"Of all motor vehicle accidents, cycle crashes are the most likely to end in a fatality."
- Todd Barsumian
Motorcyclists have an increased risk of injury due to the lack of many safety features that cars, vans, and trucks provide their drivers and passengers. According to the National Highway Traffic SafetyAdministration, motorcycle deaths occurred 28 times more often than fatalities in other vehicle collisions. Almost half of all fatalities involved a motorcycle collision with another motor vehicle. In one recent year, over 5,000 motorcyclists were killed, and more than 88,000 motorcyclists were injured. Motorcycle-related deaths accounted for 14% of all traffic-related fatalities.
Motorcycle Injury Attorneys Serving Evansville and Indianapolis
Barsumian Law LLC handles motorcycle accidents when other drivers on the roadway fail to exercise reasonable care in the operation of their cars or trucks, when they fail to keep a proper lookout for motorcycles, and when they fail to yield the right of way to a motorcycle. Because of the open nature of motorcycle riding, accidents frequently result in the driver or passenger being thrown from the motorcycle or dragged by the motorcycle or another vehicle. Minor impacts with cars, vans, and tracks can cause major injuries to motorcyclists, including road rashes, burns, severe bruising and lacerations, broken bones, brain damage, amputation, and death.
When the injuries and damages in a case are high, which is all-too-often the case with motorcycle accidents, it is important to secure legal counsel from an attorney who knows how to investigate your case, gather appropriate evidence in your case, and effectively present your case to insurance adjusters, defense lawyers, judges, and juries.
Barsumian Law LLC is ready, willing, and able to assist motorcycle riders or motorcycle passengers who have been injured by negligent acts or omissions of other drivers and family members of motorcyclists who have died from motor vehicle accident injuries.
'Through No Fault Of Your Own' — But What If You Share Responsibility?
We offer free consultations and if we take your case, we charge no fee unless you obtain a recovery. We will work aggressively to demonstrate liability against negligent drivers, reckless drivers, drunk drivers, and negligent trucking and bus companies.
Clients sometimes ask if compensation can still be obtained if they played a part, or were partly at fault, in causing an accident. Indiana's comparative fault scheme follows the 51% bar rule, which means an injured party can recover damages and compensation so long as that party is not 51% or more at fault in an accident.
The most important thing you can do to obtain compensation for the injuries you have suffered is to hire the right legal counsel to represent you. You need a lawyer experienced in handling the complex liability issues and severe injuries that often surface in motorcycle accident claims.
