Our firm does not accept the premise that a bias against bikers exists in the legal system of Louisiana or that a biker should have to settle for less compensation than he or she deserves. Sometimes insurance companies do not have the best interests of accident victims in mind and will often work hard to limit the compensation they pay out.
Advocates for Motorcycle Accident Victims
Before you sign any document, keep your legal rights in mind. Our firm represents individuals who have suffered neck and back injuries, spinal cord injuries and brain injuries after motorcycle accidents in Louisiana and Baton Rouge.
Motorcycles allow you to enjoy the freedom of the road. However, along with the excitement and pleasures of riding come substantial risks. Bikes do not have seatbelts to hold you in place or airbags to cushion any impact. These factors contribute to the severity of motorcycle crash injuries.
Common Motorcycle Injuries
Our lawyers negotiate with the insurance company to recover the maximum possible compensation for medical costs, lost wages, pain, suffering and other damages for such serious injuries as:
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord damage
- Multiple fractures
- Severe road rash
- Lacerations and abrasions
- Soft tissue injuries
Most motorcycle accidents are preventable, but for the negligence of another driver. Our Baton Rouge motorcycle accident lawyers investigate whether one of the following negligent actions caused your crash:
Negligence in a Motorcycle Accident
- Poor road maintenance resulting in potholes and cracked pavement
- Construction crew leaving road debris on the highway
- Motorist failing to yield
- Speeding and reckless driving
