Motorcycle Crashes

Representing Riders Injured In Motorcycle Crashes

Bikers on motorcycles, mopeds, Vespas and motor scooters face many dangers on busy city streets. Certainly, one of the deadliest is the inattention of other drivers, including a sudden left turn in front of an oncoming motorcycle, a lane change without checking their blind spot and stopping so suddenly the motorcyclist behind the car can’t stop in time. These and other careless actions by car and truck drivers lead to serious injury and fatal crashes for motorcycle and scooter riders.

Hire The Right Attorney For Motorcycle Accident Representation

Motorcyclists who have been hurt in a collision often find the deck stacked against them when they try to get compensation. The insurance company looks for ways to shift the blame to the motorcyclist. Carriers argue that motorcyclists were being reckless. Likewise, jurors who do not ride motorcycles often consider motorcyclists risk takers.

Vehicle Accidents

There are two things to establish in any motor vehicle accident case: the cause of the accident (fault) and the full cost of the injuries and losses. As we prepare your case, we will investigate both of these.


Abuse & Molestation

 Priests, ministers, church officials and workers, coaches, teachers, day care workers, park rangers, and other trusted adults who sexually molest children, ruin lives and cause irreparable psychological damage.


& Serious Injuries

People suffering from a brain injury, spinal cord injury or other severe injury will require extensive medical treatment, rehabilitative therapy and other long-term care.



Claims related to sports and recreation injuries can be complicated. These cases often include issues involving waivers and the “assumption of risk” defense.


& Spine Injuries

When you or a loved one suffers a traumatic brain injury (TBI), life changes dramatically. Even mild TBIs can lead to years of recovery and rehabilitation.
