Fight prejudice against bikers when you seek compensation

The seriousness of semi-truck accidents was highlighted in our previous blog post. If you recall, we discussed the accident in which a semi-truck driver might have fallen asleep at the wheel of the large truck prior to crashing into a group of six bikers who were parked on the side of the road. Of those six bikers, four were injured and two died.

We know that bikers enjoy being out on the open road. That love of the open road shouldn't turn into a life-threatening event. This is why major public service announcement campaigns run to remind all drivers to be sure they watch out for motorcycles.

When you are injured in an accident or if you lose a loved one, you might feel a strong desire to hold the driver who caused the accident accountable. One of the first things you will have to do if you plan to seek compensation is to determine who should be held accountable. We can help you make that determination.

In the case of a semi-truck accident, the person who most people think of listing as a defendant in a personal injury or wrongful death case is the trucker. We investigate the accident and related factors to determine if other individuals or entities should be held accountable. You might opt to add the trucking company, insurance company or others as defendants in your claim for compensation.

Just because you were on a motorcycle when the accident occurred doesn't mean that you shouldn't receive compensation. We fight on your behalf against the prejudices you might come across when you seek compensation for a motorcycle accident. Remember, you only have three years from the accident to file your claim in North Carolina.
