The experienced personal injury lawyers at Proner & Proner have an important piece of advice for anyone injured in a motorcycle accident. We want you to focus on your health. Serious injuries and lifelong complications arise from motorcycle crashes. It’s important that you take care of yourself, or a loved one injured in a crash, and allow a seasoned motorcycle injury lawyer to handle the financial issues associated with your accident.

It’s not unusual for accident victims to be approached by insurance claims adjusters who want to write a check and make you go away. And, the offer might be tempting. After all, medical bills and lost wages during recuperation can add up fast. However, it is important not to accept a low settlement offer from an insurance claims adjuster until you, your doctor and your attorney believe that is in your best interest.

Here are some common types of injuries that people suffer after crashes:

Back and Neck Injuries – Serious injuries lead to chronic pain and require lengthy recuperation
Head Injuries – Ranging from minor concussions to vegetative state.
Spinal Cord Injuries– Injuries vary in severity depending on the location of the injury on the spine
Orthopedic Injuries – Including broken arms, legs, wrists, elbows, knees, hips and ankles
Wrist Injuries – Sometimes requiring surgery and lengthy recuperation
Amputation Injuries – Often requiring an accident victim to wear a prosthetic
Road Rash – A painful skin injury that may require skin grafts and a risk of infection
Fatal Injuries – Sometimes resulting in death on impact or, in other cases, causing death soon after an accident.
The severity of your injury may not be apparent at the time of the accident. Some injuries, such as herniated disks in the backbone, grow more painful over time. For this reason, it is very important to have thorough medical examinations on the day of the accident and in the following days and weeks as your doctor recommends and as symptoms warrant.

Proner & Proner welcomes inquiries from injured motorcyclists nationwide. Our motorcycle accident lawyers have helped many injury victims throughout the United States obtain compensation.


The statistics are in – and they are sobering. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcyclists are five times more likely to be seriously injured in an accident than those in car crashes. Further, bikers are 26 times more likely to die in a crash than people in a car accident. There are many reasons why motorcycle accidents occur and many of them involve the driver of the other vehicle simply “not seeing” the biker.

Unfortunately, regardless of the reasons motorcycle accidents happen, most have one thing in common. The injuries sustained by a surviving biker can be very severe and impact them for the rest of their lives.

If you or someone you love has been injured in a motorcycle accident, or they’ve been the victim of wrongful death following a bike crash, contact the experienced motorcycle accident lawyers at Proner & Proner. We fight for the rights of bikers injured in accidents throughout the United States. Put our experienced to work for you.


There is no strictly formulaic approach to motorcycle accident claims at the law offices of Proner & Proner. We represent injured motorcyclists nationwide, considering every case to be as unique as the parties and circumstances involved. For best results after a motorcycle accident, we examine all known facts with an open mind until we can confidently draw conclusions and develop theories of liability.

The most common types of bike crashes we see include:

  • Left Turn Motorcycle Accidents
  • Accidents at Intersections
  • Red Light Accidents
  • Lane Splitting
  • Construction and Road Hazards
  • Rear End Motorcycle Accidents
  • Side Impact Motorcycle Accidents


As we have investigated the causes of our clients’ motorcycle accidents over the years, certain themes have emerged. Over time, our motorcycle accident lawyers have discovered that, in general, many motorcycle crashes occur for reasons such as these:

The Driver of the Other Vehicle Didn’t See the Motorcycle: This, unfortunately, is a common cause of accidents. Bikes are smaller and easily hidden in blind spots.

Failure to Yield: The driver of a car, truck or bus — or another motorcycle rider — fails to yield to our client at highway entrance and exit ramps; at entrances and exits to gas stations, parking lots and parking garages; on city streets, county roads and state highways — when changing lanes, turning left or approaching intersections controlled by red lights or stop signs. After an accident, these drivers often claim that they had not seen the motorcycle before the crash.

Distracted Driving: Drivers of cars, trucks and buses are distracted while driving, either talking on cell phones, texting or referring to GPS (global positioning system) devices.

Roadway Hazards: Weather and roadway conditions can play a significant role in how an accident occurs

Merchandise: Defective motorcycle components and defective helmets can cause serious crashes


When you call Proner & Proner, rest assured our experienced motorcycle accident lawyers will listen compassionately and explain how we will proceed in pursuing maximum compensation for your injuries.

Our lawyers frequently field questions from bikers who are not certain whether the other driver was at fault or not. We are happy to answer these questions and to take action against the other driver if he or she was at fault.

The answer to this question may depend on the state where the accident took place. For example, one of the most common motorcycle accident scenarios involves a car pulling over to the right side of the road as if about to take a right turn. A motorcycle rider begins to pass the car on the left, only to be hit by the car when the car veers back into the lane and continues driving forward. In most states, it is illegal for two vehicles to share the same lane. When the biker drove forward, both drivers may have been breaking this law, meaning both are partially at fault. So who is to blame? Perhaps both drivers. In some states, there is a comparative negligence rule. The question needs to be asked, how much was each party at fault? Perhaps the driver of the car was more at fault, and thus would be liable. Perhaps not.

We carefully review every case to determine and prove fault, building a strategy designed to maximize compensation for the victim of motorcycle injuries.

There is nothing like a motorcycle ride on a nice spring day.  Still, you need to be careful to avoid accidents. Here some easy steps that you can take to avoid a season-ending collision.

First of all ride like your invisible. You might think that the driver the car sees you but oftentimes they make that left turn right into your path. If you ride assuming that they can’t see because you’re invisible, you tend to take more protective action to avoid collisions. So protect your own skin.

When you get to an intersection and you see that car signaling for the left turn, slow down, take your hands off the throttle, make sure your foot is over the brake, and be prepared to make an emergency stop.  Same thing when you see a car approaching a stop sign at an intersection where you don’t have the stop sign.  The fact that you had the right-of-way will help you in a lawsuit but it’s not going to help you heal any faster from your hospital bed.

Another consideration take is to practice your emergency stop. Make sure you know where the horn is on your left thumb.  Make sure you use both brakes when you stop. Riders that use too much rear brake are losing 70% of the stopping power that the front brake provides.

Before you go out, make sure all your lights and directional signals are working. Make sure your tires have good tread. Make sure your brakes provide good stopping and are not “spongy”.

If you do find you’ve been in an accident, go to get hospital to check out all of your body. The adrenaline that might be pumping after motorcycle accident could mask some of your injuries. After you stop at the hospital get in touch with an experienced attorney. If you would like a free consultation with us we are always available.

What not to do after a motorcycle accident

The wrong move can make it extremely difficult to get the compensation you deserve. Insurance companies are looking for opportunities to limit or deny you compensation. We encourage you not to give them any.

  • Do not make a statement to or sign anything given to you by an insurance agent. Do not even talk to an insurance agent. When you discuss the accident to the police, be very straightforward and limit your discussion to the facts.
  • Do not apologize to or argue with the other driver. Limit your discussion with the other driver to an exchange of information. Do not sign anything.
  • Do not get your bike repaired. Doing so before an attorney has had a chance to have the bike properly inspected and photographed is essentially erasing one of the most important pieces of evidence in your case.
