Motorcycles are fun, but given today’s traffic and drivers’ inconsiderate behavior, negotiating roads can be treacherous. Motorcyclists are hit daily by cars, trucks, and other large vehicles. These accidents never end well. Injuries can be devastating, taking months to heal. Victims are often left with crippling disabilities, unable to lead everyday lives. If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident, you need a lawyer who will fight for you and get you the monetary compensation you deserve.

The Investigative Process
Accident investigators, a part of our team, research all the accident details through interviews, police reports, and medical documentation. Accident reconstruction combined with expert and onsite witnesses supports an air-tight case difficult for insurance companies to challenge in court.
The Insurance Company Battles
Insurance companies, by nature, are designed to resist payouts. We rarely settle for a penny less in compensation. Calculations for medical bills and other payouts are always realistic, leaving insurance companies with little room for argument. Our attorneys are in touch with plaintiffs throughout the entire litigation process. All final settlement offers are presented to victims and subject to their approval.
Once it’s determined how much your motorcycle accident case is worth, the negotiation process with the insurance company begins. In the interests of full disclosure, negotiations can be settled within a few weeks or months; other times, it may take longer, especially if the case is complicated, and you have suffered catastrophic injuries. In the latter instance, quick acceptance of monetary offerings by insurance companies, no matter how generous, may not always be the best move. Long-term medical rehabilitation bills can run into the thousands and must be calculated into the settlement. A good lawyer will have the documents to prove current and future medical costs.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 5,579 motorcyclists in the United States were involved in a fatal traffic accident in 2020. Thanks to the size and weight of other vehicles on the road, especially tractor-trailers, motorcyclists face a greater risk of serious injury and death. They are 29 times more likely to die in a motor vehicle crash and four times more likely to be injured than a car driver or passenger.
By law, a personal representative of the deceased person’s estate can sue for wrongful death in motorcycle accidents. The following damages can be sought by your lawyer:
- Burial expenses
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of future income
- Pain and suffering
