Protecting You From Being Injured Again
Bikers face the risk of being injured twice: first by the driver who hit them and second by the driver’s insurance company.
It’s common for insurance companies to try to shift blame to the biker when a car and a motorcycle collide. Unfortunately, they are often successful. Many jurors view bikers as risk takers who drive fast and unsafely. In reality, most motorcycle accidents are caused not by the person on the motorcycle but by the person in the other vehicle. Careless and distracted drivers do not look for motorcycles. Here are some of the most common accidents:
- Drivers who pull out in front of motorcycles
- Drivers who make left turns in front of motorcycles
- Drivers who rear-end motorcycles stopped at intersections
- Drivers who sideswipe motorcycles
Our lawyers will fully investigate the accident to build a strong case of liability against the driver who hit you. Then we will seek the maximum compensation possible for everything you have lost.
