Injured bikers have an uphill climb to recovery, but a lawyer can help
Any collision can have life-altering consequences, but there are several factors that make motorcycle crashes especially dangerous. First, bikers have little protection compared to people in enclosed vehicles. We've seen many bikers sustain catastrophic injuries such as:
- Head and brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Lost limbs
- Biker's arm
- Broken bones
- Road rash
Because the injuries are so serious, medical expenses and other losses may be high. That means the hurt doesn't stop just because the crash itself is over. For the insurance company, your injuries are just exposure to their bottom line. They'll use every trick in the book to delay, deny or dispute your claim, while you're just trying to get your life back together.
Motorcycle accident cases are tough - but our lawyers know how to win
The insurance companies have a built-in advantage in motorcycle crash cases because they know the public has a bias against bikers. They'll try to put the blame for the crash on you. In the District, thanks to "contributory negligence" laws, even being partially responsible is enough to completely bar you from recovering damage.

We painstakingly review crash reports and interview witnesses to build the strongest possible case to get you the compensation you deserve.
