North Carolina is the ultimate place to be a biker. Blue Ridge Parkway is known for having the best scenery east of the Rocky Mountains. A lot of riders choose Route 24 for a picturesque ride from Charlotte to Carthage, where people come from all over the area to pick up some BBQ at the Pik-n-Pig. Charlotte is a great jumping off point for some of the best scenic rides in NC, like Lake Norman, Crowders Mountain or the Blue Ridge Parkway. Whether you’re headed out for a rally, a weekend ride through the city, or Friday bike night at McKoy’s Smokehouse, you’re sure to have the best ride of your life in Charlotte.
Charlotte’s top motorcycle lawyer Bob Karney is an avid biker who lives for the opportunity to hop on his Harley and feel the rush of the ride. But as a lawyer with over 30 years of experience representing bikers in the community, he knows that a motorcycle accident can happen at any time. All it takes is for a single driver on the road to be distracted for a few seconds and lives can be forever altered.
In North Carolina, 150 residents die in motorcycle accidents each year while more than 3,000 others experience non-fatal injuries, according to the NC DOT.
While some bikers might be lucky enough to walk away with a few broken bones, far more will experience significant injuries. Motorcyclists are often thrown from their bikes in a crash. While car drivers and passengers sit behind the protection of their vehicles, bikers are vulnerable to life-threatening brain injuries or paralysis.
Biker Bob Karney’s firm, Karney Law, is based in Charlotte, where he is actively involved in the local biker community. Since he is friends with so many bikers and their families, he is passionate about fighting for justice in motorcycle accident cases.
When the insurance companies want to settle claims quickly for the most meager amounts possible, Bob Karney steps in and gets victims and their families the compensation they deserve. He understands that most people don’t want a long, drawn out battle, but sometimes it is necessary to be able to pay the mounting doctor bills and compensate for future medical expenses. Bob fights that battle for you.
