Motorcycle Accidents

Accidents involving a motorcycle can be devastating. It is not uncommon for a relatively minor accident to result in significant and sometimes fatal injuries to a motorcycle rider due to the lack of protection that a motorcycle affords to the rider and any passenger.

Why Should I Hire a Motorcycle Accident Attorney?

If you have been injured in an accident while riding a motorcycle, you need to focus your attention on healing. An attorney can help you by handling your claim for you to make sure that your accident is properly investigated to determine who was at fault and to evaluate your injuries and the value of your claim. Your attorney will then be able to properly advise you on how to best pursue your claim and whether your best option is to ultimately settle or take your case to trial. Every case is unique and an attorney is essential to make sure you maximize your recovery.

Common Motorcycle Accident Causes

There are many causes of motorcycle accidents, but among the most common are other drivers that simply do not see the motorcycle. While drivers look for other cars that are coming before pulling out into an intersection, they can miss a motorcycle due to its smaller size. Another common cause of motorcycle accidents is distracted driving. When drivers are not paying enough attention to their surroundings, they can make errors in judgment that can lead to motorcycle accidents. Anytime a driver of a motor vehicle hits a motorcycle, the accident can be devastating.

Common Motorcycle Accident Injuries

Motorcycle accidents can result in a variety of injuries. Every case is unique. A minor accident may cause nothing more than scrapes and bruises. If a biker has to lay the motorcycle down, he or she may have some road rash. However, some motorcycle accidents result in more devastating injuries such as broken limbs/loss of limbs, traumatic brain injury, and sometimes death.

Motorcycle Accident Liability

Who is liable in a motorcycle accident?
The answer to that question will entirely depend on how the accident occurred. That is why hiring an attorney is so important. You want to make sure that your accident is properly investigated so you can pursue recovery from the person or persons who caused your accident.
