Serving Those Affected by Motorcycle Injuries

Motorcyclists face high risks on the road. Lack of protection from other vehicles makes severe motorcycle a constant danger.

Even when proper protective gear is worn, motorcyclists are vulnerable to severe injury or fatality. We know that motorcyclist are passionate about riding and their bikes, and our firm is committed to providing the best service to riders who have been seriously injured or killed.

Eligibility for Motorcycle Accident Lawsuits

Do You Have a Case to Pursue?

When a preventable accident occurs, victims and their families are entitled to financial compensation for the damage and loss that result. We evaluate cases carefully to determine whether the accident was preventable and who is at fault. When you are the victim to another party’s wrongdoing, we work to get you the verdict and settlement you deserve, fighting against large corporations and insurance carriers who often try to undermine plaintiffs. To win a lawsuit, the plaintiff must prove the following:

  • That the defendant owed them a legal duty (responsible driving, proper road maintenance, safety in manufacturing, etc.)
  • That the defendant was negligent in this duty
  • That the defendant’s negligence directly caused your injury
  • That you have suffered damage and loss as a result of the accident

Identifying Accident Cause

Proving Fault & Negligence

A primary aspect of our role is to determine the cause of your motorcycle accident. Though every case is different, there are common causes of motorcycle accidents that result in proving negligence and determining fault, including:

  • Driving impaired by alcohol or drugs
  • Driving while distracted
  • Speeding
  • Running red lights
  • Changing lanes recklessly
  • Securing cargo improperly
  • Overloading large trucks
  • Manufacturing defective auto parts
  • Not properly maintaining roadways

Getting Compensation for Injured Motorcyclists

Easing the Burden for Victims and Their Families

Motorcyclists often face life-changing injuries when involved in an accident. Many motorcycle accidents result in severe trauma, including:

  • Brain injuries
  • Neck, back, and spinal cord injuries
  • Permanent disability or paralysis
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of limbs
  • Severe burns

These injuries require significant and often ongoing medical care, and recovery is long and painful. It’s not uncommon for injuries of this kind to require life-long medical needs. Because of that, we at Edwards Kirby fight to get victims the compensation required to ease financial burdens and help improve quality of life. We not only work to prove a defendant’s fault and liability, but also with medical experts to determine the nature and extent of damage caused to our clients, whether it be past, present, or future.

Recoverable damages in the case of motorcycle accidents may include:

  • Medical bills
  • Expenses for medications and medical devices
  • Expenses for continuing care
  • Past and future income loss due to injury
  • Physical and emotional suffering
  • Other economic or non-economic damages
