Protect Your Rights After a Crash
If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident, the time to act is now. For over 25 years, our team’s extensive knowledge of Arizona motorcycle law has helped our clients obtain the compensation they need to move forward with their lives.
Arizona law permits you to file a claim up to two years from the date of the crash, allowing you to seek compensation for injuries that were not obvious in the immediate aftermath. If you have chronic pain or lingering medical issues resulting from your motorcycle accident, hiring an experienced attorney is paramount. Even if you were partially at fault, we may be able to recover a percentage of your damages — in the case of serious injury, the amount could be substantial.

Motorcycle Crash Lawyers Representing Phoenix, Tucson, Scottsdale, and Beyond
The moments after a motorcycle crash can feel like a blur: from the initial confusion about what has occurred to the sounds of sirens as you come to your senses and the feeling of your body being handled by medical professionals, it can all be very overwhelming. Most motorcycle crash victims report feeling little pain initially, even if their injuries are severe. Often, pain takes minutes to hours to develop. This is why getting transported to the emergency room is of utmost importance. Injuries can easily be overlooked, sometimes with disastrous results.
A concussion, or traumatic brain injury, is one of the most often overlooked injuries after a crash. Unfortunately, it is also one that can lead to permanent brain damage and even death. Minor concussions have few symptoms initially. You may feel a bit confused or have a bit of a headache. You may feel tired and just want to lay down and rest. With a minor concussion, you have not experienced a loss of consciousness, so you may feel that you are fine. But in the days following the crash, you may begin to notice symptoms.
You may experience recurring headaches, confusion, and an inability to concentrate. Your work may seem more difficult, and you might find it hard to follow stories. You might be more anxious than usual, or feel that your moods change rapidly. All these are signs of a concussion. If you experience a concussion, even a minor one, it is crucial to get medical attention. Failing to follow medical advice after a concussion can result in lingering aftereffects and can worsen damage to the brain.
Other severe injuries after a motorcycle crash in Arizona or beyond include fractures, soft tissue injuries, and back and neck injuries. If you have fractured a bone, it needs to be set by a doctor and usually requires wearing a cast for a period of time. This can mean that you are unable to work for a period of time. Rest assured, the experienced team of motorcycle lawyers at the Law Firm of Kass & Moses will fight to get you compensation for your time away from work, in addition to your pain and suffering and any other losses you have incurred. We will not stop until we have helped you recover a fair and just financial settlement.
Motorcycle Accident Statistics
When it comes to motorcycle accidents in Arizona and throughout the United States, the statistics are especially startling. The National Highway Transportation Safety Authority (NHTSA) has studied motorcycle and automobile accidents extensively. They found that bikers are 37 times more likely to be killed in an accident versus car drivers. This fact, alone, is frightening.
No one gets on their bike with the thought of death in mind. But sadly, each day there are bikers that do not make it home. For their families, their lives will never be the same again.
