Beautiful coastlines, scenic mountains and wide-open highways—Washington is an ideal place to own and ride a motorcycle. However, being out on the open road in a motorcycle comes with risks. The average rider will get in an accident or fall off their bike at least once in their lifetime. Unlike a car, a motorcycle offers little to no protection in the event of an accident.
In the vast majority of motorcycle accidents, the rider usually sustains major injuries that will require long-term, expensive medical care and rehabilitation. In many cases, it’s imperative that you seek the support of an experienced and dedicated motorcycle injury law firm — like our team at Evergreen Motorcycle Attorneys.
Understanding of Washington Motorcycle Laws
Washington State has a set of complex laws that govern motorcycles and motor vehicles. Our attorneys have in-depth knowledge of these laws and can not only advise you, but more effectively represent your best interests both in and out of the courtroom.
We also keep up on any changes to motor vehicle laws which could affect your rights in the event of an accident.
Dealing with Insurance Companies
Our injury attorneys regularly handle motorcycle and auto cases, and as a result, we often deal with the insurance companies. When it comes to paying out a settlement, insurance companies are only looking out for their best interests. They will work to deny a claim, or settle for the lowest amount possible.
Always talk to one of our Tacoma motorcycle accident attorneys before settling with an insurance company. We know how to effectively navigate the often-complicated negotiation process.
Support from Expert Witnesses
If a fair and just settlement cannot be negotiated with the insurance company, court is the next option. When it comes to court cases, it’s very important that the claims being made are backed up by convincing facts and evidence. Qualified experts may testify on behalf of the injured party.
We may hire vocational rehabilitation and forensic economic experts for their insight on liability. They can help strengthen a case by testifying as to the extent and duration of injuries. This can help with future loss of income, as well as unforeseen medical bills.
Hiring a Motorcycle Attorney Who Rides
In the event of a motorcycle accident, you’ll want to have legal counsel from an attorney who knows what it feels to be in your position. When you hire Evergreen Motorcycle Attorneys, you are represented by a dedicated attorney who actually rides. Attorney James McCormick is not only a long-time rider and adventure riding enthusiast, he’s an advocate for motorcycle safety in the motorcycle community.
