Motorcycle and Bicycle Crashes

The majority of motorcycle crashes are caused by other motorists. Because motorcyclists are directly exposed to other vehicles, over 80% of all motorcycle crashes incur a significant injury or fatality. Over the past few decades, while other kinds of motor fatalities have decreased, motorcyclist fatalities have doubled.

Like car accidents, motorcycle accidents can lead to various damages and losses, including physical injuries, psychological disturbances, inability to work, loss of wages, and medical expenses. As the most vulnerable motorist on the road, if you are a motorcyclist it is essential for you to obtain professional legal representation to defend your rights.

Chris Jackman is an experienced and insightful attorney who will help you to determine the viability of your personal injury claim and obtain the reimbursement you deserve for the damages and losses you have suffered. He will also ensure that your legal rights are protected in relation to insurance companies and work to help you obtain the best possible results.

Bicycle Crashes

In Washington State, bicyclists enjoy the same rights and responsibilities as other motorists. However, due to their direct exposure to other more protected motorists, bicyclists are at a high risk for injury in accidents. Many accidents involving bicyclists are due to negligent or reckless driving by motorists. Therefore, bicyclists often have a strong personal injury case with road accidents.

If you are a bicyclist involved in an accident with another motorist, Chris Jackman can determine whether you have a good personal injury case. If you believe the accident was not your fault, chances are you have a strong case. There are many laws protecting bicyclists from other motorists.

For instance:

  • Motorists must remain safely to the left of bicyclists at all times.
  • Motorists must not turn abruptly immediately after passing cyclists.
  • Motorists are required to yield to oncoming bicyclists when turning left.

If you are a bicyclist who has been involved in an accident with a car, you may have suffered physical injuries, psychological disturbances, inability to work, loss of wages, and medical expenses. A personal injury case addresses the damages and losses endured by victims of accidents through seeking fair monetary reimbursement. If you are injured and think your rights have been violated, contact Chris Jackman today to find out if a personal injury case is right for you.

Client Reviews
Mr. Jackman has far exceeded my expectations in handling my case. I had hired another lawyer shortly after my accident, only to be told 2 short months before the statute of limitations ran out that he could not represent my case. I reached out to Mr. Jackman and within 4 months my case was settled and closed. Chris Jackman is a qualified, competent, up and coming Seattle Lawyer. He will handle your case in a prompt and professional manor. I can’t say enough about how he changed my perception of lawyers in general. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Jackman to my family and friends. Jim D.
Hired Chris for a personal injury case. I knew the Insurance companies would try to do what they do best – delay payment, save money, and not be fair! (Sorry, not a fan!) And they did just that. Fortunately I hired a caring, compassionate, awesome, kind, focused, brilliant, up and coming Rockstar of an attorney that believed in me and my case. Anytime something came up, I would call him and he would say "I’ll take care of it" and I knew it would be handled. You can count on Chris to go the extra steps to help you, and I really believe in him. Wouldn’t hesitate to hire or recommend. Thank you Chris for being a fair and honest man and Attorney! Anonymous
