Recovery for Your Washington Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Washington is home to some of the most beautiful motorcycling routes in the country, bringing in enthusiasts from all over the country to enjoy biking along the Pacific Coast, Columbia River basin, and all over our great state. All too often, however, a motorcycle ride, whether it be for work or pleasure, can turn tragic when a negligent car or truck driver causes a motorcycle accident. Motorcycle riders often suffer the worst injuries in a collision – including serious brain and spine injuries – requiring years of medical attention and rehabilitation, and causing severe financial distress. Vancouver motorcycle accident attorney John Lutgens is here to help you get on the road to recovery from your motorcycle accident. Since 1992, he has helped injured plaintiffs just like you obtain large recoveries in connection with motorcycle accidents, and he will fight for the maximum compensation you are owed under the law for your injuries.
Don’t Accept Less Than What Your Motorcycle Claim is Worth
After a motorcycle accident occurs, defendants and their insurers are likely to try one or both of the following strategies:
- Argue that the accident was your fault, and intimidate you out of bringing a claim; or
- Get you to accept the smallest payout possible in exchange for giving up your right to sue for damages
As for arguing the accident was your fault, defendants are hoping to discourage you from even pursuing a claim, and might even suggest judges and jurors will be biased against motorcyclists. But attorney John Lutgens will fully investigate the accident, set forth your best arguments, and fight to counteract any biases the defendants attempt to perpetuate. Also, it is important to note that, in Washington, even if the motorcyclist was partially at fault in causing the accident, he or she can still obtain at least partial recovery.
With regard to settlement offers, never accept a settlement offer for your motorcycle accident claim without consulting with your own attorney. Motorcycle accident attorney John Lutgens will be focused only on protecting your rights and maximizing your recovery for all losses, and not just getting you a quick payout. He will make sure the following culpable defendants are held accountable for your full damages:
- Negligent vehicle operators
- Employers of such operators (if the accident occurred on the job)
- Manufacturers and sellers of defective motorcycle and auto parts that caused the accident
Don’t Hesitate to Work with an Attorney as Soon as an Accident Occurs
After a motorcycle accident, it is quite likely you might be cooped up at home, tending to your injuries, or even in a hospital or other medical facility. Pursuing your legal claim may feel like an unwanted hassle, but it is important to begin working with an attorney as soon as possible to begin the process of obtaining financial recovery. Because proving fault is so critical to wining recovery, you will want to have your attorney investigating the accident scene and vehicles involved before evidence goes missing, as well as talking to witness while memories are still fresh, in order to put your best case forward. Furthermore, the sooner you begin pursuing your case, the sooner you may be able to obtain recovery. Attorney John Lutgens is dedicated to your recovery, and he will come to your home or medical facility if need be to begin the process of obtaining compensation and getting you and your family the help you need.
