Raleigh Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

Identifying the Cause of a Motorcycle Collision

Of any type of motorist, a motorcyclist is the most likely to be seriously injured or killed in a traffic accident. Even if a rider is wearing a helmet and other protective gear, this is not 100% effective in preventing catastrophic injury. Motorcyclists are exposed and therefore prone to broken bones, road rash, brain injury, spinal cord injury, and other trauma. They need competent legal counsel to secure maximum compensation from the persons or companies that are to blame for their accidents.

As Raleigh motorcycle accident attorneys, one of our most important tasks is to determine the cause of a collision. We must analyze all available evidence and testimony to create a clear picture of the circumstances that led to the accident, and we must be able to explain and prove our findings. In proving cause, we can establish fault. In establishing fault, we can hold the correct party accountable. This results in a better outcome – a fair settlement or award that covers all of your medical bills, lost wages, and other losses or injuries.
