Hurdles to overcome in motorcycle accident cases
Motorcycles accelerate faster than cars and are less visible in traffic. Motorists often are unaware of a motorcycle until it is too late to avoid an accident. In addition, there is an element of biker bias that enters into some cases. Other drivers perceive motorcyclists as rebels or dangerous characters. While most motorists believe that the motorcyclist is at fault, this is generally not the case. Your attorney may need to overcome biker prejudice when dealing with an insurance company or presenting your case at trial.
Furthermore, motorcycles have little structure to cushion an impact during collision, which means injuries are frequently severe. Our firm also handles cases on behalf of loved ones seeking compensation in wrongful death lawsuit.
