Seattle Personal Injury Attorney

Are you in need of a personal injury attorney in Seattle, Tacoma or anywhere in Washington? At Wattel & York, we pride ourselves in being one of the leading personal injury and property damage attorneys in the country. Our passion is helping good people who have been injured by the negligence of other people are companies. We have helped more than 15,000 people and we are ready to do whatever we can to help protect your rights. When you work with our Seattle personal injury attorneys we will fight hard for you when your rights have been infringed.



Dealing with insurance companies can be frustrating, especially when they offer you a settlement for far less than what your claim is worth. The insurance companies are in the business of making money, so the less they pay to you, the more they make themselves. We will fight the insurance company for you. We regularly take on the biggest companies in the insurance industry such as Allstate, State Farm, Farmers, USAA, American Family, Progressive, among many others. We don’t back down because we know what works and we know success – our record shows it. Companies deal differently with us than they do other firms simply because they know that if they don’t meet our demands, we will sue and take the matter to court. We don’t think we’re exceptional because we handle things in this way – we believe it’s how any good law firm should operate.

Personal injury refers to the area of law that seeks to protect victims who are harmed (caused personal injury or wrongful death) by the negligence of another person or entity. Negligence is defined as the failure to act with the prudence that a reasonable person, under the same circumstances, would have exercised. Negligence occurs when a defendant’s conduct imposes an unreasonable risk upon another, which results in personal injury or wrongful death to that person. Every person has a legal duty which requires that he or she conduct himself according to a certain standard, so as to avoid unreasonable risk to others. If someone fails to conform with that duty and causes injury or death to another person, he or she may be liable for the damages caused. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured as a result of negligence or misconduct on the part of someone else, contact a Seattle personal injury attorney at Wattel & York, Attorneys at Law. Our experienced personal injury attorneys can help you recover financial compensation for your accident claim.

  • Medical expenses

  • Disfigurement
  • Injuries to a spouse
  • Exemplary damages

The personal injury lawyers at Wattel & York provide legal representation to those who claim to have been injured, physically or psychologically, as a result of the negligence or wrongdoing of another person, company, government agency, or other entity. Our lawyers are knowledgeable and have experience with tort law, which includes civil wrongs and economic or non-economic damages to a person’s property, reputation, or rights. There are three general categories of torts:

  • Intentional torts – those wrongs which the defendant knew or should have known would occur through their actions (e.g., intentionally hitting a person).
  • Negligent torts – occur when the defendant’s actions were unreasonably unsafe (e.g., causing an accident by failing to obey traffic rules).
  • Strict liability torts – wrongs do not depend on the degree of carefulness by the defendant but are established when a particular action causes damage (e.g., liability for making and selling defective products).

If you or someone you love has suffered a personal injury, contact Wattel & York, Attorneys At Law. You can call us toll-free at 877-572-4143.

“Amazing people, they had my claim for about a week before they were able to get my truck totaled out. Otherwise I would have been stuck with a truck that had heavy front end damage if they hadn’t stepped in to help me. I tried to deal with my insurance company myself for over a month and that got me nowhere, all I got was a massive headache and a messed up truck. They are very professional and act quickly on your claim. I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for help.”

“I was in an accident and decided to call Wattel and York. After months of going to a Chiropractor, I finally felt better. When it came time for settlement, the insurance company was making an offer I wanted to accept, Mr. Wattel advised against it and felt the insurance company was shortchanging me. He recommended I file a lawsuit and that will get them to cave. Well, Dave filed suit, and sure enough, the insurance company increased their offer by $4,000! I am very satisfied with how my case was handled.”

Nardeasha S.


“Wattel & York were flat out outstanding with my personal injury case. They made the process painless and kept in constant communication throughout the entire time. Any questions I might’ve had were promptly answered and detail oriented. They gave me crucial advice that I would’ve otherwise not been aware of. I couldn’t have asked for more from them. Put your trust in these guys, you won’t be disappointed. Thanks Wattel & York.”

Mattew P.


“Thank you so much for all your hard work on our behalf! Thinking I could handle it on my own, I was originally reluctant to take my accident claim to an attorney. But I am SO glad I called you instead. Your people were always helpful, pleasant and responsive at every step along the way. You represented us with honesty and integrity and made a traumatic experience as painless as it could be. And best of all, you helped us get a settlement that was fair and far more than I could ever have negotiated on my own! I highly recommend Wattel &York to anyone who has suffered a personal injury.”

“I was the passenger in a vehicle that was 'T- Boned' at an intersection in 2014. The issues of responsibility and recovery became a difficult and convoluted confusion. I really needed help. This Team at Wattel and York walked me patiently and encouragingly through difficult months, sorting through issues and finally arriving at a satisfactory conclusion. I especially want to name two great and encouraging "warriors" of Wattel and York who directed me along the way..Brian Torba and Melissa Patterson..to them and the whole team I say "Thank You" with heart felt gratitude. Sincerely, God Bless You.”

“Honesty. Integrity. Transparency. Partnership. Wattel & York brought all of these qualities and more to my accident case. I'd love to thank all of the team members who helped me with the process: David Guzman, who conducted the initial interview in my home, Aly Shomar-Esparza, who seamlessly guided me through paperwork and filings, Debbie Harrach, who conducted final review, paperwork revisions and scheduling, and Thomas Grisoni, who counseled me before and attended my deposition. I never felt alone during the arduous process and always knew there was a professional team looking out for my best interest. I highly recommend Wattel & York if you are unfortunately involved in an accident that was not your fault.”

Russ W.

“I was a passenger in a car that got t-boned a few years ago and got a huge gash. I didn't know a lot about lawyers, so I basically just picked one on the flip of a coin. I called Wattel and York and they explained everything, I went into the office and filled out paperwork. Got treatment on my gash over the time I worked with them, glad I did as it opened back up a couple times and bled. They did really good, got me the maximum amount of money, and made sure I was well taken care of. I was updated from time to time so that was good. The only thing I might change is I never got to thank or talk to my lawyer. I think it was because I was already used to dealing with the lady at their Glendale office so they just kept her as my point of contact. So it's okay, I'll thank them with a good review. The last thing I could say about them is months after I thought my case was over they called me and said they had another check for me for a few hundred dollars. Apparently, they negotiated with the hospital I went to after the accident. It was a nice surprise and shows they really had my interests in mind.”

Trent B.

“Wattel & York has been great for me in the past few years. I was involved in a really bad accident while I was on Active Duty in Yuma, Arizona and they have been patient with me every step of the way through a very long process. I would recommend them to anyone thank you for all your help.”

Levy G.

“Appreciate David taking the time to speak with me. He was most kind. From the front line with the receptionist, to him, the firm was a class act all the way around.”

Claire B.

“Dave Wattel represented me and my son on a Personal Injury case from a motor vehicle accident back in 2009. Jake P. handled my deposition and Dave did the Quarterbacking. The insurance company hired NFL referee Ed Hochuli's firm to try and deny our claim. But Wattel & York made it look as easy as Tom Brady on the football field. The result was more than acceptable and my son and I were compensated for our injuries and rehabilitation. Dave Wattel cares about his clients. If I ever find myself in a situation like this again, Wattel & York will be on speed dial!!”
