Serious Personal Injuries in a Motorcycle Accident?

“We Care About Motorcycle Riders”

Motorcycle accident attorney in Fairmont, Clarksburg, Morgantown and surrounding areas of West Virginia.

Have you been injured in a motorcycle accident through no fault of your own? If you have suffered serious personal injuries as a result of someone else’s negligence or reckless behavior, contact Whiteman Burdette, PLLC, right away. We care about our motorcycle riders. Although each accident is different, most of the motorcycle accident cases that we have handled have been caused by negligence on the part of the other vehicle operator and could have been prevented. Unfortunately, many motorcycle accidents result in serious injuries or even death.

If you or your loved one have been injured due to the recklessness or negligence of someone else, you deserve justice and financial compensation for your losses.

Compensation for Brain Injury, Broken Bones, and Paralysis

Motorcycles do not contain the same advanced protective features as those contained in modern passenger vehicles. Motorcyclists are significantly more vulnerable to sustaining serious bodily injury when involved in a collision. We frequently witness severe and disabling injuries suffered by our riders, including traumatic brain injury, broken bones, spinal cord injury, amputations, paralysis, internal injuries, facial, neck, and dental damage, scarring, and disfigurement. We assist our clients with recovering compensation for these injuries and losses, as well as pain and suffering. At times, we are approached by the surviving family member of the rider who has, unfortunately, lost his or her life. Our attorneys are available to assist in all of these cases, including wrongful deaths. Contact us for a free initial consultation.
