We help people in Seattle and across Washington State rebuild their lives after an injury

Our personal injury attorneys get the settlement you need to recover financially from an injury.

Our lawyers take charge of personal injury and wrongful death claims so that from the moment you hire us, you can stop worrying about medical bills, lost work, insurance adjusters, damaged vehicles, and future expenses. You can concentrate on recovering physically and emotionally; we concentrate on recovering financially.

It costs nothing up front to hire us; we get paid only when you get paid.

Our firm will receive a percentage of the settlement that we negotiate for you. There are no up-front costs, no hidden fees, and no out-of-pocket expenses. Statistics repeatedly show that a claim typically settles for more when it is negotiated by an experienced attorney, rather than by claimants themselves. Let the highly trained attorneys do for you what they do best - obtain the highest possible settlement that your claim is worth.

Need information on the insurance claim process?

If you have been in an accident and are not injured but are looking for information on the insurance claim process, please see our Educational Video Library with helpful information on the claim process.

What types of cases does Brett Murphy handle?

We focus on car, truck, bicycle, and pedestrian accidents. For example,  watch the video of Hailey French, a Brett Murphy client who received a $5.5 million verdict against a drunk driver and two government agencies whose negligence resulted in a head-on car accident that nearly killed Hailey.

What will the Brett Murphy attorneys do for you?

After you have been seriously injured, imagine that you no longer have to worry about:

  • how to pay your growing medical bills;
  • how to keep money coming in while you recover;
  • how to deal with insurance adjusters who hassle you to sign a settlement agreement;
  • how to know what your claim is worth; and
  • how to get the full settlement you need to recover financially.

Washington Legal News

As the devastation of the Oso landslide becomes more apparent with each passing day and the disaster appears to clearly involve dangerous logging practices, attorney Dean Brett recalls similar landslides in the past where he handled the legal claims for the families of the victims. Similar to the Oso mudslide, the horrific landslides from which Dean handled five lawsuits were the result of unsafe logging practices and governmental negligence.

We are all shocked at the story this morning of the helicopter crash in Seattle that has taken two lives and has left one person in critical condition. While folks are accustomed to hearing about car accidents and the toll they take on victims, we never expect to hear about helicopter and airplane accidents, much rarer events.

In 2011, I changed my practice dramatically.  I became a partner in a personal injury law firm.  My prior legal experience consisted primarily of family law cases with some criminal law cases sprinkled in here and there.  I knew that many of the skills I had developed as a family law practitioner would translate well into personal injury work.  However, I was pleasantly surprised by one skill in particular that helped a great deal: tracking income and looking at tax records. Specifically, tax records of defense experts.

Brett Murphy attorney Paula McCandlis was recently interviewed on South Fork Law. The interview was fun and fascinating!

I have been practicing law and handling personal injury claims in Seattle for 26 years. Recently, I have seen a huge upswing in advertising by predatory pre-litigation loan companies offering high-interest rate loans to injured people who are desperate for immediate funds to pay mounting medical bills, to replace damaged vehicles, or to live off of while they are unable to work due to their injuries.
