Start here for help, and give us a call if you find that you need help with your claim for compensation.
Who should I contact about my motorcycle crash?
After an accident, you should have a chance to exchange information so you can call and file a claim with the at-fault driver’s insurer. You’ll also want to notify your own insurer. Before you make any statements about anything other than the fact that a crash occurred, reach out to a lawyer.
What if I was partly responsible for my motorcycle accident?
Because Washington is a state that recognizes comparative negligence, any negligence on your part will be considered, and your settlement will be reduced by the amount of fault you hold. A lawyer can help reduce the amount of blame laid at your feet.
The insurance company gave me a low settlement offer. What can I do about it?
Remember that you don’t have to accept the offer immediately. If you know what your claim is worth and the insurer won’t cooperate, you may be able to file a claim in the court system to get your damages instead. If you choose to file, you’ll need to file within three years.
My motorcycle was the only vehicle in the accident. Can I still recover compensation?
In some cases, yes. Motorcycles are especially susceptible to poor road conditions, so if the government has neglected to take care of the roads where your accident occurred, you might be owed compensation.
How can a lawyer help me?
A lawyer can help you win your case and maximize the compensation you’re ultimately awarded. It can be difficult to get the settlement you need, so you need someone on your side to fight for your case and make sure you get the help and compensation you deserve.
