Riding a motorcycle should be an enjoyable experience. It should not be one fraught with fear or danger when other vehicles are careless, roads are not adequately maintained, or a motorcycle manufacturer has been negligent in some way. Motorcycle injuries are often extensive, even with the proper protection in place. When this happens, it is critical to act quickly to protect yourself and others. Lever & Ecker, PLLC can assist in this effort.
We’ve represented many motorcyclists who have suffered injuries that had nothing to do with their ability to control their bikes. Because of the stigma that sometimes accompanies a motorcycle, many riders don’t realize that they have the right to fair compensation when someone has caused them harm on the road. However, we have successfully obtained for our clients the compensation they deserve when a simple motorcycle ride has resulted in harm due to carelessness or negligence by another.
Our philosophy at Lever & Ecker, PLLC is centered on the concept of fairness. If you ride a motorcycle, you are expected to learn how to handle it safely and effectively. Therefore, if you are harmed on your bike through no fault of your own, you should not be forced to suffer the consequences.
