    Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

    A motorcycle crash can be life-altering for the victim. The most common motorcycle accident injuries include whiplash, soft tissue damage, broken bones, and traumatic brain injury. A terrible collision can cost the victim thousands upon thousands of dollars in medical bills and car repairs, in addition to wage loss from missing work to recover. A victim of a motorcycle accident is likely to deal with both physical and emotional pain. 

    Uncovering the cause of the accident is one of the first steps in obtaining compensation. The party that caused the wreck may have to financially cover your medical bills and motorcycle repairs. Your lawyer can investigate the accident further to gather evidence that supports your side of the story. Causes of a motorcycle accident may include:

    • The roadway. Motorcyclists are particularly vulnerable to even minor defects in the road. If gravel, rubble, potholes, storm debris, or an unsafe construction site causes the wreck, you may have a case against the city for failing to maintain its road property. 
    • A car driver. A distracted or reckless driver may crash into a motorcyclist due to no fault of the rider. The driver may have been using their cell phone, drinking, speeding, or engaging in other risky driving behaviors moments prior to the collision. 
    • A motor vehicle part. Examples of automobile defects that may cause a crash include brake failure, tire blowout, and electrical problems. The motorcycle manufacturer may be held responsible for damages and losses that ensued because of the flawed part. 

    Unfortunately, after a serious motorcycle accident, it isn’t uncommon for victims to feel like no one is on their side to help at this time. Insurance companies are all too quick to watch out for their own pocketbook instead of the interests of their clients who have been paying into insurance coverage. Your lawyer has only your best in mind, and can advocate for your right to receive fair compensation. 

    Contact a motorcycle accident lawyer from Barry P. Goldberg today for the legal support and guidance you need.
