Carter Hick settles negligence case against DSHS for 2.85 million

After many years of hard fought litigation that saw the parties in state court, federal court, at the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, and back down to state court, DSHS finally admitted that it failed Carter's client. Unfortunately, the settlement will never undo the years of physical and sexual abuse the client endured as a result of DSHS' negligence. Fortunately, Carter's client can now get the treatment she needs in order to move forward in a good and healthy way. Carter is proud of his client's courage and is thankful to have had the opportunity to represent her.
