We Seek the Full Compensation for Those Injured and the Families of Those Killed in Motorcycle Accidents
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”), between 2001 and 2008 more than 34,000 motorcyclists were killed and an estimated 1,222,000 motorcyclists were treated in emergency rooms in the United States. Tragically, motorcycle deaths more than doubled between 1999 and 2008, while at the same time motor vehicle deaths declined.
Motorcycle accidents frequently lead to severe injury, such as head and neck trauma, traumatic brain injury, paralysis, and amputation (particularly leg and foot amputation), and death. Unlike other motor vehicle accidents where occupants are protected, motorcyclists and their passengers have little protection from injury other than helmets and perhaps leather coats. Motorcyclists and their passengers are subject to injury from the other vehicles, and from the road and other obstacles that are impacted in the course of a motorcycle crash.
Motorcyclists Deserve the Same Protection as Vehicle Drivers
Some in our society believe that motorcyclists are inherently dangerous on the road. They may view motorcyclists as having assumed the risk of significant bodily injury or death simply by riding a motorcycle. We do not accept this view.
Motorcyclists deserve the same safety protections on the road as those in cars or trucks – no less. As Seattle motorcycle accident lawyers, we represent those injured, and the families of those killed, in motorcycle accidents throughout the State of Washington. We know that most motorcyclists do not engage in risky riding behaviors or seek to push the limits of their motorcycles or abilities any more than car or truck drivers.
When the motorcycle injury or death is the result of the negligence of other drivers or third parties, motorcyclists and their families deserve the same compensation afforded to other motor vehicle accident victims – not to be blamed for being on the road as a motorcyclist.
We seek to uncover all the contributing factors to accidents. We want to identify all those responsible so that they can be held fully accountable for their share in causing the accident. We carefully investigate accidents, retain accident reconstructionists and experts when necessary, interview witnesses, depose defendants, and take other actions to advance the cases of our clients.
