Possible Injuries in Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle collisions are often very catastrophic. Although a motorcyclist may wear protective gear like a helmet and padding, motor vehicles are much larger, heavier, and have greater protection. A motorcyclist can easily fall or fly off the motorcycle, collide into other vehicles or objects around the crash site, or skid on the road, developing a painful injury known as road rash.

Common injuries in motorcycle accidents include the following:

  • Severe abrasions, such as road rash
  • Burn injuries and scarring
  • Broken bones
  • Facial trauma and disfigurement
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Mangled or amputated limbs

How to Prove a Motorcycle Accident Case in Bothell

If you are in a motorcycle accident in Bothell, you may have the right to file a lawsuit or insurance claim against the at-fault driver. Washington is a fault insurance state, which means that a driver who causes an accident must pay for his or her victims’ damages. These victims may include other drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and motorcyclists.

During these processes, you will need to establish the driver’s liability to secure compensation for your damages. If you are filing an insurance claim, you will need to prove to the insurance adjuster that the driver was responsible for the accident. If you are filing a lawsuit, you will need to gather evidence to establish four key facts:

  • The driver owed you a duty of care.
  • The driver breached this duty of care.
  • You suffered injuries directly because of this breach of care.
  • You sustained damages in the accident.

If you are filing a motorcycle accident lawsuit, it is very important to seek legal representation. Motorcyclists are often subject to unfair prejudice in the courtroom, and your award could be at risk if the court believes you share liability for the accident.

In these situations, you need an attorney to represent your side of the story and protect you against these accusations. As soon as you seek medical attention, contact a lawyer at Colburn Law.
