People who don't ride motorcycles don't understand that riding a motorcycle is different from driving a car. That lack of understanding results in accidents, injuries and unnecessary deaths for bikers. It can also make it difficult for injured people and families to get fair compensation from an insurance company or a jury.

Juries Don't Understand Motorcycles
A motorcycle cannot stop as fast as many people expect. When a car makes a sudden left-hand turn in front of a motorcycle, the biker gets hurt. A motorcycle also cannot handle bad road conditions as easily as many cars. If a car driver doesn't see the biker beside or behind him and changes lanes, forcing the biker onto the shoulder of the road, the motorcycle can easily lay down.
Motorcycles do not offer the protection of a car, and a severe injury does not mean the motorcyclist was riding in an unsafe manner. If it was the fault of the car driver that the biker suffered injuries or died in a fatal crash, our attorney has the resources to investigate the crash and prove your case.
Proving The True Cost Of Your Injuries
We frequently work with vocational rehab specialists and physical capacity evaluators who can help us understand what your long-term prospects for recovery are. We can work with life care planners to understand the day-to-day care needs a family may face if a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury or become quadriplegic. An economist can help us understand the effects of lost wages over the course of a lifetime.
This is the kind of information necessary to demonstrate the true cost of your injuries and to ensure you receive fair, full and just compensation.
