Riding without insurance is dangerous

motorcycle crash.jpgLast week I met a young man and his family in Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. Harborview is the only Level 1 adult and pediatric trauma and burn center in Washington, and also serves the States of Alaska, Idaho, and Montana. All the serious injuries in the Northwest end up at Harborview.

Signs of brain injury after a Washington Car Accident

brain injury.jpgI have been representing injury victims for a long time. I have seen all kinds of injuries, but few can be more devastating than a brain injury. You can suffer a brain injury in a car accident even if you don't hit your head on anything, and even if you don't lose consciousness. Often a traumatic brain injury (TBI) will go undiagnosed for some time after a car or motorcycle accident. This delay in diagnosis and treatment can worsen the impact of the injury and make the recovery more difficult. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident, it's important to determine whether a brain injury has taken place.

Hit by driver high on marijuana - Do I have a case?

drivingwhilestoned.jpgRecreational marijuana may be legal in Washington, but driving under the influence is still illegal. Even if a driver is below the legal limit, being high could impair a driver's judgment resulting in an accident.

The police report for my accident is wrong. What should I do?

police investigation.jpgOccasionally we get a client who lets us know that the police traffic collision report for their motor vehicle accident is wrong. Police officers do the best they can when investigating claims, but they do sometimes make mistakes. Most commonly the mistake involves leaving out from the report passengers of one or more of the involved vehicles or failing to document the identities and statements of witnesses. Even though police reports themselves are generally inadmissible in court, such mistakes can complicate your case if not dealt with promptly.

Seek justice for your motorcycle accident injuries

As spring turns to summer, more motorcyclists will be hitting the open road. Whether they are seeking the thrill and beauty of the ride or an easy and inexpensive form of transportation, motorcyclists deserve to be able to ride safely. They should be able to ride without the fear of a car turning into their path, a distracted driver rear-ending a motorcyclist or any number of devastating motorcycle accidents.

What hazards to motorcyclists face on roadways?

Residents of Seattle may have noticed warmer weather returning to the state of Washington. With this warmer weather, greater numbers of motorcyclists are hitting the roadways. These smaller vehicles are not only fun to ride, but they help people save money on maintenance and fuel costs. Despite their many perks, however, motorcyclists should understand the dangers associated with motorcycles. Riders of these small vehicles often fall victim to negligent drivers and other hazards on the road. Motorcycles are not just smaller versions of cars, and therefore, face their own unique dangers.

Motorcyclists can help keep themselves safe

Motorcyclists have few protections against an accident. Unlike cars -- which have airbags, steel and safety glass - motorcycles offer little in the way of protection. Motorcyclists must rely on their own skill and the attention of others in order to remain safe.

What are the risks of a spinal cord injury on a motorcycle?

While Washington residents can suffer serious injuries in a car accident, a motorcycle accident comes with even bigger risks. Motorcycles do not provide the protection - including the structural enclosure, seatbelts, safety glass, air bags and more - that cars provide.

Motorcycle involved in accident after driver runs red

As spring heats up in Washington many motorcyclists are happy to hit the open road once again. However, motorcyclists should be aware that many drivers are not aware of their presence. Some drivers in the Seattle area do not pay attention to these smaller vehicles which increases the possibility of an accident. In a motorcycle accident, motorcyclists are extremely susceptible to injuries since their vehicles offer so little protection.

Washington senator proposes new motorcycle legislation

In Washington, motorcyclists are held to the same laws as every other driver. However, motorcycles are not like every other vehicle on the road. Their small size makes them susceptible to accidents. And, these vehicles offer little protection to the people who ride them. In some cases, treating motorcycles differently can help to save lives.
