Motorcycle Hit By Car Injury Lawyers


Our lawyers represent many people injured in motorcycle accidents. In most cases, a negligent automobile driver failed to see the motorcycle on the road. Unfortunately, when a car hits a motorcycle, the injuries to the rider are often serious. The U.S. Department of Transportation recently declared May Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month.

The Department notes that in 2019, there were 5,014 motorcyclists killed in traffic crashes. That was a decrease from 2018 (5,038). Motorcycle deaths accounted for 14% of the total highway fatalities that year. Just a momentary lapse in a vehicle driver’s awareness can result in the death of an unseen motorcyclist. In addition, of course, there are many serious injury cases every year.

At the Rochlin Law Firm, our attorneys take motorcycle injury cases very seriously. In most cases, the car driver is not paying attention to the road. Of course, it is no excuse that the car ‘did not see the motorcycle.’ Motorcycles are allowed to be on the road and cars need to watch out for them. Every driver is responsible to watch the road and avoid accidents. However, when the driver of a car fails that responsibility, they must be held accountable.


There is a reason auto insurance is required in Minnesota. Mistakes happen and people are injured. When a car hits a motorcycle, there are often significant medical bills. Further, the motorcycle rider may be out of work and lose income. In many cases, the motorcycle rider is unable to take care of their household duties or activities of daily living. All these things require compensation. In addition, the motorcycle accident victim is entitled to pain and suffering compensation for what they must go through now and in the future.

If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident after being hit by a car or truck, call us for a free consultation. A top motorcycle accident lawyer will answer your questions and protect your rights. The primary focus of our attorneys is to make sure you get the compensation you need and are entitled to. In fact, we never charge anything unless you receive compensation.
