Skilled Advocacy In Motorcycle Accident Cases
Motorcycle riders are some of the most vulnerable people on the road, without the seat belts, solid steel frames or other protections car and truck drivers have. The attorneys of DeVore, Acton & Stafford, P.A., are dedicated to helping motorcycle accident victims recover fair compensation for their injuries. We also help families obtain compensation for the wrongful death of a loved one.
Our experienced Charlotte motorcycle accident lawyers have successfully handled cases for injured bikers throughout North Carolina. Because riders are relatively unprotected, the injuries in motorcycle cases are often, unfortunately, quite severe. We understand how a serious injury such as paralysis or a brain injury can affect a rider and his or her family. That is why we strive to shoulder the legal burden for you, so you can focus on healing.
At our law firm, we understand the legal challenges facing motorcycle accident victims, especially if the case goes to a jury. Many car drivers − who may be jury members − simply do not understand or appreciate the dynamics of a motorcycle. They tend to place blame on the motorcycle rider, assuming that he or she must have done something to contribute to the collision. Further, the opposing adjuster or attorney may attempt to unfairly blame the injuries on the lack of certain protective measures, such as a helmet.
In a “pure contributory negligence” state like North Carolina, where an injured person cannot recover any compensation if he or she is even 1 percent at fault, sentiments like these can have powerful consequences.
To overcome these false perceptions, our motorcycle accident lawyers thoroughly investigate the facts of every case, working with the appropriate experts to show how the incident unfolded. We have built a reputation for rising to the challenge in difficult cases, and we have a record of results to prove it.
