Seattle – a beautiful city with an ugly reputation for traffic and injury car accidents
Seattle is famous for its stunning skyline and views of the Cascade and Olympic mountain ranges, its friendly people, its variety of outdoor sporting opportunities, its rainy weather – and its traffic. The Brett Murphy injury attorneys have spent 40 years helping injured victims of car accidents recover financially so they can move forward with their lives. We work with clients who have been seriously injured and are seeking experienced attorneys capable of handling an accident claim to obtain a full settlement. If we can’t get a satisfactory settlement offer, we will take the case to a jury.
The Brett Murphy attorneys have vast experience handling personal injury and wrongful death cases that begin on the crowded roads and freeways of Seattle. We have found that the intense traffic, seemingly constant road construction projects, and lack of mass transit options that most cities of similar size offer lead to an extraordinarily high incidence of car accidents.

Seattle is a unique city with a unique set of challenges for people trying to get around town. When an accident or injury happens, it is best to work with an experienced law firm that knows Seattle’s roads, knows how road construction projects can contribute to an accident, knows the regional insurance companies and how they handle claims, and most of all, knows how to obtain a full settlement for its clients.

When you have been injured in an accident, it is hard to know what to do.
Perhaps you can’t work or drive, and have mounting medical bills. Perhaps you were injured by an uninsured motorist and need your insurance company to pay your medical bills. Perhaps an insurance company is pressuring you to immediately settle your claim. All injured people seeking an attorney need to ask themselves these questions:
- Do I have the knowledge and skill to effectively resolve my claim myself?
- Will hiring an attorney be worth the expense and enable me to achieve a larger settlement?
For less serious injuries and smaller claims, it may be possible to effectively handle your insurance claim yourself. The problem is that most people don’t know how much their claim is worth. How do you evaluate to cost of future medical treatment? What is the monetary value of pain, suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life?
In our view, the most important thing a personal injury attorney can offer clients is access to accurate information about their rights and choices regarding their claims. While we pride ourselves in our legal knowledge, our ability to negotiate a full settlement with insurance companies, and our willingness to take a case to court if the negotiation results are unsatisfactory, we think the key to a good outcome is enabling our clients to make the best decisions based upon their unique needs and interests.
Why is an experienced personal injury attorney worth the cost?
It is in your best interest to speak with a personal injury attorney who knows what your claim is worth, who knows how to manage insurance adjusters, and who has the experience to obtain a full settlement for you. Many studies show that an injury lawyer is typically able to obtain significantly more in settlement than an injured person can alone. Typically, an attorney-negotiated settlement will not only cover the cost of attorney fees but will also secure a larger settlement sum for clients.
