The unique circumstances of motorcycle crashes
When a motorcycle collides with another motor vehicle, it’s likely that injuries will occur, as motorcycle riders do not have anywhere near the protection as the drivers of passenger cars, trucks and SUVs. Even relatively minor crashes could result in serious injuries and property damage, and you may need to seek compensation for past and future medical bills, loss of wages, pain and suffering, and other types of damages. If your motorcycle was damaged or totaled in an accident, you may also pursue compensation for the costs of repair or a replacement bike.
Why do motorcycle accidents occur?
There’s a wide range of issues that lead to motorcycle crashes, with the following being some of the most common:
- Distracted driving: Cell phones, food and other passengers may prevent motorists from paying attention to the road in front of them, resulting in a crash. It’s important for all drivers to avoid these distractions and take the proper precautions to avoid serious accidents.
- Drunk driving: This is an irresponsible activity for both drivers and motorcycle riders. Operating while under the influence of alcohol or drugs reduces reaction times and makes the likelihood of an accident much greater. If a driver is facing drunk driving criminal charges, it could significantly help in your personal injury claim.
- Poor road conditions: Loose gravel and poorly maintained roads could cause motorcyclists to lose control and crash. In these circumstances, you may need to take legal action against the agency in charge of road upkeep.
A lawyer with our firm will investigate the circumstances of your motorcycle accident, determining who or what was at fault and seeking the compensation you need and deserve.
