Motorcycle Accident Attorney
Motorcycles are an exhilarating choice of transportation, especially on the scenic roadways of Salt Lake City, UT.
But their small build and lack of safety features leaves motorcyclists exposed to serious injuries in the event of a motorcycle crash.
If your accident was caused by another party's negligence, motorcycle accident attorney Lynn C. Harris can help you recover compensation...
What to Do in the Moments after a Motorcycle Accident
Stay at the Accident Site
Unless you need urgent medical care, stay at the scene of the accident. If it is safe to do so, move the vehicles and bikes out of traffic.
Call for Help
If you or the other driver are injured, call 9-1-1 to get medical attention. Otherwise, call the local police station to get a report of the accident.
Write down the name, contact information, and insurance details of all other parties involved in the motorcycle accident.
Cellphones make it easier than ever to gather instrumental evidence. Take pictures of the motorcycle crash, accident scene, and any injuries caused by the collision.
Although the adrenaline and emotions you are experiencing can make you apologetic, do not apologize for the accident. This could be interpreted as an admission of fault and hurt the outcome of your case if you decide to pursue it in court.

"Lynn Took Care of Everything"
"My husband was killed suddenly in a car accident...It was a very difficult time for my four daughters and me. We moved and Lynn took care of everything. He kept me up to date on all the details through phone calls and the mail, because I had moved out of state. When decisions needed to be made, he told me what he recommended but let me choose for myself. When the insurance company was trying to get out of paying, Lynn did extra work reconstructing the accident and the variables. We did win the case and were able to get some college funds for the girls and some financial security. Lynn has helped our family tremendously. Lynn really did care about us and has become a dear friend." Valerie H.

Common Injuries Resulting from Motorcycle Accidents
Although body armor and helmets can protect motorcyclists to some extent, they do not completely prevent injuries. The lack of safety features on motorcycles leaves riders susceptible to serious injuries, such as:
- Road rash
- Broken bones
- Hearing and vision loss
- Head injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Permanent disfigurement
Your recovery is our first priority, and we have relationships with the top medical professionals in Salt Lake City and throughout the state to ensure you get the care you need.
Motorcycle Accidents Can Have Deadly Consequences
Unfortunately, a motorcycle accident can also lead to the wrongful death of a loved one. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, motorcyclists are 28 times more likely to be killed in accidents than motor vehicle drivers, who are more protected by the outer shell of their vehicle.
If you have lost a family member due to the negligence or recklessness or another party, our Salt Lake City law injury attorneys can file a wrongful death lawsuit to hold the responsible party accountable for their reckless actions. Compensation can help your family pay for funeral expenses, medical bills, and loss of income left behind after the death of your loved one.
Helping You Get the Best Settlement or Verdict in Court
After a motorcycle accident, the other party's insurance company will typically try to get you to settle the case. But insurance companies are more interested in protecting their own assets than protecting you, so they will typically offer you the lowest compensation possible. In order to recover what you are owed, you need a knowledgeable motorcycle accident lawyer on your side.
Motorcycle accident attorney Lynn C. Harris can negotiate with the insurance company to help you get the settlement you deserve. If he is unable to reach a favorable agreement outside of the courtroom, he will not hesitate to take your case to trial.
Whether we decide to settle your case outside of court or in front of a jury, our goal is to protect your best interests at all times.
Potential Damages Awarded in Personal Injury Cases
Motorcycle accidents can lead to property damage, injuries, and other losses, and you deserve to be compensated by the at-fault party. Either by settlement or verdict, our motorcycle accident lawyer will attempt to recover compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Modifications to your home
- Loss of income
- Pain and suffering
Lynn C. Harris works with expert medical professionals and life care planners who can predict how your injury will affect you in the future to help you secure lifetime assistance, if you need it.
