Motorcycle accident claims are notoriously complex. Insurance companies and law enforcement personnel are often biased against motorcycle riders. This bias can lead to them providing extra consideration to the excuses negligent drivers give after the crash. We carefully analyze accident reports to determine the at fault driver is held accountable. So often, motorcycle riders are overlooked on the roads when distracted or otherwise impaired drivers fail to notice them.

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Although the results of motorcycle accidents vary considerably, serious injuries are all too common. Common injuries include traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, road rash, and spinal cord injuries. Permanent nerve damage can be sustained as well as serious injury due to the extreme impact of the crash. These catastrophic injuries can result in medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and even long-term disability.
Care sustained after motorcycle accidents can help alleviate pain and help you recover from your injuries. But such care can result in tremendous medical expenses. Just the basic care that you receive in the emergency room often costs thousands of dollars. In many cases, you will require long-term care such as future surgeries, medications, and physical therapy.
You may not be able to return to work immediately or ever due to injuries sustained in your motorcycle crash. Obviously your motorcycle accident claim should account for lost wages and pain and suffering. Many times, however, the compensation settlement offer you receive from the insurance company will not take these factors into account. In some cases, the money you receive from the insurance company may not even be enough to cover your medical bills.
That is why it is important to speak with a motorcycle accident attorney as soon as possible after your crash. Insurance companies are looking out for their own bottom line and do not have your interests at heart. Our Ohio motorcycle accident lawyers put your needs first. We work for you, and strive to get you compensation that takes into account all that you have suffered due to your injuries.
In cases of a fatal motorcycle accident, we strive to take into account all of the present and future needs of the family. In such cases, the medical costs are only the tip of the iceberg. The loss of a father, husband, wife, or mother is devastating for a family. Medical costs received as part of the insurance coverage package do nothing to help the family in the future. In such delicate cases, we do all we can to help restore peace in the hearts and minds of the family of the motorcycle rider. This includes looking out for the present and future financial and emotional needs.
