Motorcycle accidents can result In severe Injuries. Riders face danger at every turn. From crowded highways to debris-covered roads to poorly lit city streets, riders face the possibility of a collision every time they take to the pavement. If you or a loved one was injured in a motorcycle crash, schedule a free consultation with an experienced personal injury firm.

We understand that a serious accident can impact the rider’s entire family, and we fight to recover the maximum compensation possible no matter the injuries and factors that led to the accident.

People involved in motorcycle accidents are too often faced with the notion that they themselves were being negligent just by virtue of riding a motorcycle. However, that is not the law and any thoughts or ideas that this is a factor should be denied. Further, there are different laws that apply to motorcycle claims which may have an impact in a particular situation. Therefore, it is always important to consult an attorney to discuss the particular facts and circumstances of the incident.

Largely due to the lack of safety features on the motorcycle itself, riders are typically only protected by their clothing. From heavy boots, to leather jackets, to a helmet, there is little to protect riders from a vehicle-to-vehicle collision. In addition, the rider will likely suffer injuries by falling to the pavement or striking stationary objects such as guardrails or light posts.

Riders typically suffer catastrophic injuries such as:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Compound fractures
  • Amputation
  • Road rash
  • Multiple lacerations
  • Ruptured tendons and torn ligaments
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Paralysis

Additionally, the most severe collisions might result in fatalities. If you were injured or you have lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, it is crucial that you discuss your case with a skilled vehicle accident attorney.

I had the privilege of working with Kelli Martinez as my personal injury attorney, and I can't express enough how grateful I am for her exceptional guidance and support throughout the entire process. From the moment I first contacted her to the conclusion of my case, Kelli demonstrated an unwavering commitment to ensuring my rights were protected and that I received the compensation I deserved.I highly recommend her to anyone seeking legal representation for personal injury cases.

Mr. Murphy and his team were amazing to work with. In a stressful situation they were on top of making sure I understood my options and walking me through the process when I’d stress out. He fought to make sure I was fairly treated and not just another person swept under the rug and forgot about. I highly recommend him if you ever need and hope to have a timely resolution and team that is top notch.

I am very grateful to Ed Murphy for accepting my case against work compensation, otherwise I wouldn't have had another doctor for a second examination and I would have been at home without being able to work again. I am thankful for all the work Ed and his assistant Jessica have done in my case. I am very happy with the service, every time I called I was treated very nicely by the front desk staff, Kelly. Thanks

I highly recommend contacting Ed Murphy with your worker's compensation case. From day one he took the time to explain all aspects of the case, listened to my questions and concerns, and kept me up-to-date as the case progressed. I believe he was able to achieve the best possible outcome with my case, and I couldn't be happier to have worked with him. I had never hired an attorney before, but he immediately put me at ease and had my trust. Great experience from start to finish!
