Bellevue Personal Injury Lawyers
No one knows how significantly an accident will change a person’s life until the unthinkable happens to them. When that time comes, you need the support and advice of someone you can trust. You need someone to fight for you and keep your best interests at heart.

Accidents don’t happen in a vacuum. They happen because of a person’s wrongdoing. When someone else’s actions cause an accident and you are injured, you have the right to pursue fair compensation for your injuries. You have the right to seek justice. However, navigating the Washington legal system can be challenging, especially when you are injured and vulnerable. The Bellevue legal team at The Law Offices of Briggs & Briggs wants to help you hold at-fault parties accountable for their actions.
If you or someone you love has been injured in an accident, call the Bellevue office of The Law Offices of Briggs & Briggs at (253) 588-6696. Our team will sit down with you to review your situation and discuss the ways we may be able to pursue compensation for your injuries. We don’t ask for any money upfront, and the initial case evaluation is free.
Understanding Personal Injury Claims
Personal injury lawsuits give people who were injured in an accident through no fault of their own a means of pursuing justice. These cases use the civil court system to hold at-fault parties accountable for their actions and allow the injured person to attempt to recover meaningful compensation for their accident-related losses.
Unfortunately, victims of serious accidents tend to face a series of financial setbacks, from lost wages due to being out of work to mountains of medical debt in the form of expensive healthcare bills. If you are involved in an accident, and the accident wasn’t your fault, it can feel unfair to bear the brunt of the financial fallout. At The Law Offices of Briggs & Briggs, we help individuals involved in significant accidents pursue the money they need to move forward with life.
Whether it is filing an insurance claim on your behalf or pursuing a personal injury lawsuit, the Bellevue legal team has the experience and resources necessary to pursue the legal avenue that offers you the best possibility of recovering maximum compensation.

Washington Accident Statistics
No one ever thinks that a serious accident will happen to them until it does. These Washington accident statics prove that accidents can happen at any time.
Automobile collisions are one of the most common types of accidents that trigger personal injury lawsuits. In 2021, the Washington Traffic Safety Commission recorded 596 fatal crashes involving motor vehicles on Washington roadways. Thirteen of those fatalities occurred in Bellevue.
Statewide, distracted driving was at 6.9 percent for the year 2021, down from a recorded 9.4 percent in 2020. The Washington Traffic Safety Commission finds distracted driving more common on city streets. Perhaps this is because drivers traveling at lower speeds have easier access to handheld devices like phones and GPS systems.
Distracted driving is particularly dangerous for Washington pedestrians and bicyclists. While the popularity of these activities has been skyrocketing, so has the number of accidents and fatalities. The Washington Traffic Safety Commission estimates that 32 percent of pedestrian traffic deaths involve a distracted driver.
Unfortunately, dog bites and animal attacks also result in numerous personal injury claims. According to the Insurance Information Institute, homeowners insurers paid out $882 million in liability claims related to dog bites. The average cost per claim hovers around $49,025.
