Frequently Asked Questions From Our Clients About Motorcycle Accident Cases:
How Much is my Motorcycle Accident Case Worth?
If you were injured in a motorcycle accident that was not your fault, you may be able to collect money damages for the injuries you suffered.

The amount you will be able to recover depends on the specific facts of your case. An experienced motorcycle accident lawyer can assess your case and make sure you get the best settlement possible.

How Much are the Legal Fees for my Motorcycle Case?
The standard legal fee in personal injury cases is 1/3 of any settlement or award you receive in your case. Our law firm does not charge any fees until an award or settlement has been secured on your behalf. We cover the costs of obtaining medical records and investigating your case. Once you do receive a settlement or award, we charge the industry standard 1/3 fee.
What Should I do Right After Being Involved in a Motorcycle Accident?
Being in any accident can be a scary experience, especially when you or a loved one is injured. Motorcycle accidents present special circumstances due to the fact that the motorcyclist is at a greater risk for serious injury. Here are several steps to take to protect yourself if you are involved in an accident:
- Get to a safe, secure location if you are able.
- Seek immediate medical attention for your injuries.
- Call the police or 911 to report the accident.
- Collect the contact and insurance information of the other driver.
- Get the names and contact information of any witnesses.
- Document everything you can about the accident.
- Take pictures of the scene of the accident if you can.
- Contact an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer for help.
What Are Common Injuries that Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Deal With?
Injuries associated with a motorcycle accident can be severe due to the nature of riding a motorcycle. Here is a list of some of the more common injuries seen in these types of accidents:
- Head injuries, traumatic brain injury, concussions, and brain damage
- Spinal cord injuries, back injuries, and neck injuries
- Broken or fractured bones, especially in the joints (elbows, shoulders, hips, knees, wrists, pelvis)
- Road rash, scrapes, cuts, gashes, and severe bruising
- Scarring and disfigurement that have the potential of requiring significant skin graft repairs
- Damage to internal organs and internal bleeding
- Soft tissue injuries and nerve damage
What If My Motorcycle Had Defective Parts?
Before each ride, motorcyclists should perform a full inspection of the bike. Like any vehicle, motorcycles need to be properly maintained. Owners should be careful to keep the engine in proper working condition, inspect tires, lights, brakes, and other equipment on the vehicle to make sure it will perform properly and reliably on the road. Even when these precautions are taken, defective motorcycle parts can cause serious injury to a rider. In these cases, injured riders should speak to a motorcycle accident lawyer about whether the manufacturer of the bike, the manufacturer of a defective part or the garage where the motorcycle received maintenance can be held responsible.
Why Should I Hire an Experienced Motorcycle Accident Lawyer?
The insurance company will usually offer you the least amount of money possible in order to settle your case quickly and save money. An experienced lawyer can help make sure this does not happen to you and that you receive the best settlement possible for your injuries. In addition, an experienced lawyer can review your medical records and monitor your treatment to make sure your case is not settled until your treatment is complete. Motorcycle accident cases can be complex, and may require hiring an accident expert. Hiring a lawyer to facilitate this process can ensure that you are fully compensated. Read More.
What Are Some Recommended Safety Measures for Motorcyclists?
Wear a full-face helmet. Make sure the helmet is your size, fits properly, and is secure before you get on the bike. Wear motorcycle-specific protective gear (leather jacket, reinforced denim/textile pants). Ensure your apparel is high-visibility, so other motorists can see you (bright colors, adorned with reflective strips). Use headlights and turn signals. Complete a Motorcycle Safety Foundation Course, and always follow the rules of the road.
