Seattle Accident Attorney Jon Barash represents those seriously injured as the result of the negligence of others. He is experienced in developing comprehensive litigation strategies aimed at achieving full compensation for injured clients.
When a person is seriously injured in Washington State due to the negligence of someone else, it may seem like the legal playing field is level. In reality, it’s usually not.
With many accidents, the defendants responsible will have insurance, such as auto insurance. The insurance companies that provide coverage, and who are ultimately liable for paying damages (up to the policy limits) have only one goal in mind – paying as little as possible on the claim.
While an insurance company may make a payment quickly in the case of a minor accident where their driver is at fault, this is rarely the case when catastrophic injury or death results. Instead, insurance companies, and their teams of lawyers, will typically do whatever they can to avoid paying damages and to delay a case as long as possible. When they engage in these tactics, we fight back.
Our strategy is to build a strong case as quickly as possible so that we can advance our case in the litigation process through a position of strength. As experienced personal injury attorneys, we know the types of proof that insurance companies will usually require before engaging in meaningful settlement negotiation. We seek to establish liability and damages with solid evidence, and to also show why the claims of defendants concerning non-liability are likely to fail at trial.
At the direction of our clients, we generally seek to achieve a fair settlement through negotiation and mediation. If the defendants are unwilling to pay a fair settlement, we and our clients are ready for trial, and prepared to prove our case before a jury. At trial, we will seek to recover every penny of damages and compensation to which our clients are owed from all those whom we believe are liable.
