Motorcyclists are required to have special training in order to qualify for a motorcycle license. Unfortunately, all of the training might not be enough to prevent an accident with an irresponsible motorist. The often serious damages caused by motorcycle accidents make it extremely important for a personal injury attorney to be involved and fighting for the injured party. If you or someone you know was involved in a motorcycle accident, an attorney at our law office can talk to you about what you can do to recover fair compensation for medical care and other losses you might be dealing with.
According to information compiled by the National Highway Safety Transportation Administration, motorcyclists are about 35 times more likely than an occupant in a motor vehicle to suffer fatal injuries in an accident, and eight times more likely to suffer catastrophic injuries. Colliding with a much heavier vehicle places the motorcyclist at risk for severe injuries. Motorcycles can be more difficult to see than a passenger vehicle and can more easily be lost in a car's blind spots. If you or a loved one have been injured in a motorcycle accident, it is very important that you contact a motorcycle injury attorney at our office without delay to ensure that your rights are protected.
