Your Legal Advocates After A Motorcycle Accident
Although motorcycling is a cost-effective and enjoyable means of travel, as well as a great pastime for many, motorcycle accidents can be tragic for everyone involved.

At Overman & Overman, we are aggressive trial advocates who know how to win. We will fight to get you the money you deserve after a serious motorcycle crash.
Finding The Cause Of The Accident
Motorcycle accidents are like other accidents in one important respect: Very few accidents are actually accidents. There is almost always some kind of cause, some negligence or mistakes that, if avoided, would have prevented the accident.
Motorcycle accidents can result from a range of circumstances, including:
- Left-turn accidents: These are by far the most prevalent types of motorcycle accidents, occurring when a car or another vehicle taking a left-hand turn fails to see the motorcycle.
- Dangerous road conditions: Slippery roads, poor weather, construction and more can all lead to hazards for motorcyclists.
- Reckless habits or behaviors: As with any type of motor vehicle accident, drunk or impaired driving, distracted driving, reckless driving, speeding and more are all common causes of crashes.
Our attorneys work diligently to reconstruct the accident scene, determine the cause of the accident and find out who is at fault. We will fight diligently to get you the best compensation award we can, whether that is through settlement negotiations or through litigation.
After a serious motorcycle accident, the best first step is to talk with a lawyer you can trust about how to proceed. We will walk you through the entire process.
