What It's Like To Be Injured

Seattle Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

Helping Riders Injured in Motorcycle Wrecks

Few accidents are as devastating as motorcycle accidents because motorcyclists have so few forms of protection in a crash. Even though it can be assumed that most motorcycle accident victims will need extensive support from insurance companies for medical treatments, lost wages, and more, insurers rarely cooperate. Instead, most would rather try to pin the blame on the motorcyclist by going with the social stereotype that they are “naturally reckless” because they ride a motorcycle.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

What caused your motorcycle accident is important for figuring out liability. If you were able to collect important evidence from the scene of the crash, then please allow our attorneys to examine it to better determine the cause. Information like pictures of the crash scene, eyewitness statements, and whether or not first responders arrived on the scene are all helpful for us to do our jobs even better.

Causes of motorcycle accidents can include:

  • Driver failing to check blind spots
  • Driver turning left in front of a motorcyclist
  • Poor road conditions, possibly combined with rough weather
  • Motorcycle part defects like ineffective brakes

When we determine the cause, we can next see who is liable for your damages. There might be more than one party to name as a defendant, which could also mean there are multiple insurance policies to file against. In any situation, you don’t need to worry about the details because we can handle them all for you.

How to Prove Liability in a Seattle Motorcycle Accident Case

Proving liability in a Seattle motorcycle accident case can be complex and overwhelming for victims. In order to prove that another party is responsible for their accident injuries, they must build a comprehensive case that involves establishing multiple elements of negligence on the part of the other party. This includes showing that the defendant:

  • Owed a duty of care to the victim,
  • Failed to fulfill this duty,
  • Caused an accident as a result, and
  • Directly caused the plaintiff’s injuries.

To support these claims, motorcycle accident victims may need to provide evidence such as police reports, medical records, eyewitness testimony, photos or videos of the crash site, and more. Each piece of evidence can help them establish that another party was at fault for their losses. However, collecting all available evidence in support of their claim may be difficult on your own, especially if you are trying to heal from a severe injury. Enlisting legal counsel from an experienced Seattle motorcycle attorney can give riders greater assurance that they will be able to secure full and fair compensation for their damages.
