What Injuries Are Most Commonly Caused by Motorcycle Accidents?

After a motorcycle accident, our clients often find their ability to lead a normal life is limited. Since there is less protection on a motorcycle, accidents frequently result in injures that require extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation. You may be faced with a long recovery period or suffer from permanent injury or disability.

  • “A trusted lawyer who is always there.”

    I have been nothing but completely satisfied and impressed with Chris and his staff at the Slusser Law Firm for years. I have the privilege of working with them on Professional level as a Chairman of a sewer authority who was left with a bad taste in my mouth for lawyers because of our past solicitor who truly was not cost effective and responsible to fact that we as an authority needed to be mindful of our spending in order to keep our rates down for our elderly population of rate payers.

    I interviewed many possible candidates to replace said solicitor and Chris by far stood out to me because of his professionalism and understanding to what we needed and our demographics as an area made up of elderly rate payers living on fixed incomes. I am pleased to say it was one of the best moves we made and pleased to say we as an Authority are going on 8 plus years with Chris and his team guiding us legally and look forward to many more years working with them.

    On a personal level I have now a trusted lawyer who is always there to give guidance in buying property or contract review and Is trusted so much I referred my Father to him for guidance after my Mother passed.

  • “Many friends suggested I contact the Slusser Law Firm. I am glad I did.”

    When I was injured in a motorcycle accident while driving through a construction zone, many friends suggested I contact the Slusser Law Firm. I am glad I did. Attorneys Chris Slusser and John Solt came to visit me in the hospital. The Slusser Law Firm filed suit on my behalf.

    Through the long recovery and rehabilitation process Attorneys Slusser and Solt and the team investigated, hired experts, took depositions and kept me informed of everything along the way. In the end, they secured me a cash settlement that has helped transform my life. Thank you to everyone at the firm for all your tireless work and for believing in my case.
