Call Us Today About Your Motorcycle Accident
At 1-800-US-LAWYER, our personal injury attorneys understand the risks of the road, especially for motorcycle riders. We are dedicated to helping injured motorcyclist get the full compensation they need after an accident involving their motorcycle.
The risk of injury or death is much higher in motorcycle accidents than in any other type of motor vehicle accident.
Unfortunately, motorcyclists in the U.S. face grim statistics out on the road. Because motorcyclists are on the road with cars several times their size, the injuries that occur in an accident between a car and motorcycle are often severe. In fact, motorcyclists are nearly five times as likely to be injured per mile traveled as an average motor vehicle driver would. With the rise of distracted driving, accidents from negligence are becoming more common. Drivers not carefully checking their blind spots before changing lanes or merging are also often involved in motorcycle accidents. When careless or inattentive drivers cause accidents, our lawyers at 1-800-US-LAWYER will fight for injured bikers to pursue full compensation for their injury. We also help grieving families pursue wrongful death claims.
Every day, careless vehicle drivers hit and injure motorcycle riders. Their insurance companies often try to blame motorcyclists for these accidents because they want to avoid paying claims or to get away with paying as little as they can. This is not right. If you've been injured on a motorcycle, call us so we can fight for you.
Our lawyers have seen how motor vehicle drivers’ failure to detect and recognize motorcyclists can cause accidents. At times, drivers simply refuse to respect motorcyclists’ right to share the road. If you have been injured, or if a loved one has been injured or perished in a motorcycle accident, having trusted legal guidance from a personal injury attorney during this time is vital.
Motorcycle accidents commonly result in one or more of these injuries:
- Road rash
- Internal bleeding
- Broken bones
- Spinal cord injuries
- Soft tissue damage
- Traumatic brain damage
What should you do if you have been involved in a motorcycle accident? First move away from the vehicles if you are able to and call 911 right away. Get immediate medical attention for your injuries. Once you are safe, gather important information from the driver, witnesses, and even ask for a copy of the police report.
