Washington Motorcycle Accidents
Securing Compensation from Negligent Drivers
While motorcycles provide a great deal of enjoyment during transportation, there are many dangers associated with them. Without the protection of a car frame and other safety devices, bikers involved in an accidents on the road are vulnerable to catastrophic, life-altering, and even deadly consequences. If you have been injured in an accident while on a motorcycle due to the negligence of another, then you may be entitled to collect monetary compensation for your injuries.
If you have been injured in a motorcycle collision, the first thing you need to do is seek medical attention. Doing so can ensure that your wounds and injuries are quickly treated, and you can obtain official documentation as to their severity of your injuries, which can be used later in your lawsuit. The second thing you should do is to speak with a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
At Hess Law Office, PLLC, we offer a free consultation so that injured victims can gain an understanding of the process of seeking compensation for their damages without commitment.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents, especially when caused by the fault of a driver in a commercial or passenger vehicle, significantly become more hazardous and even deadly for the motorcycle rider.
Many of the causes of these accidents have to do with:
- Distracted driving
- Dirving while intoxicated
- Failing to see the motorcycle
- Opening car doors without looking
- Road hazards for motorcyclists
The key in each of these kinds of accidents is to first identify the liable party, whether it is a private citizen or public entity that made the roads unsafe for motorcyclists, which our investigation will do.
