Was Your Motorcycle Accident Caused by Negligence?
Like any other personal injury case, you must prove that another party is liable for your injuries to win your case. It doesn’t matter if your crash was an accident. The negligent party should pay for your losses.
We take on motorcycle accident cases involving negligence or reckless, such as:
- Distracted driving
- Reckless driving
- Careless pedestrians
- Manufacture defects
- Property owner negligence
- Unsafe road conditions
When a driver, pedestrian, manufacturer, or other party acts carelessly, you should not have to pay for their negligence. The law firm of Berger and Green may help you ease the burden of high medical bills, lost wages, physical and emotional stress, or the loss of a loved one through a claim or lawsuit.
