However, as many Seattle residents are no doubt aware, the two drivers are hardly ever the only ones involved in the aftermath of a motorcycle accident.

Most Seattle residents are probably aware that the loved ones of people killed in accidents may have some legal rights to compensation if someone else is at fault. Most of the time, people likely think of these situations as those in which the family must look to a negligent driver who was to blame for the death. However, as one local case may show, motorists are not the only ones who have legal duties to those who use the public roads.
