Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S.'s Focus
Seattle Attorneys Providing Focused, Specialized Representation
Although recent nationwide statistics indicate that the roads have become safer over the past few decades, motor vehicle accident fatalities and injuries remain endemic, and reported annual rates reflect how far we still are from ideal conditions. Every day, motor vehicle accident victims suffer severe injuries that disrupt their very lives and force them to deal with precarious financial situations, mental anguish and emotional strife. Those less fortunate lose their lives and leave behind loved ones to fend for themselves. An accident takes only a brief moment to occur, but the effects can last a lifetime.
At Hardwick & Pendergast, P.S., we believe that the best professionals of all types spend their careers honing their abilities in a specific field rather than just gaining passable proficiency in a wide range of skills. By focusing primarily on motor vehicle accident cases, our experienced personal injury and wrongful death attorneys have established a strong reputation for dependability and efficiency with clients throughout the state of Washington.

Managing Your Affairs in Your Stead
After a tragic accident has occurred, it may be difficult to deal with the personal injury or wrongful death claims process due to stress, physical and emotional pain. Furthermore, the insurance company may take advantage of your vulnerable state in order to sabotage your claims case, resulting in an inadequate settlement or even denial. With our assistance, however, you can concentrate on your recovery and leave the claims dispute up to us. Through many years of practice, our Seattle car accident lawyers have gained a deep familiarity with the ruthless tactics insurance companies commonly employ to avoid full and fair payments, and we can protect you against them.
Handling Complex Cases with Efficiency
Not all motor vehicle accident cases are the same. Some are more complex than others, and in these cases, liability is not cut-and-dry. We have the knowledge to resolve these kinds of accident cases, which include:
- Hit-and-run accidents - Unfortunately, the liable party is not always identified in hit-and-run accident cases, which naturally leads to complications concerning compensation. However, there are other ways to get what's needed for recovery. For example, we can help victims establish an uninsured motorist claim with their own insurance company, an option not many know of.
- Single-vehicle accidents - Just because an accident does not involve another motorist does not necessarily mean the victim is solely responsible. Dangerous roadways or defective auto parts may be the cause, and liability of another party (government entities, auto manufacturers) can be established in these cases.
- Passenger injury accidents - Passengers can seek compensation for their injuries from both the driver of the vehicle they were in and from other involved motorists, depending on the circumstances.
