MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS SERVING LEBANON AND ALL OF SOUTHWESTERN OHIO
There is nothing quite like riding a motorcycle. The freedom of the open road is alluring — and can be dangerous. While motorcycles are one of the most enthralling ways to travel, an accident involving a bike can lead to serious injury and even death. Motorcycle riders are simply more vulnerable to accidents than other drivers, even if they’re wearing protective gear. They’re also more likely to suffer severe injuries when they’re involved in a crash with another vehicle or even in a single-vehicle accident.
If you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident, you need the assistance of an attorney who understands the difficulties of proving that somebody else was responsible for your crash. Too many people have prejudices against bikers or assume that if you’re riding a motorcycle, you have assumed the risk of being seriously hurt.
Tom Diehl knows how to litigate motorcycle accident cases, from gathering facts and investigating the case to offering expert witness testimony to prove that the other driver was at fault for your accident. We'll guide you throughout the process, making sure that you have top-notch legal representation. We offer personalized service and we never charge a fee unless we succeed in getting a settlement or award for you. If you live in Lebanon, Wilmington, Hamilton, or Hillsboro, Ohio, reach out today to schedule a free consultation.
The Unique Challenges of Motorcycle Cases
While most people have moved past the outdated notion that all bikers are outlaws or part of some sort of gang, many Americans still believe that riding a motorcycle is so risky that an accident must be the rider’s fault. At Diehl & Hubbell, we recognize the special challenges inherent in motorcycle cases — and we meet those issues head on to obtain the highest possible recovery for our clients.
Motorcyclists are incredibly vulnerable to the negligence of other drivers. Even if a rider does everything correctly, another vehicle on the road can do something that leads to a tragic accident — with the rider often bearing the brunt of the trauma. Because motorcycle accidents can result in such severe injuries, it takes a seasoned personal injury attorney who understands the nature of these cases to get a successful resolution. At Diehl & Hubbell, we look beyond the police report and work with expert witnesses to present the strongest possible case.
Motorcycle accidents can happen in any number of ways — and when one occurs, it isn’t always obvious what the case of an accident may be. Poorly-maintained or defective roads can cause a motorcycle to spin out and crash. A driver’s sudden lane change can result in an accident when the biker has to brake suddenly. The driver may continue driving, making it difficult to show who was truly at fault for the crash. These types of cases can be hard to prove — which is why it is so important to hire a top-notch motorcycle accident attorney.
Discovering Who Really is at Fault
At Diehl & Hubbell, we'll investigate all angles of a motorcycle accident to figure out who was truly responsible. A local government or business may be liable for failing to properly maintain roads. Another driver could be at fault for not signaling a turn or not respecting the rights of way. Your own insurance company may even be on the hook if the driver who caused the accident cannot be located; an uninsured motorist coverage rider on your insurance policy may cover for your loss.
We'll fully evaluate your case and aggressively litigate to make sure that you get the compensation that you deserve. This may include negotiating a settlement with an insurance company or going to trial. Whatever it takes, we'll make sure that it is done right.
