For the adventurous, there are many perks to riding a motorcycle. They are cheaper to acquire and maintain; if you are in a bustling city like Redmond, you’ll appreciate the ease of getting around with more parking options, and better gas mileage than a full-size car. But riding a motorbike also comes with risks. Sharing the road with cars and trucks that do not respect bikers is a hazard and can result in crashes. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident as a result of another person’s negligence or wrongdoing, you may be entitled to financial compensation. A Redmond motorcycle accident lawyer can help you understand your rights and advocate on your behalf.

Unlike cars and trucks, motorcycles provide very little in terms of physical protection for the rider.

According to the National Safety Council, although motorcycles make up only 3% of all registered vehicles, motorcyclists accounted for 14% of all traffic fatalities in the United States.
Some of the common injuries associated with motorcycle accidents include:
Unfortunately, some motorcycle accidents result in wrongful death. When you are injured or lose a loved one in a motorcycle accident caused by negligence or wrongdoing, you have rights.
