* Fighting for Your Rights
All too often, motorcyclists maintain reputations as reckless, or worse, by certain drivers. Usually, this reputation stems from those who do not ride.
However, this reputation can complicate the process of obtaining the settlement you deserve for your injuries. This is because insurance companies oftentimes will attempt to place the fault of the accident on the motorcycle rider instead of the at-fault vehicle driver.
At Foster Law Offices, we are keenly aware that motorcycle riders are responsible, highly-skilled, and adept drivers. Our motorcycle injury lawyers are skilled at dealing with the insurance companies that attempt to limit the motorcyclist's recovery.
We fight on your behalf to force the insurance companies to understand the realities faced by the motorcyclist and to obtain the maximum settlement you are entitled to under Washington law.
If you have sustained an injury in a motorcycle accident, keep these points in mind to help protect your rights until you speak with a motorcycle accident attorney at Foster Law Offices:
- Don't sign any releases or make any statements to the negligent driver's insurance company. Doing so could lead to you signing away your rights or limiting our ability to obtain the maximum settlement for you. If you're contacted by an insurance adjuster, let him or her know that you first need to speak with your lawyer before speaking to him or her. Put simply, do not speak to the insurance company for any reason or under any circumstances.
- Take as many photographs as possible of your injuries as well as your bike and the driver's vehicle. The accident report, medical bills and records, photos of the accident scene and your injuries, and the names and contact information of witnesses can prove most helpful for us in order to investigate and pursue your case on your behalf. Also, make a daily log of how your injuries affect your ability to perform everyday activities and the amount of pain you feel.
- Attend every doctor's appointment and follow his or her recommendations on treatment and rehabilitation.
* The Motorcycle Injury Case
Under Washington law, motorcyclists have the same legal rights as any car, truck, or other vehicle driver or passenger in regard to medical injuries, wage loss and pain and suffering incurred as a result of a motorcycle accident.
Not only are motorcyclists frequently ignored by automobiles and other motor vehicles on the road, but motorcyclists risk suffering more serious injuries or even death when drivers of motor vehicles fail to "see motorcyclists," or when drivers are negligent in causing an accident with a motorcyclist.
As a result of the serious injuries suffered by motorcyclists each day in the state of Washington, it is necessary to retain a motorcycle accident attorney knowledgeable in the legal complexities a catastrophic injury case most often presents.
Based on the significant amount of money that an insurance company must pay to the injured victim of a motorcycle injury, these types of cases are defended vigorously by insurance companies. This is why most motorcycle injury cases wind up in court.
However, retaining effective legal counsel with real litigation experience in motorcycle injury claims, provides the victim and the victim's family with the assurance that the victim's past and future medical expenses, and all damages recoverable under Washington law, will be paid by the insurance companies financially liable to the injured party.
There is no substitute for effective and knowledgeable legal counsel.
The motorcyclist must seek and receive the right legal advice and assistance from a motorcycle accident attorney who understands the technical requirements of motorcycle operation; as well as the complex legal issues involved in proving fault for the motorcyclists injuries. This is vital to gaining the maximum monetary settlement available under the law from the insurance companies.
The legal team at Foster Law Offices offers effective and strategic legal advice, along with aggressive representation, in motorcycle injury claims resulting from motorcycle accidents.
