Motorcycle riders have a significantly higher chance of being killed in a motorcycle accident, than drivers of other vehicles. This is due to the fact that the motorcycle itself provides virtually no protection in a crash. Even a relatively “minor” impact can cause significant injuries to a motorcyclist, which may include head trauma, broken bones and torn ligaments. These injuries can be life changing and result in permanent disabilities, contact our motorcycle accident lawyers today.
Statistically, most motorcycle accidents are not actually the fault of the motorcyclist but of the driver of the other vehicle. In a large percentage of cases the other driver was simply unable to see the motorcycle. The driver of the other vehicle may try to blame the motorcyclist for causing or contributing to the accident. Often times, there are claims that the motorcyclist was speeding or swerving in and out of traffic. Therefore, it is important that these cases are handled with great care and attention to detail.
In cases where the driver of the motorcycle is killed, or knocked unconscious, it may be necessary to retain the expertise of an accident re-constructionist to assist in reconstructing how the accident happened. Friedland & Associates has experience handing motorcycle accidents.
