You Have The Same Rights As Other Drivers

When a motorcycle crashes, many people instinctively blame the rider. However, drivers of motorcycles have the same rights as drivers of cars and vehicles, and they enjoy the same right to seek compensation for injuries suffered in an accident.

At Rapoport Weisberg & Sims P.C. our personal injury lawyers help motorcycle riders seek payment for damages and expenses after an accident.

This may include:

  • Past and future income loss
  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Other costs of a crash

Our law firm has the resources to take motorcycle cases as far as needed to secure fair verdicts or settlements. As trial lawyers, we are always prepared to go to court to obtain the payment a client needs.

Legal Protection For Any Type Of Injury

People injured in motorcycle accidents often suffer devastating injuries, including:

  • Head and brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Lacerations and other skin injuries
  • Burns
  • Multiple fractures

Because they are often thrown from the cycle or dragged by the other vehicle, victims of motorcycle crashes often suffer severe road rash, a term for the skin injury characterized by pebbles and gravel being embedded in the skin. This is a remarkably painful condition that requires multiple costly treatments over the course of many weeks or months.

We also handle wrongful death cases for the families of riders who died in motorcycle crashes.

Calculating The Value Of An Accident

We consult accident reconstructionists, measure skid marks, photograph the scene of the accident and interview witnesses. We consult with medical specialists to understand fully the extent of the victim’s injuries and the effect upon his or her life, career and family. We ask life care planners and vocational specialists to provide estimates of the cost of care and whether our client will be able to return to work. The contributions of these experts allow our attorneys to determine the full cost of your injuries.
