Motorcycle Accidents Caused by Careless Car and Truck Drivers

Motorcyclists face a number of disadvantages when they are on the road with other vehicles. A motorcycle is significantly smaller than a car, truck, or SUV, and riders have limited protection should an accident occur due to no fault of their own.

Although dangerous activities like drunk driving, distracted driving (texting), reckless driving, and aggressive driving pose a threat to all motorists, they are particularly dangerous for motorcycle riders.

In addition to accidents where the motorcyclist is struck by another vehicle, riders are also in danger of crashing when they try to avoid a careless driver. Even if a collision with the other vehicle did not occur, the careless driver may still be liable for your injuries stemming from the near-miss.

The motorcycle accident lawyers at Fuller & Fuller have the experience and resources to investigate the circumstances around the crash and identify the at-fault driver.

Motorcycle Accidents Caused by Defective or Dangerous Roads

Another disadvantage motorcyclists face compared to other vehicles is their vulnerability to road hazards. In Washington, government agencies are duty-bound to structure and maintain safe roadways. If a dangerous condition is the result of negligence on the part of a government entity, you may be able to sue for damages.

Claims involving dangerous road conditions can be complicated. Experts must often be enlisted to assess the construction, condition, and design of the road, and thorough investigation is necessary.

If you suspect a dangerous road condition caused your motorcycle accident, it is important to contact an attorney with the experience to handle the complexity of your claim.
