If you have been injured or a loved one was killed in a motorcycle accident in Louisiana, and the other driver is at fault, their insurance company should pay for your damages. Only an attorney who has experience handling motorcycle injury litigation will be familiar with potential motorcycle defects, the biases of juries and insurance carriers and adjusters, and the resources available to best represent your interests. The New Orleans motorcycle accident lawyers of The Lambert Firm take on challenging cases to get justice for our clients.
Motorcycles don’t have the majority of available safety devices that come standard in most cars. In motorcycle accidents with other motor vehicles, another driver, not the motorcycle rider, causes two-thirds of the collisions. However, a motorcyclist is 30 times more likely to die as the result of a collision than a car driver who hits them.
Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Due to the lack of barrier in between the rider and the roadway, the personal injuries resulting from a motorcycle accident are often catastrophic and deadly. The common serious motorcycle accident injuries we see include:
- Broken bones
- Facial fractures
- Leg and arm fractures
- Pelvic fractures
- Road rash
- Spinal cord injury
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
