Was a loved one killed in a fatal motorcycle accident?
Our attorneys for motorcycle wrecks may be able to help fatal motorcycle accident victims’ families
Too many times motorcycle riders are killed by preventable accidents caused by distracted, impaired or reckless driving. Despite bikers’ best efforts to make their presence known, many car drivers still don’t look twice. If your loved one was killed by another driver, you may consider a wrongful death suit. Although insurance for the at-fault driver may cover some expenses, loss of the victim’s income can be an unbearable hardship for your family.

What is required to make a claim after a motorcycle wreck?
Our experienced attorneys work to build strong claims after a serious motorcycle accident.
Insurance companies must often be held accountable by proving their insured policyholder caused the accident. To make your claim, you often must collect and present evidence to prove:
- The other driver was negligent, reckless, or acted intentionally.
- The other driver was at fault and caused the accident.
- You were seriously injured by the accident.
Although every case is unique, our attorneys typically assemble evidence to prove these three facts to insurance, gathering together medical records, photos and information from the accident, testimonies, accident reports, and other information. We use this information to build a strong claim that the other driver was at fault and caused injuries in the crash.
After building a case, we negotiate on our clients’ behalf with insurance to get full compensation as quickly as possible. We stand by our client’s rights and aggressively negotiate to obtain as much compensation as possible. Every attorney’s goal is to get a full pre-trial settlement from insurance help start recovery immediately but our attorneys prepare our client’s cases to go to trial if needed. If insurance denies the claim, we take the next steps to pursue motorcycle accident claims in a lawsuit.
Your case may be different and deserves individualized attention that an attorney can provide.
Let’s make roads safer for bikers everywhere
You can make a difference and uphold biker rights
If you were injured in an motorcycle accident, holding those accountable for your accident is important to the biking community as a whole. Everyday, riders are killed by drivers who are unaware of motorcycles around them, driving motorcyclists off the road or turning in front of them, causing serious or grave injuries.
Beyond being fairly compensated for your injuries, it is important for bikers to send a message to drivers—we are here and we deserve to be safe just like anyone else on the road. Every year in Arkansas, there are about 80 fatal motorcycle crashes, according to the Arkansas Highway Safety Office of the Arkansas State Police. Many of these fatal accidents could have been prevented.
