What kind of cases do personal injury lawyers handle in Seattle, WA?

Personal injury is a broad term that covers an array of accidents and injuries. Here are some of the most common types of personal injuries that prompt injured people to seek our help:


  • Car accidents
  • Slip and fall
  • Truck accidents
  • Aviation accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Wrongful death



Car Accidents


We have represented thousands of clients whose injuries and losses resulted from accidents involving vehicles. Car accidents are some of the significant accidents we see on the Washington roadways and can cause life-altering injuries.


Truck Accidents


When we see victims involved in a truck accident, injuries typically are severe due to their size and force behind it. Additionally, the legalities involved with truck accidents bring significant complications because there are several parties involved.


Slip and Fall Accidents


Slip, trip, or fall accidents can happen anywhere at any time. At a store, you could be at work, walking through a parking lot, crossing the street, or in your apartment complex and sustaining injuries from slipping, tripping, or falling due to unsafe, unmarked, or dangerous conditions. These personal injury cases can get complicated due to the various entities involved.


Motorcycle Accidents


Accidents involving motorcyclists face more dangers on the roads than other motorists due to the lack of protection embodying them. At Habtemariam Law, we have represented numerous motorcyclists injured in accidents involving "left-turns" and similar situations in which cars and trucks turn directly into the motorcycle's path without seeing it, often leading to devastating injuries.


Pedestrian Accidents


Like motorcyclists, accidents involving pedestrians tend to suffer severe to catastrophic injuries when a motor vehicle collides with them. When drivers are distracted, it put everyone on the road at risk, and when a driver takes their eyes off the road even for a second, it can change someone's life forever.

The steps in a personal injury case


So what does a personal injury lawyer do for someone who has suffered injuries from accidents? Lawyers wear many hats and perform essential tasks that help elevate the stresses and headaches, especially during some of the most agonistic times of your life. Our role as your legal advocate, here is what we do in a nutshell:



  • We will assess your personal injuries and determine how we can help you, explain your legal rights as a victim, answer questions and whether you want to proceed with our law firm.
  • Based on various factors, lawyers use an equation to estimate what your case could be worth based on the severity of injuries.
  • Once we have a mutual agreement to work together, we will carry out a comprehensive investigation of the accident, time tabling how the accident occurred and how someone else's negligent actions led to your injuries. We will obtain records, footage of the accident and speak with witnesses to determine who was legally liable for the accident.
  • Speak with medical experts to assess the severity of your injuries and prolong damage.
  • Connect with experts to reconstruct the scene and to work through the logistics of the accident.
  • File a personal injury claim and work through the legal process of negotiating with the insurance company for compensation that is fair.
  • If the opposing counsel is unwilling to settle for a fair and reasonable amount for our injured clients, we will take our clients' case to court to prove to a judge and jury why our client deserves the maximum compensation.
