Distracted, drunk, or aggressive drivers and other risks can make our roads and highways very dangerous places for motorcycle riders. Statistics from the Kansas Department of Transportation show that motorcycle accidents result in dozens of deaths and hundreds of serious injuries each year. The data also shows that crashes involving motorcycles are more likely to result in injuries and death than crashes involving other vehicles.

When you’ve been injured in a motorcycle accident, navigating the medical and legal ramifications can be overwhelming. You may feel tempted to simply take the first settlement the insurance company offers in an attempt to resolve the situation as quickly as possible. But a low settlement will probably not relieve the financial stress caused by a serious injury accident. You may find that the compensation you receive falls well short of what you need to pay for your damages. Our attorneys can assess all of your damages, both past and future, and advise you of a value for your claim that we believe you are entitled to receive.
We will fight to get you the compensation you deserve to fully cover your losses. You can be confident that when the evidence points to negligence by another driver or other party, our Topeka motorcycle accident lawyer will not back down but will forcefully negotiate with the insurer to get you the best possible outcome.
When you trust our law firm with your case, you will receive individualized attention and support from a Topeka motorcycle accident attorney who is prepared to stand with you every step of the way. You will never be left to deal with complex insurance and legal issues on your own or wonder what you should do and what rights you have. We cannot fix your physical or emotional injuries, but we can lessen your stress and anxiety about your financial future.
While it may be another driver that is to blame for your accident, you can also be financially compensated if defective bike parts or poor road conditions contributed to causing your injuries. In such cases, parts manufacturers or agencies tasked with maintaining roads could also be named in claims. More than one party could potentially be liable depending on all the circumstances of your crash.
The amount of compensation you could get is based on the extent of your injuries and damages, the strength of the evidence showing fault, and insurance coverage limits of at-fault parties. Damages that may be sought in motorcycle accident cases include:
A motorcycle accident lawyer from our firm will closely analyze your case, taking every detail into account to maximize potential compensation and help you protect your future.
Motorcycle accidents happen quickly, and the aftereffects are confusing. Here we answer common questions about the claims process following an accident.
How will you help me with the insurance settlement process?
We will help you with the insurance settlement process by investigating your accident, gathering evidence to establish fault, and assessing your damages. Then we will negotiate with the at-fault party’s insurance company to get you the maximum compensation you deserve.
What happens if the insurance company will not settle?
If the insurance company will not settle or provides a low-ball offer, we will advise you about potentially taking your case to trial. While the majority of accident cases settle out of court, our experienced trial lawyers have the skill to fight for your rights in front of a judge or jury.
Will I have to testify in court if my case goes to trial?
If your case goes to trial, you will most likely have to testify in court if you are physically able. You should not feel anxious about testifying. Our skilled Topeka motorcycle accident attorney will ensure that you are well prepared to take the stand.
How long do I have to file a motorcycle accident lawsuit?
You have two years from the date of your accident or the date you discovered your injuries to file a motorcycle accident lawsuit. Once the statute of limitations runs out, you may not be able to sue. There are some exceptions to this rule that we can advise you about.
How long will my motorcycle accident case take?
How long your case takes depends on whether your case settles or goes to trial. Cases that settle may be resolved in as little as a few months, while those that go to court can take a year or more. We will work hard to try and establish strong evidence of liability to encourage the insurer to settle quickly, but if a fair settlement is not forthcoming, our experienced trial lawyers will fight for your interests in court.

”Palmer law group helped me get everything in order so I wouldn’t have to stress. Dustin took time to explain everything happening with my case thoroughly, and gave his best advise. He took things off my plate that I didn’t have the energy for. Without their help, I would’ve been given the runaround by insurance companies. It felt great to have Palmer Law Group in my corner.” – Sommer Brecheisen (Google Review)
