Motorcycle Accident Lawyers - Lynnwood, WA

If the Defendants won’t accept responsibility for their actions or won’t offer enough, I will file suit (with your permission) and hold the Defendants accountable for any damages that Washington State law allows.

Do not give a statement to an accident insurance adjuster until you’ve talked with a lawyer.

Cooperate with police and give full and accurate statements (unless you may be charged with a crime because of the motorcycle accident, in which case you should hire a criminal defense lawyer before speaking with police).
