Unlike other motor vehicle accidents, there are several ways in which motorcycle accidents occur, at times due to circumstances that are directly the fault of the motorcycle driver’s control. Motorcycle Accidents can be devastating as a rider is relatively unprotected against an oncoming car.

Injuries sustained in such an accident can lead to reduced earnings, medical expenses, the need for future medical care, and a reduced ability to enjoy life. Don't wait. Call if you have questions.
A life-changing head injury can occur within a matter of seconds. One blow to the head can cause lasting harm. This harm may include trauma, brain damage, reduced motor skills, slurred speech, vertigo, hindered vision, etc. Those harmed by such injuries often need extensive and ongoing medical care. The victim will need to be compensated for this care as well as for the injury itself.
