Johns Pass Motorcycle Accident Attorney
The breeze against your face, the sun shining down, the wide-open roads, and a sense of freedom are all reasons why we choose to ride. Motorcycles are an excellent choice of transportation due to their great gas efficiency and compact parking abilities, and are equally enjoyable to ride simply for the pleasure of being outside. Unfortunately, riding a motorcycle comes with a serious risk—a risk imposed by careless, selfish drivers who are more concerned about making it to their destinations 15 seconds quicker, usually while happily distracting themselves by answering texts and social media comments. If you were injured in a motorcycle collision, you have the right to demand compensation in the form of a personal injury claim. Our Johns Pass motorcycle accident attorney at Reep Coleman & Stubbendorff assists injured riders with everything from compiling damages to negotiating the final settlement offer. If you were hurt in a motorcycle crash, our lawyers are here to help.

Damages in a Johns Pass motorcycle collision typically involve lost income, lost earning ability, medical expenses and future cost of care, pain and suffering, property damage to the motorcycle itself, loss of joy of life, and more. If you were injured, we encourage you to consider working with an attorney. Even if the other party admits fault, their insurance company will undoubtedly tell you that your case is worth much less than it actually is.
