From Advertiser Attorney W. Tracy Codd:


The City of Seattle and its insurers recently settled a tragic auto accident case involving the family of a talented, high wage-earning lawyer who suffered a severe brain injury and other injuries when her car was hit by a Seattle Fire Department ambulance in 2016.

The settlement amount of $65.75 million dollars was the largest personal injury settlement in the history of the City of Seattle. The City of Seattle paid a portion of the award. The substantial portion of the award was paid by the insurance companies insuring the City of Seattle.

The injuries in this case were debilitating and severe. The claimant, a nationally renowned lawyer and a married mother of three children, will require round the clock care for the rest of her life and her home will be remodeled to accommodate her needs.

The civil tort law system in Washington cannot return an injured party to pre-accident condition, however it can ensure that the appropriate financial compensation is awarded for a person’s injuries and medical expenses as well as other related losses.

In this case, the need for future medical care was a substantial rationale for this result. Further, the claimant was a high wage earner early in her career. She also has dependents. Past wage loss as well as future wage loss and other related employment benefits are compensable and likely were a major portion of the award.

If you are involved in a serious auto accident, it is important that you retain an experienced personal injury lawyer to assist you in your claim. The claimant in this matter was well represented by the Renton based law firm of Swanson Gardner Meyers.
