Risky Driving Behaviors that Lead to Motorcycle Accidents

Statistically, there are several driving behaviors that increase the odds of a motorcycle crash ending in severe injuries or death.

These risky behaviors include:

  • Drunk driving.  Alcohol both impairs judgment and slows motor reactions. Not only is driving under the influence a bad idea, it’s also illegal.
  • Speeding. According to the NHTSA, speeding is a factor in nearly a third of all motor vehicle fatalities. The faster the speed, the greater the chance for severe injuries to occur.
  • Distracted driving. Glancing down at a cell phone for just a few seconds is all it takes for a driver to miss a motorcyclist.

Unfortunately, poor drivers often engage in more than one risky behavior. For instance, drunk drivers may also speed. A distracted driver might not wear a seatbelt. Drivers that exhibit road rage might not carry drivers’ insurance.

Personal Injury Representation When you Need it Most

If you’ve been the victim of a motorcycle crash, you have a lot on your mind from getting your bike replaced to getting medical treatment for your injuries. A compassionate personal injury lawyer can help take some of the burden off your plate.

Here are some of the services we provide:

  • Filing a claim on your behalf
  • Building your case by gathering necessary evidence
  • Working directly with the insurance agents so you don’t have to
  • Preparing your case for trial if we’re unable to agree on a fair settlement

We’ll keep you informed about the progress of your case and explain your legal options at every turn. Unlike other personal injury lawyers, we won’t pressure you to settle too quick. In fact, we prepare every case we take for trial and welcome the opportunity to argue your case before a jury or judge.

When You’re Partly to Blame

We understand that many accidents are complicated, and you might have been partly to blame. For instance, perhaps you failed to wear a helmet or were ticketed for speeding. Here’s what you should know: the State of Washington is what’s known as a comparative fault state (RCW 4.22.070).

Comparative fault allows you to collect a settlement reduced by the amount you’re found to be at fault. Suppose, for instance, the court finds you to be partially at fault for your accident because you were not wearing a helmet. As a result, they assign you 30% to blame for the injuries you received. In this scenario, your settlement amount will be reduced by 30%.

A good personal injury lawyer will work to reduce the percentage you’re found at fault.
