Serious Injuries From Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle and motor-scooter accidents are very common in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and Cary. With rising fuel costs, motorcycles are being used much more frequently as a primary mode of travel. Motor-scooters and mopeds are also more common, especially among college students and inner-city residents.
Personal injury lawyer Carl Nagle has owned and operated a motorcycle for nearly 30 years. Nagle & Associates handles a large number of motorcycle accident cases, and we have a great deal of experience handling these serious injury claims. Unfortunately, riders have very little protection when a collision occurs. Further, insurance companies often deny payment on motorcycle accident and injury claims by blaming the motorcycle rider for the accident. Always seek immediate legal help if you are involved in a motorcycle accident in North Carolina. Insurance adjusters are paid to oppose your case and minimize their payment on all of your claims. Please don't take legal advice from the adjuster who is paid to work against you.
Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents typically produce catastrophic injuries, including traumatic brain injury, multiple fractures, spinal injuries and occasional fatalities. The Raleigh personal injury lawyers at Nagle & Associates deal only with serious injury cases, and we have medical experts available to document and prove the true extent of all injuries. This experience allows us to build your case and to collect generous payment for all injury-related claims, including future care costs, loss of earning ability, loss of mobility, and your pain and suffering.
Carl Nagle also has a great deal of experience handling bicycle accident cases in Raleigh and throughout North Carolina. Bicyclists have the right to share our roadways, but inattentive drivers often cause serious injuries when they fail to notice or yield to bicycle riders.
If you have been in an accident involving a motorcycle or bicycle, contact us. Before founding Nagle & Associates, P.A., Carl Nagle gained valuable experience representing insurance companies who were defending cases like yours. After working in that capacity for several years, attorney Nagle was happy to become a Raleigh motorcycle accident attorney who only represents accident victims. Nagle & Associates also employs several adjusters and team members with years of experience on the insurance company side of the fence. This experience is invaluable to our firm, giving us unique insight into the insurance companies' approaches to these cases.
Causes of Motorcycle Accident Injuries
In Raleigh, Durham, Cary and Chapel Hill, North Carolina, there are many reasons why accidents and their corresponding injuries are more common and more severe:
- Major metropolitan area: In a major city like Raleigh, bike and motorcycle accidents become more frequent simply because there are more people.
- Lack of attention: People just don't see bikes and motorcycles as well as they should, and it is not uncommon for car and truck drivers to pull across lanes and run bikes off the road because they simply didn't see them.
- Lack of protection: When the accident happens, there is a much greater chance for serious injuries in a motorcycle or bicycle than there is in a car. Because the bike is open, the rider is not belted in, and thus is more likely to suffer serious burn injuries, scrapes and broken bones as a result of the crash.
If you have been in a motorcycle or bicycle accident, we can help you. At Nagle & Associates, P.A., we are an experienced and well-resourced team of professionals who focus solely on personal injury litigation for our North Carolina clients.
