Motorcycle Accident Attorney

While motorcycles have the same legal right that cars and trucks to occupy space on city streets and highways, the similarity of circumstances ends there. The deck is stacked against motorcyclists in a number of ways:

A motorcycle is harder to control than a car is on streets with defects or hazards such as salt and on the road, potholes, rough surfaces due to construction and hazardous weather conditions.

The margin of error is not very great when a motorcycle traveling at a high speed encounters obstacles or cars driven by people who claim “not to see” the motorcycles.

A motorcyclist’s injuries are apt to be more serious than those of someone driving an automobile. Very few motorcyclists involved in crashes simply have a sprained ankle. Catastrophic injuries and fatalities are not uncommon in motorcycle crashes.

Some motorcyclists are well trained, well experienced and in good control of their vehicle as well as in charge in traffic. Others, for whatever reason, are more prone to accidents and mistakes. Baby boomers who see their years of freedom drawing to a close are trying to live out unfulfilled dreams in many cases — and for some, that means acquiring a motorcycle and learning to ride at a fairly advanced age.

While some insurers, judges and juries may seem to have a built-in bias against motorcyclists, our clients who ride motorcycles are well represented and do not seem to suffer ill effects of discrimination, in our experience.

However a motorcycle accident happens, a strong legal representation may be just as critical as the best medical care when it comes to the long-term recovery prospects.

Bicycle Accident Lawyer

Pedestrian accidents may occur in a variety of circumstances:

When a pedestrian is crossing a street with the light

When a pedestrian is crossing a street against the light

When a pedestrian is jaywalking, not in a crosswalk

When a car, truck or motorcycle loses control and jumps the curb

Likewise, bicycle accidents occur in a variety of contexts including:

Biking on a city street, traveling with other traffic

Riding on a bike path that crosses a street (or doesn’t)

Riding in a recreational area, away from the cityaccident attorneys

Bicycles and pedestrians colliding in congested areas  More information here: @

Whatever the circumstances of a bicycle or pedestrian accident are, serious injuries and fatalities are not uncommon, particularly when a car or truck is involved. A bicyclist may or may not be wearing a helmet — but a helmet may not prevent neck injuries. A pedestrian is almost never wearing a helmet, and may well go flying into the air when hit by a car or truck resulting in pedestrian death or catastrophic injury.

Insurance matters can be complex in pedestrian and bicycle accident cases. An experienced personal injury lawyer knows the best likely sources of insurance benefits available to compensate the injured pedestrian or bicyclist — and is best prepared to deal with the complexities of making a major claim for compensation.

Burn Injury Lawyer

The skin is a complex organ covering most of the surface of the human body. Serious damage to the skin through “road burn” (often occurring in motorcycle accidents), thermal burns (as when a person is exposed to fire) or chemical burns (resulting from chemical spills — including Freon or gasoline leaking from a wrecked car onto passengers trapped in the car) can lead to complications such as the following:

A long healing period during which time the victim may be unable to work.

Risk of infection.

Pain — sometimes leading to a physical dependence on painkillers.

Disfigurement and/or scarring — and possibly, plastic surgery recommended down the road.

Depression and other psychological problems.

Potentially, psycho-social problems caused by isolation and awkwardness due to a dramatically changed appearance.

Whether a victim suffers a burn in an auto accident or an industrial accident, it is important to seek the highest quality medical treatment available from the start. If the victim does not have health insurance, a personal injury lawyer is a valuable source of help in this regard. At our personal injury law office, we regularly communicate with health care providers, sometimes persuading them to give health care to our clients while a personal injury claim is in the works.
