Help For Injured Motorcycle Riders

Motorcyclists are among the most vulnerable travelers on the highway. Often they are not even seen by the drivers that hit them or force them off the road. Motorcycles are unstable, and it is actually more difficult for a biker to navigate debris or unsafe roads than for the driver of an automobile. When a motorcycle accident does occur, the rider and, if there is one, passenger, often suffer serious injuries, including brain, neck, and spinal cord damage, and broken shoulders and knees.

There is a general prejudice against motorcyclists, and that attitude extends to the way they are treated by insurance companies and sometimes juries and the courts. Personal injury attorney Jim Arruebarrena has the experience, the access to expert witnesses, and the determination needed to build a strong case on behalf of a client injured in a motorcycle accident.

If You Have Been Injured in a Motorcycle Accident in Louisiana - Contact a Lawyer as Soon as Possible

Whether you are a longtime New Orleans resident hurt on your own bike, or you are a tourist who was injured while seeing the sights on a rented motorcycle, it is important to consult with a lawyer as soon as possible. In many cases, the insurance companies will have investigators and adjusters on the scene shortly after a motorcycle accident. It is important that you contact an attorney to represent your interests as soon as possible, ideally within hours, after your accident so evidence can be preserved and witnesses can be interviewed while their memories are fresh. Do not make any statement to an insurance company representative until you have spoken with your own attorney.

Pinpointing Liability for Motorcycle Accident Injury Claims

Our attorneys and investigators work to identify all parties responsible for motorcycle accident injuries, or, in the case of a fatal accident, wrongful death. Was a defective after-market part responsible for the bike's failure? Does the motorcyclist have uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage on another policy? Did the bike slide on gravel spilled by a construction truck?

Our New Orleans motorcycle accident law firm handles motorcycle accident injury claims on behalf of clients throughout Louisiana's Gulf Coast communities, handling all aspects of accident investigation and claims negotiation. Our legal team works hard to develop a compelling presentation for insurance negotiators and a jury, demonstrating the cause of the accident and the full extent of our client's injuries.

Our advice to anyone seriously injured in an accident: immediately seek medical attention for your injuries. Then, before making any statement to, or signing papers for, the insurance company, have your claim evaluated by an experienced personal injury lawyer.
