Truck & Motorcycle Accidents

Des Moines Motorcycle Crash Lawyer

People who are involved in motor vehicle accidents can suffer very severe injuries. However, these injuries are frequently much more severe in cases involving motorcycle crashes and truck accidents. As an experienced West Des Moines motorcycle crash attorney, practicing for more than 37 years, Peter Berger has the trial skills and personal dedication to his clients to provide effective representation in these complex accident cases.

Representation for Those Injured in Motorbike Accidents

Motorcycle accidents and bike crashes are unique from any other motor vehicle accident in that the cyclist has little or no protection from the impact of the crash. Sadly, even when riders are wearing helmets or other protective gear, they may suffer a serious head or brain injury, road rash, lost limbs (amputation), broken bones, dislocations and other injuries.

From his office in Urbandale, attorney Peter Berger helps people who have been seriously injured in a motorcycle crash caused by another's negligence. These crashes are frequently caused by the negligence or recklessness of other drivers on the road, such as drivers who cut off the motorcycle when changing lanes or turning, inattentive drivers talking on cellphones, drivers who don't see the motorcycle and run it off the road, and other careless activities.

Help for Truck Accident Victims and Family Members

Due to the size and weight of 18-wheelers, tractor-trailers, and other commercial vehicles, the victims of truck wrecks nearly always suffer catastrophic injuries and sometimes die as a result. Peter Berger represents semi-truck accident victims and their families in personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits in order to recover the compensation they need and deserve.

As an experienced trial lawyer, Mr. Berger knows what it takes to achieve results for his clients. In cases involving trucking accidents, this involves investigating the accident and all angles of liability. He uncovers negligence, such as truck driver negligence (fatigue, speeding, driving under the influence), truck company negligence (negligent hiring, negligent maintenance), or defective products. Mr. Berger uses his skills to hold negligent parties accountable in order to recover full compensation for clients.
