Overcoming Obstacles In Motorcycle Cases

Severe injuries. Medical billing issues. Public bias against bikers. A motorcycle accident is much different from a car accident. At Luxenberg, Garbett, Kelly & George, we handle these cases differently.

We know that a "minor bike crash" is rare. Our clients — motorcycle riders and their passengers — have suffered serious and sometimes catastrophic injuries. We have obtained settlements and verdicts for accident victims who have sustained head injuries (brain damage), spinal cord damage (paralysis), broken vertebrae, mangled or amputated limbs, skin grafts and facial disfigurement.

You May Be More Badly Injured Than You Realize

The full extent of a back, neck or brain injury may not be known for weeks or months. You need a competent medical evaluation and solid legal advice before settling an insurance claim.

Barriers To Compensation In Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists get a bad rap. People assume the rider was speeding, drunk, weaving in and out of traffic or otherwise reckless. In truth, inattentive auto drivers cause most crashes: failing to see the motorcycle when changing lanes, turning left or pulling out, or tailgating or running a stop sign or stoplight. Luxenberg, Garbett, Kelly & George uses accident reconstructionists and professional investigators to document skid marks, the wreckage and debris, and witness statements to prove negligence. We also examine the site to see if an obstructed view or road defect contributed to the accident.

Motorcycle insurance does not cover medical expenses and lost wages as in a car accident. If our client has no health insurance, or medical expenses exceed the policy limits, we work with medical providers to arrange treatment for later payment from the settlement. We pursue every source of insurance coverage, including the motorcyclist's own uninsured/underinsured driver policy.

If necessary, LGKG consults life-care planners, economists and treating physicians to ensure that motorcycle accident victims are fully compensated for future medical care, lost earning potential, permanent injury, pain and suffering, and lost quality of life. Our attorneys are prepared to take cases to trial and the insurance companies know it.
