Aggressive Representation for Motorcycle Accidents in Washington

Motorcycles can be a fun way to get around in Washington — but they can also be a hazardous means of transportation. Since motorcycles are more difficult to see than other vehicles and have limited safety equipment, they are at high risk for accidents. Unfortunately, thousands of motorcyclists are injured every year in crashes caused by the negligence, carelessness, or recklessness of other drivers on the road. If you have been a victim of a motorcycle accident, it is important to contact an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer.

If you were hurt in a motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to pursue a claim for compensation. At Herron Law Office, PLLC, we know how devastating a motorcycle crash can be and the impact it can have on all aspects of your life and livelihood. Our motorcycle accident lawyers are dedicated to providing reliable representation and skillful advocacy to help ensure you obtain the maximum compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Pursuing Full and Fair Compensation on Your Behalf

Regardless of the inherent hazards of operating a motorcycle, many motorcycle accidents are the result of the negligence of another motorist. Even when a motorcycle has made no contact with another vehicle on the road, the careless or reckless actions of the driver of a larger vehicle are often to blame for the collision. For instance, if a motorist is not paying attention or is speeding, a motorcyclist may lose control of their vehicle in an attempt to veer out of the way. A motorcyclist can also be at risk if a motorist fails to use headlights at night or due to someone else’s drowsy driving.

Motorcycle accident lawyer Brett B. Herron provides representation for accidents caused by a wide variety of circumstances, including the following:

  • Another motorist’s reckless driving
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Driving under the influence
  • Dangerous road conditions
  • Collisions with car doors
  • A motorist’s failure to see the motorcyclist
  • Manufacturing defects

There are several different parties that may be responsible for a motorcycle accident. In addition to holding another motorist accountable for their negligence, a municipality might be liable if a defect in the roadway caused the accident. A vehicle manufacturer might also be named a party in a lawsuit if a faulty part or piece of equipment was to blame for the crash.

Motorcycle accidents frequently involve complex liability issues and it’s essential to have an attorney by your side who understands the nuances of these types of cases. At Herron Law Office, our seasoned legal team knows how to thoroughly investigate a motorcycle accident case and identify all potential avenues of liability. Unwavering in our commitment to clients, we know what it takes to ensure the negligent party is held accountable for your motorcycle accident injuries.

Even when motorcyclists wear protective gear such as helmets, eyewear, and protective clothing, the potential for serious injury is high. Common injuries sustained in a motorcycle crash can include traumatic brain injury, concussion, nerve damage, road rash, fractures, disfigurement, amputation, and permanent disability. In the most severe cases, fatality can occur. Often, extensive medical treatment is required for motorcycle accident injuries, and a victim can lose a considerable amount of time from work as they recover.

If you were injured in a motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to monetary compensation for both your economic and non-economic damages by filing a personal injury action. Although every motorcycle accident victim’s injuries are unique and affect their lives differently, the following losses may be compensated:

  • Medical expenses
  • Surgery, ongoing treatment, and physical rehabilitation costs
  • Out-of-pocket medical expenses
  • Loss of employment income
  • Future lost earnings
  • Physical pain and mental anguish
  • Replacement services loss
  • Property damage costs

At Herron Law Office, we understand the physical, financial, and emotional challenges you and your family may face after a motorcycle accident. However, your primary focus after a motorcycle accident should be on healing your injuries.
