What Fees Do You Charge?
We do not believe that it is fair that you would have to pay out-of-pocket for an attorney after you have been involved in a motorcycle accident. Instead, we will work on a contingency fee basis, which means that we do not get paid unless and until you win! Our fee is a percentage of the settlement or verdict that we obtain for you.
Should I Get A Lawyer For A Motorcycle Accident?
If you have been involved in an accident, aside from seeking medical attention, speaking with a well qualified attorney should be the first thing that you do. At McKenna Law, we will immediately perform an investigation to ensure that we obtain and preserve all relevant evidence that you will need in your pursuit of justice. Without consulting with an attorney after a motorcycle accident, you may lose out on securing that one piece of evidence that is crucial to proving your case. Do not delay in setting up a consultation immediately after an accident, as many pieces of evidence are time sensitive and can be lost for good.
It is also very important to speak with an attorney before speaking to the relevant insurance companies. These profit-oriented insurance companies can twist your words and utilize anything that you say against you. Remember, these are seasoned professionals at this. Do not fall for their tricks and do not agree to a recorded statement prior to speaking with an attorney.
We understand that following an accident many people are bed-ridden or confined to a hospital bed- that is why we offer free over-the phone consultations as well as offering to come to you, whether at the hospital or at your home. Consulting with an attorney after an accident should not be difficult, that is why we promise a quick response and are willing to come to you.
Will My Case Go To Trial?
At McKenna Law, we take great pride in our ability to receive justice for our injured clients, without having to have our clients suffer from the emotional distress, risk, and long delays that often accompanies going to court and having a trial. While going to court is sometimes inevitable, we focus our initial efforts into finding a fair result for our injured clients, without having to enter litigation. When we file suit, our case preparation is so thorough and aggressive, in a great majority of cases the insurance company ultimately relents and settles. We are able to obtain these results through our efforts of collecting all of the relevant evidence and presenting your matter to the insurance companies in the most effective and powerful ways possible. It should be noted that every case is different, but we are proud to consistently have to go to trial in less than 10% of our accident cases and we credit this to our aggressive pursuit of just compensation for our injured clients.
There are many technical reasons for motorcycle accidents, and we have studied nearly every single major scientific study. All have come to the same conclusion, in the majority of cases the motorcyclist was not at fault. Primary causes include inattention or distracted driving coupled with the reduced profile of a motorcycle compared to other vehicles.
What Can A Lawyer Do For A Motorcycle Accident Case?
At McKenna Law, the first step is to ensure that you are educated about all of your legal rights so that you may make an informed and educated decision. Immediately upon learning of the accident, we will start to collect and preserve all potential evidence that we may need to prove your case. That evidence might range from collecting the body camera footage of the responding police officers, to checking the scene of the accident for potential video from surveillance cameras. We search for potential witnesses and retain expert witnesses if needed, such as accident reconstruction engineers. We also coordinate and speed up the process of getting your vehicle repaired, or if deemed a total loss, ensuring that you receive full and fair compensation for the value of your vehicle.
We also ensure that you are provided medical coverage, when available, to have your medical bills paid for. It is simply not right to have to deal with unpaid medical bills following an accident that you did not cause!
Our next step is to present all of the information and evidence that we have collected to the responsible insurance company and demand proper compensation for our clients. If the insurance company fails to provide just compensation to our clients, we file suit on our client’s behalf and pursue the justice our clients deserve through the court system.
Despite the countless hours spent on investigating the accident and fighting for justice, we perform all of this work on a contingency fee basis- meaning no upfront fees and we do not get paid unless you win.

Who Is At Fault In Most Motorcycle Accidents? How Is Fault Proven?
The facts and evidence should always determine who is at fault for an accident and that is why it is extremely important to consult with a lawyer as early as possible. The biased and profit-oriented insurance companies should certainly not be the ones determining who is at a fault for an accident. These insurance companies have one goal: profits.
While we understand that police officers try their best in attempting to decide who is at fault for an accident, many times they are simply wrong. The responding police officers rarely ever actually observe the accident and oftentimes rely on the statements of individuals who are willing to lie to avoid fault. Police officers are sometimes inexperienced and many times have very little training in accident reconstruction.
It becomes crucial to retain a qualified attorney as soon as possible so that the necessary evidence can be obtained and preserved to prove who was at fault for the accident. At McKenna Law, we immediately investigate an accident in order to obtain all of the crucial evidence that we will need to pursue justice. Oftentimes, when there is a dispute as to who is at fault for an accident, we will retain an accident reconstruction engineer who will utilize the latest advancements in technology to prove who was at fault for the accident through the use of math and science. Utilizing our great network of experts, we rely on experts who are leaders in their industry, because you deserve only the best when it comes to getting justice.
