The Right Legal Team Makes All The Difference

Hiring a motorcycle accident lawyer with a sensible yet aggressive approach is especially important in today's environment of motorcycle bias.

The Boston firm of Feinberg & Alban, P.C. Serving the New England Area with Affiliated Counsel is very knowledgeable and uses the appropriate demonstrative evidence as well as working with the proper experts to explain the dynamics of the injury.  The lawyer you select must understand the medicine. That will explain what is often referred to as the mechanism of injury (surprisingly, something that is often disputed), the nature of the injury, the prognosis, and similar issues. The lawyer should also know what the dollar value is of these cases. Comparable settlements and verdicts are relevant.

Nuts & Bolts...

Some of our bikes vibrate by design..  Others are so smooth you have a difficult time knowing that the engine is running.  What they all have in common is that parts are held together and held on our bikes with good old fashioned nuts and bolts.  We've been digging around for sources of stainless steel, chrome, high strength, and just plain 'normal' fasteners.
