Reliable & Aggressive Personal Injury Representation Since 1979
Motorcycles are a favored method of transportation for countless thrill-seekers and adventurers across the country. However, while the open road may embody freedom, it also represents an extreme danger for motorcyclists. It’s not unusual for car and truck drivers to feel anxious around motorcycles and act inappropriately or aggressively as a result. Their careless and negligent actions often jeopardize the lives of many motorcyclists in their vicinity. Consequently, the annual fatality rate for riders is 6 times that of car and commercial motor vehicle operators.

Pursuing Damages for Your Injuries
If you’ve been injured by a negligent, careless, or distracted party, you have the legal right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit that awards compensation for your past and future medical expenses, lost wages, and more. Riders tend to sustain severe injuries in collisions because they can only rely on their helmets and chosen protective gear for protection. These injuries often necessitate countless medical procedures, treatments, and ongoing professional care.
A collision can lead to the following injuries:
- Brain injuries
- Spinal injuries
- Skull fractures
- Broken bones
- Neck injuries
- Muscle damage
A successful verdict or settlement can safeguard your standard of living by providing compensation that mitigates the financial and physical repercussions of an accident.
You may be awarded the following damages:
- Present and future medical expenses
- Ongoing professional care fees
- Pain and suffering
- Lost income
- Loss of earning potential
Understanding Contributory Negligence
Per North Carolina’s personal injury laws, a motorcyclist may not be entitled to compensation if they are found partially liable for the accident in question. Once an accident has been reported, you can bet that any representing insurance companies are immediately out investigating the case.
To save money, the defendant’s insurance company may claim that the plaintiff’s unsafe driving practices contributed to the collision.
