We are motorcycle attorneys. Motorcycle accidents can often lead to severe and sometimes fatal injuries. If you or a loved one were in a motorcycle accident, contact an experienced motorcycle attorney immediately.

- There were over 88,000 motorcycle accidents in the United States in 2015
- Almost 5,000 people died in 2015 in motorcycle accidents, an 8.3% increase over 2014

There are many things you can do to protect yourself as a rider. Always make sure to take a motorcycle safety class or review relevant safety information. Make sure to wear a helmet. But even if you do everything right, riders and their passengers are seriously injured every year by the negligence and misconduct of others. Negligent drivers may be impaired or distracted, and fail to yield or see you. Negligent construction companies may leave debris in the road or construct dangerous roadways. And in some cases, the motorcycle itself may be defective, whether through a manufacturing error or service repair error. In any case, the injuries can be severe, including road rash, broken bones and fractures, brain injuries, and, in some cases, death.
Because of the seriousness of these accidents, you need a serious and experienced lawyer. We at the Ellis Law Group, PLLC have experience representing victims of serious motorcycle accidents. We help you determine what caused your accident, and we then pursue the responsible parties to get you the compensation you deserve. We work with the insurance companies on your behalf to get your claim processed, and are prepared to litigate the case if we cannot get the case resolved. And we make sure that you get compensated for all the damages to which you are entitled, including your medical bills and future medical care, lost wages, impairment on your ability to earn money, pain and suffering, and compensation for the loss of consortium of your spouse or loved one.
