The number of motorcycle accidents on Ohio roads resulting in death increases every year. Regardless of helmet use and body protection, the majority of these accidents occur in daylight by careless drivers. Due to the small size and minimal protection of motorcycles, motorcyclists often suffer severe injuries. Additionally, there is sometimes bias against motorcyclists by insurance adjusters and jury members.

Serious Injury in Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycles and their drivers have the exact same rights as all other vehicles on the road. However, motorcycle riders are at higher risk for serious injuries or wrongful death when careless drivers cause auto accidents. Most motorcycle accidents result from drivers simply not seeing the motorcyclist, and these accidents often result in serious brain or spinal injuries. Litigating a motorcycle accident lawsuit is complex because insurance companies and jury members typically assume the motorcyclist is at fault. We help injured motorcycle riders and their families after they have sustained a variety of injuries such as:
- Bulging disk
- Herniated disk
- Fractures and broken bones
- Joint injuries
- Road Rash
