If you or someone you love has been injured in a preventable motorcycle crash, you may be able to recover damages by bringing a personal injury lawsuit against those at fault.
Although victims of negligence have the right to recompense, securing fair compensation can be a challenge – especially when insurance companies know motorcycle accidents can result in serious injuries and sizable payouts, and do everything they can to pay as little as possible.

Motorcyclists are overrepresented in fatal traffic crashes precisely for this reason, NHTSA data shows. Despite accounting for less than 1% of all miles driven on U.S. roads, motorcyclists make up as much as 15% of all traffic deaths.

Determining fault requires investigating what led to a crash. At Drake Law Firm, we work with professional investigators and other experts to recreate accidents and identify when and how other parties were negligent.

In some cases, multiple parties may share the blame for a crash, such as in multi-vehicle collisions or crashes that occur in heavy traffic. Our attorneys explore liability against all parties who contributed to our clients’ crashes to maximize their financial recovery.
Victims who prove a defendant’s liability can recover compensation for damages such as:

At Drake Law Firm, we leverage the insight of Attorney Benjamin Drake, who began his career in insurance defense, to help clients fight back against insurance companies that try to blame motorcyclists and dispute valid claims.
