Personal Injury LAW
Motorcycle and Bicycle Accidents
Located in Memphis, TN
If you or someone you love have been injured in a motorcycle accident and are seeking legal assistance, The Chiozza Law Firm may be able to help.
No matter how careful they are, motorcyclists statistically face a high risk of involvement in an injury-causing accident, often because of other drivers.
Because motorcycle are so much smaller than cars - and certainly smaller and harder to see than trucks, buses or the SUVs that now crowd our roads and highways - other drivers sometimes fail to see motorcycles, yield the right of way to them, or give them equal rights to the road.
Because the cyclist is largely unprotected, organ damage, loss of limbs, long-term disability, paralysis, and brain injury are not uncommon when there's been a motorcycle crash. Because of the serious nature of the injuries that occur, it is wise to hire an attorney who is familiar with motorcycle accident cases.
A MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT CAN BE VERY SERIOUS
It can turn your life upside down in a split second. What if it happened to you? Would you know what to do if you were involved in a motorcycle crash? Who would you call for legal assistance and who would be on your side? Who will pay for medical bills and any prescriptions, therapy, rehab or extended treatments? Who will pay for the damage to the motorcycle or for replacing it?
What about missed work? What should you say to the insurance people if they call? What if you or your loved one is in the hospital, is seriously injured, or is unconscious? What if the motorcycle accident resulted in permanent disability, brain injury or, tragically, in a death? Where do you start and how do you handle it all?
These are the questions the we often hear from motorcycle accident victims and their families. We've been helping victims in and the Memphis area with claims for medical bills, lost wages, disability, pain and suffering, and other losses for more than a decade.
If you or someone you love has been injured in a motorcycle accident and the motorcyclist was not at fault, there may be certain rights to recover compensation for injuries, property damage, missed work, medical bills and disability.
If the tragedy of a death occurred, the family may be entitled to compensation for the loss of their loved one - though of course no amount of damages can truly replace your loss.
WE'VE GOT YOUR BEST INTEREST IN MIND
Insurance adjusters or attorneys representing the other party in the accident may try to get you to waive (give up) the rights you may have so they can save money. Please keep in mind that they do NOT have your best interests at heart. Therefore, it is very important that, in the event of a motorcycle accident, your interests are represented and your rights are protected.
Because of the serious nature of most motorcycle crashes, it is important that you choose an motorcycle accident lawyer familiar with motorcycle cases to represent you in the event of a motorcycle accident. It is very important when interviewing an attorney to represent you that you ask if they are familiar with motorcycle accident claims not just car accidents!
