OUR VISION - COMMITMENT TO OUR CLIENTS AS SEATTLE’S TRUSTED PERSONAL INJURY LAWYERS
Each case taken by the Law Offices of Lori S. Haskell is treated with individual care. Cutting no corners, each and every case is fully prepared for trial — not because it will necessarily go to trial, but because being ready, willing, and able to try your case provides a better opportunity to resolve it through settlement.
Know Your Rights if You’re in an Accident in Seattle
Most personal injury cases are based on negligence. If you are injured in an auto accident due to someone else’s negligence or recklessness, you have rights. Washington state is not a no-fault state. If you are in a car accident you have the right to seek full compensation or file a lawsuit through a personal injury attorney.
If you suffered an injury on someone else's property, you may be entitled to compensation. A premises liability case can be proven in conditions that led to a slip and fall, building code violations, or even dog bites.
If the insurance company knows you are prepared to go to court, that insurer is much more likely to present a fair settlement offer.
I have tried dozens and dozens of cases to verdict. Many lawyers in Seattle would prefer to just settle your case and move on. I will give your case individual attention and I will get you top dollar for the injuries, lost wages, and disruption to your life.
My Experience Helps Juries See Your Side of The Argument
I began my working life in a completely different profession — television news. That uniquely prepared me for what I do because the job of a good trial attorney is to present evidence to a jury that visually allows them to understand your experience. I know how to engage a jury and use visuals so they understand what you have been through.
I have taken cases across a wide spectrum. I won the largest verdict Metro has ever had to pay out to a passenger on one of their buses — $1.3 million for proving that unsafe conditions exist on all Metro buses and, as a result, seriously injured my client. I have resolved dozens of car crashes and taken a number of them to trial when the insurance company involved was being unreasonable. I have sued on behalf of a mother who needed to nurse her baby at work and the employer fired her. I proved that court reporters make secret — and illegal — deals with insurance companies to charge them less for legal transcription than plaintiffs have to pay. That practice is blatantly illegal and no other legal professionals across the country had been able to prove such under-the-table deals were occurring.
I Will Fight for Your Civil Rights
I have sued the police for misconduct in breaking down the wrong door of a house in search of a criminal, brought justice to countless car wrecks, and helped my clients deal with everything from head injuries to PTSD.
My promise to you is that I will be your warrior. Empathy for those wronged is a key ingredient to trial practice and I will walk this path with you every step of the way…
And you only pay if you win.
