North Carolina Motorcycle Injury Attorney
Experienced personal injury attorney Carl Nagle of Nagle & Associates understands the ever-present risk of a motorcycle crash, the best ways to protect yourself from traffic hazards such as distracted drivers, and the general refusal of other motorists to watch out for motorcycles.
As a former insurance defense lawyer, he also understands how motorcyclists' damages claims are routinely undervalued and settled for far less than their actual worth. If you have a claim for damages in the aftermath of a motorcycle accident, contact your fellow motorcyclist Carl Nagle for immediate legal advice and guidance.
Our Winston-Salem lawyer arms you with every possible fact and option you need to be aware of about your case, including rider rules and North Carolina rules of the road.
State motorcycle laws you should know about include:
- The helmet law, which requires riders and passengers to wear motorcycle helmets. (Eye protection, such as goggles, is not required.)
- Mandatory liability insurance with minimum policy limits of $30,000 per person, $60,000 per incident and $25,000 for property damage.
- A statute of limitations requiring that a personal injury claim be brought within three years of your accident; for wrongful death, within two years of the date of the death.
- The Motorcycles Sharing Lanes law, which states that all motorcycles are entitled to full use of a lane. This subsection of the law does not apply to motorcycles operated two abreast in a single lane; also that motorcycles shall not be operated more than two abreast in a single lane.
Carl Nagle is a former insurance adjuster, former insurance defense attorney and an aggressive advocate for the injured — someone who has seen the justice system work from a variety of perspectives. He is also a motorcycle rider in his own right who shares your love of the road and wants you to be able to travel safely. When a motorist's carelessness results in an accident, and serious or catastrophic injury to you or a loved one, he knows how to get results — the maximum compensation you deserve for medical bills, bike repair or replacement, lost wages and pain and suffering.
