Representing Motorcycle Accident Victims With Confidence

Riding a motorcycle provides a great sense of freedom — and many people purchase a motorcycle for this very reason. However, motorcyclists also understand they sacrifice a certain degree of protection when riding a motorcycle — which is what makes the negligence of other drivers on the road so dangerous to motorcyclists.

At Carlson & Jones, P.A., our attorneys are there for motorcyclists who have been injured through no fault of their own. Our personal injury lawyers have over 55 years of combined experience helping injured motorcyclists in Minnesota. If you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle accident, you can turn to us with confidence. Our dedicated representation always starts with a free consultation to demonstrate our commitment to you.

The Negligence Of Others

While there is always a chance a motorcyclist can be involved in an accident, accidents caused by the negligence of other drivers are particularly dangerous. Examples of this type of negligence include:

  • Texting or using a cell phone while driving
  • Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol
  • Distracted or fatigued driving
  • Failure to pay adequate attention to the road
  • Neglecting to see motorcyclists

Negligent driving can be a major contributor to motorcycle accidents on the road. These accidents are compounded by the significant risk of injury to motorcycle operators who are involved in a collision with a motor vehicle. At Carlson & Jones, P.A., we have an experienced legal team that will fight for justice on your behalf.

Serious Injuries Sustained In Motorcycle Accidents

Every motorcycle accident is serious. However, motorcycle operators are not afforded the same physical protection as people involved in a car accident. This is why personal injury is a significant risk for everyone involved in a motorcycle accident. There are several common injuries people can sustain in a motorcycle accident:

  • Road rash from skin that scrapes across the pavement at high speed
  • Serious bone fractures or breaks
  • Damage to eyes and ears from gravel on the road
  • Brain injuries and spinal court trauma
  • Long -term, chronic medical problems due to nerve injury

The injuries people can develop in a motorcycle accident are as varied and diverse as the drivers themselves. While some insurance plans may have beneficial coverage, motorcyclists can still wind up paying a large cost if they exceed their lifetime limit. That is why everyone should fight for the compensation they deserve.

At Carlson & Jones, P.A., we are always available for all of our clients. If you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle accident, contact us at 877-344-1555 to learn more about how our team can help you.
