Glendale Motorcycle Accident Attorney
In collisions with passenger or commercial vehicles, motorcyclists almost always suffer the most serious injuries. Even in accidents where a collision doesn’t take place, a rider may be forced to avoid a vehicle and be thrown from their motorcycle, potentially causing serious road rash, friction burns and fractures.
If you or a loved one have been injured in a motorcycle accident due to the actions of another driver, you may be eligible for financial compensation. At The Entrekin Law Firm, our Glendale motorcycle accident attorneys can help. Call today for a free and confidential case evaluation.

Compensation Includes Medical Bills Plus Lost Wages and Earnings Potential
Being injured in a motorcycle accident caused by someone or something else entitles you to compensation to cover all costs and damages associated with your accident. The lawyers at The Entrekin Law Firm are ready to assist you with a motorcycle or car accident claim in Glendale.
The damages available for your motorcycle accident generally include:
- Emergency room bills
- Vehicle repair and/or replacement
- Long-term medical expenses, such as hospitalization, physical therapy, and other treatments
- Lost wages and work benefits
- Lost earnings potential
- Pain and suffering
Collecting on your damages requires the assembly of evidence, drafting of a claim, timely filing of the claim, and the successful negotiation of a settlement or victory in court. If your loved one has been in a motorcycle accident and cannot bring their own claim, you may be able to do so on their behalf.
Losing Family to a Motorcycle Accident Can Entitle You to a Wrongful Death Claim
Motorcycle accidents can be fatal, and the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration notes that motorcyclists continue to be overrepresented in fatal traffic crashes. If you have lost a loved one to a motorcycle accident, you may be able to collect compensation for their lost financial and emotional contribution to your household through what is known as a wrongful death action.
Persons that can bring a wrongful death action, depending upon the circumstances, include:
- The surviving spouse of the deceased
- The surviving child/children of the deceased
- The surviving parent/s of the deceased
- A person legally appointed to represent the estate of the deceased
When you have lost a loved one due to a tragic accident like a motorcycle accident, you may be able to collect compensation to cover:
- The lost earnings contribution of your loved one to your household from the time of their accident through the remainder of their working life
- Any related medical bills and funeral expenses
- Compensation for the lost emotional contribution of your loved one to your household
Given the high level of fatalities associated with motorcycle accidents, it is important that surviving family members know their rights. While no amount of compensation can bring back your loved one, receiving full damages can lessen the negative financial impact of your loss upon your household.
