If you have ever been injured in a motorcycle accident, it is important to hire experienced personal injury and motor vehicle accident lawyers to help you protect your rights. At Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers with offices in Norfolk and client meeting locations in Virginia Beach, Hampton, Newport News, Suffolk, Chesapeake, Portsmouth and the Eastern Shore of Virginia, we make sure to protect the rights of motorcycle accident victims throughout Virginia and further afield.
Motorcyclists are extremely vulnerable in cities such as Virginia Beach, Norfolk and Newport News that have fast moving highways. Interstates such as I-64, I-664, I-264 and secondary roads crisscross Virginia. Motorcycle riders have the same rights on all of these roads as every other driver. However, motorcycle accidents occur far too frequently, often with terrible and devastating results. Head injuries are common. The worst part is that many motorcycle accidents could have been easily avoided. They are often the fault of careless drivers who fail to see motorcycles.
Despite what insurance companies may say, motorcyclists should not be held responsible for the actions of careless drivers, reckless drivers and, sadly enough, drunk drivers. We will help you take a stand against insurance companies and make sure your rights are protected, on the road and in the court.
Motorcycle Accident Catastrophic Injuries
Due to their obvious lack of protection in comparison with cars and trucks, motorcycle accidents often result in particularly devastating injuries. A personal injury in a motorcycle accident could change your life forever and you may never ride a bike again if you do not get the proper medical care. We protect clients who have suffered the following personal injury crises after their motorcycle accidents:
- Soft tissue injuries
- Brain injury
- Broken bones
- Neck injuries
- Back injuries
- Wrongful death
Attorneys John Cooper and Jim Hurley have been fighting for the rights of motorcyclists for decades. The most significant cause of deaths and serious injuries to motorcyclists is other drivers. Associate attorneys Bill O’Mara and Griff O’Hanlon also work with people who have been hurt in motorcycle accidents.
