Motorcycle Accidents

Powerful Advocacy for Over 15 Years in the Greater Seattle Area

Lynnwood Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

Motorcycles offer a sense of freedom and connection with the road that is difficult to duplicate. Unfortunately, however, motorcycle accidents are among the deadliest traffic accidents out there on our roads. When you’re on your bike, you have none of the physical protections that you do when you are in your car, and the impact of an accident can lead to life-threatening injuries. If another motorist’s negligence leaves you injured in a motorcycle accident, reach out to an experienced Lynnwood, Washington, motorcycle accident attorney today.

You’re More Vulnerable on Your Motorcycle

When you’re on your bike, you’re far more vulnerable to the dangers of the road, including to the negligence of other motorists. Consider all of the following additional vulnerabilities you face:

  • You’re more difficult for other motorists to see (especially when those motorists are dangerously distracted or are engaging in another form of driver negligence).
  • You have nothing but your helmet to protect yourself from the physical impact of an accident.
  • You balance on only two wheels, which (due to issues related to balance) leaves you far more vulnerable to the deleterious effects of inclement weather, badly worn roads, and more.

While these vulnerabilities cannot be denied, motorists remain responsible for proceeding safely and for safely accommodating everyone with whom they share the road, including motorcyclists.

Driver Negligence and Motorcycle Accidents

The negligence of other drivers is often the impetus behind motorcycle accidents, and while such negligence can manifest in a variety of ways, the most common and most dangerous forms include driver distraction, driver impairment, driver exhaustion, driver aggression, and excess speed.

Driver Distraction

In order to drive safely, motorists must train their attention on the road ahead and on the traffic in their midst. Anything that distracts a driver’s attention away from this primary task is a dangerous distraction. Texting and other forms of smartphone interaction are the most dangerous brand of distraction going – and are quickly becoming the most common. When a driver reads or writes a text, his or her eyes (and thoughts) leave the road for an average of five seconds, which equates to driving blind for about the length of one football field, and the inherent danger – to motorcyclists and everyone else on the road – is difficult to overestimate.

Driver Impairment

Drivers who are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs experience impairments that leave them unfit to drive, including experiencing a lessening of inhibitions, a decrease in motor skills, diminished problem-solving skills, and more. Impairment plays a pivotal role in far too many deadly motorcycle accidents.

Driver Exhaustion

Drowsy drivers are dangerous drivers who have more difficulty focusing on the task at hand, who experience diminished hand-eye coordination, and who generally suffer impairments that are similar to driving under the influence of alcohol. Driver exhaustion is closely associated with dangerous traffic accidents, including motorcycle accidents.

Driver Aggression

Aggressive drivers take dangerous driving and turn it up a notch. Aggression behind the wheel tends to manifest in multiple dangerous driving practices during any given outing, which can include:

  • Excess speed
  • Tailgating
  • Zipping in and out of traffic
  • Honking incessantly or otherwise attempting to hostilely engage other motorists
  • Ignoring traffic signs, signals, and lights
  • Refusing to yield the right-of-way

Motorcyclists are especially vulnerable to the unpredictability of aggressive drivers.

Excess Speed

When motorists speed excessively, they are more likely to cause motorcycle accidents, and the accidents themselves are that much more likely to be deadly. The speed limits that govern our roadways are put in place to help keep all of us safer, and motorists who refuse to adhere to these limits leave us all at greater risk of being injured in traffic accidents. Further, speed limits are set for ideal driving conditions, and when the weather is bad, visibility is low, traffic is very heavy, and/or the road itself is badly worn, motorists must reduce their speed accordingly.

What Our Clients Say

The Napier & George team went above and beyond my expectations to get my case settled. They got me a maximum top dollar settlement. I appreciate the effort by the team. I highly recommend!

Dale W.

Amazing! From the moment I retained Napier & George I breathed a sigh of relief. From that moment on I didn’t have to worry about insurance people calling me trying to rush me into settling early or trying to convince me that I was better. I could focus on me. When I told providers who was representing me they even said you have the best in the business. Quite the contrast in when I told them who my PIP provider was. If you want peace of mind go with Napier & George.
