Phoenix Motorcycle Accident Attorney
Cruz & Associates cares about the nation’s motorcyclists, and our team of attorneys can help them after an accident. We don’t believe choosing to ride a motorcycle is synonymous with accepting risk of serious injuries. We believe all motor vehicle operators have a right to the road and all deserve respect and care from other drivers. We know how to litigate these types of cases, protect motorcyclists’ rights, and fight for fair compensation in Phoenix and throughout the state of Arizona.
How Can a Motorcycle Accident Attorney Help?
Though Arizona law allows civil claimants to represent themselves, motorcycle accident victims should know this is a huge gamble. We don’t just recommend hiring a lawyer because we are lawyers. We recommend it because we’ve seen firsthand how unfair the courts can be toward injured motorcyclists. Issues of comparative negligence, shared fault, and assumed risks almost always arise in these types of cases – and courts tend to side against motorcyclists.
In Arizona, a plaintiff’s negligence does not automatically prevent damage recovery. Even if the other party successfully shows you are partially responsible for the accident, you could still be eligible for compensation. It’s important, however, to have an attorney who can argue on your behalf and maximize the other party’s percentage of fault. The greater the other party’s degree of fault, the greater your compensation. It’s particularly important to count on an attorney for a motorcycle accident case, due to biases that tend to exist against motorcyclists.
Motorcycling might be more dangerous than driving a motor vehicle in many ways, but we certainly don’t believe that means motorcyclists “ask for” their injuries. Just like other drivers, motorcyclists cannot control the actions of others. They cannot always prevent accidents when another driver is distracted, speeding, reckless, or negligent.
