As any biker knows, there is nothing quite as thrilling or liberating as riding down the open road on a motorcycle. Personal injury attorney Stephen G. Charpentier understands this better than the average lawyer because he is a devoted rider, himself. This is why he is so passionate about representing the rights of his fellow bikers who have been injured in motorcycle accidents through no fault of their own.
Unfortunately, even the most experienced biker wearing the state of the art in protective gear are still highly susceptible to injuries or even death when there is debris in the road. Debris that might be a nuisance to cars and trucks can be deadly to motorcyclists. At the Charpentier Law Firm in Melbourne, cases involving motorcycle accidents and road debris are tried using all of the resources at our disposal, including the unique insight that Mr. Charpentier has into such cases due to his own experience with motorcycles. As an injured biker, or a family that has lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, you can bet that Mr. Charpentier and his team will present the strongest case possible on your behalf.
Bikers have rights. At the Charpentier Law Firm, we know precisely how to assert and protect those rights and to win even the most complex and challenging motorcycle accident cases.
The Complexity of Cases Involving Road Debris
Cases arising from single vehicle motorcycle accidents, including those involving debris in the road, are generally more complex than cases arising from multiple vehicle motorcycle accidents. This is because, unlike multiple vehicle accident cases, it is more difficult to establish and provide evidence of liability when there is not another driver involved. This is why you should entrust such a case only to an attorney with extensive experience and a history of success in handling cases involving motorcycle accidents caused by debris in the road, such as Mr. Charpentier.
In addition to being an experienced lawyer and biker, Mr. Charpentier has extraordinary skill in investigating and reconstructing single-vehicle motorcycle accidents. He is able to determine which party or parties are liable for the injuries sustained by the biker by assessing multiple factors, including the location of the accident. The location of the accident plays a vital role in pursuing litigation, as he can identify which government entity or third party is responsible for maintaining the road and keeping it free from hazardous debris.
Taking legal action against governmental bodies is a tricky matter; however, it can be done successfully as long as a case is meticulously prepared and presented. Mr. Charpentier will work to collect evidence showing that the debris in the road should and could have been cleared in a timely fashion, preventing possible accidents, if the responsible party or parties had responded appropriately. While government entities do enjoy certain protections under the law, they are not exempt from justice if it can be proven that they behaved negligently.
