About Motorcycle Accidents
Statistics confirm that motorcycle riders are vulnerable, particularly in high-traffic, urban areas. The cause of these accidents is often a mistake on the part of a car or truck driver. About two-thirds of the time, the vehicle can be shown to have violated the motorcycle rider's right of way.
While motorcycles are inherently less visible, this is not a valid excuse for driver inattention. As is the case with all types of traffic accidents, alcohol and drugs frequently play a part, as does distracted driving. Because a bike provides little protection in an accident, a motorcyclist is five times more likely to be injured in a crash than the occupant of a car. The fallout of these accidents can be catastrophic, leaving some victims contending with traumatic brain injury, loss of limb, or a spinal cord injury. There may be staggering losses, including lost income, medical bills, pain and suffering, and severe emotional distress. A rider is also 26 times as likely to die from injuries sustained in the collision.

Our experienced legal team will thoroughly investigate all aspects of your accident, no matter how complex. In some cases, there is third-party liability from a faulty product or repair. A malfunctioning bike can cause or contribute to a crash if, for example, a misaligned tire caused a dangerous wobble.
