Seattle Single Vehicle Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Collisions Involving a Single Motorcyclist

When you ride your motorcycle, you're the opposite of a daredevil speedster. Not only do you wear full gear, but you also respect the rules of the road and keep safety in mind every time you ride. Yet, you are now in a bind because you've been in a single vehicle motorcycle accident. The opposing insurance company is placing the blame squarely on you, stereotyping you as a reckless rider. However, you are sure that another party is at fault.

But what can you do? How can you defend your right to recover damages against the insurance company's disputes? After all, a lot of bias is working against you.

We are committed to protecting the rights of motorcyclists and will fight aggressively to get you the compensation you deserve. To learn more about your legal rights and options in a free consultation, contact us today.

Proving Your Side of the Story in Washington

You may be completely honest in your account of the accident, but you will not be able to get the compensation you are entitled to unless you are able to present evidence that supports your side of the story. An attorney can help you investigate the circumstances of your accident and gather strong supporting evidence, such as:

  • Police reports
  • Witness statements
  • Expert testimony
  • Pictures and videos

Remember, evidence tends to fade with time, so it is in your best interests to consult with a motorcycle crash lawyer right away. Also, keep in mind that there is a statute of limitations for your claim, and if you miss it, you will forfeit your right to pursue compensation.

Washington Motorcycle Accident Recoveries

  • $225,000 recovery for motorcycle accident .
  • $175,000 recovery for a man who suffered injuries when a car swerved and knocked him off his motorcycle.

Causes of Single Vehicle Motorcycle Accidents

According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), approximately half of all motorcyclist deaths involve just the motorcycle and no other vehicle. While many of these incidents can be attributed to error on the part of the motorcyclist (primarily speeding and drunken driving), a significant portion of such cases involve the following conditions:

These conditions generally indicate third party liability. In other words, if your accident occurred due to a dangerous road hazard, a mechanical function, or a reckless driver, it may be wise for you to seek the assistance of an experienced legal professional.
