ATTORNEY ASHTON DENNIS: There truly is no such thing as a “fender bender” when it comes to a motorcycle collision. Injuries are always catastrophic. The injuries are always life-changing. Sadly, too often it’s the motorcycle driver that people want to point the finger at, simply because they were driving a motorcycle. Time and time again we find out that it wasn’t the motorcycle’s fault. It wasn’t their conduct that led to the injuries. In fact, it was somebody else. There’s this terrible misconception out there that motorcycle drivers are reckless or speeding or other things but it’s just not the case. It’s other drivers on the road that are not paying attention, not seeing someone in their mirrors, which can dramatically change somebody else’s life.

Video Transcript: Accident Injury – Should I Give A Recorded Statement?
ATTORNEY ASHTON DENNIS: Following an injury it’s very, very typical, almost standard practice, for an insurance company to ask for a recorded statement and the question to ask is: should I give it? Should I give a recorded statement to the insurance company? You don’t have to and the only reason why they’re being done is to help the insurance company, to give them a head start [in building a case] against you.
Following an injury, if you feel the pressure and if you feel as if you have to give a statement then take a step back. Get the advice of someone that knows what they’re doing and then proceed accordingly. Whether that is to give the statement or not, but more often than not, almost equivocally we say no, don’t give a statement. Don’t give the insurance company a head start. It doesn’t do anything for you and at the end of the day they’re using that information to figure out how not to compensate you properly.
Do I have a case in order to file a lawsuit?
If you’re questioning whether or not you have a case after your involvement in a motorcycle accident, the following questions are important to consider.
- Did the motorcycle accident result in damages?
- Did you seek or require medical attention?
- Was law enforcement present at the scene of the accident?
- Are you liable for any part of the motorcycle accident?
- Do you or the at-fault party have insurance coverage?
Your answers to these questions and further details about the incident will help an attorney assess whether or not you have a valid injury case from the standpoint of the law. For more information, please visit Do I Have A Case?

ATTORNEY ASHTON DENNIS: Following an injury, that wasn’t your fault, there’s always a natural question that’s asked internally is how soon do I need a lawyer? Should I call a lawyer? The one thing you want to keep in mind is insurance companies, large corporations, are often working immediately after an injury to start building a case against the injured party. Not to help them, not to get them back on their feet, not to provide them any type of resources, but to simply to try to save money in the long run by collecting information they think will hurt you.
So if you’ve asked yourself, “Is it time to call an attorney?” [You] probably already answered that question internally, that you should and now you’re looking for the right attorney. Find the right attorney, that’s going to spend the time, going to look at the facts and truly understand how this has impacted you, impacted your family, and that’s what we believe we’re very good at.
What type of compensation can I expect from my motorcycle accident claim?
If an attorney is willing to give you an answer about what your particular case is worth over the phone without meeting with you first to understand the facts, then they are doing you a disservice. Every case is unique but if you would like to see real numbers and learn more about the types of settlements the injury attorneys at Washington Law Center have obtained for past clients, visit our results page.
Video Transcript: What Is My Personal Injury Claim Worth?
ATTORNEY ASHTON DENNIS: Wondering what your case is worth is a natural question to ask. It’s something that all of our clients have asked: what is my case worth? If an attorney is willing to give you what your case is worth over the phone, without meeting you, without understanding the facts, they’re doing you a disservice. Knowing precisely what your case is worth requires a lot of work and a lot of understanding. That’s not something that you can just simply answer off the cuff.
If that’s advice you’ve gotten, we’d encourage you to give us a call because we’ll ask the right questions. We’re going to ask you how this injury affected your life. How did it affect your family’s life? Are you able to work again? How much work did you miss? What type of treatment did you go through? What is the future going to look like? Those are the questions we’re going to ask you. We’re not just going to give you some boilerplate answer that your case is worth ‘x’.
That’s not what good injury attorneys do. They look at the specific facts. They look at how you’ve been hurt, how it has impacted your family, and then they determine how to best approach it and whether that’s through negotiations, through a trial process, but no two cases are the same.
