Cleveland Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

Cleveland, Strongsville Cycle Crash Lawyers

One hundred sixty-six motorcyclists died on Ohio roads and highways in 2009, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Many more suffered serious, sometimes life-altering injuries.

If you were injured in a motorcycle accident, you may be facing significant financial challenges in addition to the physical pain of your injury. The attorneys at Russo, Rosalina & Co., LPA, know how to help. Our law firm is experienced in obtaining financial compensation for people injured in motorcycle accidents. We also represent family members of those who died in motorcycle crashes.

We know that other drivers are often the cause of motorcycle accidents. Distracted drivers may turn in front of motorcyclists, pull into their lane or fail to yield when a biker has the right of way. Aggressive drivers may intentionally drive a motorcyclist off the road. If the other driver's negligence, carelessness or recklessness led to an accident that injured you, our law firm will pursue fair compensation for the full extent of your injuries.

How Motorcycle Accidents Are Different

Motorcycle accident cases are different from typical car accident claims in two major ways.

  • More severe injuries: There is very little to protect a motorcyclist in the event of a crash. Bikers often suffer extremely serious injuries, including biker head injuries, spinal cord injuries, fractures, abrasions (road rash) and internal injuries.
  • Prejudice against motorcyclists: Jurors may hold negative stereotypes about bikers. Our experienced personal injury lawyers know how to overcome these mistaken assumptions. Most motorcyclists are not risk-taking rebels, but average people who enjoy the freedom and excitement that a motorcycle provides.

For both of these reasons, it is important to be represented by an experienced personal injury attorney protecting your interests. To arrange a free initial consultation with one of our Cleveland motorcycle accident lawyers, please contact Russo, Rosalina & Co., LPA.
