About William Robison
I became a lawyer to help the underdog. If I can't help you I will do my best to find someone who can help you. I dedicate time to the Clark County Volunteer Lawyers Program which I incorporated in the 1980's using IOLTA funding.
My primary areas of practice are personal injury and insurance disputes. I also represent consumers in disputes of all types with particular emphasis on automobile dealer violations and fraud schemes including "FRS" Foreclosure Rescue Scams. Complex and unusual liability cases are welcome. We have made law in many areas over the past 27 years. These include insurance, Barney v. Safeco, commercial law, Kysar v. Lambert, and insurance bad faith, Truck Insurance Exchange v. Vanport Homes.
I have successfully litigated wrongful death, commercial vehicle (tractor-trailer), motorcycle and automobile cases obtaining verdicts and settlements. Many cases are referred by other lawyers.
I always try to make time for every caller. If you don't have a case I will tell you. If you do I will tell you. If you can handle the matter without a lawyer I will tell you and I will try to help you do so.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced a recall of SRAM hydraulic bicycle brakes. http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/2014/SRAM-Recalls-Hydraulic-Bicycle-Brakes/ The brakes are unsafe and might fail suddenly causing serious bicycle accidents. No fix is offered on the website, “replace” is the only option listed. Ten manufacturers that incorporated the hydraulic braking systems are listed in the recall. Both rim […]
This is meant to follow up on the recent studies focused on trying to figure out why drivers run down pedestrians in crosswalks during right or left hand turns. Trucks are particularly notorious for doing this due to their many blind spots. A recent newspaper article brought to mind my experiences with what I refer […]

By statute and court decision Washington state has developed a consumer friendly law of under insured motorist insurance. Under insured motorist coverage provides you with insurance when the at fault party has no insurance or does not have enough insurance. This coverage is also known by the abbreviations UM and UIM. Lawyers use UM for the completely uninsured driver. […]
Buying auto insurance shouldn’t be like Russian Roulette, but sometimes it is. How a company applies a common exclusion found in all automobile policies makes a big difference in the value you receive. The exclusion is referred to as “the available for regular use” exemption. It is designed prevent you from covering multiple cars you […]
This is a discussion of an actual case. In this case we suspected liability would be contested based on statements an officer made to the cyclist. We acted quickly to ensure all evidence was secured. As a result we obtained a favorable result. The lesson however is that a motorcycle case must always be treated as contested. […]
