Loveland Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
30 Years of Strong Legal Representation for Injury Claims
Most people are aware that motorcycles are some of the most dangerous vehicles on the road. However, due to unfair stigmas about these vehicles and their drivers, many car drivers fail to share the road and give the proper right-of-way. This failure to accommodate for motorcycle drivers can often cause serious injuries and even death for unwary motorcyclists.
At Jorgensen, Brownell & Pepin, P.C., our skilled Loveland motorcycle lawyers know how complex these cases can become. Whether you were a motorcycle driver injured by a car driver’s carelessness, or a driver injured after a crash with a motorcyclist, we can examine the facts of your case and provide you with a solid and strategic legal counsel.
Risks of Injury in Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcyclists are more exposed to the elements than car drivers, so regardless of fault in the accident, they often bear the most violent effects of an accident. The injuries sustained can range in severity, but many of them are classified as catastrophic injuries and can require ongoing medical assistance and treatment.
Some of the most common injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident include:
- Head and neck injuries
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Abdominal injuries
- Internal bleeding
- Amputated limbs
- Broken and fractured arms and legs
- Spinal cord injury
- Paraplegia and tetraplegia
- Wrongful death
What Kind of Compensation Can I Expect?
When filing a personal injury lawsuit after a serious motorcycle accident, your share of the compensation will greatly depend on your level of fault in the accident. Both car drivers and motorcyclists are considered to have the same “duty of care” towards one another on the road, which means both are responsible for following the rules of the road and taking precautions to avoid injury. As long as you were 50% or less at fault for your accident, you may be able to recover damages, although your total compensation will be reduced if you are partially at fault.
Our Loveland personal injury attorneys can help you fight for the following damages:
- Pain and suffering
- Mental and emotional anguish
- Ongoing medical expenses
- Rehabilitative care
- Loss of limbs and bodily functions
- Loss of future wages
- In-home care costs

I would like to give a big thank you to Matthew Crowther and his paralegal, Nicolas Allen, for doing a great job on my case. They settled for more than I expected and were always available when I had questions. I would highly recommend them and would go back to them if needed. Thank you again.
