Personal Injury Lawyers Serving Hurting Families in Marysville and all of Washington
As someone who has been injured or lost a loved one in a serious accident, you need to take action to protect yourself. The losses will pile up quickly, and if you do nothing, you could end up paying for someone else’s mistake for years to come.
For decades, accident victims in Marysville and throughout Washington have trusted our accident and injury lawyers to stand up for their legal rights. Here are just some of the reasons why:
Why Choose Us?
1. We Can Help You Get the Medical Care That You Need for Your Injuries.
If you have been injured in a car collision, motorcycle crash, or any other type of serious accident in Marysville, it is critical that you seek medical attention right away. Our lawyers have relationships with doctors and medical facilities that can provide the treatment that you need, and that will work with us in pursuing your claim for financial compensation.
2. We Take Over from the Moment We Take Your Case.
With some law firms, you hand over your claim, and then…you wait. Maybe you’ll hear from a case manager eventually, but it is clear that keeping you comfortable and informed is not their top priority. We’re different. From the moment when we take your case, we will immediately begin working with your medical providers, the insurance companies, and others to make sure that you receive the care and compensation that you deserve.
3. We Focus on Securing the Compensation That You Need Now and In the Future.
Many accident victims do not realize the full scope of their losses. Unfortunately, the insurance companies know this, and they will try to use it to your disadvantage. You should never accept the insurance company’s first offer, and in fact, you shouldn’t settle at all until you know the full extent of your physical, financial, and emotional harm.
We are experienced in calculating accident victims’ losses, and we can make sure that you have the money needed to cover your losses now and in the future.
4. You Never Have to Worry about Paperwork or Dealing with the Insurance Companies.
We have the staff, experience, and resources necessary to handle all aspects of your case. When you file an insurance claim, you can expect two things: (i) a mountain of paperwork, and (ii) to have to constantly deal with insurance adjusters who, despite what they say, only have the insurance company’s best interests in mind. We will deal with the paperwork and adjusters for you, so that you can dedicate your time to your physical and emotional recovery.
5. We Have Decades of Experience.

Our personal injury attorneys have diverse legal backgrounds, and member Dean Brett is a Federal Magistrate Judge.

6. We Focus Exclusively on Cases Involving Accidents and Injuries.
We focus exclusively on representing victims and their families in cases involving serious personal injuries and wrongful death. We don’t take other types of cases, and we never represent the insurance companies. We maintain this focus so that we can provide the most-dedicated, most-committed representation possible for our clients.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Is a trucking company liable for a truck accident caused by its driver?
Maybe, maybe not. Many 18-wheel truck drivers are considered “independent contractors” rather than employees, meaning that you cannot win a lawsuit against the trucking company unless it was negligent (by hiring a driver with a previous DUI conviction, for example). If the truck driver is considered an employee, you can usually sue the trucking company.
Can I file a claim if my car’s airbags failed to deploy?
Yes, you can sue the manufacturer of the airbags under the Washington product liability act. You will only be able to claim damages arising from the airbags’ failure to deploy – in other words, you cannot sue the manufacturer for the accident itself, because the airbags’ failure to deploy did not actually cause the accident.
Am I entitled to compensation if I was injured in a motorcycle accident while not wearing a helmet?
Perhaps, although your damages might be greatly reduced. Since Washington has a motorcycle helmet law, you would be judged partially at fault – even if the other driver was negligent, too. You might still recover full damages for injuries that would have occurred even if you had been wearing a helmet.
I had a couple of beers before the accident, but I am sure that the accident was the other driver’s fault. Can I still win?
Perhaps. Having a couple of beers will not be fatal to your case if your intoxication did not cause the accident. Even if you were partially at fault, you might still be entitled to a reduced amount of compensation if the other driver was negligent as well.
What are punitive damages and am I eligible to receive them?
Punitive damages are awarded in addition to compensatory damages and are designed to punish the defendant for particularly outrageous behavior. Washington does not allow punitive damages in civil lawsuits.
