Middletown Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

Helping the Injured Find Justice

Motorcyclists are much more likely than other drivers to be involved in an accident—and also more likely to be hurt in a crash. These statistics do not mean motorcyclists are worse drivers. In fact, drivers in passenger cars and trucks are more likely to be at fault in a car-motorcycle collision.

After an accident that is not your fault, you have the right to compensation for your injuries and other losses. Our team can protect that right, and fight to maximize the amount you recover. From investigating the accident for proof of the other party’s liability to handling insurer negotiations, we can take care of your case from start to finish.

Call Karns & Kerrison for a free consultation with one of our motorcycle accident lawyers. We’ve recovered over $250 million for accident victims in Middletown and beyond.

Damages You Can Recover with a Motorcycle Accident Claim

Even if you’re wearing protective gear, there’s only so much it can do against the significant forces involved in motorcycle accidents. High-speed collisions can result in motorcyclists getting thrown off their bikes and, at times, into other objects. Traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, loss of limb, and serious fractures are all possible in these crashes.

The worse your injuries, the more likely they are to have a lasting effect on your life. Your final settlement should not cover only your current hospital bills. It should be enough to help you get all the care you need, including in the future. We can calculate the damages you may be owed for:

  • Medical bills
  • Future medical needs
  • Accessibility devices
  • Rehabilitation/therapy
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning potential
  • Home or personal aid
  • Pain and suffering

Working with experienced medical and life care specialists, our lawyers can map out the ways your injury will likely affect your future. This information becomes evidence we use to advocate for a client when we believe they are not receiving a fair settlement offer.

Complex Liability in Motorcycle Accidents

Knowing you were not at fault for an accident is only part of what you need to start a claim. You must be able to provide evidence of another party’s liability. Even in your typical collision, this can be difficult if you don’t know how to analyze accident scenes and damage to vehicles. Our lawyers have experience in this type of investigation, which we can use to find the evidence you need for your claim.

Sometimes, answering the liability question can require a deeper look. We can help with cases that involve complications like:

  • Multi-car collisions
  • Vehicle or motorcycle defects
  • Defective road design

Depending on the circumstances of your claim, you may find yourself making a difficult argument or facing down a large corporation. You need a skilled team on your side in this scenario—a team like ours.

We Can Keep Your Claim Running Smoothly

No matter the circumstances in your case, our team at Karns & Kerrison knows what your next steps should be. With over 100 years of combined legal experience, we’ve helped with many accident claims. We can easily start the process for you. We know our way around the paperwork required by insurance companies.

Not only will working with us make your life easier, but we will also advocate for your needs. Insurance companies don’t want to pay you any more than they have to. Sometimes, they take advantage of accident victims’ conditions and unfamiliarity with the insurance claims process to offer lowball settlements. We will not let this happen to you. Our attorneys will let you know what a fair offer looks like and take charge in negotiations until we arrive at a solution that satisfies you.
