Why Should I Hire an Attorney?
After a crash, the insurance company’s team of adjusters, investigators, and lawyers will work to minimize your compensation or to deny your claim. An experienced motorcycle accident attorney can make sure you don’t fall victim to insurance company tactics. If you are contacted by an insurance company adjuster after your accident, hang up the phone and contact us immediately. The sooner you contact our office, the sooner one of our experienced attorneys can begin investigating your accident and advocating on your behalf.
If you are struggling financially after your accident trying to pay for medical expenses and damages to your motorcycle, especially if you have been forced to miss work, it can be tempting to try to save money by representing yourself. However, this is a very risky move. The law is complex and difficult to navigate, and you have enough stress after an accident without trying to fight a legal battle you are unprepared for. A personal injury lawyer will likely be able to win you much more money than you would be able to secure for yourself, and with much less stress and confusion for you.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and other organizations, a third of motorcycle accidents are caused by the negligence of other drivers on the road. The top causes of motorcycle accidents are as follows:
- Speeding: It has been found that about 20% of motorcycle accident fatalities involved another driver who was speeding. The lack of protection provided by a motorcycle makes motorcyclists particularly vulnerable to speeding drivers and their reckless actions.
- Intersections: Intersections are dangerous for motorcycle riders because other drivers have a difficult time spotting motorcyclists while driving. Statistics reveal that 42% of motorcycle accidents occur in or near an intersection. Drivers have an even more difficult time seeing motorcyclists at intersections when they are traveling in excess of the speed limit.
- Road Conditions: Motorcycles have less traction than four-wheel vehicles and thus, are more likely to be involved in accidents. Loose gravel, wet road conditions, or potholes can make it more difficult for other speeding drivers to see motorcyclists or stop in time if they are out of control.
