We are passionate in our commitment to protecting the rights of motorcycle riders. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) over 4,000 motorcycle crashes occur annually on US highways with over 75% involving other automobiles. Motorcycle accidents often cause catastrophic injuries resulting in huge medical expenses, lost employment, a lifetime of pain and suffering and in some cases the tragic and wrongful death of your loved one.
Although the most common cause of these crashes is the failure of the automobile driver to see the motorcycle, all too often the defense theme at trial is to “blame the biker.” At Rossetti & DeVoto, PC, we know that accidents happen to even the safest of motorcycle riders. We will vigorously fight insurance companies who unfairly deny compensation to innocent motorcycle riders injured by careless drivers.
Rossetti & DeVoto, PC has recovered substantial settlements and verdicts for the serious injuries or wrongful deaths that result from motorcycle accidents. We are familiar with the unique challenges in these accidents. The injuries are often severe, there is no PIP coverage for medical bills, and law-abiding motorcyclists are accused of causing the crash.
Prompt action to preserve evidence is critical to recovering full damages. We get to the scene with our team of reconstruction experts immediately so that we can take photos, measurements and witness statements before the key evidence disappears. We will make home and hospital visits in order to get to work on your case as soon as possible. We understand and are familiar with handling even the most catastrophic injuries including traumatic brain injuries, amputations, paralysis and spinal cord injuries, devastating fractures and wrongful death.
We know that being in a motorcycle accident can be an extremely traumatic experience, and we are here to help. Call now, for a free consultation.
