Were you or someone you know involved in a motor cycle accident?

There are many obvious benefits to owning a motorcycle. The money you save on gas alone can be the primary reason many people consider buying a motorcycle. Others might appreciate the ability to fit into tight parking spots and of course, there is nothing quite like the open road on a clear summer day.

As tempting as the prospect of riding a motorcycle might be, it doesn’t come without its own risks. Every single time someone takes a motorcycle out for a drive there is an increased natural risk of getting into a vehicular accident with another motorist. In such instances, there is no protection between you and the road. No matter how cautious or safe you intend to operate a motorcycle you cannot control the intentional or accidental negligence of another driver.  Any impact can send you flying from the motorcycle onto the pavement or into other standing objects or worse, into a path of oncoming traffic. This is exactly why most motorcycle accidents end up being so severe.

  • review rating 5  I have never been in an accident before and was very overwhelmed to say the least during the initial stages of this proces. Not only was it my first accident, but it included a personal injury as well. Mr. Lutz was someone who believed in me, walked me through every step of the way, and always answered my questions, no matter how silly they may have seemed. The end result to my case was very positive thanks to Mr. Lutz and his expertise. - Susan Gallico

  • review rating 5  I was involved in a bad accident on my way to a jobsite. I was hit by a tractor trailer which resulted in several really serious painful injuries. I decided to take legal actions. I chose to hire Ed Lutz after carefully calling and emailing various personal injury lawyers. I am very happy I hired him. He truly cares about his clients and the case at hand. I called his office and believe it or not he actually answered the phone! He was pleasant to deal with and he was very professional. Now I have had some prior experiences with typical (I’ll never call you back) type lawyers. Ed Lutz is not one of them. You call his office and Kathy the secretary either gets him or he calls back usually that day. Kathy is also very pleasant to deal with on the phone and she couldn’t be nicer to deal with in person. Mr. Lutz handles the case from the very beginning to the very end. He knows the ins and outs of every detail of the case. He is extremely knowledgeable about the whole legal process and he will let you know about the different issues that may come up. His experts are also very good at what they do and the whole process couldn't have gone any smoother. Mr. Lutz got me a very large award and I cannot stress how important it is too find such a great lawyer such as Mr. Lutz. I would, without any hesitation, recommend him to handle your personal injury case.
