Devastating motorcycle accidents demand firm representation

Motorcyclists face some very serious hazards when they are on the open roadways. One of the biggest hazards they face is other drivers. While there are many public service campaigns that remind drivers to keep a watchful eye out for motorcycles, some motorists still don't do a very good job.

We know that most motorcyclists operate their bikes in a very safe manner. In fact, in two-thirds of accidents that involve a motorcycle and another vehicle, the other vehicle was the cause of the accident because the driver didn't give the motorcycle the right of way that it was due.

There are several reasons why a motorist might not yield the right of way to a motorcycle when the motorcycle was due the right of way. In some cases, the motorist just wasn't really paying attention. The smaller size of motorcycles means that they can be hidden by other vehicles and structures. Approximately 70 percent of accidents involving motorcycles and another vehicle occur at an intersection. Intersections might have visual obstacles that contribute to these accidents.

We know that a motorcycle accident can be devastating. In fact, a motorcyclist is 26 times more likely to suffer a fatal injury and five times as likely to be injured in an accident as someone in another vehicle. We help injured bikers and the family members of bikers who were killed in accidents to seek compensation.

You don't have to fight the legal battles alone. Instead, while you focus on getting your life back together, we can fight the legal battles on your behalf.
