Chances are you will be in an automobile accident at some point in your life. It’s always best to be prepared for when that happens so you know what to do—and if you’ve just been in one, you can learn what to expect next in these pages.


Longtime attorney Matthew D. Dubin has represented countless parties with personal injury claims. Because he can’t represent everyone, he is now sharing his wide range of knowledge in this book. Written in clear, non-legal language, Matthew will tell you what you need to know as you maneuver through dealing with insurance companies and the legal system to get the settlement you deserve.

In Maximizing Your Injury Claim, you’ll discover:

  • What information to collect at the accident scene
  • What to say and not say to the police and insurance companies
  • The ins and outs of using your insurance to cover your car repair and medical bills
  • What happens when a motorist is uninsured, underinsured, or refuses to admit blame
  • How your medical records and medical past can help or hinder your claim
  • How to file a lawsuit and the arbitration process to settle out of court
  • How to prepare for your day in court and what to expect

Know your rights and understand the law by reading Maximizing Your Injury Claim. You owe it to yourself and your family to be prepared when the unexpected happens.

About the author

Matthew D. Dubin has practiced law in Washington since 1995. During the past 20 years he has helped thousands of people and families affected by almost every type of personal injury claim imaginable. Matt attended Yale University, where in 1990 he received his Bachelor of Arts Degree in History. After working briefly for the law firm of Boyle, Vogeler & Haimes in New York City, he moved to Seattle and enrolled in law school. Three years later he received his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Washington. In 1995 he was admitted to the Washington Bar and shortly thereafter began his law practice. Matt is the founder of the Law Offices of Matthew D. Dubin. His main practice areas of concentration include all areas of personal injury law. Although most of his cases are resolved prior to trial, Matt has always believed that the only way an insurance company will pay fair compensation for a claim is if they see that the plaintiff is ready to try the case to a jury. Matt has consistently given back to the legal community by being an active member of the American Association for Justice and the Washington State Association for Justice (WSAJ), in which he has been an Eagle member since 2011. Matt has published articles on topics including dog bite law, distracted driving, traffic fatalities, bicycle safety, dangerous household products, traumatic brain injuries, health insurance, pedestrian safety, risks facing teenage drivers and more. On the personal side, Matt has been a tenor with the Seattle Symphony Chorale, the official choral group of the Seattle Symphony, since 2000. He is a coach with the North Seattle Baseball Association and he is a member of the Haller Lake Community Club in North Seattle. He enjoys hiking, camping and attending sporting events with his wife Elizabeth and his son Abraham.
