Aggressive Seattle Personal Injury Attorneys Seek Payment for Victims
Experienced Washington firm works to hold negligent parties accountable
The Seattle personal injury attorneys at Mann & Kytle, PLLC work aggressively on behalf of individuals who have suffered serious physical harm due to a vehicle crash or another type of incident stemming from someone else’s negligence. Drawing on more than 70 years of legal experience, we are determined to collect compensation for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering and other types of damages for clients through a verdict or settlement.
What kinds of cases do personal injury lawyers handle?
Our firm represents clients throughout Washington in personal injury matters relating to:
- Vehicle accidents — In an instant, a car, truck or motorcycle accident can change your life forever. Under Washington’s fault-based insurance system, it is critical to have an attorney who knows how to deliver an effective argument if the parties disagree over who is to blame for the crash, or the amount and type of recovery or any delay or refusal of insurance payments.
- Defective products — An error in a product’s design or during the manufacturing process can lead to a severe injury. When warranted, we use expert testimony and other types of evidence to take action against the makers of defective products.
- Traumatic brain injuries — People increasingly understand how problematic a traumatic brain injury can be. The problems associated with a blow to the head could last for years and get worse over time. Before you settle a case involving a TBI, you should understand how giving up your rights could affect your future.
- Sexual abuse — Sometimes, sexual abuse victims suffer in silence for years as they deal with serious effects, such as post-traumatic stress disorder. Regardless of how or when the harm occurred, we can help you seek a measure of legal relief as you try to heal.
Cases where the victim has suffered a catastrophic injury or a wrongful death demand legal counsel familiar with complex medical evidence and able to challenge powerful adversaries. We have a series of successful results in these types of matters.
What to expect when you contact a Seattle personal injury lawyer
Several elements must exist to succeed in a personal injury lawsuit. When you speak with one of our established attorneys, we’ll listen to you describe what happened and advise if the prospective defendant violated their duty of care to you, causing quantifiable harm. If the circumstances justify filing a lawsuit, we’ll gather the medical information, physical evidence, witness testimony and expert reports needed to prove your case.
When should you contact a lawyer after an injury in Washington?
Once you’ve been hurt in an auto accident or some other type of incident, you have three years to file a lawsuit against the parties responsible for your personal injury. However, it’s usually best to assert your legal rights as soon as possible, long before statute of limitations expires. As time goes by, it can be harder to locate the physical evidence needed to build the strongest possible case. The sooner you reach out to our firm, the sooner we can start fighting to collect the compensation you deserve.
How can hiring an experienced personal injury lawyer help you?
A quick settlement offer from the liable party’s lawyer or insurance company might sound good, especially if you’re unable to work, but you should speak with an experienced Washington personal injury attorney before you give up your rights. Though most cases settle before trial, having a skillful trial advocate on your side can persuade the defense to increase what they’ll pay to resolve the matter. We can make sure that you understand the true value of a potential injury claim before you decide whether to take a defendant’s offer.
