Motorcycle riders are some of the most vulnerable people on the road. Without seat belts, air bags and steel frames to protect them, the injuries they suffer in a crash are often very severe. It takes a very experienced personal injury lawyer to help motorcyclists recover the compensation they need after being hurt by negligent drivers.
At Froerer & Miles, we provide powerful representation for injured bikers in Weber County, Davis County, Morgan County and across northern Utah. We stand up for the rights of motorcyclists against careless car and truck drivers, whose most frequent refrain is simple “I didn’t see him.” That is not an excuse, and since 1985 our personal injury lawyers have refused to accept it. Working to Overcome Misconceptions
No matter the cause of your motorcycle accident, we encourage you to reach out to Froerer and Miles to learn about your legal options.
One of the biggest challenges facing any motorcycle rider who gets hurt is the widely held perception that when motorcyclists get hurt, they must somehow be responsible. It is critical to overcome this perception, because an injured person in Utah cannot recover any compensation if found more than 30 percent at fault. This is a fact of which insurance companies are well aware, and they try to use it to reduce the amount of benefits they pay out.
One of our strengths as motorcycle accident lawyers is our ability to combat this feeling. We work with experts, including accident reconstructionists, to show juries how the event really unfolded and get you the compensation you need and deserve.
Putting Together the Facts
The team here at Froerer & Miles works to build an accurate picture of what happened at the accident scene. Some of the common scenarios for motorcycle crashes include:
- Collisions at intersections
- Car drivers making turns without looking
- Cars making lane changes suddenly
- Accidents caused by defective motorcycle parts, like tires, chains and sprockets
No matter the cause of your accident, we encourage you to reach out to us to learn about your legal options. We will give you the kind of caring, honest advice you deserve.
