No Fee or Costs unless Successful
The number of motorcycle accidents throughout the United States continues to remain high but the reasons for them are often misconstrued. The fact is that most motorcycle accidents take place because of the negligence of automobile drivers or because of debris and unsafe road conditions.
Unfortunately, the stigma associated with motorcycle riders is so established that many insurance companies, juries and judges tend to be biased against the cyclist rather than the person who actually caused the motorcycle accident to happen in the first place.
"I just didn't see the biker": Most motorcycle accidents involve vehicles in which the driver wasn't paying attention and didn't see the biker and therefore failed to yield the right of way.
Rear-end collisions: Serious injuries can result when a car rear ends a motorcycle, because they misjudged distance or failed to see the biker on the road. Even minor rear end collisions can be deadly if the force pushes the biker into oncoming traffic.
U-turns and sudden lane changes: Car drivers looking for parking spots brake suddenly, cross lanes of traffic without warning and make unexpected U-turns. With little time to react and nowhere to go, motorcyclists end up injured and are often unfairly blamed for the accident.
Improper obstructions: Sometimes property owners will put chains or ropes across trails that they don't want used by off-road bikers. Bikers who don't see the ropes until it's too late suffer serious injuries. Property owners have a duty to warn bikers about obstructions.
Single-bike accidents: can be the result of road hazards or defective equipment. Usually, the police report blames the biker for a single-bike accident, but an experienced attorney will investigate further.
