Claiming Compensation Is Not Always Straightforward
Regrettably, insurance companies may be reluctant to settle or will attempt to pay as little as possible. As for-profit organizations, they serve their own best interests, which may not align with yours. The aftermath of a motorcycle accident is painful and difficult enough. You should not have to face an uphill struggle to obtain the compensation you deserve. Let us help you with that. Here’s what we will do:
We Can Determine Who Caused or Contributed to Your Motorcycle Accident
To secure compensation from the at-fault party, we will have to prove that they caused your accident through negligent or reckless behavior. Examples of negligent behavior that can cause motorcycle accidents include:
- Drunk driving
- Distracted driving
- Inattentive driving
- Poorly maintaining roads
- Improperly maintaining or repairing a motorcycle
We might find that a defective motorcycle part caused your accident. If that is the case, we can hold the manufacturer liable.
We Will Support Your Case With the Evidence We Collect
Your attorney can gather evidence to demonstrate the at-fault party’s negligence and your damages. Examples of evidence we could use in support of your case include the following:
- Medical reports
- Proof of income
- Police accident reports
- Witness statements
- CCTV footage
- Dash-cam footage
- Smartphone call or text logs
- Expert testimony from medical professionals or accident reconstruction specialists
- Pictures or video footage taken at the accident scene
- Your account of what happened
- Employee background checks in cases involving commercial vehicles
Whatever your circumstances, know that you are not alone. We will evaluate your legal options and explain complex insurance and injury laws so that you understand what is going on and know what to expect from the legal process. Additionally, we check in often to ensure you are comfortable and getting the support you need.

Obtaining a Fair Settlement Requires a Careful Analysis of Your Situation
Riding a motorcycle comes with unique risks. Due to limited protection from potential impact and less visibility to other vehicles on the road, motorcyclists are more susceptible to fatal or life-altering injuries in a collision. For example, our motorcycle accident clients often suffer serious injuries like:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Limb amputation
- Road rash
- Broken bones
Our Durham motorcycle accident attorneys have years of experience working with badly injured clients, patiently listening to their stories, and building cases piece by piece so that clients may start rebuilding their lives.
Understanding your experiences enables us to assess the full extent of your physical, emotional, and financial damages. This way, when we lead settlement negotiations with insurers, we have a good idea of what you and your family will need to protect your well-being and health in the future.
