Motorcycle Accident Injury
Attorney in Wilmington, North Carolina
As a motorcycle accident attorney, I represent people injured in accidents caused by negligent drivers, in negotiations with insurance companies, and, if necessary, in motorcycle accident lawsuits.
I understand that when any injury occurs from a motorcycle accident, it can have vast effects on an individual’s emotional and physical welfare. Loss of wages and mounting medical bills can only make the situation worse and potentially affect the livelihood and stability of the victim’s family.
Given the severity of injuries suffered as the result of a motorcycle accident, it is important to understand your rights to receive compensation for your medical expenses, wage loss, pain and suffering, and other damages.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Cars making left-hand turns
Poor weather conditions
Disobeying traffic laws
Driving under the influence
Poor bike maintenance
The lack of protective clothing and/or high-visibility clothing
Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Motorcycle accidents are even more likely to cause injury than auto accidents due to how little protection the rider has. Injuries can range from minor scratches to as severe as death. Here’s a list of some of the most common motorcycle accident injuries:
Broken bones or fractures

Your Rights After a Motorcycle Accident
As a motorcycle rider, you have just as much right to use the road as any other motorist. When someone else harms you through their careless behavior on the road, you have the right to hold that driver accountable.
Depending on your job, these injuries might keep you out of work. For some bikers, this disability is temporary, but that doesn’t make it less serious. Even if you’re only out of work for a short time, you depend on that money.
And then there are the unfortunate motorcycle accident victims whose debilitating injuries never go away. They might improve somewhat with treatment and time, but never enough that you can return to the job or the life that you enjoyed before the crash.
To get the full amount of money you deserve for your motorcycle accident claim, you’ll need an attorney with experience handling motorcycle accident cases.
