Standing Up For The Rights Of Injured Riders

Motorcyclists face challenges every time they ride, from pavement and weather conditions to other vehicles sharing the road. Motorcyclists also face many challenges in pursuing compensation for accidents. The injuries are worse, the insurance is complicated and there is a tendency to assume the rider was at fault.
The Law Offices of Harris & Literski has successfully advocated for motorcycle accident victims injured in collisions with cars and trucks. Our personal injury lawyers investigate thoroughly to reveal the other driver’s negligence, and we work with the family and medical professionals to determine future needs and fair compensation.
We handle motorcycle injury cases in Livingston County and southeast Michigan, from accidents on I-96 and Highway 23 to crashes on city streets and rural roads. We also represent motorcyclists from other states injured while traveling through the Brighton area. Contact us immediately to protect your rights.

Are You Being Blamed For Your Motorcycle Crash?

There is still a stigma about “bikers.” The other driver and bystanders will often say a motorcycle operator was speeding or reckless. Yet we know that most riders are law-abiding and cautious in traffic because their lives depend on driving defensively. If necessary, we will engage professional investigators and accident reconstruction experts to show fault by the automobile driver such as:
  • Failing to yield when turning
  • Running a traffic light or stop sign
  • Pulling out in front of a cycle
  • Changing lanes without looking
  • Tailgating or driving too fast
  • Being distracted by a cellphone

Pursuing Maximum Compensation For Severe Injuries

Even with a helmet and leathers, motorcycle riders and passengers are vulnerable to serious injuries, including head trauma, back and neck injuries, broken bones, and serious lacerations and road rash. We work closely with clients to document the hardships of the recovery process and appropriate damages, including past and future medical care, lost wages and projected earnings, any permanent disability, and pain and suffering.
AV-rated* attorney John Harris leads our personal injury team, drawing on 30-plus years of experience to stand up to the insurance companies on your behalf. He is prepared to go to trial if that’s what it takes to ensure that you are compensated.
