Motorcycle Accident ATTORNEYS
Motorcycles in and of themselves aren't dangerous. But people who drive without seeing motorcycles endanger everyone on the road. Motorcycle accident lawyers can make all the difference.
Driving a motorcycle is not in and of itself inherently dangerous. However, when a motorcycle is involved in a crash, it is about 26 times more likely to be fatal and 5 times more likely to involve an injury to the motorcyclist, according to the Insurance Information Institute.
We hold people accountable for their negligence, hoping that as a result, drivers will start seeing motorcycles
If you are injured while riding a motorcycle, and it isn't your fault, you are not without recourse. If you find yourself in this position, you will want your focus to be on healing from your injuries. Let us deal with the insurance company, the other driver's attorney, and the courts, if necessary, to make sure your medical bills are paid for, and you are compensated for all of your other losses.
How to recover from a motorcycle crash in as quick and smooth a way as possible
As attorneys, we are tasked with proving that the other party is at fault. Although the police officer may have made a preliminary finding of fault and ticketed one or more of the drivers, the police officer's finding is inadmissible at court (it's hearsay), and is often wrong. Whereas the police officer does a several-minute investigation at the scene, our investigation takes months and involved in-depth interviews (called depositions) with the parties involved in the accident, and witnesses. We also often hire experts who reconstruct the accident and collect other data, like cell phone records, to see if the other driver was using their phone when the accident occurred.
We also collect evidence of your losses, including medical bills, wage-loss information, prescription costs, pain and suffering, and all other monetary and non-monetary losses.
We can do all of this because we have the subpoena power of the courts.
