Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Recovering Full and Fair Compensation For Injured Motorcyclists
People ride motorcycles for various reasons including transportation, leisure, and the freedom of the open road. Unfortunately, as the nation’s highways become more congested, accidents involving motorcycles are on the rise. Because bikers lack some of the basic protections as those traveling in cars, they typically sustain severe injuries that require extensive medical treatment to recover fully.
If you are an injured motorcycle rider, you must seek qualified legal representation immediately. An insurance company will often try to blame the injured motorcyclist for causing the crash to lessen their degree of liability.
Go Big Injury Law has extensive experience in assisting motorcycle accident victims recover compensation for their injuries and other damages. If you have lost a loved one in a wrongful death motorcycle accident, we may also be able to assist you with filing a claim to recover damages.

Why Do Most Motorcycle Accidents Occur?
Motorcycle accidents can occur due to several different factors. The most common reason is distracted driving by other motorists. Other drivers may not see a motorcyclist until it is too late, leading to potentially deadly rear-end collisions. Commercial truck drivers can fail to see motorcyclists riding in the vehicle’s blind spots while switching lanes, leading to severe injuries or even death.
Other potential causes of motorcycle accidents include:
- Speeding or reckless driving
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- A driver opening a car door in the path of an oncoming motorcycle
- Manufacturer defects
- Adverse weather conditions
- Motorists failing to yield to motorcyclists when making a left-hand turn in intersections
If you have been involved in an accident potentially caused by a defective motorcycle, you need legal guidance, as these cases can be overly complex and require the skills of a qualified motorcycle accident lawyer who can fight to obtain a settlement that is in your best interests.
If you are a motorcycle rider who has been injured by a motor vehicle or by design defects, you need to seek immediate medical attention, then reach out to Go Big Law to see how we can help your case.
Should I Speak With the Other Driver’s Insurance Company?
In many instances, the other party’s insurance company may attempt to contact you soon after you file a motorcycle accident claim. An insurance adjuster may offer you a quick settlement that seems tempting at first glance. However, these settlements rarely consider the extent of your motorcycle accident injuries and the compensation you need to recover fully.
The insurance adjuster handling your claim may ask you to consent to give a recorded statement detailing the facts of the accident. Once you give the statement, the insurance provider has the right to use it against you to reduce the amount of money they may have to pay in a settlement.
It is imperative that you consult an experienced attorney before you speak with the other party’s insurance company. Our motorcycle accident lawyers are familiar with the deceitful tactics that insurers often use to try and avoid large payouts.
Go Big Injury Law can advise you of your legal rights and act as your legal advocate when dealing with insurers. If the insurance company contacts you, do not speak to them until you have scheduled a free consultation with one of our experienced attorneys.
Can I Recover Compensation to Pay For My Medical Expenses?
If you have been injured in a motorcycle wreck, you may be entitled to recover compensation meant to reimburse you for economic and non-economic damages. Likewise, if you had a motorcycle passenger that was injured, they may also be able to collect damages for their injuries.
Economic damages are awarded to reimburse injury victims for out-of-pocket expenses incurred due to the accident. Some of the most commonly awarded damages include:
- Past and future medical bills
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity
- Property damage
A spinal cord or traumatic brain injury qualifies as catastrophic and may require physical therapy or rehabilitation services. If you have been diagnosed with a catastrophic injury, you most likely will need long-term care that can quickly create financial hardship for you and your family.
Non-economic damages are granted to compensate accident victims for the intangible losses they have suffered based on the facts surrounding the case. Some examples include:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional pain
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of companionship
- Permanent disfigurement and scarring
