About Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycles can provide an exhilarating ride, but unfortunately, too many drivers and passengers fall victim to devastating accidents. According to U.S. government statistics from 2014, motorcyclists are 27 times as likely to die in a crash as the occupants of an automobile, and six times as likely to be severely injured. Common injuries seen after a motorcycle crash include multiple bone fractures, spinal cord injuries, loss of limbs, head trauma, and disfiguring damage to soft tissue. Victims often face a very long road to recovery, and many suffer permanent disabilities.
“For legal help with a motorcycle accident claim, it is important to seek out an attorney who fully understands this type of case.”
While bike riders and their families expect their accident claim to be handled similarly to any car accident, this is often not the case. Many insurance adjusters, as well as courtroom jurors, have a level of bias against motorcycle riders. People who do not ride motorcycles sometimes unfairly see riders as reckless risk-takers. In fact, many motorcycle accidents are caused by the negligent driving of car and truck operators. All drivers are responsible for surveying their surroundings and maintaining awareness of nearby cars, motorcycles, bikes, and pedestrians. Those who are impaired by alcohol, distracted by a cell phone, or driving at high speeds cannot be as responsive as they need to be.
