According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcyclists are 34 times more likely to be killed in a motor vehicle accident than those occupying cars or trucks. This statistic can be attributed to many causes, including a relative lack of safety features (i.e., air bags, protective cages and seat belts). Yet, even with proper safety gear, motorcyclists can still suffer serious injuries due to impact with another vehicle or the road.

Investigating The Cause Of Your Motorcycle Accident

Our attorneys regularly work with accident reconstructionists and other experts to determine what caused an accident and who may be held liable for damages. Common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Drivers failing to see motorcyclists or failing to yield the right of way
  • Drivers following a motorcyclist too closely
  • Defective bike parts, including tires and brakes
  • Unsafe road conditions

Once the cause of an accident is determined, our legal team can begin to build a solid case against the negligent party.

The Impact Of Motorcycle Injuries

For those fortunate enough to survive a serious motorcycle accident, the injuries are often severe. Motorcycle accident victims often require lengthy hospitalization, numerous surgeries, physical and psychological therapy, and vocational rehabilitation. These costs quickly add up and can be overwhelming, making it necessary to seek legal representation.
