Your Recovery and Compensation is Our #1 Priority
If you were injured in a motorcycle accident caused by the negligence, carelessness, or recklessness of another, you need a Delano personal injury lawyer who will fight for you. Eric Paris and his legal team will aggressively pursue financial compensation for the full extent of your losses. We will seek damages for your pain and suffering, current and future medical expenses, lost wages and lost future earning capacity, and more.
It is important to select an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer to represent you for two reasons:
1) Motorcycle accidents often result in catastrophic injuries, including brain injury, amputation, burns, spinal cord injury and multiple fractures. Our law firm understands how to handle cases involving life-altering injuries. We will work to maximize the amount of financial compensation you receive and consider the long-term implications of a serious injury.
2) Judges and juries can be biased against motorcyclists. Attorney Eric Paris and his legal team will present facts to address this bias. We are prepared to show that today, most motorcyclists are safe, responsible drivers – not risk takers. In fact, the fastest growing demographic groups among motorcycle owners are women, baby boomers and commuters.
Drivers of passenger vehicles often say they didn’t see the motorcycle. Often, the truth is that they were just not looking or were distracted by something in the car. It’s all motorists responsibility to be aware of other vehicles on the road, including motorcyclists. If they fail to do so and the rider gets hurt, our motorcycle injury attorneys will hold them liable.
For our clients a motorcycle isn’t a toy – it’s their lives
The Paris Firm understands motorcycle riders love their bikes and the thrill of the open road. We understand the severity of injuries that riders can suffer when they get into a bad wreck, because we’ve seen it before. Motorcycle accidents can cause painful and debilitating injuries, from road rash to fractures, and even to injuries requiring amputation of limbs.
Common Causes of Motorcycle Wrecks
There are many potential causes of motorcycle accidents, but almost all of them are the result of a driver error on the part of either the motorcyclist or the other driver (which is a passenger car almost 90% of the time). These include:
- Failure to notice motorcyclists
- Distracted driving (often mobile phones and in-dash “infotainment” systems)
- Failure to yield right of way
- Illegal maneuver
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
Although either driver may be at fault in a motorcycle accident, it’s often more difficult for motorcyclists to demonstrate that they’re not the one’s at fault.
Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents often result in serious injuries. Common motorcycle accident injuries include:
- Traumatic Brain injury (TBI)
- Internal organ damage
- Serious abrasions (road rash)
- Spine injury
- Amputation injury
Because of the severity of these injuries, motorcycle accident victims will often receive less compensation than they need to pay for medical bills and make up for lost wages.
