A law firm trusted to fight for injured bikers
Motorcycle accidents in the District can happen fast, but the consequences can last a lifetime. If you’ve been hurt in a crash, you may be out of work for weeks or months. You might even be permanently disabled, or you may have lost a loved one in a motorcycle crash. And finding a way to rebuild your life is a serious challenge.
Injured bikers have an uphill climb to recovery
Any motor vehicle accident can have life-altering consequences, but there are several factors that make motorcycle accidents especially dangerous. First, bikers have little protection compared to people in enclosed vehicles. We’ve seen many motorcyclists 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, your medical expenses and other losses may be high. And 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 put your life back together.
Motorcycle accident cases are tough – but we know how to win
The insurance companies have a built-in advantage in motorcycle accident cases because they know the public has a bias against motorcycle riders. They’ll try to put the blame for the crash on you. And in the District, thanks to “contributory negligence” laws, even being partially responsible is enough to completely bar you from recovering damage.
It’s a tough battle to be sure, but we know how to fight and how to win. We painstakingly review accident reports and interview witnesses to build the strongest possible case for the compensation you deserve. We fight hard in negotiations and at trial, and the insurance companies know we’re serious about standing up for injured bikers.
