Fighting for the rights of the injured in Lafayette
Motorcycles are popular in Indiana. But a single act of negligence by a car or truck driver can cause a crash that leaves a motorcyclist seriously hurt. The Lafayette motorcycle accident attorneys at Vaughan & Vaughan know the impact a crash can have on your life. That's why we want to help you hold the negligent parties accountable and recover financial compensation.
Too many drivers treat motorcyclists as a nuisance. Many don't notice motorcycles or drive recklessly around them. This greatly increases the risk of getting into a crash. A motorcycle accident can cause a wide range of injuries. These include burns, scarring and disfigurement, and broken bones.

Other examples of injuries include eye damage and amputation. A crash can also cause catastrophic injuries such as a spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury. Recovery can take months or years. Some people are left with a permanent disability.
The medical expenses for treatment after an accident can quickly become overwhelming. And if you cannot work because of your injuries, you may suffer a loss of income. You deserve compensation for your injuries, but many families find it hard to make ends meet. And many insurance companies simply stall instead of trying to resolve the situation.
Helping you get justice
Recovering compensation after a motorcycle accident can be difficult. The driver who caused your crash may refuse to accept responsibility. The insurance company may try to pay you as little as possible to keep their profits high. And they likely have lawyers working on their behalf to help them achieve their goals.
That's why you need an experienced Lafayette lawyer on your side. One who knows how insurance companies operate and how to get them to pay the compensation you deserve. One with a long history of helping the injured get results. Our law firm is ready to fight for you.
We can investigate your motorcycle accident to find the facts for ourselves. We can gather evidence and review all documentation, such as police reports and medical records. We can identify and interview witnesses who saw what happened. And if needed, we can bring in an accident reconstruction expert to help us better understand what caused your crash.
Insurance companies often believe motorcyclists are reckless and must have done something to cause their accident. Our attorneys know how to build a strong case that proves you were the victim of negligence. This often brings insurance companies to the negotiating table.
Experience gets results
We are focused on getting the best possible outcome in your case. This means a settlement or jury verdict that provides you with compensation for all medical expenses related to your injuries - past and future. It should also provide you with lost income if you cannot work, as well as other damages such as pain and suffering.
Our firm has generations of results. We have helped many motorcyclists recover the compensation they deserve through negotiated settlements and jury verdicts. Our goal is to make sure you get the treatment you need and enough financial stability to help you move forward and get your life back on track.
