Motorcycle Accidents

Any type of accident on the road can be devastating. In mere seconds, what might have started as a regular ride could become a life-changing event. Motorcyclists who consistently have good judgment on the road are involved in accidents every day, often to no fault of their own. What’s more, the structural differences between a motorcycle and a car can mean that the injuries sustained are often very severe.

For people who ride responsibly, the casualty statistics for collisions are especially disturbing. The occupant fatality rate on a motorcycle is more than six times of that in a passenger car.[1]

Please call us so we can help you evaluate the options for a potential claim. Let’s make sure you receive the funds you’re owed to help support your recovery.

Get the Compensation You’re Owed

Experienced bikers know that the skills required for riding are vastly different from driving a car. Earning your motorcycle license endorsement works to show that you’ve put in the time and effort to practice safe driving. Unfortunately, the same can’t always be said for other drivers on the road.

Negligent motorists can cause accidents at any time of day. Approximately 78% of motorcycle fatalities occur in good weather.[2]

When you’re properly licensed to ride a motorcycle, it can be incredibly frustrating to have to share the road with distracted drivers. Many motorcyclists who have great balance and coordination can find themselves in serious danger when there’s an irresponsible driver in a nearby car. Whether the motorist was looking down at their phone or preoccupied with other passengers in their car or truck, their inattentiveness can quickly cause an accident that will most likely harm the biker the most.

Your bike may have been less visible than other automobiles on the road. Yet that doesn’t excuse someone else’s poor judgment.

After a motorcycle accident, victims often find that the insurance companies are trying to strong-arm them into taking a low and unreasonable settlement. If a motorcycle accident injured you or a loved one, please let our personal injury attorneys consider the particulars of your claim.

Were You Injured on the Road?

Many motorcyclists experience spinal cord injuries after an accident, and in some cases, even death. Potentially permanent disabilities include head injuries and loss of limb. As a victim, you may have the right to pursue settlement amounts for injuries that require surgery or intensive care, such as:

  • Tibia or tibial plateau fractures
  • Upper leg / femur or hip fractures
  • Shoulder joint tears
  • Herniated discs
  • Broken wrists
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Facial fractures

You may have sustained your injuries because a vehicle collided with your bike and threw you across the pavement. You could also be healing from “road burned” hands and legs from exposure to the asphalt, or even recovering from a major operation. Even safety equipment that’s DOT-certified can’t fully protect us against drivers who blatantly ignore the right of way, speed limits, or rules for a lane change.

Although helmets reduce the risk of head injury by 69%, any type of motorcycle accident can be incredibly debilitating.[3]

If you were riding responsibly, dealing with high medical bills can feel incredibly unfair. With one quick phone call, our attorneys can begin to review the validity of your personal injury claim. You or your loved one could be entitled to significant compensation from another party.

You Followed Traffic Safety. But Others Didn’t.

We all know that the nature of riding a motorcycle means that there is a higher risk of serious injury if an accident was to occur. But even if you were road-ready, the other people on the road might have been distracted. Now who’s paying the price?

Whether you were driving the motorcycle or a passenger, the physical and emotional trauma of suffering an injury on the road is often life-altering. Please understand that you don’t need to face the next steps and legal proceedings alone.
