Motorcycle Accident

Free Case Review

Free and confidential consultation with an experienced attorney at the Whitfield Coleman Bullock.

Whitfield Coleman Bullock’s motorcycle accident attorneys are relentless advocates for people who have been injured because of others’ negligence. The injuries that occur in motorcycle crashes are often even more severe than the ones that occur in car crashes, which makes strong, experienced representation that much more important.

Our lawyers have a strong track record of achieving sizable recoveries for our clients, allowing them to put the pieces back together after a crash. We have extensive experience going up against insurance companies, and we refuse to settle for less than full, fair compensation.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident, contact us to see if you qualify for legal action. Consultations are free, and it costs nothing up front to hire us.

Motorcycle Crash Injuries

The exhilarating freedom afforded by riding a motorcycle has a downside, which is that there is less protection in the event of a crash. As a result, the injuries suffered can be quite severe:

  • Head and neck injuries (including concussion, brain damage)
  • Spinal cord injuries
  •  Broken bones
  •  Loss of limbs
  • Disfigurement
  • Paralysis
  • Death

The toll from these injuries – financial, physical, and emotional – can be catastrophic. Unfortunately, insurance companies are not always willing to cover these costs, even when they are legally required to do so.

Motorcycle Crash Compensation

At Whitfield Coleman Bullock, our motorcycle accident attorneys seek to recover all past and future expenses sustained by our clients. These may include the following damages:

  • Past and future medical costs
  • Past and future motorcycle repair costs
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of earning capacity (if they can no longer do the same job)
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of life’s enjoyment
  • Funeral expenses (in the event of a loved one’s death)

These damages can be extensive, even lifelong. This is why it’s vital that you don’t accept an insurance company’s settlement offer before speaking with a licensed attorney. They could be offering you a small fraction of the amount you are actually owed, and if you don’t talk to an attorney, you may not realize that it’s far less than you deserve.

What an Attorney Can Do for You

After a motorcycle accident, many insurance companies will delay, deny, or undervalue even legitimate claims. If this happens to you, a lawyer can help fight for full compensation, building a persuasive case, negotiating with the other side, and presenting the case at trial if need be. Here is a brief rundown of what an attorney can do for you:

  • Calculating the total, lifelong cost of your injuries
  • Gathering and reading police and medical records
  • Consulting with medical experts
  • Collecting witness statements
  • Reconstructing the crash scene
  • Filing all requisite paperwork, being mindful of deadlines
  • Negotiating with the insurance company’s lawyers
  • Presenting your case at trial (if necessary)

 By taking on these many tasks, and countless others, an attorney can make your life much easier, so you can focus on recovering from your injuries and spending time with loved ones.

How Motorcycle Lawsuits Work

Many people assume that motorcycle or auto accident lawsuits are filed against the driver who caused the crash, but in reality, the defendant is much more likely to be the driver’s insurance company. Or, in the event that a car or bike malfunctioned, causing the crash, the defendant could be the manufacturer who made the faulty part(s).

We rarely file these complaints against individuals – it’s much more common that we are taking on a large company and holding them accountable for damages.

Eligibility and Costs

Every accident is different, and there are many factors that determine (a) who is at fault; (b) how much money someone is owed for their injuries. The best way to find out if you are entitled to compensation is to contact an attorney who specializes in filing these types of cases.

Hiring a lawyer might sound expensive, but at Whitfield Coleman Bullock, we only receive a fee if we successfully resolve a client’s case through a favorable settlement or jury award. Our payment comes out of the client’s recovery, not their pocket, which means anyone can afford to hire us.
