Baton Rouge Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

If you have been badly injured in a motorcycle accident, you are lucky to be alive! Motorcyclists are killed 27 times more often in accidents than passenger car occupants are, according to national figures. You are also entitled to compensation for your injuries and other losses if the accident was not your fault.

If you are the surviving relative of a motorcyclist who didn’t survive, you may be entitled to bring a wrongful death claim for the fatal motorcycle accident.

Stephen Babcock has put thousands of miles on his own motorcycles, ranging from Harley Davidsons to 2-stroke dirt bikes, and he knows and understands the ins and outs of riding. This gives us a special advantage that a non-rider attorney would not have representing you. The Louisiana personal injury attorneys of Babcock Partners will seek the compensation you deserve and will need to pay medical bills, repair or replace your bike, make up for lost income, and more. We are committed to standing up for motorcycle accident victims and seeking maximum compensation for losses in accidents in Baton Rouge and throughout Louisiana.

Attorneys Stephen Babcock and Chase Tettleton are members of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, a group of trial lawyers whose members have won million and multimillion dollar cases. Insurance companies know Babcock Partners are serious about taking cases to court – and that helps us get better settlements for clients faster through tough-minded negotiations.

A Long Road to Recovery for Motorcycle Accident Victims

Over the years that Babcock Partners has been assisting motorcyclists injured in accidents and/or their families, we have seen what injured riders go through.

A serious motorcycle accident can cause injuries that require hospitalization, surgery, rehabilitation and lengthy convalescence. Many motorcyclists are permanently disabled after collisions with cars and trucks. Some eventually die from their injuries, despite the best medical care.

If you have suffered any of the following injuries common to motorcycle accidents, Babcock Partners would like to meet with you and explain your legal options:

1Traumatic brain injury (TBI).toggle btn

A motorcyclist who must lay the bike down for any reason can easily suffer a blow to the head. A sharp hit to the head or a sudden jolt is likely to cause some degree of brain damage, from concussion to severe TBI. A TBI can cause lasting damage to the victim’s cognitive and physical abilities, which may continue to deteriorate in severe cases. Damage to a significant portion of the brain can result in coma — long-term loss of consciousness — or a vegetative state.

2Spinal cord injury / Paralysis.toggle btn

A blow or severe wrenching of the spinal column (vertebrae) in a motorcycle accident can tear or sever the spinal cord and cause paralysis. Paralysis occurs below the point of a spinal cord injury. A damaged spinal cord cannot be repaired, though therapy may restore some sensation or use of paralyzed extremities. Most spinal cord injuries will leave the motorcyclist with some degree of paraplegia (lower body affected) or tetraplegia (all four limbs affected), which will require a lifetime of care.

3Broken bones / Amputations.toggle btn

Impact and crushing wounds suffered in motorcycle accidents result in many fractures and the occasional amputation. A broken collarbone (clavicle) is a common motorcycle accident injury, which requires several weeks of immobilization followed by therapy for full movement of the affected shoulders and arms to be restored. A motorcyclist’s extremities — limbs, feet, hands — are extremely vulnerable in a motorcycle crash. Legs and feet are more likely to be injured than arms and hands, but it is more common for hand injuries to include nerve damage, which may result in some loss of use or sensation.

4Abdominal injury.toggle btn

Vital organs, like the bowels, stomach and liver, may be ruptured by a severe blow or penetrating wound suffered in a motorcycle accident. This can cause multisystem trauma or massive bleeding, which may lead to shock and death if not treated quickly. Damage to internal organs requires prompt emergency surgery, which may be difficult to obtain after a wreck in a rural area.

5Chest injury.toggle btn

A blow to the chest in a motorcycle accident may result in broken ribs, a fractured sternum, and/or injury to upper cavity organs (heart, lungs, diaphragm) protected by these bones. Even pieces of broken bone can damage the heart or lungs and cause cardiac or respiratory failure, which can easily lead to death.


It only makes sense to seek compensation you or your loved one is owed by a negligent driver who caused the injuries you are dealing with today. Babcock Partners can help you do it.

We’ll Seek Maximum Compensation for Your Motorcycle Accident

Most motorcycle accident cases are settled through negotiations with the liable (responsible) party’s insurance company. Babcock Partners will only enter these negotiations after thoroughly researching your case, which includes building solid evidence of liability and fully accounting for your costs and losses.

To maximize the damages (compensation) available to you, we will also identify all insurance coverage applicable to your case, and seek payment from all available sources of compensation. This may result in multiple claims, each of which will be handled with equal determination and care.

Once we have developed a solid case, we’ll negotiate aggressively with representatives of each and every defendant for compensation that addresses all of your losses as allowed by Louisiana law, including:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Reduced future earning capacity
  • Property damage (typically in a separate claim)
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of consortium

If the driver who caused your accident was legally drunk or impaired by drugs, we can also seek punitive damages, which would significantly increase the amount of money recovered in a settlement or jury verdict.

Louisiana is a pure comparative negligence state, which means the compensation you recover may be reduced according to the percentage of fault assigned to you for the accident. However, if less than 100 percent of the wreck is blamed on you, you can still recover damages.

As you know, Louisiana does not require motorcyclists over the age of 18 to wear helmets. However, you also need to understand that lack of a helmet in a rider’s accident is not a legal factor. The presence or absence of a helmet has no bearing on the cause of and, therefore, legal responsibility for a motorcycle accident.

In the aggressive settlement negotiations that Babcock Partners is known for, we will vigorously challenge any attempt by insurance companies to unfairly cast blame on you or your loved one for a motorcycle accident. We reject the prejudice motorcyclists sometimes face, and we will not put up with it coming from an insurance adjuster.

If the insurance company will not do the right thing and negotiations fail, we will be ready to fight for you in court.
