Horn Law routinely represents clients and families of those severely injured or killed in a motorcycle accident. Over the years we have handled a variety of motorcycle accidents, most involving head or serious orthopedic injuries. Legal representation is crucial as many insurance companies attempt to place the blame on the motorcyclist. Many motorcycle/auto collisions happen because the driver of the auto was not exercising the highest degree of care in driving his/her vehicle.
