Motorcycle Accident Personal Injury Lawyer and Attorney in Shreveport, LA

Motorcycles are becoming increasingly more popular. According to the United States Department of Transportation (USDT), motorcycle sales and registration increase each year. With this increase in sales comes the increase in motorcycle accidents. The number of motorcycle fatalities and accidents with injuries more than doubled from 1997 to 2007.

Motorcyclists are more vulnerable to collisions. Due to the lessened visibility of a motorcycle, compared to a truck or SUV, motorcyclists are more susceptible to suffering from the negligence of a motor vehicle driver.

Common causes of motorcycle accidents:

  • Driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol
  • Distracted driving
  • Inadequately checking blind spots before lane changes
  • Failing to come to a complete stop at red lights and intersections
  • Speeding

Common injuries include:

  • Brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Fractures
  • Cuts and scrapes

Motorcyclists are entitled to the same rights on the road as cars, trucks, and SUVs. Filing a claim can be difficult, but our legal team is here to guide you through the process. We have the experience and knowledge to evaluate accident scene photos, question witnesses, review police reports, and analyze medical reports and injury photos. Motorcycle accidents usually result in more serious injuries and even death.

Motorcycle accidents are serious and sometimes fatal. Without proper legal representation, chances are that you will not receive full compensation for damages to yourself and your vehicle after an accident. If you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle accident you may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Motorcycle damages
  • Medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Funeral expense
