Catastrophic Personal Injuries > Motorcycle Accidents


A motorcycle accident lawyer understands that motorcyclists live for that feeling of freedom and connectedness to the road. We also know another feeling that comes with the territory: feeling physically vulnerable and less protected. Whether approaching an intersection or making a pass and hoping that the driver ahead sees you in their mirror, there’s a unique set of safety concerns for a motorcyclist. Most motorcyclists understand these concerns and take extra personal responsibility to avoid getting involved in an accident. However, accidents happen.

Too often, it is the destructive and distracted driving habits of motorists that create tragic consequences for motorcyclists. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported 84,000 motorcycle injuries in 2019 and more than 5,000 deaths in its most recent data. Death and catastrophic injury rates are more significant for motorcyclists than other vehicle operators. Motorcyclists are granted the same rights as other vehicles but aren’t as visible or accounted for by other drivers.


  • Drunk or impaired driver
  • Distracted or inattentive driver
  • Driver ignoring signals, signage, or other traffic safety laws
  • Drivers traveling at unsafe speeds
  • Impaired road surfaces (gravel, grass clippings) 
  • Parked car opening door
  • Sudden stops

Of course, motorcyclists must accept the responsibility of being safe riders by obeying traffic laws and not participating in activities illegal in Indiana, such as riding under the influence or lane splitting. The vigilance of a safe motorcycle operator is not always enough. As motorcycle accident lawyers, we understand the balance you strike when grabbing the handlebars—the desire for a fulfilling on-the-road experience and the necessity to exercise extreme caution on our streets and highways. You deserve a safe and accommodating environment to ride your motorcycle responsibly. When an accident happens through no fault of your own, you need to contact the experienced motorcycle injury attorneys of Montross Miller.


Seriously injured motorcyclists or the loved ones of a rider fatally killed face a future fraught with uncertainty. We stay in close contact with our client’s medical providers to understand the extent of your injury and its future financial and emotional impact. If your loved ones’ motorcycle accident results in wrongful death, we will take immediate steps to establish grounds and conduct a thorough investigation of the case. 

Insurance companies and juries may look at motorcycle accidents differently from other vehicle accidents. Insurance coverage for motorcyclists is typically more expensive than for autos, and it’s necessary to purchase personal injury protection (PIP) coverage. And juries often have misconceptions about motorcyclists that color their judgment. As we negotiate a settlement with the insurance company or present a case to a jury, we rely on our motorcycle accident case experience to help others understand the unique conditions motorcyclists face on our roads.


Traumatic Brain Injury – even helmeted riders can suffer traumatic brain injuries (TBI). The results can be catastrophic changes in brain function, affecting normal functioning, relationships, and work. 

Neck and Spine Injury – injuries to the neck and spine can seriously impact the brain-body connection, leading to loss of feeling, pain, and normal bodily functions. 

Partial or Full Paralysis – one of the worst outcomes of spine, neck, and brain injuries is paralysis, losing the function of one or all of one’s limbs. 

Limb Amputation – injuries that cause or lead to the loss of limb cause deep and long-lasting harm and change in lifestyle. 
Death – the family left behind from a fatal motorcycle accident suffers and may be eligible for a wrongful death claim.

Nate consulted with medical experts, dug in and proceeded with the civil suit. I remember him telling me several times that [my wife’s] story was compelling and was deserving of his team’s full commitment and skill. We eventually settled before trial and were thrilled with the results, we felt justice prevailed. Nate was patient, thorough and a trusted advisor to us through this.


He went to bat for us with health care providers and workman’s comp people. He fights for what is right. He really cared about what happened to my husband. Now, he will be taken care of for the rest of his life.


Scott did a truly amazing job for us. It was not just about the legal work; he was there for us every step of the way. From rehab, through settlement and even making sure appropriate financial arrangements were in place for the future. He went to bat for us with health care providers and workman’s comp people. He fights for what is right. He really cared about what happened to my husband.


Belinda was very responsive. I am very pleased. They are great at what they do.


Mike Miller and the firm were all excellent to work with and were extremely professional.


We worked with Brad Kallmyer who was phenomenal. He listened well and was very thorough and professional. I give all the credit to Brad. The staff was very kind, very understanding. They made my mom feel important. Brad’s integrity and the firm came through for us. They were great.


Words cannot express how tremendously grateful my husband and I are to Nate and his team during the most difficult times in our lives. He walked us through every step with the up most respect, never hesitating to answer any and all questions, or simply giving us a word of encouragement. It was a relief to know that he was always on our side, fighting for our case and believing that it was worth fighting for.
