When an automobile and motorcycle collide, many people are quick to point the finger. The car driver, the insurance company and even the police report often blame the motorcyclist. In many cases, the automobile driver's own carelessness or disregard for traffic laws was actually the root cause of the collision.
The Palumbo Law Group stands up for the rights of motorcycle riders and passengers injured in traffic accidents. We conduct a thorough investigation and pursue every source of insurance coverage to help our clients get compensation for their serious or permanent injuries.
WHAT CAUSED THE MOTORCYCLE CRASH?
Upon closer review, witnesses or other evidence may indicate that the "biker" was driving in a safe and sane manner, but the other driver was not. We work to show the true negligence of the other party, such as:
- Failure to yield the right of way
- Running a stop sign or red light
- Unsafe lane changes
- Pulling out into traffic
- Tailgating or aggressive driving
- Texting while driving or other distracted driving
- Driving under the influence
Proving negligence is only half the battle. Victims of motorcycle accidents commonly suffer broken bones, "road rash" and other injuries that take months to heal, or catastrophic injuries such as spinal cord trauma, brain injury or amputation.
Experienced trial attorney Daniel Palumbo personally handles your case. He works with medical experts, economists and other professionals to detail the extent of injury, future medical needs, the impact on future earnings and the case for pain and suffering. The insurance companies respect his strong record of verdicts and settlements, which often means they are more willing to negotiate and less inclined to go to trial.
