Our lawyers are experienced attorneys who have successfully tried and settled many motorcycle injury cases, and, just as importantly, we are riders ourselves.

Experts to Consider
An expert witness is one who has special knowledge, proficiency, or experience to be considered an authority on a certain subject. After a motorcycle accident, your attorney may discuss the following types of expert witnesses with you:
- Accident reconstructionists. These experts in their field can help attorneys, insurance adjusters, juries and judges understand how your accident likely happened and who was at fault for causing the crash.
- Economists. Economists can help put a value on your future damages, lost wages, and diminished earning potential.
- Doctors. Doctors can talk about your injury prognosis. They can explain what your ongoing medical needs may be and how your injuries may impact your daily living activities and ability to work in the future.
Other experts may also be suggested based on the unique circumstances of your case. As with every legal decision, your lawyer will discuss the pros and cons of hiring an expert with you and help you get the maximum compensation for your injuries.
