Virginia Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Bilingual Injury Attorneys Helping Motorcycle Accident Victims in Virginia

Staggering medical bills, debilitating injuries, lost income—motorcyclists often suffer monumental hardship in the wake of an accident. At The Barrera Law Firm, PLLC, our attorneys have helped thousands of injured victims over our 75+ years of combined experience. For those who are facing difficulty recovering fair compensation after an accident, we want to do the same for you.

If you have recently been injured in a motorcycle accident caused by someone else, you may be entitled to compensation for your financial and emotional damages. The insurance adjuster on your case isn’t likely to offer you a fair settlement, though they’ll pull out all the stops to seem generous. Don't sign away your right to a full financial settlement before speaking with an attorney. In fact, don’t even talk to the insurer if you can help it. Call our team instead to get started with your personalized legal strategy.

We serve motorcycle accident victims in Virginia and beyond. Call us at (571) 290-2390 to schedule a free consultation if you’re looking for help.

Why Motorcycle Accidents Are So Dangerous

Even more than car accident victims, those who are injured in motorcycle accidents often need legal help to pursue fair settlements. Riding a motorcycle is, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), nearly 27 times more dangerous than driving. And, that statistic is only looking at fatalities per mile traveled. Motorcyclists are also much more likely to face injury if they’re in a crash. In fact, only 2 of 10 motorcyclists are able to walk away from an accident.

The reason for this is obvious: While drivers are surrounded by safety devices like seatbelts and airbags, motorcyclists only have their helmet and any other protective gear they’re wearing to protect them against injury. Because motorcycles are also smaller and lighter than your average car, riders may be thrown off and/or caught under their bike. This can cause injuries like:

Worst-case scenarios can end with a wrongful death, leaving the victim’s loved ones to try to manage their grief and move forward. After any tragic accident, our team is here to help the accident victims. Not only can we offer a sound legal strategy and advice, but we are also here for you to lean on in your time of need.

Our Strategy Focuses on Your Recovery

After an accident, many injury victims face concerns about how they will pay for their medical bills on top of providing for their families. You have the legal right to pursue compensation from the party or parties who were responsible for your accident. Our motorcycle accident lawyers focus on helping you obtain the financial resources you need to begin the next chapter in your life comfortably. The first thing we do for each client is conduct thorough investigations to determine all of their damages, including those that may be hidden, and identify the liable party. Then, we can help you go through the claims process, advocating for your rights at every step of the way.

In a motorcycle accident claim, you may be able to recover damages including:

  • Medical and healthcare costs, including emergency medical response, tests and evaluations, prescription drugs, surgery, etc.
  • Long-term medical care, including ongoing medical treatments such as cognitive therapy after a traumatic brain injury or physical and occupational therapy after an amputation or spinal cord injury.
  • Lost wages, if your injuries prevent you from being able to work on a short or long-term basis. We will work with experts to determine how a claim or lawsuit should address lost wages and other employment benefits.
  • Pain and suffering, to account for ways the accident has negatively impacted your daily life.
  • Other accident expenses, which we can identify based on your story and injury. These damages include out-of-pocket expenses such as assistive medical devices, vehicle repairs, in-home assistive care, and other accident-related costs.

Free Consultations for Motorcycle Accident Victims

Our firm has found serious motorcyclists to be among the most careful and well-trained drivers on Virginia's roadways. Even so, negative stereotypes about motorcycles persist and, with Virginia's pure contributory fault laws, these misconceptions can damage your potential for a fair settlement or trial outcome. If you are found to hold even 1% of the fault for an accident, you lose the right to recover anything. That’s why it’s essential to speak to a lawyer before an insurance adjuster can get you on the phone and pepper you with leading questions.

The team at The Barrera Law Firm, PLLC understands the unique challenges you will face in your struggle for full compensation. For each client, we strive to build a case that clearly proves why they are entitled to the money they need to pay for all accident-related costs. This means offering proof not only of the damages you’re facing but also of your innocence in the accident. An insurance claim isn’t a process you can afford to concede. While you might not have the energy to deal with the constant negotiations just to get the money you’re legally owed, our team doesn’t give up.

We’ve taken more than 100 cases to trial and we’ll do the same for you if the at-fault party’s insurer refuses to grant your right to compensation. Call our team today to see how we can help if you were involved in a motorcycle accident in Virginia, Maryland, or D.C. We’re available 24/7 to speak with you.
