Issaquah Motorcycle Accident Attorney
After suffering serious injuries in a Issaquah motorcycle accident, you may not know where to turn for legal assistance.

Motorcyclist Rights and Responsibilities in Issaquah, Washington
Motorcycle laws vary by state; often making it difficult for motorcyclists to keep up. As a motorcyclist in Washington, the law obligates you to obey traffic laws and prepare yourself for safe vehicle operation. You need a special license, equipment, and a helmet to operate a motorcycle in the state. Breaking any of the state’s motorcycle or roadway laws could result in partial or full liability for your accident. In most crash claims, however, the other driver is at fault for the collision.
Like motorcyclists, passenger vehicle operators also have rigid rules and responsibilities they must fulfill when operating their vehicles. Drivers must obey all rules of the road, including traffic control devices and roadway signs. Drivers cannot use handheld electronic devices in any manner while driving. Hands-free operation is only legal if the driver has the phone mounted in a dashboard cradle and the driver only needs “minimal use of a finger” to operate the device. When drivers break these rules, motorcycle accidents happen.
Speeding, drunk or reckless driving, distracted driving, and violating other traffic codes are the most common causes of motorcycle accidents and injuries. Injured motorcyclists have the right to file lawsuits against at-fault drivers in Washington following serious collisions. Hiring a lawyer during these legal proceedings is the easiest way to protect your rights and ensure fair insurance dealings. Otherwise, an insurance company could take advantage of you or offer less due to prejudices against motorcyclists.
