Motorcycling is a popular activity among Louisiana residents, whether they ride for enjoyment, transportation or both. Although motorcyclists have the same rights to the road as other motorists, they are often treated with less respect. This is unfortunate, because motorcyclists are much more vulnerable to injury than drivers of enclosed vehicles.
At the Law Office of John W. Redmann, LLC, we understand the substantial risks and the immense rewards that motorcycle riders experience by pursuing their passions. Our New Orleans motorcycle accident lawyers understand that motorcyclists have rights, and we defend those rights on the road and in the courtroom.
Often after a motorcyclist is injured in a collision, the driver of the automobile or semi truck involved will say “I didn’t see him.” While it is true that motorcycles are smaller than cars or trucks, this explanation is often just a poor excuse for driver distraction or inattention.
Sadly, law enforcement agencies often ignore evidence of driver negligence because they assume the motorcyclist, with a smaller and more agile vehicle, must be at fault. As a result, any motorcyclist injured in an accident faces an uphill battle in the pursuit of legal justice and monetary compensation.
Also, poor road conditions — including poorly maintained pavements, unmarked turns or hazards and blind intersections — may contribute to motorcycle accidents. Transportation authorities and local governments are often reluctant to admit when their oversights directly contribute to injury accidents or fatalities.
If you were injured in a motorcycle accident, our New Orleans injury attorneys can help you cut through the excuses and get to the truth, so you can recover damages for your medical bills, lost wages, temporary or permanent disability and other losses. If you need long-term or permanent medical assistance as a result of a head injury, spinal cord injury or other serious condition caused by an accident, we can help.
Further, if your spouse, your child or another family member died from motorcycle accident injuries, our law firm can help you recover damages in a wrongful death lawsuit.
With the assistance of an accident reconstructionist, medical experts and vocational counselors, our motorcycle accident attorneys can identify the causes of your accident and the negligent parties that contributed to it. We can use that information to aggressively pursue compensation for you, in court or in negotiations. You can rely on our respected lawyers to discuss the details of your case with you and explain your options.
