Did Your Motorcycle Hit An Open Car Door?
Trust our law firm to help you recover
There’s a reason why experienced bikers know to avoid getting too close to parked cars. If a car door swings open in your path, you could be involved in a serious motorcycle accident before you even have time to react. Motorists and passengers have a responsibility to check for bikes before opening their doors, and when they don’t, bikers get hurt.
The motorcycle accident attorneys at NLE Law have experience helping victims of serious injuries sustained in dooring accidents throughout the Seattle area. Call today to find out more about your legal options.
Negligence plays a key role in dooring accident cases
Doorings may seem like open and shut cases. Someone opened a door in your path and created a hazard, and you were injured. That person should be held responsible for your medical treatment, lost wages and any other expenses arising from your injury.
But actually claiming damages (financial compensation) in a dooring case can be challenging. The insurance company representing the at-fault driver may argue that you rode too close to the car or could have avoided the accident. That’s why you need an experienced lawyer on your side. When you contact us and retain our firm, we’ll investigate your accident thoroughly, including:
- Interviewing witnesses to the dooring
- Reviewing the police report and other documents
- Consulting video footage, if available
- Taking pictures of the accident scene and any vehicle damage
What happened wasn’t your fault. You shouldn’t have to pay for a driver’s failure to check before opening a door. That’s why we want to talk for you. We’ll help you get the medical care you need and fight for the compensation you deserve.
If you’ve been injured in a dooring accident, we’d like to help you understand your legal options. Call (206) 623-7520 for your free consultation.
