Injured In A Serious Motorcycle Accident?
In an accident involving a car or truck, the occupants are protected by seatbelts, airbags, and other safety features. Even the vehicle itself can shield the occupants from the life-changing injuries that could occur if the occupant were ejected. In a motorcycle accident, the victim is completely exposed – to the road, to other vehicles, and to stationary objects into which he or she can be thrown. Even when wearing a motorcycle helmet and other protective gear, the motorcyclist can suffer exponentially more severe injuries than those suffered by many other car accident victims.

Recovering Injury Compensation Following A Motorcycle Crash
The costs of emergency room treatment, endless imaging tests, and hospital care can accumulate to hundreds of thousands of dollars in just days following the motorcycle accident, particularly if the motorcycle accident victim suffers from a coma or sustains a catastrophic injury, such as a traumatic brain injury (TBI) or a spinal cord injury (such as paraplegia or quadriplegia).
Expenses associated with ongoing treatment, such as inpatient rehabilitation, long-term physical therapy, ongoing prescriptions and medical supplies, vocational rehabilitation, and other long-term medical needs can engulf the entire family of a motorcyclist dealing with such life-changing injuries. Getting these expenses paid for can be a challenge, especially when many people immediately place the blame for the crash on the motorcyclist.
Experience, Dedication And Skill
Our personal injury attorneys, however, understand that many motorcycle accidents are actually caused by the negligence of other inattentive drivers on the road – drivers who fail to comply with following-distance laws, fail to make turns without checking blind spots, and fail to comply with other traffic laws. Through our diligent investigation and case preparation, many of our lawyers are AV-rated* and work relentlessly to advocate for clients’ interests by demonstrating how the other driver’s negligence caused our clients’ suffering.
