Motorcycle Accidents

Getting Straight Answers

The attorneys of Chalat Hatten & Banker have represented victims in every type of roadway accident, and with every type of injury or circumstances of wrongful death. We know that deep experience, insight, and compassion are required. As the victim you are likely facing many months of painful physical and emotional recovery; or as the bereaved family, your suffering is already unimaginable. We’d like to be the experienced legal ally on your side, letting you focus on the difficult process of healing and closure, starting now.

Like every roadway accident, careful investigation and research is crucial to a successful claim for a motorcycle accident. A traffic citation may not determine responsibility in a civil lawsuit. If you were involved in a motorcycle accident, we can answer you questions about who’s responsible, how you will pay for medical expenses and loss of income, and whether you may have a potentially successful case.

How This Works

Every case begins with a story and we want to hear yours. Call and you will reach a partner of the firm, probably the one who will handle your matter. We will answer your questions, explain the legal basis for a possible claim and how we can help.

A careful case review will be performed by your lawyer to assess the strengths and weaknesses of your case.  Then the conclusions of this review are presented to you in a thorough, understandable manner.

Experience That Matters

Motorcycle Accidents

The common factor in most motorcycle accidents involving a second vehicle is the failure of the other driver to register the presence of the motorcycle. Most motorcyclists who are involved in accidents are not the at-fault driver, but the victim. Per vehicle mile traveled, motorcyclists are over 30 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a traffic crash. For all two-vehicle crashes during 2011 involving a motorcycle, over a third occurred when the other vehicle was turning left while the motorcycle was going straight, passing, or overtaking another vehicle.

Riding a motorcycle is not the same as driving a car, and we understand the implications of those differences when reconstructing a motorcycle accident and presenting the case to the jury. While we may not put on leathers and go for a run every weekend, we have successfully represented many clients that do, and would welcome the opportunity to help you.
