Motorcycles comprise a small percentage of all Washington State road users but accounted for 19% of injuries from collisions between 2013-2017. However, the great extent of injuries is probably because the riders usually have the least protection when accidents occur. Further, they are usually less stable than motor vehicles and less visible on the roads given their small size.

At Rico Tessandore, we handle motorcycle accident claims frequently. We take pride in helping our clients get through their claims with insurance companies or legal action and ensuring they get the compensation they deserve fast.

While the number of fatalities and injuries from motorcycle accidents remains high compared to the number of registered motorbikes, the fault often lies on reckless drivers. Most accidents occur due to overtaking motor vehicles, lane changing, or driver distractions that cause them not to exercise their duty of care.

Such actions contravene the law’s requirements, which states that all drivers must exercise reasonable care to avoid harming other road users. However, it is worth noting that the duty of care lies on every road user, including passengers, pedestrians, and cyclists. Therefore, any road user who fails to exercise their care responsibility and cause injury can be deemed negligent, hence liable for the harm.

What Amounts to Failing in Duty of Care?
The duty of care does not mean that every road user should act perfectly under all circumstances. However, it sets the minimum standards for all vehicle operators. As such, drivers and all road users should adhere to a standard of reasonable care, which an average driver would do in the same situation.

Any harm resulting from the failure to exercise the appropriate standard of care is considered negligence, and the person becomes liable. Courts will generally consider if the defendant breached the duty of care by asking:

  • Whether the defendant owed a duty of care to the plaintiff
  • Whether the defendant failed to exercise the duty of care to the level that a reasonable person would have done in the same circumstance
  • Whether the defendant foresaw the risk of harm to the plaintiff
  • Whether there were safer alternatives that may have avoided the accident, and if using them posed a higher risk than not using them

I would highly recommend Rico Tessandore. He's responsive, knowledgeable, professional, ethical, and a pleasure to work with. Rico genuinely cares about his clients, and he works hard to get them the best possible outcome. I consulted with Rico after a tripping-and-falling incident. I had some medical expenses and wanted some advice. Rico listened to what I had to say and went to work for me. I can't thank him enough for all the work he did. He went way above and beyond my expectations. I can't say enough good things about him and his staff.

Rico listened to me, and was not just a wonderful attorney, but also a great friend throughout the process. Rico was a tremendous help to me and my family, and I am forever grateful. I could not have asked for a better attorney.
