Motorcycle Accidents

If you ride a motorcycle or know someone who rides a motorcycle, you know riding on the street or open highway can be a dangerous proposition.

Defective-Product-Liability

There are very few “minor” motorcycle accidents. Motorcyclists enjoy the journey and being on the open road. Unfortunately, many motorists fail to appreciate or see motorcyclists on the road and the effects can be devastating.

We represent motorcycle riders and their passengers. We understand motorcycles operate differently from cars and trucks, which often make maneuvers leading into the path of motorcyclists. We have represented motorcycle riders who have sustained serious and debilitating injuries due to the negligence of other drivers.

Without exception, visibility, speed, position and actions all become relevant. Recently, we represented an individual who was operating his motorcycle when a commercial van turned directly into his path, leaving him no time to take evasive action. It took almost two hours to extract the motorcyclist from beneath the van and he miraculously survived. After a long hospital stay, multiple surgeries and significant physical therapy, our client was able to return to work, although at a reduced capacity.

Motorcyclists deserve to be treated fairly.

They deserve to occupy their lane of traffic, to travel safely in that lane and to be safe from motorists who fail to keep a proper lookout.

In another case, our motorcycle rider was riding on the roadway when a flatbed 18-wheeler crossed two lanes of traffic, stopping in the dark. By the time the motorcyclist identified the impending issue, it was too late. Fortunately, he survived and recovered from his devastating injuries.

We bring to our investigation an evaluation of the circumstances, using experts to assist in reconstructing the incident, if necessary. We appreciate the freedom of drive of motorcyclists and defend their rights to safely occupy a lane of traffic. Motorcyclists face a variety of issues including 18 wheelers, roadway construction, inattentive drivers, and a host of other hazards that drivers must identify and respond to in a timely fashion.
