A motorcyclist is largely unprotected from the impact of a collision with a car, often leading to far more serious injuries than the automobile occupants suffer. If you or someone you love was injured in an accident, our Washington motorcycle accident lawyers can help.
At Van Law, we can investigate your accident, identify the vehicle owner, and document your post-accident expenses and losses. Starting with a free review of your case, we can work hard to hold the at-fault driver accountable for their actions and pursue favorable financial compensation.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) research, as many as 42% of fatal motorcycle accidents are caused by drivers making a left-hand turn at an intersection.
Other causes of motorcycle-versus-vehicle collisions include:
- Distracted driving
- Driving under the influence
- Reckless driving
Our investigative team can uncover and document the cause of your accident. Our Washington motorcycle accident lawyers can also determine the at-fault party and pursue compensation from their insurance provider.

These guys are amazing. Helped me throughout the process. Always there when I need help. Inititailly called a law firm (the one that has lots of ads on the radio), but they declined my case. Van Law Firm accepted my case without a second thought! Kudos to Daniel, my case manager, and Amanda who expedited my payment process. Highly recommended.Milby Mags
Got in an accident at the beginning of the year and they have been awesome, especially with it being my first accident and me being like this. They have been very communicated, stayed in contact with me the whole time, giving me updates when there were any and even when there weren’t and answered any question I had. I would recommend them to anyone. Everyone I have talked to there has been very friendly. I would give them a 10 out of 10.Ethan Gullet
They made sure that my insurance company covered what I paid for them to which included the gap for my car that was totaled. My medical costs were taken care of and reduced substantially so I was able to get more on my settlement. My case manager, Will Garcia, was always helpful in assisting me and answering any questions I had. They really did an amazing job with my case. I would definitely recommend them to anyone in need of this type of legal help. Most lawyers do not help you with the recovery of the car and rental etc. They are amazing.Teresa Cuthbertson
