Alexandria Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

Local Riders Know They Can Depend on Us

Motorcyclists are often given the short end of the deal when it comes to seeking compensation after a bad accident. Even if the wreck was clearly not their fault, insurance companies will try to blame them in any way they can manage. Desperate for any amount of compensation to help them recover, many motorcyclists accept lowball settlements that don’t do enough.

At Morris & Dewett Injury Lawyers, we know it is wrong to disrespect the rights of injured motorcyclists to save a buck. We are proud to stand up for local riders in Alexandria, Louisiana, and to fight major insurance companies in their names. There is no such thing as a legal fight that scares us, even if it means going to court against aggressive defense teams.

Severe Injuries Suffered by Motorcyclists

The average car accident does not cause severe injuries to motorists because most crashes happen at relatively low speeds and modern cars are built with protective equipment like airbags. On the other hand, the average motorcycle accident can cause catastrophic injuries to a motorcyclist because they have basically no protection. Even at relatively low speeds, like 25 mph in a residential area, a collision between a motorcyclist and a larger vehicle can result in life-changing or life-threatening injuries.

It is not uncommon for motorcyclists to suffer these injuries in bad crashes:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Road rash
  • Permanent disfigurement
  • Broken bones
  • Internal organ damage

Our Alexandria motorcycle accident attorneys are here to make sure you get a fair chance at getting as much compensation as you need after a wreck that is not your fault. The amount of money that we pursue in your name will be greatly influenced by the extent of your injuries. The worse you have been injured, the greater the compensation owed to you, it is safe to assume.

If you lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, then we can help you as well. In that tragic situation, you would have the right to pursue a wrongful death claim or survival action against the party or parties that caused the wreck.

What Causes Motorcycle Accidents?

Some motorcycle accidents are caused by reckless riders, of course. But many of the worst wrecks are caused by third parties, so it is wrong for insurance companies to label all motorcyclists as reckless individuals who “ride for the thrill” of it.

Motorcycle accidents can be caused by:

  • Drivers who turn left in front of approaching motorcycles
  • Drivers who don’t check their mirrors or blind spots when merging
  • Poor road conditions like potholes or debris in the road
  • Motorcycle part defects like brake failures or burst tires

Through a thorough investigation of your crash, we can help figure out what caused your motorcycle accident. When the evidence is unclear or the opposition is putting up a stubborn fight, we can work with accident reconstruction experts. They might be able to give expert testimonies that convince the insurance company to offer a better settlement, or that show a court you deserve a larger award.
