Motorcycle Accident Causes
Motorcycle accidents are often caused by many of the same factors that contribute to car and truck accidents. Drivers who break traffic laws or who fail to pay attention to their surroundings can cause accidents, for instance. In addition, individuals who drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol or who are using their cell phones pose a severe threat to themselves and to others on the road.
The motorcycle accident lawyers at our practice are committed to making sure that the parties responsible for the suffering of victims are held accountable for their actions. We have the experience and tenacity that is necessary to stand up against insurance companies in order to ensure that victims’ rights are protected. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, contact the attorneys at Girdwood & Williams. We will seek to ensure that you are awarded the maximum financial compensation possible for your injuries.
Motorcycle Accident Injuries
Because motorcycles and bicycles do not offer their riders any external protection, motorcycle and bicycle accident victims run a greater risk of suffering brain and spinal cord injuries. These injuries can result in substantial hospital bills, physical therapy costs, and other medical expenses. In addition, victims and their families may be faced with loss of wages and other financial hardships. Our motorcycle and bicycle accident lawyers can provide victims with the resources and legal representation they need to begin putting their lives back together.

Motorcycle and Bicycle Accident Attorneys Serving Wilmington and all of Southeastern North Carolina
Thousands of pedestrians and bicyclists are injured in accidents every year in the United States. Many of these accidents cause serious harm to the victims, such as traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries, and some accidents even result in wrongful death. For over 20 years combined, our bicycle and pedestrian accident attorneys have fought for justice. If you or a loved one has been injured in a bicycle or pedestrian accident, the lawyers at Girdwood & Williams will work tirelessly to ensure that you receive the financial compensation that you deserve for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other costs.
Automobile, truck, and motorcycle drivers bear a responsibility every time they get behind the wheel of their vehicles to follow the rules of the road and to constantly be aware of any pedestrian activity. If drivers fail to exercise caution at stop signs, school bus stops, crosswalks, and stop lights, they can be held accountable for their recklessness and negligence if they strike a pedestrian. In the event that pedestrians are jaywalking and do not have the right of way, drivers may still be required by law to stop and let them cross.
The legal doctrine known as “last clear chance” provides that a driver can be held liable for injuring a pedestrian if he or she had any opportunity at all to avoid the pedestrian and prevent the accident from occurring, even if the injured pedestrian was also in the wrong.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a pedestrian accident, our lawyers can help ensure that you receive financial compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Schedule a free consultation with the pedestrian accident attorneys at our practice for a thorough review of your case.
In addition to the harm they can cause pedestrians, reckless and inattentive drivers also pose a threat to bicyclists. Drivers who speed, fail to adhere to stop signs and stoplights, or who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol can seriously injure bicyclists if they hit them with their vehicles.
If the bike itself is defective or its brakes or pedals caused an accident to occur, then a product liability lawsuit may be filed against the manufacturer. Additionally, the government or other public agencies may be held liable if a bicycle accident was caused by a pothole or other hazardous condition on a public road or sidewalk.
If you have been injured while riding a bicycle, our accident attorneys have experience in investigating all aspects of your accident in seeking to prove to a jury how another party’s negligence is responsible for your injuries. Our bicycle accident lawyers will work to ensure that you receive financial compensation for your pain and suffering, medical bills, and other damages.
