Motorcycle Accidents

Accidents involving motorcycles are all too common.   Other drivers will pull out in front of the motorcycle, or change lanes into them.  The at fault driver usually walks away without a scratch, but the motorcyclist often suffers terrible injuries.  Motorcyclists are more than five times as likely to be injured and about 28 times as likely as passenger car occupants to die in a motor vehicle traffic crash.1   While the motorcyclist is being taken to the hospital, the other driver will often tell their side of the story to the investigating officer.  Investigations into motorcycle wrecks are often done without the motorcyclist ever getting the opportunity to explain what really happened.  This means that the motorcyclist is often marked as being at fault in the wreck when they did nothing wrong, and the other driver’s insurance company often refuses to pay for the motorcyclist’s injuries.  If you or a loved one was involved in a motorcycle wreck, you need an experienced attorney who can deal with the insurance companies and make sure that you get everything you’re entitled to under the law.
