“Best personal injury attorney in Seattle 2016”.
Without a doubt, Gary and his staff helped me and my family through one of the most difficult times in my life… I knew from the start of this ordeal that I lacked the knowledge to deal with the … insurance company on my own, and I knew trying to do so while getting my health back would only make matters worse. I’m so happy that Gary and his staff were there for me and my family when we needed them. They fought very hard to get a great result, and I’m very pleased with the outcome… Choosing them will put your mind at ease knowing you have confident people on your side and knowing that you will get a great result in the end.John S.

What Should You Do after a Car Accident In Seattle
In our experience, there is no such thing as a “minor” car accident. Every time two vehicles collide; there is the possibility of property damage, bodily injuries, and mental and emotional distress that can have possible long-term consequences. Aside from being aggravating; even a fender bender will set off a series of events that will cost you time, money, and a certain amount of mental and physical suffering. In a more serious accident, those elements become much more complicated and intense. Studies show that even accidents where there is only minor property damage can lead to chronic and permanent physical and mental disabilities. We are not aware of any good reasons for people to handle an injury or insurance claim on their own. Whether it’s a minor accident or major catastrophe, we believe you will reach a better outcome if you hire an attorney to protect your legal rights, your property, and your good health.
We have been representing auto accident victims for several decades, assertively advocating for our clients and tackling their tough legal issues, bringing our clients peace of mind and allowing them to focus on the most important job of healing themselves – physically, mentally, emotionally, and financially. At Gosanko & O’Halloran, PLLC, we will aggressively enforce our clients’ rights to the full extent of the law against insurance companies and the attorneys representing the negligent people who are responsible for your losses.
Have You Been Hurt in a Truck Accident
Because of the large size and weight disparity between trucks and other vehicles, there is a much greater probability that injuries from a trucking accident can be much more serious and catastrophic, including the possibility of a fatality.
Truck accidents and accidents involving trucking companies are also more complicated than other car accidents. In most cases, the truck driver is not the only entity that can be held accountable. In fact, Washington’s joint and several liability laws might require that all responsible entities be involved in the action to ensure that a trucking accident victim is made whole by any settlement or judgment. At Gosanko & O’Halloran, PLLC, we perform our due diligence to find and research the hiring practices of the company employing the negligent driver, check maintenance records from companies that performed service on the truck, and obtain a history of other accidents and other contributing factors that allow us to take legal actions against all parties who are responsible in a truck accident.
While a trucking accident case may be more complex, it does not have to mean that fighting for fair and just compensation is more difficult for our clients. By using a thorough approach, and the knowledge and experience of our skilled trucking accident attorneys, our clients are ensured a detailed accident investigation to achieve full compensation under the law.
Are You Looking for a Bicycle Accident Lawyer in Seattle, WA?
One of the joys of living in the Seattle area is that many people believe in and practice a healthy lifestyle, taking full advantage of the clean air and natural beauty that the area affords residents. Biking on our region’s numerous paths, back roads, and city streets is both healthy and eco-friendly. In fact, cyclists factor in to our cities’ long range plans for helping our environment, and our city streets are becoming much more accessible to cyclists, whether people are commuting or biking for pleasure.
Unfortunately, however, vehicle drivers are not always attuned to the rights of cyclists sharing the roadway. Inattentive drivers, poor road conditions, or any other number of factors mean a rider can be the victim of an accident at any time. In our experience, even city and metro busses fail to observe the rights of cyclists. Bike riders should not have to trade freedom and sustainability for protection. Yet there is often an unfair perception of law-abiding cyclists who are involved in bicycle accidents that can limit their ability to recover from the negligent acts of others.
The attorneys at Gosanko & O’Halloran, PLLC have become adept at this special area of law. We have a deep understanding of bike laws, the responsibility of drivers when it comes to bike riders, the technical aspects of cycling and recreating a bike versus a car or truck accident, and overcoming the perceptions of insurers, defense experts, and jurors. We pride ourselves on being able to support the cycling community and using our expertise to provide our clients a strategic advantage and a fair and full settlement or judgment.
Are You the Victim of a Motorcycle Accident?
Much like all other personal injury cases, the key to success in settling or litigating a motorcycle accident case is proving negligence on the part of the other driver.
Much like bicycle riders, motorcycle riders give up a certain amount of protection in exchange for a higher degree of freedom on the road. That does not and should not mean that the rights of motorcyclists are any less than other drivers. We know from our experience representing bikers that riders receive more training and are much more defensive when they ride.
Armed with this information, we can craft aggressive strategies to help motorcycle riders seek full compensation for damage to their bikes, medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other related losses.
