TV NEWS: Seattle Housing Authority Blamed For Death of Toddler

Seattle attorney Chris Davis was featured in a KOMO News segment to discuss a wrongful death lawsuit being pursued against the Seattle Housing Authority. 

The mother of a 2-year-old girl has filed a lawsuit against a landlord and the Seattle Housing Authority, claiming both parties are responsible for safety failures that resulted in the young girl's death. 

Sarah Cochran and her mother lived in an apartment building owned and operated by the Abused Deaf Women's Advocacy Services. After moving in during the summer of 2014, the family noticed the windows in the third-story apartment were dangerously close to the bed and asked for assistance making them safer. The apartments in the building did not meet standards set by the Seattle Housing Authority, among other federal regulations. 

Child-proofing the windows would have cost approximately $15 each. See the video above for the full interview.
