Your typical car weighs at least 3,000 pounds, and SUVs and pickups weigh significantly more. When people are struck by vehicles, serious injuries occur. Pedestrians face significant risks when walking near vehicles. Even if they take careful precautions, like looking both ways before crossing, and using crosswalks, pedestrians can be victims of serious accidents and sustain grave injuries when struck by a motor vehicle.

We have successfully represented clients all the way to the Washington State Supreme Court.
Our lawyers thoroughly investigate cases to get the information needed and work to get the maximum financial compensation possible for clients.
