Charleston Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Over $90 Million Recovered in Settlements & Judgments

While motorcycles are less expensive to own and operate, they are more dangerous than other types of transportation. Without the protection of seat belts, air bags, and other safety features, you can sustain serious, life-altering injuries in a motorcycle accident.

If you suffered an accident from the negligence of others, you have the right to be compensated for your many damages. At Rod Smith Law PLLC, we can provide the legal assistance needed after a motorcycle accident to ensure that your personal injury claim is handled professionally while you focus on recovering.

No recovery, no fee. Get a free consultation by contacting a Charleston motorcycle accident attorney at (304) 406-7076 or reaching out to us online.

Our legal team has earned a reputation for recovering the damages our clients deserve. We hold negligent parties accountable, whether it is another motorist, a motorcycle manufacturer, or even government entities in charge of roadways.

The more than $90 million that we have recovered on behalf of clients reflects the high level of skill, knowledge, and determination we bring to every case.

What Causes Motorcycle Accidents in West Virginia?

Motorcycle accidents are most commonly caused by driver error on the part of other motorists. Your compensatory damages for such injuries can include pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, and more.

These errors can include:

  • Failure to see motorcycles
  • Distracted driving (texting, eating, drinking, grooming, etc.)
  • Cutting off motorcyclists due to not checking mirrors or blind spots
  • Failure to yield to motorcyclists

Other causes for motorcycle accidents can include defective parts as well as hazardous or defective roadways. All of these causes indicate careless or negligent behavior on the part of others that can lead to severe road rash, cuts, lacerations, organ damage, fractures, spinal injuries, brain injuries, amputations, and more.
