Motorcycle Injury Lawyers

Motorcycle Injury Law

There is a cruel irony in motorcycle accident injury cases: They are more challenging, for various reasons, but the injuries tend to be more severe and victims require higher costs for a longer recovery.

The injuries are more severe for obvious reasons: no air bags, no protection, sometimes not even a helmet. Bikers come in contact with pavement and steel, and their own motorcycle. The motorcycle accident injuries include:

  • Head and brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Amputation
  • Death

The Challenges

Insurance policies have exclusions and loopholes to try to get out of paying what they should. And juries and the public have less sympathy for injured bikers than for other victims of injury. Many see cyclists as reckless thrill-seekers who “probably” bear much of the fault for their accident.

The Truth

The truth is that most accidents where motorcyclists are injured are the fault of automobile drivers. A common and terrible accident involves an auto driver failing to see an oncoming cyclist and turning left into the bike. Two vehicles — even traveling at low speed — going in opposite directions amplify the impact.

If you have lost a loved one to wrongful death in a motorcycle accident, you may have a case to recover from a negligent driver. If there was a defect in the motorcycle, there may be a case against the manufacturer or dealer.

Resolving Custody Disputes

Whether your custody issue is related to a divorce or another situation, we will help you find the best possible solution for your family. We have helped clients obtain and modify orders relating to legal and physical custody, joint custody and move-away custody arrangements, as well as custody modifications.

If mediation is not right for you, we have the familiarity with local courts and extensive experience to aggressively represent you in settlement negotiations with the attorney representing your spouse or partner. If settlement negotiations are unsuccessful, we will aggressively and competently represent you at trial.

Establishing or Modifying Child and/or Spousal Support

When there are disputes over child support or spousal support, we will gather evidence of each party’s income or their ability to earn income. Our priority is making sure a fair amount of support is being paid — whether you are the payor or the payee.

We can help with establishment of initial support orders and also represent you in modification proceedings. Child support orders often need to be changed due to a new custodial arrangement or change in income of one or both parties. Spousal support orders also may require modification based on changes in income, marital status, cohabitation or simply the passage of time. We also provide services in child support cases initiated by the Department of Child Support Services against non-custodial parents for establishment or modification of child support.

What if One Parent Wants to Relocate With the Children?

If you or your spouse plans to move out of the state with the children, there are many things to consider. If you have existing custody orders, they generally will need to be modified to allow the move. If there are no existing custody orders, you may need to petition the court for permission to move the children away from the other parent. Alternatively, if you are the non-moving parent, you may wish to ask the court to prohibit the move.

Move away cases can be complicated, requiring highly qualified legal counsel. We are knowledgeable about the law and an help guide you through the process.
