Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

Motorcycle accidents are all too common on roadways and unfortunately, they are four times more likely to lead to death than other motor vehicle accidents.

There are safety precautions that can be taken to try to avoid injuries, such as wearing a helmet and protective gear, but it is still much more dangerous to ride than drive; helmets are only about 29% effective in preventing crash fatalities.

Surprisingly, most crashes occur during short trips of less than five miles and most riders are driving less than 30 miles per hour when the crash happens.

A large amount of crashes occur merely because the vehicle driver is unable to see the rider.

To help with driver visibility, you should always:

  • Wear a helmet; preferably a white/light-colored helmet to make you more visible.
  • Wear bright clothing so drivers will be able to better see you.
  • Have daytime running lights or always turn on your headlights.
  • Use your turn signals so that drivers know what you are planning.

If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, it is important that you seek medical attention immediately, even if you feel unhurt because you could be suffering from shock. For more information about what to do if you are involved in an accident, visit the common questions about motorcycle accidents page.

After your accident, it is imperative that you seek legal counsel as soon as possible so that you may be advised on how to proceed with your claim.

Some questions you might have after a motorcycle accident include:

  • How will I pay my hospitalization and medical expenses?
  • What will I do about my lost work time?
  • How will I support my loved ones while I am incapacitated?
  • How can I pay the funeral and medical expenses incurred by my loved one?
  • Will someone be held accountable for my accident?

A motorcycle accident attorney will be able to help you answer difficult questions and help you get the compensation you deserve.
