Motorcycle Accidents

The majority of motorcycle accidents are caused by cars with inattentive drivers. Because of the lack of protection provided by a motorcycle, the injuries to the rider are frequently severe or catastrophic. If you have been injured in a motorcycle crash, you need a Kansas City motorcycle accident lawyer to protect your rights.

At Dougherty & Holloway, LLC, we have more than 30 years of experience in achieving successful settlements and verdicts for victims of motorcycle accidents. We understand the difficulties that motorcycle riders face when they try to hold negligent drivers accountable for their actions. We know how a severe injury can impact the rest of your life, and we will work diligently to obtain the compensation you are entitled to for your injuries.

Educating You on Motorcycle Accidents

There is a strong bias against motorcycle riders who are involved in accidents. Many people, including insurance adjusters and jury members, often assume that anyone who rides a motorcycle is reckless. Therefore a large part of our job in these cases is to educate the insurance adjuster or the jury about the realities of motorcycling. Our extensive experience in motorcycle accident cases means that we are always ready to do so.

Being Vunerable On The Road

We understand that most motorcycle riders are very careful when driving and are hyper-aware of what is going on around them because they know they are much more vulnerable than other vehicles on the road. Our attorneys have handled cases involving these and other issues in motorcycle accidents:

  • Head-on crashes
  • Accidents involving lack of visual recognition on the part of the other driver
  • Road hazards
  • Motorcycle design defects
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Road rash
  • Wrongful death

Please visit our motorcycle site for more information.

We will sit down with you to discuss the events surrounding your accident. Then, we will investigate your accident, showing negligence on the part of the other driver or any other party that can be held accountable. Our lawyers will consult with your doctors regarding your progress and ultimate prognosis to determine the full extent of your injuries and the probable cost of your accident.

We will negotiate with your insurance company for the money you need to cover medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. This includes future costs such as continuing therapies, specialized equipment and future lost wages if you are unable to return to work. We will take care of dealing with your insurance company so that you can concentrate on the most important job of all: getting better.
