Motorcycle Accident Injury Lawyers

Motorcycle enthusiasts appreciate Virginia’s spectacular scenery and the feeling of freedom on the open road. However, that same freedom makes those on motorcycles especially vulnerable when an accident occurs. A car’s steel frame absorbs some of the impact in a collision. The motorcyclist has no such protection.

For more than 60 years, the Petersburg motorcycle accident lawyers at Rutter Mills have been helping clients get the money they need after a serious bike accident.


An experienced motorcycle accident lawyer should never charge you anything upfront to take your case. At Rutter Mills, we only work on a contingency basis, so we don’t get paid if you don’t win. 

Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

Unfortunately it is not unusual for a collision between a motorcycle and a standard vehicle to result in the destruction of the bike and severe injuries to those on it, while the car itself is hardly damaged and its occupants unharmed. That is the primary reason so many motorcycle and car accidents end up with the cyclist either killed or severely injured.

Many times, the accident results from negligence on the motorist’s part, not that of the cyclist. Because these bikes are so small relative to other vehicles on the road, some drivers simply do not see them until it is too late.

Our Compassionate Team Understands

The Petersburg motorcycle accident lawyers at Rutter Mills understand how such a crash changes your life, and work hard so that you receive the maximum compensation for your injuries. For more than 50 years, we have helped clients receive the settlements they deserve and assist with putting their lives back together.

The simplest mistake by the driver of a car can cause an accident– the most frequent causes include:

  • Distracted driving
  • Poor lookout
  • Driving under the influence
  • Failure to yield
  • Misjudging motorcycle speed
  • Not checking blind spots when changing lanes
  • Tailgating

Many people are grateful just to be alive after an accident since these crashes cause so many fatalities. Those who do survive may experience severe, often permanent injuries. The most common include:

  • Amputation
  • Disfigurement
  • Internal injuries
  • Loss of vision or hearing
  • Paralysis
  • Quadriplegia
  • Traumatic brain injury

In addition to extended hospital stays, many of those disabled will require special equipment and accommodations. Some may end up in nursing home facilities. A lawyer knows the amount of a fair settlement based on the client’s condition and prognosis.

If a family member dies from their injuries, an experienced Petersburg motorcycle accident attorney can help the estate’s personal representative file a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of the deceased person’s family.

After a serious motorcycle accident, it is crucial to obtain legal advice as soon as possible. Never agree to any negotiations with an insurance company before speaking with an attorney. A Petersburg motorcycle accident lawyer at Rutter Mills offers a free consultation, so call or text 24/7 or complete our online contact form to schedule an appointment.

While most motorcycle accident cases are settled, we will go to trial if the insurance company does not offer a reasonable settlement. There is no fee unless you receive compensation.

First off I want to thank Rutter Mills for the outstanding work they continue to do. I had a case recently and it was a complex one. My lawyer, Will Nexsen did an amazing job. I would highly recommend him and Rutter Mills. I want to give a big thanks to Julia, as well, for keeping me constantly in the loop. She always texted or called me back immediately with any questions and concerns I had. I greatly appreciated that.

I came to Rutter Mills during one of the most difficult and terrifying times in my life. Mr. Young and his assistant Kathy Saunders were so welcoming and understanding. They worked diligently to handle my case. It is by no means a quick and easy process, however these two make the wait worth it. I hope you never find yourself in my shoes but if you do I highly recommend these two to help you along your process.

I was injured in a accident & was rejected by 2 law offices that said it was my fault even though I was hit from behind. Rutter Mills got the job done. They had police testify and a witness. I was impressed with how thoroughly they got results. If you want a true dedicated firm that get you results this is it - hands down - Rutter Mills!
