Motorcycle Accident Representation In Iowa And Nebraska

Motorcycle accidents in Iowa and Nebraska tend to happen in springtime and early summertime when bikers first take their motorcycles out of storage and get back onto highways, country roads and city streets. Rusty handling skills along with inattentive motorists can be a deadly combination. Naturally, motorcycle accidents also happen during other times of the year.

Our Council Bluffs personal injury law firm often learns about serious crashes that have occurred on interstates such as I-80, I-680 and I-29. We also receive calls about crashes on county roads and city thoroughfares throughout southwest Iowa and Nebraska.

Whenever and wherever a motorcycle accident occurs, it is important to consult with an experienced attorney promptly.

If you were injured or if your loved one was killed in a serious motorcycle accident in Iowa or Nebraska, Telpner Peterson Law Firm, LLP, is prepared to evaluate your case with no obligation. Upon reviewing the facts, we will recommend the most promising strategies for pursuing and obtaining maximum compensation. Once you make the decision to retain our services on a contingency basis, we can begin an investigation. With what we learn, we will be ready to advocate zealously on your behalf before insurance claims adjusters, judges or juries.

Special considerations in motorcycle cases often include factors such as the following:

  • Drivers of cars, trucks and buses often claim they “did not see” a motorcycle before a crash.
  • Lawyers and insurance companies may claim that a motorcyclist was speeding, weaving in and out of traffic, not wearing a helmet or otherwise contributing to the risk element.
  • They may also blatantly overlook the idea that a motorcycle has the same right as a car or other motor vehicle to occupy a lane of traffic.
  • Juries are often biased against motorcyclists even before they hear facts about who or what caused a crash involving another vehicle.
  • Injuries suffered by motorcyclists are often more serious than those suffered by occupants of enclosed motor vehicles. A head injury, a spinal cord injury or an amputation typically means a very long recovery and lasting disabilities.
  • Motorcyclists often lack adequate insurance to cover their own serious or catastrophic injuries. Knowledgeable legal counsel can be critical as the injured biker, perhaps permanently disabled, requires financial support to recover a viable lifestyle.
