If a negligent driver or another entity is at fault for a collision resulting in injuries to you or a loved one, there may be grounds for a personal injury or wrongful death claim. Oftentimes, drivers will try to blame a motorcycle rider for a collision and insurance companies will fight claims made by them. That’s why it’s important to have an experienced attorney who will fight for you and ensure your legal rights are protected.
