We will get to the bottom of your motorcycle accident in Indianapolis
The stereotype is that motorcyclists are irresponsible thrill-seekers. The reality is that most bikers are safe, responsible operators, and when a crash happens, it’s usually the driver of the larger vehicle at fault. We represent bikers injured in a wide range of accidents, including:
- Rear-end crashes: motorists who follow too closely often rear-end bikers by failing to take into account the motorcycle’s shorter stopping distance.
- Left turns at intersections: too many drivers fail to yield the right of way to an oncoming motorcycle and end up turning in front of or into the bike.
- Blind spot accidents: motorists who fail to check their blind spots may crash into a motorcycle when turning or changing lanes.
- Forced off road: not every motorcycle accident involves contact. A car that changes lanes or turns in front of a motorcycle may force the biker to swerve off the road.
The common factor in all these types of accidents is failure to share the road appropriately. Motorists who drive aggressively around bikers, or who choose to get behind the wheel while drunk or fatigued, put others at risk, and too often, the driver walks away unharmed while the biker is seriously hurt. We hold them accountable.
We fight for full value for injured motorcyclists in Indianapolis
Even with a helmet and other protective gear, a motorcycle crash can cause serious injuries for the biker. Traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and loss of limbs are common. Biker’s arm and road rash can require expensive medical treatment and permanently affect your quality of life. Between medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses, the full cost of your accident can easily be in the hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars.
Of course, that means the insurance companies will fight hard to pay as little as possible. Their job is to protect their bottom line, and they will use pressure tactics, manipulation, and every trick they know to downplay or deny your claim. We know how to push back. We will launch a full investigation to gather solid evidence proving that the driver who hit you was at fault. We know how to tell a compelling story to a Marion County jury and trust them to do the right thing.
When the insurance company sees we’re prepared to hold them accountable, they usually offer a fair settlement. If they don’t, we are always ready to fight for you in the civil justice system. Throughout the process, we will keep you informed and handle the day-to-day negotiations with the insurance company while you keep your focus on healing. We are in this together, start to finish, and we will leverage our experience and knowledge of the legal system to fight for a better outcome.

Remember, you need to take prompt action to protect your rights after a motorcycle crash. Evidence disappears. Witnesses forget what they saw. Legal deadlines expire. The insurance company will act fast to protect their interests, and so should you. The sooner we can start our investigation, the better.
