You deserve legal representation after a motorcycle accident

Compared with a passenger vehicle, motorcycles are more efficient and easy to maneuver.

The federal Department of Transportation mandates that every motorcycle helmet sold in America meets Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 218. The standard sets minimum performance levels that helmets have to meet to adequately protect riders' brains and heads in motorcycle accidents.
