A motorcycle accident almost always results in injuries, ranging from serious to crippling to life threatening. Often times, they’re the fault of someone other than the cyclist. Many drivers of cars, vans, trucks and commercial vehicles simply don’t consider the presence of a motorcycle when on the road. They often misjudge the speed, fail to recognize turn signals or compensate for weather conditions. These and other common mistakes all contribute to motorcycle accidents.
Whatever the reason or combination of reasons, if you or someone you love has been injured in a motorcycle accident due to the negligence of others, then it’s important to make sure you find an attorney who understands the dynamics of motorcycle accident cases. Juries tend to assume motorcycle accidents are the fault of the cyclist because of movies they’ve seen, or the occasional ‘hot rod’ motorcyclists they’ve seen on the road. These all contribute to motorcyclists in general getting a bad rap. At Brian Caubarreaux & Associates, we know better.
We understand going in that a prejudice against motorcyclists may exist. We also know that lawyers for the insurance company – representing the other side – will try and exploit this prejudice. Sometimes they make the mistake of thinking we aren’t ready for them. We are. When it comes to representing injured motorcyclists, we work hard to do it right – and we have the track record to prove it.
