Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys have been fighting for motorcyclists’ rights for decades. We are experts in motorcycle accidents and have carefully chosen local, independent counsel across the country to help guide your claim with free legal advice, even if you do not need an attorney. This can maximize your recovery. If you want justice and compensation for your injury, pain and suffering, call today for your free consultation.
Our Louisiana motorcycle lawyers believe there is no place to be a rider quite like the Pelican State. Here in Sportsman’s Paradise we boast some of the most stunning and interesting rides in the U.S. From dank bayous to flashy casinos, shrimp boats to oil tankers, cows to gators, there are contrasts everywhere you look. Blessed with a beautiful variety of motorcycle routes and a longer riding season than many of our northern neighbors, it’s no wonder that Louisiana’s riding community is unusually devoted. Another great perk about travelling Louisiana’s roads is that most great rides end with supremely comforting Southern food and the best jazz music around.
Luckily, severe motorcycle accidents aren’t all that common in Louisiana, for which every biker is thankful. But that good statistic also means that many motorists are not watching for 2-wheels, so every Louisiana rider needs to take extra caution to stay protected on the road. Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys always recommends buying uninsured or underinsured motorist insurance coverage in order to fully prepare for some other ‘loser’s actions. We don’t sell insurance, but we’ve seen too many times how the lack of it can negatively impact an injured rider’s future.
If you are unfortunate enough to have been involved in a motorcycle crash, it is always best to have the expert advice of a qualified motorcycle lawyer to be sure that your damage and injuries are being taken care of fairly, and that any liability you may have is being fairly assessed. Especially if you are in the hospital, and cannot take care of your own business for a while because of your bike accident, a motorcycle law firm will assist with improving your medical situation, take care of your damages, liability, and other legal issues affecting you and your family while you are laid up. Nothing can replace the good advice of a Louisiana motorcycle lawyer from the BAM cooperative/ Russ Brown Motorcycle Attorneys. Call 1-800-4-BIKERS today.
