Some of the most distressing Louisiana roadway accidents involve motorcycles. Motorcycles are more dangerous than other automobiles because they pose a greater risk to the driver. A motorcycle accident can lead to serious and debilitating injuries, such as spinal injuries, brain injuries, broken bones and fractures, as well as head and neck injuries.

Due to the lack of protective casing and the small-size of the bike, accident victims on motorcycles always face a greater risk of severe injury or even death. According to the Governor's Highway Safety Association, per mile driven, the fatality rate for motorcycle accidents is 26 times higher than in automobile accidents. If you or a loved one was in a motorcycle accident due to another driver's negligence, call us at The Law Office of Craig Leydecker and we'll fight to get you the maximum compensation you deserve.


In Louisiana, the leading causes of motorcycle accidents are visibility and driver negligence. Often, bad weather or obstructed views cause visibility issues that lead to an automobile or truck driver's error when making a left-hand turn. Negligent drivers will commonly rear-end motorcycles because they are either following too closely or fail to yield. Because insurance companies often look at motorcyclists as renegades or thrill seekers, they often believe that the motorcycle driver is at fault. Some insurance companies may err on the side of caution and deny a claim, even though it may be valid.

At The Law Office of Craig Leydecker, you can rely on the experience and investigative abilities of our legal team. We know how the system works, and we can ensure that you will be treated fairly and you are fully compensated.


As with other motor vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents can lead to catastrophic injuries and fatalities. When the other driver behaves negligently behind the wheel or is determined to be "at fault" for the accident, he will be held responsible for the damage or loss of your motorcycle as well as the reimbursement of your lost wages and medical expenses.
