Compensation For a Motorcycle Crash

A law-abiding motorcyclists who is badly injured by a negligent driver does not always win sympathy. The general public has a somewhat negative attitude toward motorcyclist, thinking of them as reckless as a motorcyclist splits lanes when the rest of the freeway is grinding to a halt. Stereotypes about "bikers" can cloud the truth, including the perceptions of insurance adjusters, jury members, witnesses and even police officers investigating a motorcycle accident.

We work hard to establish the facts about who really caused the accident, and to secure full compensation for your injuries. Our office has a solid record of verdicts and settlements in all types of motor vehicle accidents, including motorcycle accidents. Contact us today if you or a family member was seriously injured as the operator or passenger on a motorcycle.

Proving What Happened

More so than other accidents, it may be necessary to prove fault in a motorcycle accident. The driver who runs into the motorcyclist usually says the biker was speeding or otherwise reckless. But a reconstruction of the crash and witness testimony often reveals that the car driverís error was the true cause of the accident. Common motorcycle accident fact scenarios include:

  • A driver turning directly in front of a motorcyclist
  • A driver cutting off a motorcyclist
  • Entering traffic from a driveway or parking spot
  • A driver's failure to yield at an intersection or running a stop sign or red light
  • A driver's inattention while driving past a motorcyclist
  • A driver's failure to look both ways when resuming travel after stopping at a stop
    sign
  • A driver impaired by drugs or alcohol
