representation for accidents involving negligent motorists
The majority of accidents involving a motorcycle have nothing to do with the bike. As most riders are unfortunately aware, drivers in automobiles often engage in negligent and dangerous behaviors that put the motorcycle community at risk. At the Motorcycle Law Group, we have decades of experience dealing with these specific kinds of cases and strive to get you the compensation that you deserve.
While we mostly think of distracted driving as cell phone use, drivers can have their attention pulled away from the road for a variety of reasons. Whether that’s visual (rubbernecking at a roadside accident), manual (trying to change the radio station), or cognitive (daydreaming or talking to a passenger), any of these kinds of distractions take the driver’s focus off the wheel and can lead to accidents with devastating consequences.
As more people use Uber, Lyft, and other rideshare companies, the risk of being involved in an accident with one of these vehicles has also increased. In a study conducted by researchers from the University of Chicago and Rice University, the advent of rideshare services was correlated with an overall rise in traffic-related deaths by about two-to-three percent between 2011 and 2016. Because of the multiple parties involved, cases related to rideshare accidents come with their own unique complexities. The Motorcycle Law Group has specific experience in this area, providing our clients with the most knowledgeable legal support they can find.
Uninsured Motorist Claims
Studies have found that as many as one in eight motorists in the United States do not have any type of insurance to cover damages if they get into a crash. Others only carry the minimum required in their state, which often does not adequately compensate accident victims for their damages. If you have been the victim of an accident involving an uninsured motorist, the Motorcycle Law Group can fight to get you the maximum compensation possible.
Drunk Driving Accidents
Accidents caused by intoxicated drivers are some of the most deadly, and motorcyclists can be particularly at-risk because of the limited protection a bike provides. While negligence and liability are often more easily determined when alcohol is at play, the severity and legal complexity of these types of cases means hiring an experienced attorney is crucial to winning your case.
