Compensation for Motorcycle Injury or Fatality

bike-photoIn the wake of a serious motorcycle accident, it is common for people to assume that the motorcyclist was “asking for it.” You need a lawyer who can overcome that bias and show that, in fact, the driver of the car was the one who was reckless or careless.

The personal injury practice of Michael K. Bush and John C. Bush excels at revealing the true cause of motorcycle crashes and detailing the medical, economic and personal impact on the victim and the family. Our strong record of results includes numerous recoveries for motorcycle accidents.

Iowa Motorcycle Crash Attorneys

Michael K. Bush and John C. Bush are two of the most experienced trial lawyers in eastern Iowa. Michael, a former prosecutor and former insurance defense lawyer,  has spent the last 30 years advocating for victims of serious accidents. He has had particular success with cases of catastrophic injury and wrongful death, which are all too common when motorcycles tangle with automobiles.

One of the first barriers is establishing liability. The driver and witnesses often maintain that the motorcyclist was speeding or weaving through traffic or “came out of nowhere.” The police report often reflects this false reality.

We have the knowledge and resources to conduct our own investigation and confront the bias head-on. We work hard to convince the jury or the insurance adjuster that the car or truck driver was at fault in:

  • Turning left at an intersection
  • Tailgating or aggressive driving
  • Switching lanes or passing
  • Pulling out into oncoming traffic
  • Talking or texting on a cellphone
  • Other distracted driving or traffic violations

Quad Cities Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

We know that operators and passengers on motorcycles commonly suffer major injuries, including traumatic brain injury, spinal cord damage, back and neck injuries, broken limbs, serious lacerations or road rash. Our goal is to secure comprehensive damages for medical care, medical equipment, lost income, permanent disability and substantial pain and suffering.

We are also knowledgeable about the unique insurance issues. Very commonly, the other driver is not insured or the losses from the massive injuries exceed the negligent driver’s liability coverage and we end up litigating under the motorcyclist’s own uninsured/underinsured motorist policy.
