Motorcycle Accident Attorney
Why do I need a "motorcycle attorney" to handle my case?
When you have plumbing problem, you hire a plumber, not a roofer...face it; you need someone who knows about your case BEFORE you hire them.
A "motorcycle attorney" is an attorney that rides motorcycles so he or she knows how a biker will react in a panic situation with or without personal injury.
A "motorcycle attorney" understands the road hazards, road defects and visibility issues that may not affect someone driving a car, but will have serious effects on a motorcycle rider.
A "motorcycle attorney" understands that even a small amount of sand or gravel fallen from a truck can cause a rider to go down.
And finally, a "motorcycle lawyer" knows his or her clients, understands the needs of the client, a fellow rider, and is willing to fight as hard at the end of the case as at the beginning to make sure a fellow rider is compensated for his or her claim and receives all of the compensation for which he or she is entitled.
Will you come to my home for a personal visit?
Of course. If you want to meet in person, at your home, or anywhere else, we will come to you and answer any and all questions that you have. Our office will visit you at your convenience. We will try your case if necessary.
Can I speak directly to an attorney if it is a weekend or after normal business hours?
Always. If you call our toll free number, 800-699-9097, after 5:30 pm on a weekday or anytime on a weekend, those calls are sent directly to Steve Kirby's cell phone. Though it may sometimes go to his voice mail he will immediately return your call. If you want to speak to an attorney on Sunday afternoon, you can. We don't believe in having an answering service.
Does your attorney try cases? (See our "Recent Case Resolutions")
We do. Our office does not "farm out" cases to other lawyers when a case gets "hard". When you hire our firm, we stick with you until the end of your case...there is no network, there is no referral service. If your case goes to trial, we will be right there with you all the way.
Does your attorney ride?
Of course we ride. It is why we do what we do. If we didn't ride, you wouldn't trust us to handle your case...and you would be right.
Is Kirbys Law the right motorcycle law firm for my case?
Yes. We are truly motorcycle attorneys. We all ride and we all practice law. Steve Kirby spends his relaxation hours building bikes, and as a point of fact, put himself through law school building bikes and putting engines together.
We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We don't use an answering service; we don't have a catchy name. We just provide you with the best possible legal representation, and with rates that reflect the fact that we want our clients to be happy when the case resolves.
