Gastonia Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Motorcycle riders enjoy the sense of freedom and adventure as they travel Gastonia’s roads, enjoying the fresh air and scenic outdoors. The small but quick vehicles are also practical, allowing riders to commute with ease. However, the benefits of riding do not erase the dangers of the road; some of the same elements that make motorcycles so much fun and unique, like speed, agility, and being exposed to the sunshine, also expose riders to significantly greater risks of injury or death.

If you or a loved one is recovering from a motorcycle crash, a Gastonia motorcycle accident lawyer from DeMayo Law Offices can seek financial compensation for your losses. You deserve to recover the money you will need to put your life back together. Our personal injury lawyers in Gastonia can review the accident and advise you on your options. Call us today for a free consultation.

Our Gastonia Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Will Work to Recover All Your Damages

The lawyers at DeMayo Law Offices care deeply about our clients and work diligently to ensure they have the compensation they need after a devastating accident. Many injured motorcyclists suffer catastrophic wounds, such as traumatic brain injuries, that can upend their lives for months or years. A Gastonia catastrophic injury lawyer from our firm can work to recover payment for their medical bills and other expenses.

Since opening our doors more than 30 years ago, we have helped over 125,000 people recover over $1 billion in court judgments and settlements, as our case results show. We will use our combined 250-plus years of experience to recover the compensation you should receive.  

We strive to provide professional legal representation and an exceptional client experience for everyone who chooses us. We are selective in the injury cases we work on because we want to dedicate our time and resources to making a difference and leaving our clients in a better financial position.

We Will Handle the Insurance Company After the Accident

When you hire DeMayo Law Offices, you get a team of legal professionals who are ready to take the lead on insurance negotiation talks. We will protect your rights and interests and shield you from any claims that could delay or derail your recovery.

Some accident victims are hesitant to work with insurers for many reasons. They already have injuries to treat, so filing a claim can feel like a chore, especially when they consider the possible back-and-forth over a claim that goes nowhere. With us working on your case, you won’t have to worry about that–we will do it for you.

Insurers Can Try to Pin Blame for the Accident on Riders in Bike Collisions

Some insurance companies hold unfavorable views of motorcycle riders, which can influence their decisions about paying claims in bike crash cases. They could challenge your claim, saying you caused the wreck because you were speeding, weaving through traffic, or engaging in other risk-taking road behavior. 

We can challenge those assumptions or any others with evidence, such as witness testimony or video footage, and protect you from such treatment. If you have heard from an insurer, do not verbally agree to anything or sign any paperwork until you talk to one of our motorcycle crash injury lawyers in Gastonia, NC.

We Can Handle Your Motorcycle Injury Case During Your Recovery

You need time to rest and recover after a traumatic experience. While you focus on restoring your health, you won’t have to worry about filing legal paperwork, contacting other parties, or answering daily emails or phone calls. Our motorcycle crash attorneys serving Gastonia, NC, will do that for you. 

 We also will:

  • Investigate the crash to understand what took place and why.
  • Collect and review case-supporting evidence (e.g., an accident report, witness testimony, photos, video footage, crash debris from the accident scene).
  • Identify the liable parties who potentially owe you damages and prove how their negligence caused the accident.
  • Document your damages and assign a monetary dollar amount to your case.
  • Prepare a lawsuit for damages if we cannot settle with insurers.
  • File your lawsuit on time and in accordance with North Carolina’s statute of limitations.
  • Seek your monetary compensation at trial.

Our team will keep you updated on all developments in your case and explain applicable laws. You can also call us with questions and concerns and expect a prompt response. To get started, call us today for a free consultation.

North Carolina Motorcycle Crash Lawsuits Have Filing Deadlines

Injured parties can seek financial damages in the civil courts, but they have a set time to do so. North Carolina’s statute of limitations deadline limits the time you have to sue for losses after a motorcycle crash. 

Generally, parties have three years from the accident date to sue for damages, per North Carolina General Statutes § 1-52. Parties in wrongful death cases generally have two years from the decedent’s death date to take action, per North Carolina General Statutes § 1-53.

We recommend that you call our team now to get started. If the deadline expires before you file, you risk losing your right to sue the liable party for damages.
