Motorcycle Accident Attorneys Who Know What it Means to be a Rider.
Motorcycle accidents have many unique issues that are not present in car accidents. Consequently, if you are involved in a motorcycle crash, it is incredibly important to consult a motorcycle injury attorney immediately who can assist you with your claim. Some of the risks unique to motorcycle crashes and motorcycle crash lawsuits are:
Prove what we all know: Cars Ignore Motorcycles.
Motorcycles are smaller than cars and are easily hidden from cars. Consequently, many automobile drivers don’t see a motorcycle until it is too late to avoid a crash. But how do you prove that in court? The other side will argue that the rider was simply going too fast to be seen. Our experts can analyze the hard scientific data and help prove your case.
Road Conditions Cause Motorcycle Crashes.
Road hazards, such as debris, wet pavement or small objects, which are minor issues for cars can cause motorcycles to become unstable and crash. It is the responsibility of the city, county, and state to keep roads safe for riders. You shouldn't be blamed for a crash when there was a massive pothole left unfixed, or they forgot to put out construction cones.
Motorcycle Crashes Cause More Severe Injuries.
A motorcycle rider does not have a protective cage around him or her. Riders who are involved in a motorcycle accident are more likely to sustain serious injuries because they have no protection from the elements. Our medical experts can prove your injuries are real, and help a jury see that you need real financial help to overcome the damages caused you.
They will try to make it seem like the motorcycle crash is your fault.
We've seen it a million times. The insurance company refuses to pay what it promised to pay and makes an excuse like "You knew riding was risky."
Do. Not. Let. Them. Get. Away. With. It.
You have EVERY legal right to safety on the roadway, whether you choose to drive a car or ride a motorcycle. Do NOT let them blame you for their mistakes. They're going to come at you and claim a more skilled rider could have avoided the crash, or that you were being unsafe, or that motorcycles are inherently more risky. We can fight them no matter what argument they make.
Motorcycle Accident Laws
The laws governing motorcycle accidents are the same as those for automobiles. Specifically, the injured motorcyclist must show that the other party was negligent and the negligence lead to the injuries. In most cases, the other vehicle is an automobile. In many cases the automobile driver was negligent because he or she was speeding through an intersection or did not properly check his blind spot before making a turn. If both the motorcyclist and automobile were at fault, the court will examine the degree to which each person’s actions lead to the accident. The person with the greater degree of fault will be liable but the award may be reduced by the amount of negligence of the other person. Of course, if the motorcyclist does not suffer any injuries, even if the other party was negligent, there can be no recovery.
Our job is to make sure that the truth is presented fairly, and that the other side doesn't convince a judge or jury that somehow you were at fault. We want the truth to come out and we will answer every legal challenge they make.

Personal Injury Lawyer Testimonials
Clients and Legal Professionals Speak Out
My family is incredibly grateful to this firm. The car accident lawyer that we worked with in Las Vegas was about as high quality as I could have hoped for. It was obvious that we were going to win from our first confrontation with the man who ran into me. They really spooked him and his lawyer.
Mr. Richards is the lawyers lawyer. I have seen him represent clients in even relatively minor accidents with the competent aggression and attention to detail most attorneys reserve for more high profile cases.
My injury might have bankrupted me if I wasn’t able to collect my lost wages in a civil suit. Clear Counsel represented me for this case, and were the primary reason that I won it. After seeing what they were like in the courtroom, the other side was begging us to accept a generous settlement.
Jared was SO great to work with! He was very personable, timely, and completely trust worthy. He did everything in his power to assure us the best possible outcome. He's professional, understanding, and I would recommend him to anyone.
