Introduction to Motorcycle Accidents in Seattle

Motorcycles give riders a sense of freedom, and a release from the confines of cars and the norms of society. Motorcycles, however, can be a dangerous form of transportation. Every year, thousands of motorcyclists are injured when drivers of other motor vehicles drive recklessly. While approximately 25 percent of motorcycle accidents are a result of the bike crashing into a stationary object or the rider losing control, more than 75 percent of the accidents are caused by another vehicle colliding with the bike. Because motorcycles offer riders little protection, they often suffer severe injuries.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists endure a higher risk than the operators of other motor vehicles. A motorcycle’s small size makes it more difficult to see, especially to the drivers of larger vehicles. If you’ve been seriously injured as the result of a motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries.

Unfortunately in many cases, the motorcyclist is killed as a result of the accident. In this regrettable scenario, a family member may file a wrongful death lawsuit, depending on the circumstances surrounding the accident. If you are the family member of someone who was killed as the result of a motorcycle accident, you should seek legal assistance as soon as possible. Contact our office in Seattle, Washington to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced motorcycle accident attorneys.
