Scene of motorcycle crash

Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Motorcycles offer no protection to riders in the event of a collision, meaning the harm from accidents is often significant. 

Speeding, alcohol, and distracted drivers aggravate the risk of serious injury. If you were harmed in a motorcycle accident, we can help.

Our State Allows For Significant Compensation

Some states, like nearby Idaho, place caps on the amount of compensation a plaintiff can be awarded in a personal injury claim like a motorcycle accident case. Washington does not. This allows effective attorneys to seek major damages to compensate you for losses in a variety of areas, like:

  • Lost wages
  • Reduced future earnings
  • Medical bills
  • Future medical expenses
  • Mental anguish
  • Physical pain
  • Property damage
  • Caregiving expenses
  • Burial costs
  • Funeral expenses

You Can Be Compensated Even If Your Driving Wasn't Perfect

Another important aspect of Washington's personal injury laws is the fact that our state utilizes comparative negligence when awarding damages. Essentially, this means that even if an injured motorcyclist partially caused their crash, they can receive compensation if their attorney demonstrates that the other party was the primary cause of the wreck. 

This legal framework makes choosing the right lawyer especially paramount, as the compensation you can receive directly goes up and down depending on how well your lawyer argues your case. If you are found to be 40% responsible, you can only get 60% of the available pool of compensation. However, if your motorcycle accident attorney shows that you were only at fault for 10% of your crash, you can get a full 90% of the damages.

We Stand Up to the Stigma Against Motorcyclists

The Traffic Safety Commission noted that there were 132 motorcycle accident fatalities in 2022, accounting for 18% of all auto deaths in Washington, despite motorcyclists comprising only 3% of the state's motorists.

According to the Washington State 2022 Traffic Safety Annual Report, 1/5 of all motorcycle accidents resulted in serious injury or death. This same report states that the majority of motorcycle riders are at fault for their own accidents. This line of thinking is prevalent among insurance companies and defense attorneys, leading many motorcyclists to be treated unfairly.

We don't believe these assumptions. We treat every motorcycle crash victim who we take on as a client as fully deserving of vigorous representation. Our firm does everything in its power to stop insurance companies from downplaying the liability of their negligent clients. 

We Deeply Understand Key Washington Motorcycle Laws

Oftentimes after a motorcycle accident, the defense's injury lawyers will argue that the victim flaunted crucial laws. Our motorcycle accident lawyer is deeply familiar with all relevant motorcycle accident laws.

For example, motorcyclists in our state are allowed to lane split. As drivers in our state are unused to many motorcyclists due to Washington's inclement weather, they often blame lane-splitting motorcyclists for their crashes. We can defend your right to drive in between vehicles in a safe manner.

Help Us Help You

There are several steps you can take to help our Bellevue motorcycle accident lawyer:

Save Evidence

One of the many crucial tasks a motorcycle accident attorney can assist you with is recovering evidence and conducting an investigation to understand the circumstances surrounding your accident and pinpoint who is mostly at fault. Charlotte will seek out nearby surveillance footage, eyewitnesses to testify, and police reports. If you have any photos or videos, you should duplicate them and send them to us to bolster our evidence.

Say Nothing

As motorcycle accidents tend to be especially jarring and harmful, it can be tempting to apologize even if you did nothing wrong. This is never the right move. Any statement you make can be twisted into evidence that you were primarily at fault for your crash. In fact, insurance company representatives often reach out to victims seeking statements to take out of context. Allow us to do all the talking for you. Our Bellevue team focuses on all the legal aspects of your case so you can focus on recovery.
