Providing Real Help To The Injured Since 1979
A Legal Ally For Victims Of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycles have the same right to travel on North Carolina roads and highways as any other type of vehicle. Unfortunately, many drivers fail to recognize this right, sometimes causing harm to the men and women who ride motorcycles. At Downer, Walters & Mitchener, P.A., we recognize your right to enjoy the open road, and we will fight to protect your interests after an accident.
If you suffered serious injuries in a motorcycle accident, our attorneys offer the legal representation you need. Other drivers may not recognize your right to share the road, but we do, and we will work diligently to hold liable parties accountable and pursue the maximum compensation you deserve.
We Hold Negligent Drivers Accountable
Like people on bicycles, individuals on motorcycles are largely unprotected against impacts involving larger, heavier vehicles, telephone poles or other roadside objects. Even with the necessary protective equipment, bikers often suffer grave injuries in motorcycle accidents. The reckless decisions and negligent actions of other drivers are often to blame for this type of collision. Reasons for your accident may include:
- Failure to properly yield
- Crowding the lane
- Failure to see the motorcycle
- Speeding or driving recklessly
- Distracted driving
- Failure to follow at a safe distance
Regardless of the reason for your accident, we can work with you, evaluate your case and explain your legal options and fight for the full compensation you deserve. Since 1979, our lawyers have successfully fought on behalf of accident victims, and we know what it takes to build a strong case. If necessary, we will employ our resources and our litigation experience to fight for the full and fair recovery you deserve in court.
Some people think bikers are risk takers, but our experienced personal injury attorneys will counter that narrative at every opportunity. We fight back against any prejudice against bikers in the courtroom and around the negotiating table, making sure others hear your side of the story.
