Recovering from a motorcycle accident is difficult enough without dealing with the insurance company of the at-fault driver. Trust us to protect your interests during this difficult time.
The motorcycle accident attorneys at Robichaud, Schroepfer & Correia, P.A. have more than 40 years of combined experience holding at-fault drivers and their insurance companies accountable when they injure or kill innocent bikers.
Most motorcycle accidents are caused by careless drivers who fail to look for motorcycles on the road. Some of the most common types of accidents occur when a car or truck:
- Makes a left-hand turn in front of a motorcycle
- Pulls out in front of a motorcycle from a side street
- Swerves into a lane occupied by a motorcycle
- Strikes a motorcycle that is stopped at a stoplight
- Fails to yield to a motorcycle at an intersection
Even if the other driver admits fault after the accident, the other side may attempt to shift blame to you — for example, by claiming you were speeding or driving recklessly. In Minnesota, your recovery from a personal injury lawsuit is reduced by any percentage of fault that is assigned to you. If you are 51 percent or more at fault, you are not entitled to recover compensation from the other driver. For this reason, it’s important to contact an attorney as soon as possible after an accident so that evidence of liability can be collected and preserved. Our attorneys will carefully investigate every aspect of your accident to ensure that you receive maximum compensation for lost wages, medical bills, property damage, and pain and suffering.
Even If you were a passenger on a motorcycle and injured in a crash, you are entitled to recover monetary compensation for your injuries regardless of who was at fault. Contact our lawyers to learn more about your rights and the compensation available to you.
