who is responsible for my motorcycle accident injuries?

If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident as the result of another driver's negligence, you can seek compensation from the insurance carrier of the driver at fault. Should the insurance coverage of the at-fault driver be insufficient to cover your damages, you may be able to seek further compensation from your own uninsured or underinsured motorist insurance coverage. In addition, your injuries may be linked faulty safety equipment, such as a weak helmet, defective aftermarket products and poor roadway markings.

Whatever the situation was that led to your auto accident, our team will work tirelessly to uncover the cause of the accident so that you can recover from all potential sources of compensation.

I had someone run into the back of my car in February of 2020. I called Laureti Law Firm following my accident. They were very professional, always giving me updates, explained every step involved, and I was very satisfied with settlement! I highly would recommend Laureti Law to all the people I know!

Tony was the best ever. He was responsive and would answer any questions I had right away. I have had experiences with lawyers who would act like you were bothering them when you had questions. He made me feel like he was treating my case like it was his most important case. Not one complaint and I tell anyone who asks if I know an Attorney about Tony. Thank you again.
