Hurt In A Motorcycle Crash? Seek Legal Help From A Fellow Rider.
It’s hard to fully appreciate the joys and challenges of riding a motorcycle without direct experience. Unfortunately, most personal injury lawyers have never ridden, and many even dislike bikers. How can you expect someone to fight for you when that’s their starting point?
If you’ve been seriously injured in a motorcycle crash, the firm to call is the Law Offices Of Charles T. Conrad I’m firm founder Chuck Conrad, a proud Army vet, an attorney with more than 30 years of experience and a dedicated biker for the last 15 years. I’ve helped hundreds of clients nationwide, and I can help you, too. While my specialty is motorcycle accidents, I can also assist with other auto accident claims as well.
Common Motorcycle Crash Scenarios And Causes
Most motorcycle accidents – at least those involving other vehicles – are caused by the negligent actions of drivers. In the vast majority of cases I see, crashes are caused by other drivers who were distracted while talking, texting or emailing on their cell phones. Distracted drivers can cause very serious crashes when their attention is diverted from the road and they fail to see motorcyclists.
Other common accident causes and scenarios include:
- Left-turn accidents, often involving a careless driver turning across the path of an oncoming biker
- Failure to yield right of way
- Failure to keep a lookout
- Passing too closely and/or tailgating
- Drunk driving
- Speeding and aggressive driving
- Fatal crashes
When you hire my firm, I will thoroughly investigate the cause of your accident and work to prove that the other driver was at fault. I will also work tirelessly to combat anti-biker bias that could weaken your claim.
Accidents Due To Dangerous Road Conditions And Construction
Road conditions and construction zones can cause us to “go down” due to a number of hazards. In a construction zone, the signage and orange cones might be in the wrong place. The trees and bushes along the road can make it difficult to see a stop sign. There might be improper lane markings on the roadway.
Oftentimes, dangerous road conditions and construction zones give an injured motorcyclist a valid claim for injuries. If you were injured due to road conditions, I can help you explore your options.
Assessing Injuries And Fighting For Compensation
For all the reasons you might expect, bikers are much more likely to suffer serious injuries or death in a crash than drivers are. These include:
- Head and traumatic brain injuries
- Neck and spinal cord injuries
- Broken bones and fractures
- Severe skin abrasions (road rash)
- Partial or complete paralysis (paraplegia and quadriplegia)
My firm will help you seek full and fair compensation for your injuries, lost wages from time out of work, property damage and other losses.
