Motorcycles offer an exciting way to experience the open road in a way that can hardly be matched by driving a car. They’re fun and economical, but they do carry risks. While drivers and passengers in cars have airbags and seatbelts to protect them, motorcycle riders have relatively little crash protection. If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident caused by another driver’s negligence or recklessness, the dedicated personal injury lawyers at Zbinden & Curtis Attorneys At Law can support you during each step of the claims process. We will work hard to help you secure the compensation you need to get your life back on track.
Holding Negligent Drivers Liable For a Causing Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Most states, including Oregon and Washington, have an at-fault system when it comes to compensation for motor vehicle accidents involving multiple individuals. This means the at-fault party is responsible (liable) for paying for accident-related expenses for injury victims. In the case of a motorcycle accident caused by another driver, that often means it’s the at-fault driver’s insurance company’s responsibility to pay for the motorcyclist’s accident expenses. Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents can be quite complicated. Many parties automatically blame motorcyclists for accidents, assuming that their thrill-seeking personalities led them to behave recklessly. Worst of all, insurance companies often take the driver’s side and do everything they can to deny motorcycle accident claims. However, when you enlist our help, you can trust that we will work tirelessly to secure you the compensation you’re owed.
How an Oregon Motorcycle Accident Attorney Can Help
If you or someone you love has sustained a motorcycle accident injury, our team is here to aggressively pursue and obtain the maximum compensation for Oregon motorcycle accident victims. While most insurance companies may try to argue that the motorcycle driver was somehow to blame for the accident, automobile drivers are far more likely to cause a motorcycle accident—usually because they fail to check for motorcyclists when turning or changing lanes. At Zbinden & Curtis Attorneys At Law, we take action against the insurance companies to ensure you secure the total value of your claim.
