The Parrish Law Firm, PLLC Builds a Convincing Motorcycle Accident Claim on Your Behalf
To win a civil lawsuit against the party or parties responsible for your Warrenton motorcycle accident, we must demonstrate four things:
- The defendant owed you a duty of care;
- The defendant failed to uphold their duty to you;
- The defendant’s negligence caused your accident;
- You incurred damages as a result.
The Defendant Owed You a Duty of Care
In most motorcycle accident cases, the responsible party is another driver. By virtue of getting behind the wheel, they accepted an implied duty to all other motorists on the road. This duty requires them to obey traffic laws, drive defensively, and watch out for all other motorists.
The Defendant Failed to Uphold Their Duty
We can build a case that shows the defendant’s behavior fell short of the duty of care they owed you. Their failure of duty may involve violating a traffic law, acting with negligence, or committing a maliciously wrongful act.
The Defendant’s Negligence Caused Your Accident
To prove the defendant is liable, we must draw a cause-and-effect link between their behavior and your injury. It must meet the preponderance of the evidence standard, meaning we must establish that it is more likely than not that your vehicle accident and injuries resulted from the defendant’s actions.
It Caused You to Suffer Damages
You suffered damages such as medical bills, lost wages, lost earning capacity, or “pain and suffering.”

Why You Should Speak with Us Before Talking to the Insurance Company
You should almost never agree to talk to an insurance company before you have spoken with an injury lawyer. Even if your conversation with the insurer seems casual and off the record, you should assume everything is being documented, and that any statement you make could be twisted and used against you.
If the defendant was clearly and unmistakably at fault, their insurer may call and offer a quick settlement, an enticing proposition for someone who may have expensive medical bills on the way. But if you take the first offer put in front of you by the insurance company, you may receive less than you deserve and leave money — potentially lots of it — on the table.
Our team takes on the insurance companies, and prevents them from saddling you with a settlement that pays less than you deserve.
