Personal Injury Lawyers – Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
Significant physical and financial consequences of motorcycle accident
Motorcyclists understand the dangers of riding the streets and highways. Cars, trucks and bus drivers often fail to see motorcycles at intersections and when changing lanes, blaming motorcycle riders for their actions. The physical and financial consequences of motorcycle crashes are significant, and our motorcycle accident attorneys are aware of the enormous medical bills and serious injuries that motorcyclists are faced with after a collision.
Recovering medical costs, lost wages and other damages can be difficult as insurance companies will attempt to place part of the liability for the accident on the motorcycle and refuse to pay a fair settlement. The motorcyclist involved in an accident with a car, truck or bus is going to come out with substantial injuries due to the lack of protection. A motorcyclist will typically suffer brain injuries, broken bones, spinal cord injuries leading to paraplegia or quadriplegia, severe scarring, limb amputations, internal organ damage, and death.
Assessing liability and responsibility
Drivers who are distracted while talking on cell phones will run stop signs and ignore traffic signals, travel too fast, and generally not pay attention to the road and traffic around them. Many times as the driver is distracted, when they collide with a motorcycle, they immediately blame the motorcycle rider as being reckless, speeding and causing the accident. In motorcycle crashes, it’s not uncommon for insurers to claim a motorcycle rider shares partial fault for causing an accident. Insurers may argue a motorcycle did not change lanes properly, remained in the blind spot of the driver, or failed to come to a complete stop at an intersection. That is why our lawyers work with experienced accident investigators to build a strong case for our clients. Using accident investigators, we measure skid marks, consult with accident reconstructionists, interview eyewitnesses, and analyze evidence from an accident scene in order to establish fault to the negligent vehicle drivers who caused the collision.
Our injury accident lawyers understand how to investigate motorcycle accidents, the injuries and damages that are the consequences of a motorcycle accident and understand the steps that insurance companies will take to reduce the liability of their insured and the claim amount.
