Hiring A Long-Time Motorcyclist Has Many Benefits
Despite the popularity of motorcycle riding, some people still have a lingering prejudice against motorcycle riders. This can affect the outcome of a bike crash case in several ways. For example, juries may not be sympathetic in cases involving motorcycle collision, and police officers may investigate the accident through the eyes of a car driver, and therefore, misreport what really happened.
Michael Mulvihill is an experienced Everett motorcycle accident lawyer with more than 32 years’ experience in cases involving motorcycle accidents, car accidents and other acts of negligence. He is also a motorcycle rider himself. Mr. Mulvihill understands the motorcycle riding experience, understands how to investigate motorcycle accidents and knows how to present compelling arguments before juries.

Common Causes of Serious and Fatal Motorcycle Accidents
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Association, around 50% of motorcycle injuries and fatalities occur at stoplights and intersections. Inexperienced drivers, inattention, and fatigue are the direct causes behind most motorcycle accidents in the Lynnwood and Seattle Metropolitan Area. Motorcycles have no crash safety ratings, so their drivers are more vulnerable to life-changing injuries, and many motorcyclists are killed a few moments after impact.
Motorcycle, truck, and car drivers are more susceptible to distractions in urban environments. Because city streets have mazelike structures and hidden shortcuts, many drivers look at their online maps and GPS devices while driving. Some of them are also busy handling pets and children, leading to accident-prone distracted driving.
Every year, hundreds of drivers across America make unsafe lane changes that lead to collisions with other drivers who don’t check their blind spots. However, in Lynnwood and Seattle, motorcycle drivers colliding with opening car doors are far more common.
Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Motorcycle accidents are often brutal and bloody, accounting for about 14% of all American traffic fatalities. Our law firm can handle all types of motorcycle accident cases, and we’ll represent you in court proceedings so that medical treatment doesn’t bankrupt you.
Some motorcycle drivers are not fond of wearing helmets, leading to injuries that cause bleeding, tearing, and bruising in the brain. These injuries can cause nausea, ringing in the ears, and confusion. Medical professionals categorize these injuries as TBIs or traumatic brain injuries.
In high-speed collisions, motorcycle drivers can become paralyzed from damage to their spinal cord. Injuries to the knees, legs, shins, and other lower extremities are also quite common. Bone fractures and damage to internal organs from blunt-force traumas are the two leading injuries that motorcycle drivers sustain.
How a Motorcycle Accident Attorney Helps in Legal Actions
If you have a friend who has been in a motorcycle accident in Lynnwood, or if you’ve been in one yourself, you’ll know that medical treatment for a seemingly innocuous fall can last for weeks to months. Motorcycle drivers are more open to the elements, and they don’t have a steel box protecting them, unlike car and truck drivers.
Our motorcycle accident lawyers in Lynnwood will pursue the maximum compensation you can receive to the full extent of the law. We have helped hundreds of motorcycle accident victims recover millions through out-of-court settlements and verdicts.
You may be surprised to find that the most inconvenient parts of a motorcycle accident happen away from the road. Insurance companies hire professionals to lowball victims and maintain their bottom lines. Our experienced lawyers will deal with them and any potential countersuit that an erring party may make.
We Explore All Options For Compensation
Insurance coverage issues are important in any motorcycle accident case. Your personal injury protection (PIP) policy may provide coverage, as can your uninsured or underinsured policy and the other driver’s PIP policy. Mulvihill Law Firm PLLC will carefully review all aspects of your case to determine all possible sources of compensation in your case.
Our goal will be to help you get the compensation and care you need to recover to the fullest extent possible.
