Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Kent
Being in a motorcycle accident is often a very serious event, Mark A. Hammer & Associates, Inc. will fight to help you get the compensation you deserve. When an uninsured motorist causes an accident by failing to drive safely or ignoring ordinary traffic laws, it is not fair to burden the victim with the losses that follow from his or her injuries. Rather, those losses as well as the victim’s pain and suffering should be borne by the motorist who caused the accident.
Motorcyclists take to the road with little more than a helmet and the clothes on their back. As a result, victims of motorcycle accidents, like victims of drunk drivers, are killed or seriously injured at an alarming rate. Motorcycle accident victims are in a much more vulnerable position than victims of auto accidents or bus accidents.
Experience Matters in Accident Recovery
It is important to have knowledgeable motorcycle accident attorneys at your side in the unfortunate event of a collision. An attorney will discuss with you the circumstances of the accident and the legal options available. A motorcycle personal injury lawyer will assess the nature and extent of the injuries to determine the amount of damages sustained for litigation or settlement purposes, and fight to recover the compensation you deserve.
Mark A. Hammer & Associates, Inc. has helped victims injured in motorcycle accidents and auto accidents recover for their injuries for three decades.

Washington Motorcycle Helmet Law
Motorcyclists in Washington are required by law to wear helmets while riding. Helmets must be certified by the manufacturer as meeting the standards set forth by the United States Department of Transportation. Many motorcycle helmets appear safe but actually fail to meet minimum safety standards. Consult the Washington State Patrol’s website to learn more about motorcycle helmet safety standards.

Common Injuries for victims hurt in Commercial Driver Accidents
Because of the size and weight of commercial trucks, accidents tend to be very severe. Injuries to commercial truck accident victims vary, but frequently involve significant trauma to the head, neck, and back, including concussions, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and paralysis, as well as severe skin abrasions. Other injuries include broken arms, legs, and ribs, sprained knees and wrists, dislocations, and torn muscles, ligaments, or tendons.
For some of these injuries, associated complications can be permanent. For others, the recovery period is only a matter of weeks. Whatever the injury, and whatever its severity, it is critical to consult with an accident attorney as soon as possible. As noted in our car accident FAQs, an attorney can give perspective to an injury and help determine whether legal action is warranted. An attorney can also help decide the source from which recovery can be sought, an issue covered at length in our uninsured motorist FAQs.
