key in providing reassurance and relieving the stress you’re feeling after your accident or injury. Our expertise and experience gives our injured clients confidence and peace of mind so they can focus on healing after their car accident or serious personal injury.

From the first moment you sign on as an Abeyta Nelson client, to the final settlement meeting with our Yakima personal injury lawyers, we answer every question you have throughout your car accident or serious injury case. Our goal is to ease your concerns so you can concentrate on the most important thing—getting the treatment you need to recover, heal and get on with your life.

Abeyta Nelson clients come to us as ordinary people facing extraordinary challenges. They’ve been injured in a car accident or other serious personal injury. They’re worried about how they’re going to pay medical bills. Many of them have lost the income that their families depend upon. Some are without the transportation they previously relied upon to get to work and live their lives.

That’s where our staff helps the most, especially in the days and weeks after the auto accident or other serious personal injury. They start the process to get medical bills paid, open up wage loss insurance claims, help get vehicles repaired or replaced, and ensure all the insurance available is accessed. They deal with sometimes difficult insurance company adjustors so our clients don’t have to. Our staff helps with the reimbursement of medical expenses burdening many of our clients. They also help identify and facilitate your medical care, building on our well-established relationships in the Central Washington medical and legal community to win your case.
