Motorcycle Accident Lawyers Providing Representation to Accident Victims in Phoenix
There are thousands of motorcycles in Arizona and throughout the U.S., and they are all entitled to safe travel on public roads. Car drivers may feel that they are driving on roads dedicated to cars, but the Arizona law dictates that all those who are on the road must share the road equally. Whenever this leads to motorcycle accidents, motorists can sue for negligence.
As a result of Arizona’s year-round beautiful weather, it has become a popular place for motorcyclists. The Arizona Department of Transportation reported 127,064 automobile accidents in 2017. Of those accidents, motorcycles were involved in 2,907, and 145 were fatalities.
It’s important to note that there are numerous motorcycle accidents in the State of Arizona every year, and it’s our duty to all those involved and their families to make sure that those responsible are held accountable.
We’re confident to say, that the Moore Injury Law motorcycle accident lawyers have successfully represented Arizonans for years, and our combined 100 years of personal injury experience gives us the strength and knowledge to take your case to a positive conclusion.
Why Do Motorcycle Accidents Happen?
Motorcycle riders make up only a small percentage of the motorists on the roads but are involved in a disproportionate number of crashes and severe injuries.
There are many common causes of motorcycle accidents, including:
- Negligent drivers running red lights.
- Failure to stop at a stop sign at an intersection.
- Drivers improperly making a right-hand turn on a red light.
- Drivers being distracted by phones or texting while driving.
- Not yielding to motorcycles when they have the right-of-way.
- Speeding dangerously fast or driving erratically.
- Improper lane change accidents.
- Drunk driver incidents.
- Automobile drivers under the influence of drugs.
- Distracted driving either by the motorcyclist or the drivers of other vehicles.
- Motorcyclists in the blind spots of truck or car drivers.
- Negligent truck drivers.
- A rear-end crash, for a motorcyclist, can result in serious injury.
- Highway or road defects, foreign objects, potholes, and road hazards.
Due to how motorcycle riders are exposed to the environment, rarely are motorcycle accidents minor and they often involve serious bodily harm. If you’ve suffered broken bones, brain injury, spinal injuries, or any other trauma, you should be properly represented by a legal team that understands the severity of your situation. Motorcycle accidents can lead to significant medical debt, and you need the right team to get your case handled with care.

What Types of Personal Injuries Do Motorcycle Accident Victims Endure?
Regardless of how the motorcycle accident occurred, the motorcycle riders and their passengers are likely to receive serious injuries just because of the nature of how motorcycles work and how exposed their riders are to the elements in the event of a motorcycle crash. Just like how the drivers of other vehicles are put at additional risk when they fail to fasten their seat belts, motorcycle drivers who were not wearing a helmet at the time of their collision are all the more likely to suffer catastrophic injuries, including the potential for brain damage.
Wearing a helmet saves lives, and we encourage you to wear one whenever you ride your bike.
A rider in a motorcycle wreck could be facing any number of potentially life-threatening injuries, including:
- Broken bones, including shattered hips.
- Burns, cuts, and lacerations.
- Emotional distress and post-traumatic stress disorders.
- Facial disfigurement.
- Internal injuries.
- Medical malpractice following a motorcycle accident.
- Neck injuries and back injuries.
- Pain and suffering.
- Permanent or temporary paralysis.
- Road rash.
- Severe bruising.
- Severed limbs.
- Soft-tissue injury.
- Spinal cord injuries.
- Traumatic brain injuries.
- Wrongful death.
Those who suffered motorcycle crash injuries while out on Arizona’s roads should seek medical care without delay. Once you are well enough, contact a motorcycle accident attorney with experience providing representation to clients such as yourself. Your accident injury claim could go a long way towards paying off any need for physical therapy or help support you if you have lost earning capacity because of your bodily injury.
Your motorcycle accident lawyer will examine the circumstances surrounding the accident described in your motorcycle accident claims. If your personal injury lawyer can prove that fault rests with the other vehicle, it may be possible to obtain compensation from them under liability laws. The sooner you seek legal counsel, the better your chances of building a strong motorcycle accident case.
Those who lost a family member to a fatal motorcycle accident may be able to file wrongful death claims with the help of an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer. If you have lost a loved one to an auto accident, then we at Moore Injury Law offer our most sincere condolences. We will speak for your dearly departed when they cannot and pursue the financial compensation that suits your needs best. Motorcycle accident lawyers at our law firm will represent you and yours in your personal injury cases, with an aim to recover damages from both the at-fault party and their insurance company.
What Can Compensation for Your Injuries Help Pay For?
It is very unfortunate that you or anyone else suffered severe injuries in your bike accident. Arizona law holds that you have legal rights to pursue compensation from any at-fault party which had a part to play in your motorcycle crashes.
With a confidential and dedicated attorney-client relationship, you and your motorcycle accident lawyer will examine your personal injury claims. This will include reviewing police reports relating to the motorcycle accident, researching whether the accident was caused by a negligent driver with a history of car accidents, whether any ill-advised driving mistakes were made like unsafe lane changes, whether a road defect led to the motorcycle crash, and ultimately try to prove who was at fault for the bike accident.
With well-constructed motorcycle accident cases, a personal injury lawyer can pursue fair compensation for their clients under Arizona law. If successful, motorcycle victims may recover compensation that will go a long way to paying off costly medical bills, any past or future lost wages while the motorcyclist was out of work with the injury, any property damage, and help pay for any emotional or physical pain and suffering.
Other additional medical bills for things like surgery, x-rays, blood tests, prescription drugs, rehabilitation therapy, CT scans, and MRIs could be covered if a victim recovers proper compensation. Other necessary medical devices like crutches, canes, and wheelchairs shouldn’t need to be paid for by the injured parties, and your settlement should help pay for these if they are needed.
If you’ve suffered injuries in motorcycle collisions with other vehicles, speak to our law firm about your personal injury case. Together, we will attempt to build a winning personal injury lawsuit that can help you get back to living your life again without as much concern about looming medical expenses.

Regardless of the particulars of your motorcycle accident — whether the other driver didn’t have insurance coverage, whether there is some disconnect about who is at fault for the collision, whether any passengers were on the motorcycle with you at the time — it is important that you speak with a legal professional about the validity of your personal injury claim. Proving fault for a motorcycle accident is not always a simple, straightforward sequence of events, and it sometimes comes down to an experienced lawyer making the case clear in a court of law.
Motorcycle crash victims who take their personal injury case to court without an attorney have a lower success rate and also tend to recover less in terms of compensation in settlement negotiations. Our law firm has attorneys on staff with decades of personal legal experience representing clients who have been injured on public and private property. If you or a loved one have suffered serious injuries — or worse, wrongful death — please do not hesitate to contact our legal team to discuss your options about how to proceed with your motorcycle accident case. We offer a free initial case evaluation, and if you do not feel confident about our legal services, you are under no obligation to retain our attorneys as your legal counsel.
At Moore Injury Law, we evaluate your case with diligence and will build a case to better ensure that you receive proper compensation for the accident and any injuries you sustained. Legal representation matters. Please note that there is a two-year statute of limitations for filing motorcycle accident claims in Arizona. Do not delay, thus missing your chance to recover compensation and hold the responsible parties liable for the injuries you’ve suffered.
