Seattle, WA Practice Areas
As the largest city in the state of Washington, Seattle is part of a bustling metropolitan area with a population over four million and rising. Commercial traffic and maritime trade meet daily commuters, bikers, and pedestrians on the metro’s highways and city streets. Seattle’s burgeoning construction, maritime, and railroad industries employ hundreds of thousands of workers in high-risk jobs. Patients in Seattle’s busy hospitals depend on busy doctors and nursing staff to provide attentive, consistent care.
With so many people in one area, even the most cautious person can suffer an injury due to someone else’s negligence or carelessness. If you or a loved one suffered a personal injury in Seattle, whether from a motor vehicle accident, workplace incident, medical malpractice, or other cause, the personal injury attorneys at Herschensohn Law can help you pursue justice and fair compensation for your injuries.

Motorcycle injuries and fatalities represent a significant amount of traffic statistics in Washington state, according to data from the Washington Traffic Safety Commission. The lack of protection and the smaller size make motorcycles more susceptible to severe or deadly injuries.

We’re the aggressive, won’t-back-down firm you’ve been looking for.
Semi-trucks are one of the most dangerous vehicles on the road, because they’re so much larger than the average passenger vehicle.

Trucking comes with state and federal regulations that are a headache for the average accident victim. Trying to juggle these complex laws while dealing with your physical and mental health is particularly challenging. However, you are not alone.
