The Farber Law Group

Firm Overview

The Farber Law Group represents clients who have been seriously injured due to the negligence of another. We represent those injured in motor vehicle accidents; slip, trip and fall accidents; construction accidents and any type of accident that resulted in a serious injury including playground, sports, etc.

We also represent people who have been injured due to medical malpractice and nursing home abuse or neglect.

I founded The Farber Law Group approximately 30 years ago. I handle most of the cases personally, including car accidents and other serious personal injuries. For out-of-state claims and more complex cases, I team with other distinguished attorneys.

Represented a family whose baby suffered post-birth hypoxia due to nursing negligence. Obtained a 2.5 million dollar settlement.

Auto Accident
The Farber Law Group represents people who have been seriously injured in motor vehicle accidents including car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, bus accidents and pedestrian accidents.
Our firm has more than 30 years experience representing clients with serious injuries including traumatic brain injuries, fractures and broken bones, spinal cord injuries, soft tissue injuries and whiplash due to motor vehicle accidents.

The Farber Law Group's main focusing is making sure our clients obtain the compensation that they deserve to cover their medical expenses, lost wages,future medical costs and compensation for pain and suffering.

We represent clients on a contingent fee basis which means that we collect no fees unless we obtain a settlement for our clients. We only represent victims; we never represent insurance companies or defendants.

Wrongful Death
The Farber Law Group represents the family of those whose death was caused by the negligent or wrongful act of another person or entity.
Our law firm has more than 30 years experience representing people whose untimely death was caused by the negligence of another. We are skilled in negotiating Washington state's wrongful death statute which allows the family of the deceased file a claim on behalf of their deceased loved one.

Wrongful death cases can arise from car accidents, medical negligence, food poisoning, work-related accidents, sporting accidents, nursing home neglect or assaults, to name a few.

Wrongful deaths claims are very individual and each case is as unique as the person who has died. A wrongful death claim can seek the following damages:

. Loss of support and wages
. Loss of service (i.e. parents caring for a child)
. Lost prospect of inheritance
. Medical Expenses
. Funeral Expenses
. Loss of consortium

In a wrongful death case, the judge can also decide whether to add punitive damages depending on the individual details of the case.

When a wrongful death lawsuit goes to trial, a skilled attorney will employ expert testimony from a knowledgeable person such as an economist who can provide a detailed account of the economic loss to the family. This is especially helpful when a decedant has minor children or if the decedant is a housewife who contributed substantially to a household without drawing a salary.

When filing a wrongful death claim, one must be aware of the statute of limitations.

If you feel you might have a wrongful death claim, The Farber Law Group will provide a no-pressure and no-cost case evaluation. We represent most wrongful death cases on a contingent fee basis meaning you will not have to pay attorney fees out of your own pocket.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

I found that injured persons often have the "deck stacked against them." An injured person usually does not have the resources to take on the insurance companies and huge companies that have deep pockets and will do anything to decrease the amount of a claimant's compensation. I actually enjoy being the David to Goliath and fighting for my clients.

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

In Washington State and in the greater Bellevue-Seattle-Tacoma metropolitan area, we have a very educated population and people are very tech savvy. Many of our clients come to us after having thoroughly researched both who to choose as an attorney and their particular case. With more than 30 years expertise, I can help the client understand their legal rights. I provide a free case evaluation in which we can openly and freely discuss the client's case and feel comfortable with each other before they retain me as their attorney.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

I am always happy to review any documents a client has prepared. Many clients come to me with a lot of documentation on their case. For example, a car accident victim might bring a copy of the police report regarding their car accident and even their medical records. Documentation prepared by the client often makes our meetings more productive and helps insure a positive outcome.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

We are willing to provide our clients with resources. However, with more than 30 years experience in personal injury law, we feel our professional duty is to insure that a client's legal interest is truly protected. We represent our clients on a contingent fee basis which means that they pay no attorney fees unless we obtain a settlement for them. Most clients don't want to fix their own automobile or perform surgery on a family member and most don't want to practice law and they see the value of our expertise.

Herbert Farber

I opened my own firm after my graduation from Seattle University School of Law.

A lot of my undergraduate work required me to be articulate and think logically and analytically. My experience in writing well has also been the key to my success.

Each and every case and client is important to me. I am personally interested in my client's welfare and responsible for their case. In large law firms, this is often not true. I can be very blunt, but the client knows that I am their advocate.

Personal interests:

When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and three children and attending their 4H and sporting events. I enjoy walking our dog, playing a round of golf, going to a Mariners game and ending the day with a wonderful glass of Northwest wine.
