If you were injured in a motorcycle accident, the chances of your injury being serious are much higher than if you were in an automobile. Why? Because on a motorcycle, the rider is much less protected by the vehicle, and when hit by an automobile, the mass of the car is much greater than the mass of the motorcycle, causing the motorcycle and the rider to be at a severe disadvantage in any type of collision.

Talk To Us Before You Talk To The Insurance Company
Be careful about talking to insurance companies without a lawyer. For example, a specific case that we handled involved a car that struck a motorcycle. The person who caused the accident only had $12,500 in insurance, and the insurance company wanted to settle quickly. By meeting with us, we were able to obtain a settlement of $300,000 after filing a lawsuit. As it turned out, there was a second insurance policy.
In another case, a dog ran into the roadway in front of a motorcycle rider. The motorcycle rider unfortunately was unable to avoid the dog and crashed. The cyclist had very serious injuries, but he thought that since the accident was not caused by another vehicle, he had no way to recover money for his injuries. However, after meeting with our attorneys, we found the owner of the dog. Ohio has very strict liability for injuries caused by a dog. We then pursued the owner of the dog for failing to control his pet. Through the homeowner’s insurance policy of the dog owner, we obtained a large settlement for our client. Had the cyclist not talked to us, he would have gotten nothing.
Experience Counts When Representing Personal Injury Clients
John H. Phillips has experience with motorcycles. His first licensed motorcycle was a 1973 Kawasaki H2A. The H2 series was the culmination of Kawasaki’s two-stroke project. Kawasaki said of the bike, “It’s so quick it demands the razor-sharp reactions of an experienced rider.” His second motorcycle was a 1967 Triumph Bonneville. The motorcycle was a “basket case” when purchased, hauled home, then rebuilt and ridden while he worked in Minneapolis, Minnesota as an engineer. He has experienced “motorcycle blindness” by drivers who failed to observe a motorcycle before pulling into traffic. He understands the risks and joys of motorcycle riders.
