Every year thousands of Washington state residents are injured in car, truck, pedestrian, bicycle, or motorcycle accidents, oftentimes due to somebody else's negligence. One of the biggest challenges facing severely injured individuals seeking compensation after a road or highway crash is that insurance companies can be unforgivably tight fisted. While we all want to believe that insurance companies will ‘do the right thing' and fairly compensate you for your injuries, unfortunately that isn't always the case. Now more than ever you need a law firm with its finger on the pulse of the insurance community and an attorney with 30 years of experience who knows how to fight for the justice you deserve.
Experience Counts and Personal Service Delivers
At Scott McDonald and Associates, we believe in hands-on client relationships. You can rest assured that if we take your case, Scott will personally work to get you the best possible settlement. Scott's 30 years of experience as a personal injury attorney in Washington State have made him an expert in identifying when to settle, when to go to trial, how to negotiate, and where to find the most skilled investigators and most compelling expert witnesses. Our mission is to help our clients get what they deserve to recover from their injuries. We aggressively negotiate for the best settlement possible and work diligently to make sure our clients are happy with their result. Due to our small size we are selective in which cases we accept, but it is always worthwhile to call us for a free consultation to see how we can help you. We primarily work on retainer meaning that if we don't win you money, you won't have to pay us. At Scott McDonald and Associates, a helping hand is just a phone call away.

Car and Truck Accidents
Washington State roads and highways see nearly 100,000 motor vehicle accidents and over 400 deaths every year. With numbers like these, there's a good chance that you or someone close to you will be involved in a traffic collision in your lifetime. You may need legal help to get the compensation you deserve for serious auto accident injuries like broken bones, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord damage, or severe whiplash. Scott McDonald and Associates will stand up for your rights against the tight-fisted insurance companies and their aggressive lawyers.
Few people consider the dangers of simply walking down or across a street, but according to the Washington State Department of Transportation over 2,000 pedestrians and roadway workers are injured every year. Unfortunately, 98.4% of pedestrians struck by a motor vehicle will sustain an injury - sometimes quite severe - and if you're one of them, you may be wondering if you need legal help. Scott McDonald and Associates can help you determine if an attorney will improve your chances of securing the compensation you'll need to recover from your injuries.
Cyclists are a common sight on Washington state roads, and with stunning bike trails like the Burke-Gilman Trail, ample cycling opportunities abound for both recreational and serious riders. Add regular commuter cyclists to the mix and with so many bicycles on the road it isn't surprising that there are nearly 1,300 collisions each year involving cyclists. If you are an injured cyclist looking for a law firm that can help you obtain the settlement you deserve for your injuries and suffering, then Scott McDonald and Associates can help you.
The awe-inspiring views from the roads and highways of King County and the surrounding area draw motorcyclists from near and far. Unfortunately, for over 2,600 Washington state bikers each year, a routine commute or recreational ride will end in a traffic accident - some quite serious. Injured motorcyclists seeking personal representation from a law firm that can deliver more than lip service should contact Scott McDonald and Associates to discuss their case.
Scott McDonald and Associates helps surviving spouses and children file and pursue wrongful death claims, obtaining compensation for funeral expenses, loss of future earnings, medical bills, physical pain and emotional suffering from the person or company responsible for the wrongful death. Our personal, hands-on style assures you will receive the attention and care you deserve after such a traumatic event.
