We Have the Experience Needed to Help the Victims of Severe Injuries Find Justice
Motorcyclists are overwhelmingly likely to be injured in a collision with another vehicle, and due to the lack of protection they have compared to drivers, they are also at a much higher risk of death or serious harm. Even helmets and the most advanced protective gear can only do so much in a high-speed crash.

Liability in Your Motorcycle Accident Claim
Studies show motorcycle accidents are more likely to be caused by car drivers, who may overestimate the amount of time they have before a motorcycle reaches them, miss a motorcycle that’s concealed by a blind spot, or simply not notice the smaller profile of a rider. This statistic will not stop an insurer from trying to shift liability to you, however. We have dedicated legal investigators who can uncover evidence and provide a skilled analysis of the situation.
Drivers often cause motorcycle accidents by:
- Turning across a motorcyclist’s right-of-way
- Cutting a motorcyclist off
- Opening a door into a motorcyclist’s path
In some cases, neither driver is at fault—a faulty motorcycle or car part can cause a driver to lose control. In such a case, the liability might rest with:
- The company that designed a faulty vehicle
- A manufacturer that cut corners or failed to uphold quality in their process
- A vehicle seller who did not inform you of recalls or necessary fixes
- A mechanic who missed a warning sign or made a shoddy repair
Proving an auto or motorcycle defect caused an accident and injuries often means consulting with engineers and preparing models and simulations to educated untrained judges and juries. With our resources and network of experts, Grossman Roth Yaffa Cohen can handle complex auto defect cases.
Filing a Motorcycle Accident Claim
Motorcyclists’ injuries are often severe, which makes it even more important you prevail in your injury claim. Insurers are legally bound to pay your damages if you were hit by one of their clients, but they do not have to make it easy for you. Aside from trying to shift some of the blame to you to reduce your final settlement, an insurance adjuster may:
- Waste your time on multiple phone calls
- Ask for extensive documentation to drag out your claim
- Understate the value of your damages
Reducing the amount of an accident claim makes sense for insurance companies, but for the injured, it can mean a lack of support to access necessary care and other services. Over thousands of accident claims, our attorneys have learned how to handle these obstacles to justice. We do everything in our power to keep our clients’ claims moving forward smoothly.
Calculating Damages in a Motorcycle Accident Case
There are two keys to knowing the true value of your accident claim. The first is understanding the breadth of the harm—the extent of the effects your injuries will have on your life. The second is considering its longevity.
Insurance adjusters often use an accident victim’s immediate medical needs as a base amount for their settlement. This practice produces an unfairly low number, because doctor’s bills are a relatively small part of the losses linked to a catastrophic injury. Our attorneys can help you identify damages like:
- Medical bills
- Future medical needs
- Physical/vocational rehabilitation
- Accommodations/accessibility devices
- Household or personal aid
- Lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Future pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
The more serious your injury, the longer it will continue to impact your life. Before accepting an insurer’s word for how much your claim is worth, reach out to a reputable accident attorney. Our team consults with medical and life care professionals so we can understand and itemize the full worth of our clients’ claims.
