Helpful Attorneys Devoted To Serving Injured Bikers
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration data indicate that motorcycling injuries are on the rise, with an excess of 4,600 motorcyclists suffering fatal injuries every year. Motorcyclists are exposed to dangers that other drivers simply aren’t. The combination of minimal padding, high speeds, close proximity to the pavement and smaller size makes for extreme danger when other drivers are not paying proper attention.
If you or someone close to you has suffered a motorcycle accident due to negligence, you deserve all the compensation necessary to heal, elevate your quality of life and fully recover. Our team is here for you at Colley Shroyer Abraham.
A Record Of Recovering Compensation For Victims
We have obtained tens of millions of dollars in our decades of practice. In one $400,000 settlement, our client was traveling northbound on I-71 and run off the road by a semi truck. Our client suffered significant injuries but did recover. The truck driver claimed that the motorcycle driver was at fault.
We are ready to work on any motorcycling case involving:
- Municipal liability
- Repair shop and product liability
- Driver negligence
- Distracted drivers (texting/cellphone usage)
- Blind spot accidents
- Rear-end collisions
- Sudden lane changes
- Improper obstructions
Regardless of the circumstances of your injury or motor vehicle accident case, we strongly encourage you to get in touch as soon as possible. In addition to the fact that insurance adjusters can and will take action that protects their own interests, it is important to protect your rights and contact us so we can start building a case as soon as possible. Our attorneys are dedicated to your success.
What Do You Want To Know About Motorcycle Crash Claims?
Grappling with medical treatment, insurance issues and a potential personal injury claim after a crash is not easy. We understand. Our lawyers can provide answers to the many questions that you probably have about motorcycle accidents.
What are the most common injuries in motorcycle accidents?
The severe nature of motorcycle crashes means that bikers often have life-altering injuries. Some of the most common include:
- Road rash
- Bone fractures
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord damage
- Partial or total paralysis
Far too often, these injuries result in wrongful death.
What is the difference between an insurance claim and a personal injury lawsuit?
You file an insurance claim with your insurance provider or that of the other party involved in the crash to recover compensation for your damages. However, sometimes the insurance companies do not offer the amount that you deserve. In these instances, you go through the court system to file a personal injury lawsuit against them. Rare situations also involve filing a personal injury lawsuit directly against the other person or party involved.
What is the statute of limitations for a claim?
In Ohio, you must file a personal injury lawsuit two years of the date of your accident. If you do not, you lose the right to recover financial compensation.
