Attorneys for Motorcycle Accidents
Every year thousands of motorcyclists are injured when other drivers fail to pay attention. It goes without saying that these injuries are often exacerbated by the fact that, by definition, motorcyclists do not have the increased protection provided by cars. Our firm has handled many motorcycle cases, often involving in-depth legal issues. If you or a loved one were injured while riding a motorcycle, it may benefit you to talk with one of our attorneys.

Refuting False Claims and Holding Negligent Drivers Responsible
At our firm, we are aware of the risk that there can be an unfair, inherent bias against riders of motorcycles and bicycles amongst the general public. Our lawyers, however, understand and appreciate the distinct characteristics of motorcycles and special concerns associated with riding them. We recognize how often other drivers:
- Claim they could not see a motorcyclist before turning, changing lanes or making other maneuvers
- Are guilty of driving while drunk or impaired, or “distracted driving” due to cell phone use or other activities known to cause traffic accidents
- Fail to exercise basic caution and stay alert to the fact that all types of vehicles share our roads
Experience and Resources to Prove the Costs of Your Disabling Injuries
Beyond this understanding of the causes of motorcycle accidents, we have access to an extensive network of qualified experts capable of demonstrating the often-lifelong impact and costs of serious injuries. When building the best case requires doctors, vocational rehabilitation specialists, life care planners or economists, we know who to call.
