Motorcycle Accident Injury Lawyers in Maine
Our Portland personal injury attorneys help you recover compensation
Motorcycles are popular throughout Maine, and motorcyclists can often be seen on the roads here, especially when the weather is good. An accident can leave motorcyclists seriously injured, however, and the motorcycle accident attorneys at Jabar LaLiberty & Dubord, LLC can help you recover the financial compensation you deserve.
Unlike drivers and passengers in car accidents, motorcyclists have very little protection in an accident – sometimes only a helmet and the clothing they wear. So when a motorcycle accident occurs, a motorcyclist is likely to suffer an injury. In many cases, those injuries are very serious.
Many drivers often think of motorcycles as little more than a nuisance on the road and don’t treat them as they would another vehicle. Many don’t even notice motorcycles that are near them. Too often, this results in a collision. Motorcyclists can be struck directly by a car. Or they can be thrown from their bike onto the ground.
As a result, motorcyclists are at significantly increased risk for injuries to their heads, necks, and backs. Some suffer injuries to the brain or spine. They can suffer broken bones or skin injuries known as road rash. Recovery from these injuries can take months or even years. Some never fully recover and are left with a permanent disability.

The medical expenses you may face after a motorcycle accident can be substantial. You may need surgery, hospitalization, physical therapy, medication and multiple follow-up visits with doctors. The medical expenses can soon become overwhelming. If you’re left unable to work, there is less income coming in to pay the bills.
Getting financial compensation from the negligent party who caused the accident can help you pay medical expenses for the care and rehabilitation that you need, and help you replace lost income. Negligent parties typically deny responsibility for causing the accident and don’t admit to doing anything wrong.
Insurance companies will try to pay you as little as possible. They tend to think of motorcyclists as reckless and irresponsible. As far as they’re concerned, you must have been to blame for the crash somehow. They may make you a settlement offer soon after the crash, but it will fall far short of covering the damages you have suffered.
