Fighting For The Rights Of Injured Motorcyclists

In addition to being a recreational pastime for many individuals, riding a motorcycle has now become a popular vehicle that people use in their daily travel. Unfortunately, other motorists are still not taking the time to recognize when a motorcycle is near them on the road. This lack of concern can lead to a very serious accident where the motorcyclist is severely injured.

With 25 years of legal experience, attorney Louis J. Bertsche leads our firm in providing injured clients with tailored and aggressive representation. He is a knowledgeable advocate who takes the time to get to know our clients, their concerns and situations, in order to pursue a resolution to the case that is in their best interests. We are committed to standing up for motorcyclists who have been injured by negligent drivers and can handle all aspects of your motorcycle crash case.

Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Because a motorcycle affords less protection in an accident than a car or truck does, a motorcyclist is at risk for sustaining very serious injuries in an accident. The types of injuries often suffered in a motorcycle accident often include:

  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Brain injuries
  • Loss of limb
  • Amputation
  • Abrasions and lacerations (road rash)
  • Scarring
  • Disfigurement

We also handle wrongful death claims that result from a fatal accident.

Dealing With Insurance Companies

Unfortunately, many insurance companies look down upon motorcyclists. They take the position that riding a motorcycle is an “assumption of risk,” meaning that if cyclists are injured in accidents, it was their own fault for taking the risk. This is absolutely unacceptable. The negligent party should always be held responsible, regardless of the type of vehicle that was being driven by either party.
