When Should I Hire a Motorcycle Accident Attorney?

Since you are reading this, the answer is likely NOW!  It’s always best to call a motorcycle accident lawyer sooner rather than later, preferably as soon as possible after being injured in a motorcycle accident. Once hired, a motorcycle accident lawyer cuts off all communication between you and the insurance adjuster to ensure that nothing you say can be used against you.  Insurance companies often pressure claimants into a quick settlement to avoid paying what you deserve. 

It’s also vital that you hire a motorcycle accident attorney early so that we can investigate the accident, establish liability and preserve evidence.  Hiring a motorcycle accident lawyer as soon as possible will ensure that your legal rights are protected from the beginning and that we can fight for the compensation that you are entitled to and deserve.

Our initial consultations are free so you have nothing to lose.

How do I know if I have a personal injury claim after a motorcycle accident?

The easiest answer is to call a motorcycle accident lawyer for a free consultation to evaluate your claim. While we are the first to admit that not every claim requires legal representation, it is always in your best interests to at least contact an accident attorney to initially evaluate your case. Proving your case on your own can become burdensome and complicated when you are up against an insurance company.

To successfully bring a personal injury claim, you must prove the following elements of negligence:


 In order to prove this element, you must show that the at-fault party owed you a legal duty under the circumstances. With respect to car accidents, a duty is for drivers to operate their vehicles safely.


After proving that the at-fault party owed you a duty, you must then show that the party’s actions constituted a breach of that duty. An example would be if a driver failed to obey visible traffic signs.


This means that you must also show that the at-fault party’s breach (driving through a red light, for example) caused your accident and the resulting injuries.


The final element of negligence is harm. In order to prove this element, you must be able to show damages. Damages typically include economic (such as medical bills and wage loss) and non-economic (such as pain and suffering). Regardless of the type or extent of damages, the only remedy the law allows is a monetary award.

Wrongful Death

If the injuries from the motorcycle accident resulted in death, Washington law allows survivors of the deceased person to file a wrongful death claim to seek compensation for their loss.  Family members who may be able to pursue a wrongful death action include:

  • Spouse
  • Children
  • Siblings or parents if they were financially dependent on the deceased.

Our attorneys will ensure that all responsible parties are held accountable for taking a loved one’s life.

Common motorcycle accident injuries that our personal injury attorneys at Ayan Law Office handle:

  • Traumatic brain injuries

  • Torn cartilage and ligaments

Let us help you.

Bringing a personal injury claim may not be "rocket science," but it does often involve an imbalance of power.  With extensive resources available to them, insurance companies are willing to go to great lengths to discredit or deny your claim.  It is imperative that you are aware of all your legal rights after a motorcycle accident so that you can fight back. This is when the legal skills of an experienced accident lawyer come in. We know the tactics of the insurance industry, and we will protect your legal rights to the fullest.The motorcycle accident attorneys at Ayan Law Office will take over the job of proving your case so that you can focus on healing from your injuries.  

We will establish liability:

We can’t count the number of times a party has changed their story after admitting fault at the scene of a motorcycle accident. As accident lawyers, we have the resources to investigate any issues of liability surrounding your motorcycle crash. While liability may seem straight-forward (such as in a rear-end accident), at-fault parties or their insurance companies rarely take responsibility without legal pressure to do so.

We will gather evidence of your damages: 

Once the elements of duty, breach and causation have been met, it will be necessary to prove that you have been harmed.  This is generally pursued after the nature, severity and duration of your injuries have been established. Evidence of the damages you have suffered will need to be gathered. Generally, damages can be broken down into two categories:

  • Economic damages:
Property damage, past & future medical bills, past & future income loss, and reduced earning capacity.
  • Non-economic damages:
Pain & suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress, disfigurement, disability and in some cases, loss of consortium.

What Should I Expect After Hiring an Accident Attorney?

Our hope is that you will feel less stressed knowing that you can focus on your health while we focus on your claim. Your priority should be recovering from your injuries, not battling with an insurance company. 

Once hired, we will take over all communication with the insurance company.  Our attorneys will keep you informed and help you in any way we can.  We will take the time to understand how the injuries are impacting you and your loved ones so that we can fight for the maximum compensation that you are entitled to and deserve.  Your monetary award may be the result of rigorous settlement negotiations or awarded at trial. We won't stop fighting until you are satisfied.  

Time Limit

The Washington statute of limitations for most (but not all) personal injury cases is 3 years.  This means that your claim must be settled or a lawsuit filed within 3 years of your injury or your case will be barred.  Contact a motorcycle accident attorney as soon as possible after the accident to ensure that your claim is not compromised.

Comparative Negligence

Under Washington law, you can recover compensation for your injuries even if you are partially at fault for the accident. Your monetary award will, however, be reduced by your percentage of fault. Our motorcycle accident lawyers can help fight against a comparative negligence claim in order to maximize your compensation.

Motorcycle Insurance Coverage

Unfortunately, we have seen many cases where bikers are seriously injured by drivers who either have no insurance or lack sufficient insurance.

Due to the severity of injuries, we recommend that all bikers strongly consider uninsured/underinsured motorist’s coverage when purchasing insurance. 

Steps to follow after a motorcycle crash:

With so much at stake, it’s important that your claim is well-documented to meet your burden of proof. When possible, documentation should begin at the scene of the accident.

Remain at The Scene

Remain at the scene even if your motorcycle can be normally operated.  Move vehicles out of the path of traffic if you can do so safely.

Call For Help

If you or anyone at the scene of the crash needs medical attention, do not hesitate to dial 911.  It is always better to be safe than sorry. Seek medical attention as necessary whether from the scene or thereafter.  Take photos of your injuries.

Exchange Information

Exchange contact and insurance information with the other drivers while also getting the contact information for any witnesses of the wreck.

Document the Accident

Take photos of the scene and the property damage to your motorcycle and all other vehicles.

Avoid Admitting Fault

Avoid apologizing or admitting to any sort of culpability at the scene. It may later be used against you as an admission of liability for the accident.

File your Claim with Insurance: But Contact us First!

We strongly encourage you to consult with a motorcycle accident attorney before speaking with an insurance adjuster or signing documents.  Insurers have become increasingly aggressive in attempting to convince claimants to settle quickly. Again, insurance companies are in the business of making money and will devalue your claim to pay you as little as possible. National statistics show that insurers pay unrepresented claimants significantly less than those who hire a motorcycle accident attorney.

Contact us for a free initial consultation.

We will evaluate your claim, discuss the legal process and answer all your questions.
