Motorcycle Accidents and Injuries

When a motorcycle rider is involved in a collision, the injuries are more often than not catastrophic. We have seen hundreds of situations where cars or trucks pulled out in front of motorcycles or turned left in front of them because they just do not seem to see them. It is the rare case where the rider is not severely injured.

The same rules of the road apply in all vehicle cases, but we have unique experience in dealing with the particular types of injuries that occur in motorcycle collisions.

Our record of success in motorcycle accidents is very good. We obtained a verdict in excess of $6 million in DeKalb County for a motorcycle injury, and have obtained many policy limit settlements for motorcycle injuries.

A policy limit settlement is many times the best that can be obtained. Most people are what would be considered judgment proof, in that they have no assets that could be obtained to satisfy a judgment against them. In short, for most people, the only asset that they have when they cause an injury to someone else is the limits of the insurance policy on their vehicle. In these and all types of vehicle claims, your own policy of insurance can provide coverage to you for another=s negligence in accord with the uninsured and underinsured motorist provisions of your own policy. The best way to ensure yourself full and fair recovery and to protect yourself against a catastrophic injury is to have appropriate uninsured and underinsured motorist limits on your own insurance policy. Time limits apply, so do not delay.
