Protecting the Rights of Motorcycle Accident Victims

motorcycle accident attorney in seattle

If you or a loved one has recently been injured in a motorcycle accident, here are just a few of the things an attorney can do to help you win your case: 

  • Help with the legal process. All too often the personal injury claim process is complex and difficult to navigate. Unless you have expert knowledge of the finer details, you won’t be able to maximize the amount of compensation you receive. 
  • Help establishing fault. It’s likely the case that the other driver involved in your collision will not admit fault. Establishing proof and that you deserve to receive money for your damages is often best left to an attorney.
  • Look out for your interests. Unfortunately many people assume that the insurance companies have your best interest in mind after an accident. Whether it’s yours or the other driver’s, their main goal is to actually keep as much money in their pockets as possible. 
  • Lend expert knowledge. An attorney with decades of experience has likely seen your type of case before, and they’ll be able to protect your and guide you with their knowledge.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a motorcycle accident in Washington state, contact attorney Chris Davis and the team at Davis Law Group at (206) 727-4000 to schedule your free legal consultation.

What Causes Motorcycle Accidents?

motorcycle accident attorneyA majority of traffic accidents, including motorcycle accidents, typically occur because of the negligence of one or more people involved. Motorcyclists are especially at-risk of being hurt in an accident because motorcycles are often overlooked by other drivers due to their size.

Often times the injuries received in a motorcycle accident are serious, long-lasting and catastrophic because motorcycles do not provide riders with adequate protection from serious injury like an automobile does. Other common causes of motorcycle accidents include: 

  • Car Crashes
  • Blind Spots
  • Distracted Driving
  • Drunk Driving
  • Drowsy Driving
  • Drugged Driving
  • Roadway Design
  • Road Debris
  • Speeding
  • Traveling Too Fast For Conditions
  • Aggressive Drivers

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

motorcycle accident lawsuitOur experienced lawyers help riders recover from a variety of different types of injuries resulting from motorcycle accidents.

  • Fractures & Broken Bones - Broken legs, arms, shoulders, and fractured pelvis injuries are among the more common types of serious injuries we often see in motorcycle accident cases. Motorcyclists are not protected from external impact, which is one of the main reasons that fractures to the extremities are so common.
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) & Brain Damage - Head injuries are quite common in motorcycle accident cases, even in situations where the motorcyclist was wearing a helmet at the time of the collision. While helmet use does reduce the risk of death by an estimated 37%, the typical impact in these collisions can still be severe enough to cause a serious head injury.
  • Road Rash - Because motorcyclists have limited protection, road rash and other injuries to a rider's skin are fairly common in motorcycle accidents even if there was never an actual collision. Simply laying down a motorcycle to avoid an accident will typically lead to road rash, and extreme cases can require extensive treatment and even plastic surgery.
  • Rider's Arm - Rider's arm refers to nerve damage and potential paralysis of a rider's arm(s) that may receive the brunt of the impact if a rider falls off of their bike in an accident. This can occur to both arms and legs in serious accident cases.
  • Facial Injuries & Disfigurement - Facial injuries are very common in serious motorcycle accidents as riders are often thrown from the bike at a very high rate of speed. These injuries require extensive medical treatment and take a long time to recover from.
  • Spinal cord injuries - Complete spinal cord injuries, incomplete spinal cord injuries, and spinal stenosis can change a rider’s life after a crash.
  • Dental injuries - A biker's face is usually exposed in an accident. While the head is protected by the helmet, the facial area is not.
  • Internal injuries - Injuries to the chest and ribs may occur in a bike crash. Vital organs such as the heart and lungs may be affected.
  • Lacerations - Motorcyclists often suffer cuts and scrapes in addition to road rash after a motorcycle accident.
  • Amputations - An amputation may happen at the accident scene or because of an infection that results from a bike injury. Either way, amputations are a life-changing condition for an injured rider.
  • Wrongful Death - In serious accidents, motorcyclists may pass away due to their injuries.

Types of Motorcycle Crashes

Davis Law Group attorneys have successful represented injured riders in these types of accidents.

  • T-bone crashes
  • Rear-end accidents
  • Head-on collisions
  • Left-turn accidents
  • Lane splitting crashes
  • Hit-and-run accidents

Who Pays For Medical Bills After a Motorcycle Collision?

motorcycle accident lawyerMotorcycle accident victims also typically face costly medical bills that can lead to financial disaster. Hiring an experienced attorney who understands the legal issues associated with motorcycle accident claims can improve your chances of recovering fair compensation and making sure that your medical bills and other costs are not sent to a collections agency. 

Motorcycle insurance can be expensive, and since liability insurance is not required for motorcyclists in Washington state, many riders do not have their own insurance coverage. In cases in which the motorcycle driver is the victim of a collision with a car, the at-fault driver's insurance company should take financial responsibility. We will fight the insurance company until they agree to fairly compensate you.
