Collisions between motorcycles and much heavier vehicles are tragedies that happen far too frequently. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that more than 34,000 motorcyclists died over a seven-year period and approximately 1,222,000 required treatment for motorcycle-related injuries.
Even more staggering is the fact that many such accidents are caused by the carelessness of other drivers.

Our motorcycle accident attorneys have more than 200 combined years of experience helping injured bikers and their families recover the financial compensation they deserve.
Long-Term Injuries Require Long-Term Compensation
While drivers of passenger cars and semi trucks are surrounded by protective metal, motorcycle riders have no such barrier between themselves and their surroundings. Therefore, in collisions, riders frequently sustain the most catastrophic physical damage, including:
- Crushed or Mangled Limbs
- Road Rash/Abrasions
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Wrongful Death
In many cases, these types of serious injuries require months or years of medical treatment, including reconstructive surgeries, rehabilitation, therapy sessions and much more. Victims may also require prosthetics, wheelchairs, home remodeling and other accommodations, depending on their specific needs.
Our law firm will help you pursue the full amount of money you need to receive high-quality care both now and into the future.
