Bicycle or Motorcycle Accident
Motorcycle and Bicycle Accidents
It is very rare for a motorcycle or bicycle accident to be minor. Crashes nearly always result in catastrophic injury or death. If a motorcyclist or bicyclist is lucky enough to survive a crash with a car, truck or bus, he or she very often suffers serious injuries such as broken bones or serious internal injuries is.
When They Say They "Didn't See" the Motorcycle or Bicycle
Motorcycle and bicycle accidents often occur to the total surprise of motorists who may claim not to have seen a bike before the crash. The motorcycle or bicycle may have been in the driver's blind spot, or the car or truck driver simply may not have been keeping a diligent lookout.
Storer & Steen Get to the Bottom of the Case
A thorough investigation of the collision as well as a detailed evaluation of the injured person's condition and prognosis are fundamental to a motorcycle and bicycle accident case. You need an attorney with experience handling motorcycle and bicycle accident claims backed by a track record of successful trial verdicts and settlements for past clients.
We Have Experience Overcoming Unfair Bias Against Motorcyclists and Bicyclists
At Storer & Steen, we are very familiar with the bias against motorcyclists and bicyclists shown by insurance companies and juries even when the driver of a car or truck clearly caused a serious accident involving a motorcycle or bicycle. We have experience overcoming this type of bias in motorcycle and bicycle accident cases with compelling arguments and relentless advocacy.
Our lawyers never take anything for granted or assume anything when investigating an accidental injury. Investigation of a bicycle or pedestrian accident may reveal surprises such as the fact that the motorist was under the influence of alcohol or otherwise impaired. Evaluating every potential cause of an accident is a personal injury lawyer's fundamental responsibility. Evaluating the physical and mental condition and prognosis of an injured bicyclist, pedestrian or driver of a car involved in a crash is vital for pursuing maximum compensation for the injured person's present and future needs.
