When vehicles are required to share the road, accidents are inevitable. Unfortunately, when a motorcycle is involved in an accident, it almost always causes a catastrophic injury. Unfortunately, a motorcyclist is most likely the one that will lose when their motorcycle collides with any other vehicle. A motorcycle accident is always going to have more serious consequences because the driver is not protected as people in passenger vehicles are protected.
At Shelnutt & Varner, our accident attorneys have seen endless amounts of motorcycle accidents and have the experience to help you get compensation if your injuries were another’s fault.

Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Because of how a motorcycle is designed, even at slow speeds, you may suffer severe injuries from your accident. You may have been following all the rules of the road, but still be thrown off your bike, break bones, and face severe internal injuries. Even if you were obeying all road signs, and speed limits, and wearing the proper protective gear, a motorcycle accident can cause you to suffer from the following:
If you’re suffering from severe injuries, you and your family will not only be trying to pay for your medical bills but will also be struggling as you may not be able to work anymore. Our attorneys will fight to get you compensation for all of these struggles and to help get you back on your feet financially, emotionally, and physically.
Motorcycle Accident Causing Wrongful Death
While it may be hard to think about, if you’ve lost a loved one due to a motorcycle accident, there may be ways to restore a small sense of normalcy to your family by lessening the financial blow that you are struggling with. If your loved one’s death was due to the negligence of another driver, there may be legal recourse that you can take for financial damages. Negligence in an accident case can be established if the other driver wasn’t obeying traffic signals or the speed limit, was driving recklessly, under the influence, or distracted. If our attorneys can establish negligence, we can file a lawsuit to help you and your family afford medical bills, funeral costs, and cover the loss of income that your loved one would have been contributing to the family.
