Unfortunately, when you are riding you are more subject to catastrophic injuries without the protection of an automobile surrounding you. Motorcycle injuries are further complicated because the medical bills are not handled the same way they are for automobile accidents, which are subject to PIP coverage.

Premise Liability – Slip and Falls / Trip and Falls
Let’s face it, sometimes you need to fall down in order to pick yourself up and succeed. But when we aren’t talking about metaphors, falling down is just plain embarrassing. But when the fall down isn’t your fault, and caused by someone else’s negligence, this makes it even worse. Compounding the problem are the injuries that result from this fall down. Property owners are responsible for keeping their premises safe from dangers. Proving a claim against a property owner requires certain proofs concerning notice and knowledge about the dangerous condition, and if certain proofs are not met, you will not be successful in your claim for your injuries. If you slip or trip and fall and suffer an injury, contact our office so that you can have an experienced injury attorney guide you.
