Motorcycle Accidents

It is not uncommon for people to hear the news of a motorcycle accident and assume that the rider was at fault. Unfortunately, many riders face the stigma of being a reckless vehicle operator or a thrill-seeker. While that may be the impression shared by many drivers, motorcyclists have as much of a right to be on the road as those in cars or trucks.

Without the benefit of vehicle safety features, motorcycle riders will typically suffer the worst injuries in any type of collision. Since they are often only protected by heavy clothing and a helmet, riders can suffer brain injuries, broken bones, spinal cord injuries, road rash or paralysis. In some extreme cases, motorcycle accidents can be fatal.

A serious accident can dramatically impact every aspect of your life — and the lives of your loved ones. You need an attorney who can fight to protect your future and give you the time you need to heal without worrying about financial devastation. Either through negotiation with the at-fault party's insurance carrier or representing you in courtroom litigation, we will fight to recover monetary compensation for lost wages, medical bills and property damages. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you might require surgery, a lengthy hospital stay or physical therapy that lasts months or years. Count on us to fight for your best interests.

Motorcycle accidents can result from numerous factors, including:

  • Debris in the road
  • Cars or trucks turning through an intersection without seeing a motorcycle
  • Cars or trucks exiting a parking lot without seeing a motorcycle
  • Cars or trucks changing lanes without seeing a motorcycle

The lack of safety equipment and the small size of the vehicle can lead to devastating injuries. It is crucial that you contact a motorcycle wreck attorney to discuss your case.
