All motorists are reminded to safely “share the road” with motorcycles and to be attentive on the road.  This is because motorcycle accidents often result in more severe and sometimes fatal injuries.  A motorcycle simply does not provide the same protection or stability as that of an automobile.  Some of the more common injuries sustained are spinal cord injuries, disfigurement, fractured bones, traumatic brain injury, and death.   

Motorcycle Accident Claim

Motorcyclists are considered "vulnerable road users" who may be afforded additional protections under the law.  Vulnerable road users are at greater risk than vehicle occupants and can sustain greater injuries. If you have been injured in while operating a motorcycle you may have a claim for the following elements of damages (past & future):

  • Medical Expenses 
  • Lost Wages
  • Pain and suffering / Mental Anguish
  • Physical Impairment
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of consortium 

Common Causes for Accidents

  • Failure to Keep a Proper Lookout: Motorcycles are smaller vehicles and often overlooked by motorists.
  • Failure to Maintain an Assured Clear Distance/Following too Closely
  • Head-on Collisions
  • Cars Making Left-Hand Turns: Vehicles often strike motorcycles when they are going straight through an intersection, passing or trying to overtake.
