Driving a motorcycle can be a rush. But it can also be dangerous. Too often other vehicles do not see motorcycles as they stop, turn or change lanes. And that can mean serious injuries or even death. When a negligent driver doesn’t see you, do you know your rights?
Too often motorcyclists are blamed for the accidents they are in. They are called reckless or daredevils. But the reality is that in many instances, the other vehicle simply did not see the motorcycle. When that is the case, Washington motorcyclists can hold the responsible driver accountable.
We can discuss your options and then aggressively pursue those options. We can investigate the crash, talk with witnesses and reconstruct what happened with the help of experts. We can then turn that information into an explanation of how the accident happened. In many cases, that investigation will uncover that the other vehicle was at fault.
But we won’t stop there. We will also look to see whether other parties or claims are available. For example, sometimes the other driver is not the only person who is at fault. Sometimes a manufacturer or municipality is also responsible. For instances, a manufacturer might be liable if they made a defective tire. Or a municipality would be responsible if a stop light was not working properly.
