Frequently, drivers of cars and trucks simply do not see motorcyclists. As drivers of larger vehicles, they subconsciously are looking only for vehicles the same size as the vehicle they are driving. After a collision, the driver of the car or truck will often say the motorcyclist “came out of nowhere.” In fact, the motorcyclist came from “somewhere” and that “somewhere” was a place where the other driver wasn’t looking and wasn’t paying attention in violation of the laws regarding rights of way of motorcyclists. Motorcycle accidents frequently result in serious bodily injury, such as spinal cord injuries and brain injuries. Symptoms of a crash-related traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) may take months to appear. Yet a TBI can rob you of your memory and mental abilities.

“I was injured in two separate automobile accidents which were two years apart. In addition to the injuries sustained in those accidents I had other serious medical problems which made both cases much more complicated. Patiently and professionally Mr. Smith navigated both accident claims with four different insurance companies and obtained total settlements for both cases that we were very happy with.”
