Motorcycle accidents are some of the most dangerous and damaging collisions we see. As motorcycle accident attorneys, we understand that although safety equipment is available, motorcyclists do not have the benefit of being enclosed in steel, do not have seatbelts, and do not have airbags to keep them safe in the event an accident occurs. Motorcycle accidents almost always result in an injured rider. In fact, if a collision does happen, injuries to the riders of a motorcycle are a near certainty. 96% of single vehicle/motorcycle accidents and 98% of multi-vehicle/motorcycle collisions result in some type of injury to the motorcyclist.
In addition to an increased likelihood of injury in a collision, motorcyclists often suffer unfortunate stigmas/stereotypes and are seen as reckless or ‘asking for it’. We know this is not the case. No one wants to suffer the types of injuries motorcycle collisions can cause. Our motorcycle collision clients have suffered paralysis, bone fractures, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, ruptured discs, injuries to internal organs, limb-threatening conditions, and even amputations.
In many instances, drivers fail to see motorcycles in traffic when turning or changing lanes. They fail to keep proper distances when behind a motorcycle on the road, or misjudge the space between themselves and a rider. Sometimes, drivers of vehicles will try to blame the motorcyclist for the collision when it is not their fault. If you or a loved one are the victim of a motorcycle accident, it is important to get an experienced motorcycle accident attorney on your side. We know the common pitfalls and challenges victims of these collisions face, and will help you fight to obtain compensation while you work to get better.
As experienced motorcycle accident attorneys, we understand the importance of following every reasonable lead, hiring knowledgeable experts when needed, and preparing your case early on so we face no surprises down the road.
