Get relief from the consequences of motorcycle injuries

Motorcycle accidents tend to be quite different from most other vehicular accidents. The small size of motorcycles and the exposure of riders produce different physics in an accident, and an attorney who undertakes a motorcycle accident case must understand the science involved. The attorney should also be familiar with factors such as prejudice against motorcyclists, the value of custom motorcycle parts, driver behavior and more.

As in most vehicle accidents, the first major step in the case is determining the cause of the accident and who is responsible. The causes might be careless driving, aggressive driving, poor road or weather conditions, or a myriad of other factors.

Consequences of a motorcycle accident might include:

  • Disfigurement
  • Amputation
  • Broken bones
