Services & Practice Areas
At the intersection of criminal and civil cases, there are tort cases which reveal some of humanity’s gravest injustices, but also the greatest opportunities for a jury to make things right.
If the actions of another person, business, or institution has caused you catastrophic injury, the death of a family member, or significant economic harm, Roger Davidheiser can help you get the compensation you deserve.
Serious Personal Injury
A plaintiff in a serious or catastrophic personal injury case suffers from long-term or permanent disability and disfigurement (or death), often causing the inability to work in the plaintiff’s chosen field, or any field. The injured person or surviving family member is entitled to compensation, or “damages,” for all losses resulting from the injuries and their effects. Victims should receive enough money to pay for medical and other expenses as well as the pain, suffering, and loss of quality of life resulting from the injury. This is what’s referred to as “making the plaintiff whole,” and it is your attorney’s duty to ensure that you are made as whole as possible.
Roger Davidheiser is available to try serious personal injury cases involving, but not limited to, the following:
- Trucking and serious car accidents
- Traumatic brain injury
- Assault, Battery and other intentional torts
- Product liability
- Premises liability Corporate wrongdoing/negligence
- Wrongful death
Compensation in catastrophic injury cases can be much more significant, but the facts and arguments needed to prove the extent of those losses are more complex. This is why it is so important to hire an experienced trial attorney with the resources needed to thoroughly present your case.
Significant Economic Harm
If you’ve entered into an agreement with another person, business, or corporate group, and their failure to honor that contract has cost you a significant amount of money, you have a right to seek justice.

A Former Client:
“My 19 year old son was killed on his second day at work at Pacific Top Soil. Because the L&I laws were written long ago, it was very difficult to find a wrongful death attorney to take on our case. Finally after a year of looking for representation, I was referred to Roger Davidheiser from Friedman & Rubin in Seattle. He was always available by phone or email if I had questions and he always kept me updated when progress was being made. He always informed me if he would be unavailable due to other client cases or out of Town/State travel. Roger Davidheiser was able to bring all parties involved in my son’s death to mediation. We settled after a full day of negotiations and avoided a lawsuit and trial. Even after the settlement, Roger Davidheiser has continued to assist my husband and me in ongoing criminal investigation of the company. He has been very professional during this long process and went above and beyond for my family to see that justice was being done. Roger was dedicated to making sure this company as well other companies are held responsible for not following the rules. I highly recommend Roger Davidheiser for representation.”
