Motorcycle Attorney

I started riding in 1994. First bike was a “Fatboy”, and at one point, I thought I would need a bigger engine to pull all the chrome I had added on. A Street Glide followed, and on to a Triumph Rocket Touring III; in-line 3-cylinder, water-cooled, largest production engine made in the world with tremendous torque and acceleration with a glove-smooth ride. Now that is a ride. We traveled on long road trips to Wyoming, Tennessee and the “Dragon’s Tail”, the Blue Ridge Mountains, South Carolina, Kansas City, St. Louis, and all around our Great State of Michigan.

That freedom from a bike can only be explained by riding a bike. And I didn’t even start riding for a thrill, although I confess it did play a role. I wanted something to share with my son. So, I bought a couple of Softails, and my son and I headed out to the South Dakota – Wyoming border. Our goal was to make it to Sturgis and see the sites, and ride, ride, ride. I-80 is remarkable for nothing else if not for the way it was laid out, heading directly west into the setting summer sun. With cornfields on both sides of the highway for endless miles, crop dusters swooping down, and of course, the fertilizer, the road seemed  never to end. Monkey Butt? Of course! And we were saved only by an Air-Rider cushion. And it became one of the most memorable trips for me and my son.

But while I have such great memories and pride in riding, I understand the dangers all too well. I have laid my bike down and that was my fault, and I accept that and the steel that still resides in my ankle, even a great lawyer couldn’t help me there. But the greatest dangers to bikers are seldom the biker’s fault; it comes from drivers turning left in front of you, and from behind from those not paying attention or texting, or from those who aren’t looking for you. I have handled cases for bikers wiped out by drunk drivers, for bikers critically injured by a driver who entered the road even though he couldn’t see around a car that was blocking his view, and represented a young woman biker who “wasn’t driving fast enough” for the trucker behind her when the trucker decided to give her a “nudge” to let her know how he felt. Her injuries were complex and cost that company millions.
