Durham Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Motorcycle Injury Law Firm in North Carolina- Kornbluth Ginsberg Law Group

Motorcyclists face various disadvantages on the road: They are often overlooked by other drivers, are easy to miss because of their smaller size, and cannot benefit from traditional cabin safety features (such as seatbelts, airbags, etc.). Because of these disadvantages, motorcyclists are exposed to severe injuries when a collision occurs. When the car driver is at fault in these cases, victims often have to fight to receive the relief they deserve.

At Kornbluth Ginsberg Law Group, P.A., we are well aware of the difficulties and stigmas that motorcyclists face in the aftermath of a car accident that wasn't their fault. These victims are often blamed for these accidents just because of the fact they were on a motorcycle at the time that they occurred. Our dedicated and aggressive Durham motorcycle accident lawyers know how to assert the facts in these cases and ensure that fault is properly assigned to the negligent parties.
