Motorcycle and Bicycle Accident Attorney
Motorcyclists and bicyclists are at a significantly increased risk of suffering severe injuries in accidents. Even when wearing a helmet and other protective gear, the lack of a physical barrier can lead to catastrophic injuries that require more recovery and medical care than in your average automobile accident. The legal team at Shapiro Winthers & McGraw P.C. understands diagnosis and treatment options, and pursues compensation that accounts for an individual’s long-term needs.
Personal injury cases resulting from motorcycle and bicycle accidents have unique challenges. Some insurance companies and jurors will tend to treat the victim unfairly simply because he or she was riding a motorcycle or bike instead of driving a car. Cyclists are often stereotyped as being “reckless” or “irresponsible.” After many years of working these cases, the team at Shapiro Winthers & McGraw P.C. anticipates these misconceptions, working adeptly around legal barriers and overcoming biases.
