City of Seattle Negligence Lawsuits, Settlements & Verdicts
The City of Seattle, like any other governmental entity, is often responsible for causing injuries to innocent people. There are a number of situations in which a person may be injured by the negligence of the City of Seattle. Some common examples include:
- being injured while visiting a Seattle public building or facility (airport, parks, docks, etc.);
- being victimized by the negligent actions of a Seattle city worker or official;
- pedestrians injured at dangerous Seattle intersections, being injured in a pedestrian or motor vehicle accident involving a driver operating a Seattle motor pool vehicle;
- being involved in an accident that was caused by a Seattle Police Department (SPD) officer who was perusing a criminal during a high-speed chase
Sometimes a lawsuit is the only way to get the attention of City of Seattle officials and get changes to policies that will secure the safety of all citizens.

Suing City Government of Seattle
The City of Seattle may be responsible for personal injury in some cases. However, holding the city liable for your injuries, proving your case in a court of law, and getting fair compensation from Seattle can be difficult. If you believe that the City of Seattle or one of its departments was responsible for your injuries or for the death of a loved one you should seek the assistance of a qualified personal injury attorney.
Filing a lawsuit against the City of Seattle is not like suing an individual. There are special procedures and court rules that are required when suing a governmental entity such as the City of Seattle.
