The most obvious claim available to those seriously injured in a motorcycle accident is that arising from the negligence of the at-fault vehicle in the collision. Most motorcycle injury accidents are the fault of negligently driven automobiles.
Louisiana law requires that a lawsuit against an at-fault driver/owner in a collision be filed within 2 years of the date of the accident. In Louisiana, such a suit would be for non-economic damages such as pain and suffering.
Motorcycles are less stable and less visible than cars, and they have high-performance capabilities. For these and other reasons, motorcycles are more likely than cars to be in crashes. And when motorcycles crash, their riders lack the protection of an enclosed vehicle, so they’re more likely to be injured or killed.
Helmets decrease the severity of the injury, the likelihood of death, and the overall cost of medical care.
They’re designed to cushion and protect riders’ heads from the impact of a crash. Just like safety belts in cars, helmets can’t provide total protection against head injury or death, but they do reduce the incidence of both. Motorcycle crash statistics show that helmets are about 29 percent effective in preventing crash fatalities.

You may have seen many ads from other so-called biker or motorcycle lawyers in motorcycle magazines. You may have even seen them at motorcycle events with their booths set up, and passing out cards and gifts. We invite you to ask these so-called biker lawyers if they actually ride, and if so, what they ride! Another question to ask is when was the last time they rode? Our law firm has attorneys that have put thousands of miles on their bikes each year. Only a real biker knows the dangers related to riding motorcycles on roads and city streets. That is precisely why our law firm is so qualified to help you get the justice and compensation you deserve.
Most motorcycle accidents occur for two reasons; cagers (people driving in cars, also known as cagers to the riders of motorcycles.) either fail to see the motorcyclist before the accident or demonstrate a reckless indifference towards the right of a motorcyclist to share the same road as their car for whatever reason.
Most motorcycle accidents occur at intersections on city streets. It’s usually the same old scenario, a car or other vehicle makes a left-hand turn in front of the motorcyclist who has the right of way, causing the motorcyclist to either: (1)”lay it down” if he or she has time; (2) Violently swerve to avoid the impending collision, usually resulting in the motorcycle striking another object; and/or (3)The motorcycle slams into the vehicle throwing the ride into the air.
There are many other motorcycle accident scenarios that will not be discussed here, but with which we (and you as well) are intimately familiar.
