Any lawsuit stemming from a traffic accident hinges on the question of negligence. Proving liability can be a huge hurdle for motorcyclists, since many people, judges and jurors included, harbor negative preconceptions about motorcyclists.

With more than 200 years of combined experience, our legal team knows how to build a solid case for the maximum level of compensation.
Folks who view the Queen City as quaint or genteel are surprised to learn that motorcycle accidents are increasingly common in Charlotte. And, because motorcycle riders are so exposed, accidents often have serious, even deadly, consequences. According to the N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles, there were 3,893 motorcycle crashes in North Carolina in 2013, of which 154 were fatal and 3,167 caused an injury. This indicates that an injury or death occurred in more than 80 percent of all motorcycle accidents in our state over the course of the year.
If you’ve had a motorcycle accident and are considering a personal injury lawsuit, our Charlotte lawyers can analyze your crash to make a preliminary assessment of fault. We have experience with a wide array of motorcycle accident scenarios, including:
North Carolina is one of the few remaining states with strict contributory negligence law. An injured party who shares even the slightest blame for an accident cannot recover any compensation. North Carolina does require motorcyclists to wear helmets, but failure to do so is not considered contributory negligence in a personal injury case. However, the possibility that a court could rule you ineligible for compensation makes your lawyer’s role even more urgent.
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a motorcycle accident, trust Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban to fight for your maximum recovery. We know how to build a compelling case for the compensation you deserve. Call (888) 351-1038 or contact us online today to schedule a free consultation.
