Accomplished Litigator Assists Seattle-Area Auto Accident Victims

Seattle attorney maximizes compensation for people hurt in collisions

A car crash caused by a negligent driver affects your life in numerous ways. Even if you have the best possible coverage for injury damages, your insurance company is not on your side.  You need an aggressive personal injury advocate to obtain the payment you deserve for medical costs, lost wages and other damages. At Seattle Car Accident Law Firm in Seattle, I draw upon extensive experience as a former public defender to provide accident plaintiffs with a distinct advantage. That background has helped me to achieve strong results for Seattle-area clients since 2003. I understand the financial pressure that victims and their families face, and I am often able to secure a prompt settlement that fully accounts for the harm done to you. If you are better served by going to trial, you can count on my training from the prestigious Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College to provide you with exceptional advocacy.

Dedicated Washington lawyer delivers knowledgeable counsel in crash claims

People are hurt or killed in car accidents every day, but when it happens to you or a family member, many stressful questions arise. In a free initial consultation, I will explain how your claim might proceed and how insurance companies might try to pressure you into an inadequate settlement. After taking time to learn about the facts in your case, I will also clearly outline issues such as:

  • Insurance claims — People seeking relief for the injuries they have suffered in auto accidents have several options in Washington, which is a traditional fault jurisdiction. That means victims can file a claim either with their auto insurer or the carrier for the driver who was at fault. You are also eligible to initiate a personal injury suit. My firm will take a close look at your situation and steer you toward the best option.
  • Truck and motorcycle accidents — Cases involving motorcycles and trucks often bring up specific legal concerns that are best handled by a qualified auto accident attorney. If you have been hurt while on a motorcycle, I will closely examine the evidence to determine if a motorist ignored laws designed to protect riders. During truck accident litigation, my firm works to find violations of rules governing the operation of commercial vehicles.
  • No legal fees until you receive payment — When someone is injured in an auto accident case, my firm handles the case on a contingency basis. This means that you do not pay attorneys’ fees until you receive compensation through a judgment or settlement. Once that occurs, my rate is based on a percentage of your recovery, which promotes efficient work and a shared effort to maximize your payment.

No matter what triggered the accident, you are entitled to justice if you were injured or a loved one was killed. My firm is committed to making sure that justice is served as promptly and completely as is possible under Washington law.
