The attorneys of The Attkisson Law Firm, LLC, appreciate the thrill and convenience of traveling by motorcycle. We also understand the risk involved, as motorcycles offer little protection to riders when they are up against a car or truck.
When other drivers in Ohio put motorcyclists in harm's way, our experienced personal injury lawyers are there, ready to seek justice. We're known as heavy hitters for a reason — because we fight for our clients' best interests using decades of trial experience, a passion for justice and a drive to do right by accident victims.

When motorcycle accidents happen, it's not uncommon for people — including insurance adjusters — to automatically assume the rider was the one who was negligent. This stereotype of a reckless and aggressive biker is hard to shake, even if it isn't true for most motorcyclists in Dayton and elsewhere in Ohio.
Wrongfully accusing riders of causing accidents they were involved in only hurts victims and takes the blame away from the other driver, who may be more at fault than the rider. In many cases, motorcycle accidents are actually caused by:
Distracted drivers — including cellphone use, eating and talking to other passengers
Failure to check blind spots
Failure to yield right of way
Failure to use signals when changing lanes
Sudden lane switching
Drifting into a nearby lane
Drunk or fatigued driving
As the old saying goes, "never judge a book by its cover." The same is true for motorcyclists who we believe should be assessed at fault only based on the facts of the case, not by a stereotype. It's injustices like this that our attorneys fight back against when we stand up for accident victims.
Our lawyers know that motorcycle accidents can result in both minor and major injuries. The lack of protections provided by motorcycles puts riders at risk of suffering catastrophic injuries. The cost associated with motorcycle injuries can be overwhelming for victims.
We have a history of fighting for victims who have suffered a variety of injuries, including:
Some motorcycle accidents may result in the wrongful death of a motorcycle rider. We advocate just as strongly for families of victims as we do for victims themselves because we believe in the pursuit of just and fair compensation.
Whether you were able to walk away from your motorcycle accident or are grieving the loss of a loved one killed in a collision with another vehicle, the attorneys at The Attkisson Law Firm, LLC, are ready to hold the negligent driver accountable for what has happened.
