Kent Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Providing Dedicated Legal Representation Since 1994
Motorcycling is enjoyable. Unfortunately, it can also be dangerous. When motorcyclists are hit by cars, trucks, and other vehicles, they have little to protect them from serious injury, even if they are wearing a helmet and other protective gear. As a result, motorcycle injuries can be severe, including broken bones, head injuries, and even death.
At Dore Law Group, PLLC, our Kent motorcycle accident attorney, Jim Dore, Jr., has long represented injured clients in all types of personal injury claims. He understands the complexities of motorcycle accident cases, as well as the need for maximum compensation.
Who Is Liable for Motorcycle Accidents
While riding a motorcycle can be dangerous, motorcyclists often exhibit safe driving behaviors. In fact, other drivers’ negligence is one of the leading causes of motorcycle accidents. However, it is not the only cause.
In addition to other drivers, there are often other liable parties involved. This may include multiple drivers, those responsible for the proper functioning and maintenance of traffic control signals, and construction companies that may be performing work.
Some common causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Drunk driving
- Texting while driving
- Distracted driving
- Fatigued driving
- Defective motorcycles/parts
- Defective roadways
- Unsafe construction
- Poor road maintenance
- Dangerous road conditions
- Defective cars/parts
- Defective motorcycle safety gear
When it comes to motorcycle accident claims, we are dedicated to identifying all responsible parties and seeking full, fair compensation from each. At Dore Law Group, PLLC, we often employ accident reconstructionists and other experts to assist in proving causation.
We Are Prepared to Fight for You
Once we identify the responsible party or parties, we will initiate litigation and seek a settlement for full and fair compensation. If the defendants and their insurance companies are not interested in settling, we are well-prepared to take our clients’ cases to a jury to determine fault and damages.
