If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, please contact the Law Office of Noël M. Ferris in Sacramento, California, for experienced legal representation. With more than 30 years of legal experience, she has the knowledge and resources required to achieve positive results in challenging motorcycle accident claims.
Making a Difference in the Lives of Injured Bikers
Over the years, attorney Ferris has represented people who have sustained horrific injuries in motorcycle accidents. A recent client was injured when a car driven by a retired teacher turned left in front of him.
The impact broke every single bone on the left side of his body, from his eye socket and jaw to his leg and foot. Ms. Ferris obtained $1.5 million in compensation for the damages her client sustained.
One of the challenges of motorcycle accident cases is the negative opinion many jury members have of bikers. Ms. Ferris takes the time to explain to juries that today, a motorcyclist is just as likely to be your next door neighbor as a rebel without a cause. In fact, more people age 40 and older are riding motorcycles and getting injured in motorcycle accidents.
It can be challenging to find adequate insurance to cover the damages caused by a motorcycle accident. If you were hit by an uninsured motorist, for example, Ms. Ferris will look to your own insurance policy's uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage.
