In proving liability, we use our experience and advanced understanding of insurance settlement tactics to overcome defense claims that the biker was wholly or principally responsible for the accident. While evidence of a motorcyclist’s fault can reduce the value of the injured biker’s claim, it will not defeat the claim unless the biker was more at fault than the other driver.
Because motorcyclists struck by heavier vehicles tend to take the worst of the impact, the injuries suffered by bikers tend to be very serious. Our attorneys know how to develop and present detailed evidence on the damages issues presented by motorcycle accident cases, including evidence of future treatment and rehabilitation needs related to head injuries, multiple fractures, extensive soft tissue trauma or other permanent or disabling conditions.
Careful Attention to Damages Issues in Serious Injury Cases
The injuries in motorcycle crashes are also often aggravated by the other driver’s failure to see the bike at all. In the absence of the last-second accident avoidance efforts that characterize many car accidents, the biker will take the full impact of the collision without any attempt by the other driver to reduce speed or avoid direct impact. Provost Umphrey’s experience with presenting the ways causal factors relate to specific injuries can make a significant difference to the outcome of the case.
Our law firm includes numerous lawyers who are also motorcyclists, and we take an active interest in the industry and motorcycle safety. You can count on our Beaumont motorcycle accident attorneys to defend your rights on the road and your future after a serious crash. We integrate a motorcyclist’s perspective and solid knowledge of motorcycle product design with the advanced litigation and trial skills that we bring to each case.
