As personal injury attorneys, a big part of our job is to determine fault. When we understand who’s responsible, we can then pursue them for compensation on your behalf. When it comes to bicycle accidents, there may be multiple responsible parties.
Sometimes the bicyclist may be partially responsible for the accident, too. Washington is a comparative fault state which means your settlement will be reduced by the percentage you are found to be responsible.
Our Olympia attorneys will investigate what happened and who’s to blame in your bicycle accident.
