“I Didn’t See It” Is Not An Excuse For Motorcycle Accidents

Almost every motorcycle accident involves the nonmotorcycle driver saying the same thing: “I just didn’t see it.” There is no excuse for not being aware of your surroundings on the road and bad drivers need to be held accountable for their negligence.

If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, the experienced lawyers at Bashein & Bashein Company, L.P.A., can help you get the compensation you deserve. Our Cleveland firm has been providing injury victims throughout Ohio with outstanding legal services since 1949. We have extensive experience practicing in a broad range of courts, all the way up to the Ohio Supreme Court. This experience can give our attorneys the edge you need, as we know what judges and juries are looking for in a case.

From Harleys to “crotch rockets”/streetbikes, choppers to cruisers — we understand the legal concerns of riders and the serious consequences that can arise from accidents involving motorcycles with other vehicles.

When the time comes to choose a lawyer to protect your rights, experience matters. Motorcycle injury cases have the potential to be very complex, making it extremely important to have an attorney on your side who understands what it takes to create a compelling case. To discuss your case in a free consultation, contact us today.

Motorcycle Accidents Have Terrible Consequences

The openness and freedom of a motorcycle is what attracts many riders, but it also poses significantly higher risks of serious injuries in a crash. We fight aggressively to secure compensation for the victims of:

  • Head injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Amputations
  • Neck injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Fractures
  • Burn injuries
  • Road rash
  • Disfigurement

Loud Pipes Save Lives … But They Can Also Hurt Your Case

Although loud pipes on a motorcycle can make it much easier for other drivers to know you are there and thus help you avoid accidents, loud pipes also introduce some problems when it comes to the court case.

In your case, the defendant will probably have witnesses who claim you were speeding, because they mistake the sound of loud exhaust pipes for speed.

We’ve seen this before and know how to effectively defend against it. We work with some of the top accident reconstructionists in the state and will use their knowledge to bolster your case.
