Motorcycle Accidents

Virginia Beach motorcycle accident lawyerThere are over 7 million motorcycles on the road, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. Warm, sunny weather makes Virginia an ideal place to ride motorcycles. However, motorcycle riders are more likely to be killed or injured than someone riding in an automobile when driving on busy interstates, streets or highways.

Because of the added dangers and risks of injury, motorcycle riders need their legal rights protected in the event of a collision or accident. The attorneys at The Law Firm of Carlton F. Bennett, P.L.L.C., have the experience and knowledge to represent you if you or someone you know has been injured or killed in a motorcycle accident in Virginia. We can help maximize your recovery for injuries or wrongful death including medical bills, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, permanent injury and/or loss of your loved one.

Frequently, automobile drivers find it difficult to see motorcycles. Additionally, automobile drivers often tailgate and follow motorcycles too close on the road, which makes a collision and serious injury more likely to occur. Poorly maintained roads with potholes and uneven pavement as well as weather conditions, including wet roads, also pose more of a danger to motorcycle riders than to cars. Additionally, there may be manufacturer defects in the motorcycle itself.

Our experience, thoroughness, and dedication to your case allows us to effectively negotiate with insurance companies and represent you in court if settlement is not possible.
