In recent years, residents of Rocky Mount, NC have seen both the good and the bad that can accompany a love of motorcycles.
On the good side is a heartwarming story from 2020 of Rocky Mount biker Lewis Clark, known as “The Godfather.” Doctors told Clark that he had kidney failure and had just days to live. The Street Soldiers, a Rocky Mount motorcycle club, made Clark an honorary member of the club and helped him forget his medical troubles for a bit. In fact, the club’s visit lifted Clark’s spirits so much that he started growing stronger and even stopped using his walker, shattering doctors’ expectations.
On the other end of the spectrum is the inescapable truth that riding a motorcycle in Rocky Mount is more dangerous than driving a car. For example, a 2021 wreck on East Raleigh Boulevard claimed one rider’s life and led to charges against the negligent car driver. The driver of the vehicle turned left into the path of the oncoming motorcyclist in a completely avoidable tragedy.
Should I Hire an Attorney?

- Remind you of critical deadlines
