Experienced Motorcycle Accident Attorneys In Southern Pines
We are proud to stand up for injured bikers in Moore County
There’s nothing like enjoying the open road and beautiful North Carolina weather on a motorcycle, but that can turn tragic in a moment thanks to another motorist’s negligence. Careless drivers can leave bikers with severe, life-altering injuries.
Motorcycle accidents caused by other drivers in Southern Pines happen for many different reasons. Sometimes, distracted drivers on Morgantown Road cause rear-end motorcycle crashes. Other times, speeding drivers on Route 1 or another busy road might be to blame.
If you’re in that situation, you have rights, and we can protect them. Brent Adams & Associates proudly stands up for people injured in motorcycle accidents in Southern Pines and throughout Moore County. If you’ve been hurt in a motorcycle accident, don’t go it alone.

When motorcycle accidents happen, it’s usually the driver’s fault.
Some motorists just don’t care enough to share the road with bikers. We represent people hurt in all types of motorcycle accidents, including:
- Crashes at intersections: it’s common for a motorist making a left turn to fail to yield to an oncoming motorcycle, leading to a collision.
- Rear-end accidents: some motorists follow too closely and fail to take into account the motorcycle’s much shorter stopping distance.
- Head-on collisions: when a motorist drifts into the oncoming lane or otherwise fails to notice an oncoming bike, serious injuries can occur.
- Illegal passing: because a motorcycle physically takes up less space in the lane, some drivers think they can pass within the same lane. This is incredibly dangerous.
- Forced off road: even without contact, a motorist can cause serious injury to a biker by forcing them to swerve or ditch their bike to avoid a collision.
Whether the driver who hit you was under the influence, distracted, asleep at the wheel, or just careless, you have rights under North Carolina law. Our job as your Southern Pines motorcycle accident lawyer is to hold negligent drivers accountable, fight for the compensation you deserve, and make our roads safer for motorcycles and other road users.
We’ll fight for full value for your injuries.
Even with helmets and other protective gear, motorcyclists have much less protection than people in enclosed vehicles. The injuries sustained are often serious – brain injuries, lost limbs, road rash, biker’s arm, and more. The bottom line is that you deserve full compensation for everything you’ve lost due to the accident, including:
- Medical expenses, from emergency treatment to future surgery and physical therapy.
- Replacement income if you’re unable to work due to an injury.
- Pain and suffering, mental anguish, and emotional distress.
- Repair or replacement of your motorcycle and any other damaged property.
The stakes are high in motorcycle accident cases. Unfortunately, there’s also a bias against bikers. Insurance companies are more than happy to exploit that bias to protect their bottom line. They know there’s a lot of money at stake, and they will do what they can to pay you as little as possible – or nothing at all.
We know how to overcome those challenges and build winning cases on behalf of injured bikers. We will investigate and find the critical evidence that proves the driver who hit you was responsible. We know North Carolina law, we understand what it takes to win, and we’re not afraid to go to trial if that’s what it takes to get a positive outcome.
What makes motorcycle accident claims complicated?
If another driver caused your motorcycle accident in Southern Pines, you might think that your accident claim would be fairly straightforward. After all, another driver was clearly at fault and North Carolina has an at-fault insurance system when it comes to collisions.
Unfortunately, the at-fault driver’s insurance company will often do everything they can to reduce or deny motorcycle accident claims. And one of the ways they try to do this is to blame motorcyclists for causing the crash. Another way is to only take into account injury-related expenses shortly after a motorcycle crash.
This is why you need an experienced motorcycle accident attorney on your side who knows North Carolina’s laws and knows how to handle motorcycle accident claims and lawsuits in Moore County. That’s why you need us fighting for you.
A Southern Pines motorcycle accident lawyer who will take your case seriously.
