Nampa Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Riders have equal rights to the road. Many drivers of larger cars and trucks do not give bikers the respect that they deserve on the road.
This can result in collisions that leave you with severe injuries, a loss of income, and intense mental anguish.
Insurance companies try to claim motorcycle crashes are a result of the rider’s reckless maneuvers or inexperience.
If you are being pushed around by the insurance company, push back.
Skaug Law cares about bikers. That’s why we became a founding member of the National Academy of Motorcycle Injury Lawyers (NAMIL).
We also launched IdahoBikerLawyer.com, a special site for riders.
A Nampa motorcycle accident lawyer can help you to collect the compensation needed to set things right.

Types of Cases We Handle
Our bike crash injury lawyers represent clients including:
- Motorcycle accidents
- Scooter and moped crashes
- Four-wheeler and other off-road vehicles
- Equipment defects
You may also have a defective product case. In some motorcycle accident cases, we also handle helmet defect claims against the manufacturers.
If a helmet cracks or falls off when a client is hit, there may be potential for a defective product claim in addition to the lawsuit against a negligent driver.
The Law Treats Bikers the Same Way as Any Motorist
Skaug Law attorneys have extensive experience overcoming prejudices against our motorcycle clients.
Drivers have an obligation to operate their vehicles in a safe manner and follow the rules of the road.
Any driver who fails to uphold this duty, and as a result gets into an accident, may be negligent.
A negligence case following a motorcycle accident states that a defendant’s poor driving led to a crash and that the defendant is liable to provide compensation.
Common examples of motorcycle accident scenarios include:
- A driver fails to check a blind spot before changing lanes
- A driver is tailgating a motorcyclist who comes to a stop at a red light
- Texting while driving that leads to distraction
- Driving while intoxicated
Our Nampa motorcycle accident lawyers help victims win maximum compensation for past and future medical costs and care, lost income, pain and suffering, property damage, and other losses.
Let Us Help You Pursue Compensation
Individuals involved in motorcycle accidents are likely to be suffering from severe injuries.
It is not uncommon for the victims of these accidents to endure broken bones, head trauma, and severe cuts and scrapes to name a few.
Injured individuals may be able to recover compensation for damages such as:
- Medical bills
- Lost income
- Lost earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of consortium
In addition, victims can recover compensation for any mental trauma they have endured.
A Nampa motorcycle accident lawyer can calculate the value of your case and fight to recover its full value.
Claims of Shared Fault
Often, the defendant will argue that a biker was at partially responsible for the accident.
The State of Idaho follows the theory of comparative negligence. This means that the courts will assign a percentage of blame to each party.
If you are found to be more than 50 percent at fault for the accident, you may not be able to recover compensation.
It is extremely important to seek help from a dedicated motorbike crash attorney in Nampa as soon as possible following an accident.
Our attorneys can use evidence and witness testimony to convince a court that the defendant was entirely to blame for the collision.
