Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Mr. Chanfrau tells us about motorcycle accidents and how his law firm can help you recover compensation for damages. He explains that motorcycle laws are different than regular car accident laws. The personal attention and compassion provided by Mr. Chanfrau and his associates have earned them a reputation of excellence.

Conducting an Investigation in a Motorcycle Accident Case

Bikers are especially vulnerable on the road. They have no metal shell surrounding and shielding them from external hazards, or seat belts and airbags to protect them in the event of a collision. Motorcyclists are totally exposed and incredibly vulnerable to injury and death in any motor vehicle accident – even low-speed collisions. This vulnerability is what motivates us to protect the rights of motorcyclists. We recognize that as a biker, you have the same rights and privileges on the road as anyone else. Rest assured, we will protect those rights and fight on your behalf.

In order to file a claim, we will first conduct a thorough investigation of your accident. Though investigations will likely be conducted by law enforcement officials and the respective parties' insurance companies, we believe it is important to have an unbiased and objective investigation from a third-party. As legal professionals, we can provide this service. Should there be any conflict or disagreement between the involved parties, our investigation can help establish the true cause of the accident.

Working with accident reconstruction experts, forensics experts, law enforcement officials, and witnesses, we can paint an accurate picture of the circumstances surrounding your accident and establish a definitive cause. If it is established through police records or other means that a motorist was under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the accident, then negligence can be shown and a personal injury claim can be filed for damages.

Filing a Claim for Damages

We stress to our clients that damages can be awarded for both quantitative and qualitative loss, as many people fail to realize the scope of damages that they may be entitled to. As legal professionals, it is our duty to educate our clients so that they are able to make informed decisions regarding their rights.

In the event of a motorcycle accident, you or a loved may be entitled to damages for:

Pain and Suffering

A motorcycle accident can easily lead to severe injury or wrongful death. This alone can be incredibly trying for a family. However, knowing that the accident was caused by someone's gross negligence, and thus, was completely preventable, can compound the emotional distress that a family feels. We believe strongly that you deserve compensation for such pain and suffering, and will work diligently to maximize your recovery.

Medical Expenses

Many victims in motorcycle accidents believe that their only recourse for compensation are those related to property damage and immediate medical expenses. Though victims are entitled to compensation for these losses, the medical expenses that can be reimbursed aren't limited to those strictly related to the post-accident surgery. Future related medical expenses can be covered too.


In addition to related medical expenses, victims may be able to receive damages for rehabilitation and recovery expenses. This may include physical therapy, speech therapy, emotional therapy, and other rehabilitative services. Being involved in a motorcycle accident can have a significant impact on your quality of life, and often results in an extensive and long-term recovery. Unfortunately, most motorcyclists do not typically recover quickly following a collision with another vehicle.

Loss of Wages

If you are out of work for an extended period of time, suffer a loss of earning capacity as a result of your accident, or are left unable to work due to a permanent disability, our team will commit ourselves to obtaining the maximum amount of damages possible in order to provide you and your family with the financial security you deserve. Rest assured, at Chanfrau & Chanfrau, we have your best interests in mind.
