Why You Need a Motorcycle Attorney 

Bristol Motorcycle Attorneys Help Victims of Bike Wrecks

Assisting injured motorcyclists and their families

Riding a motorcycle can be dangerous because bikes don’t offer the safety features found in cars. When they are operated safely while wearing proper gear, most of the danger comes from other drivers on the road. Injured bikers can suffer head injuries, broken bones and road rash. The Bristol motorcycle wreck attorneys at the firm of Massengill, Caldwell & Coughlin, P.C. work hard to help clients recover full and fair compensation for all losses. If you have been hurt while riding your bike, you may be entitled to lost wages, medical costs, emotional distress and even compensation for your pain and suffering. Our firm strongly believes bikers should be compensated when they are hurt by someone else’s negligence. We will stand up for you against insurance companies and drivers in court.

Overcoming misconceptions about motorcyclists

Insurance companies try to paint a negative picture of bikers in court. They know that proving liability can be challenging when a jury doesn’t like the injured person. For that reason, they will try to portray you as irresponsible, simply because you ride a motorcycle. Our firm understands that motorcyclists come from all walks of life. We know that most riders are responsible people, and we work to show a jury the actual cause of the motorcycle accident that led to your injury, such as a distracted driver in a car or truck. Regardless of who is at fault for your accident, our attorneys will seek to hold them accountable under the law.

How is fault distributed in Bristol bike wreck cases?

In some cases, an insurance company will attempt to claim that the accident was partially or fully your fault. In these situations, our firm will use the services of accident investigators and reconstruction specialists. These professionals will assess the scene, collect evidence and assist us in showing the court what truly happened. Depending on the facts surrounding your accident, we may argue that a driver forced you into another car’s path or that someone suddenly switched lanes. If the accident was not your fault, our team will do everything we can to prove it.

Depending on the severity of your injury and your insurance coverage, our attorneys will help you bring a claim against the right person or company. Most Bristol bikers have standard “fault” insurance. This means that the insurance company of the person who caused the accident is usually the one that pays damages. In cases of serious injury, a lawsuit may be necessary. Our experienced motorcycle collision lawyers work to get you fair compensation from the parties responsible for your accident.
