Our firm takes great pride in representing motorcyclists who have been injured in accidents. Both of our name partners ride motorcycles and between them, they have over 40 years experience on various kinds of motorcycles. We have represented many injured riders. When necessary, we have gone to great lengths to reconstruct how an accident happened. In one case involving a van and a motorcycle, we located the same exact model van and motorcycle that were involved in the accident and produced a video re-enactment of the crash to prove that the van driver was at fault by entering the motorcyclist’s lane and causing the van’s front bumper to come into contact with the motorcycle’s rear tire.
Representing motorcycle riders who have been in accidents can require extra care because the general public is prejudiced against motorcyclists. Potential jurors do not understand that most motorcycle riders are normal people who just like motorcycles. Instead, many potential jurors think that all motorcyclists are irresponsible riders who take unnecessary risks. The law does not treat motorcycle riders fairly. For example, motorcyclists are usually not entitled to “No Fault” medical benefits. This means that if you are injured in a motorcycle accident and you do not have medical insurance through your job or paid for on your own, you can have great difficulty paying for necessary medical care. Unfortunately motorcycle accident injuries can be catastrophic. We have the expertise and resources to consult with life care planners, economists and actuaries to obtain meaningful compensation based on the injuries you sustained in the crash.
