Based in Salt Lake City, The Gooch Firm, P.C. represents injured motorcyclists and their families in personal injury and wrongful death cases. The roads and highways winding through Utah and Idaho’s scenic terrain offer ideal routes for motorcyclists but also present serious hazards, such as dangerous curves, slick pavement, and touring drivers unfamiliar with the roadways. Our lawyers regularly handle motorcycle accident cases and possess a thorough knowledge of motorcycle mechanics, common road hazards for riders, and effective settlement and trial strategies.
I have been a practicing attorney for over 20 years. During that time I have represented a wide range of people, with a wide range of injuries. My clients mean a great deal to me. I have assembled a team that is dedicated to getting the best results for the fantastic people we represent.
Our attorneys and staff appreciate both the enjoyment and risks of riding a motorcycle. While easy maneuverability and small size make a motorcycle fun to drive, these inherent characteristics also make it difficult for other drivers to see and avoid motorcycle drivers, especially on crowded or curvy roads. Furthermore, we recognize that too often police officers and other drivers perceive motorcyclists as reckless, and tend to place blame with the rider in motorcycle accident cases. In order to combat this bias, our lawyers and staff thoroughly investigate each case, visiting the accident scene to check for defective roadways and scrutinizing police reports and medical records. Aiding our efforts further, we work alongside expert authorities in the medical, financial, and damage assessment fields to construct the strongest case possible.
Because motorcycles do not offer the level of protection provided by an enclosed vehicle, motorcyclists often sustain catastrophic injuries when involved in an accident with a car or truck. Even when wearing the necessary helmet and protective clothing, a motorcyclist may suffer life-threatening and permanent injuries, such as spinal cord injuries and brain injuries, and in some cases, wrongful death. At The Gooch Firm, we zealously represent motorcyclists who have been injured due to another driver’s negligence or fault. Because these injuries may be serious and extensive, we work tirelessly to obtain adequate compensation to cover both present and future medical treatment, as well as compensation for other physical and emotional damage.
