Seattle is a bike-friendly city, with thousands of commuters who bike to work and recreational cyclists riding all over the metro area. Unfortunately, this increases the likelihood that a distracted or reckless driver will change a bicyclist's life forever. At the Law Offices of Matthew D. Dubin, our Seattle bicycle accident lawyers comprehend the emotional and physical trauma that many of our clients endure following a bicycle accident. Our bicycle accident attorneys in Seattle aggressively pursue full compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering and other damages related to the accident.
Bicycle Accident Attorneys in Seattle
Negligent drivers who hit bicyclists or pedestrians have a seat belt, air bag and entire metal structure shielding them from suffering severe injuries in an accident. However, with a helmet as the biker's only protection, bicycle accidents often lead to fatal or permanent and severe injuries. Many bikers suffer from broken bones, head or brain injuries, loss of limbs (amputation) or debilitating neck and back injuries following a bicycle wreck.
Seattle bike accident attorney Matthew D. Dubin is dedicated to helping clients recover following a serious bike accident. By focusing on the legal aspect of obtaining compensation and justice, our firm enables clients to focus on their health and physical recovery.
Matthew D. Dubin often visits the accident scene himself to gather evidence to prove negligence and liability:
- Driver error: speeding, running a red light, failing to yield in left turns, "dooring" the biker in a bike lane, failing to yield to a biker in a crosswalk, failing to leave sufficient room on the shoulder when passing
- Road or trail conditions: bumps, cracks, elevation changes, defective road design, lack of guardrail, and other highway defects or street maintenance issues for which the city, county or state is liable
We Find a Way to Get the Compensation You Deserve
Seattle bicycle accident attorney Matthew Dubin is skilled at identifying insurance coverage for your losses and working to ensure that you or your child get the proper medical treatment - even if you don't have health insurance. If the other driver's insurance is inadequate, our bike accident attorneys pursue compensation under your family's underinsured auto policy. Likewise, if you were struck by a driver with no insurance or hurt in a hit-and-run accident, we pursue compensation under your uninsured motorist coverage contained in your auto policy.
