Washington Motorcycle Accident Attorneys Washington Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Giving Victims a Fighting Chance to Win a Settlement or Lawsuit after a Bike Wreck.
Most motorcycle riders cruise the scenic highways and roads around cities like Seattle, Kirkland, Bellevue, Redmond, Tacoma, and Everett without issue, but for thousands of unlucky riders every year their journey ends with an accident. Bikers injured in a crash or hit by another motorist can sustain serious injuries like road rash, knee injuries, broken bones, open and closed head injuries, traumatic brain damage, paralysis, and even death.
Motorcycle accident victims deserve fair treatment
Being injured in a major motorcycle collision is bad enough, but when you try to get your medical bills paid or secure compensation for your accident and injuries you could run into an unpleasant reality. The insurance company you will have to deal with will be trying overtly and covertly to protect their financial interests by delaying your claim, playing down the severity of your injuries, or even denying your claim all together. It is all part of their game. Insurance companies have many tricks up their sleeves to nickel and dime you; some of their subterfuges will be obvious, while others may catch you off guard. It can make the whole claims process seem almost worse than the accident itself.
Successfully pursuing your motorcycle accident claim may mean finding the right attorney for your case. Often the only way to get the insurance company to take you seriously is to show them that you have a strong legal team backing you up. An experienced law firm will have the right expert witnesses, a history of successful motorcycle accident cases, and the resources and knowledge to beat the insurance companies at their own game. For Washington State residents, that law firm is Scott McDonald and Associates.
