Motorcyclists are passionate about their mode of transportation. They get to their destination in a convenient and economical fashion. Parking is easier. Filling up the gas tank is easier on the pocketbook. There are also many pleasurable aspects of riding a motorcycle: wind in the face, the feel of the road, and the speed. In Washington State, there are many beautiful places to ride a motorcycle and many drive through the North Cascades, along the Olympic Peninsula and along the Gorge for the pleasure that being closer to nature that riding a motorcycle provides. The downside of riding a motorcycle, however, is the danger involved. Through no fault of their own, motorcycle riding is more dangerous than driving in a car and there is the peril of motorcycle accidents and severe injuries.
If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, chances are it was the fault of the other driver. Drivers are notorious for making dangerous lane changes, being inattentive and being just downright negligent in their behavior with motorcyclists. If your accident was due to the negligence of the other driver, you should be careful to choose the right Motorcycle Personal Injury Attorney.
A Motorcycle Injury Attorney will have experience with accidents involving motorcycles. Ask them how many motorcycle cases they have handled and the results of those cases. A Motorcycle Injury Attorney will be an expert on the motor vehicle laws in Washington State as they pertain to motorcyclists.
An expert Motorcycle Attorney will know about medical care and can guide you on getting the proper treatment and having the documentation in order so that you can get just compensation for your treatment. With the help of an experienced personal injury attorney, you can receive compensation for your medical expenses, loss of current and future income, permanent or partial disability, property damage including expensive gear like leathers and helmets and also for pain and suffering.
When you’ve been involved in an accident, it is important that you work fast to retain your attorney. A motorcycle injury attorney will make sure you keep your documentation straight and can help you build your case.

Your attorney will also help guide you in navigating the medical system.
