Aggressive Representation for Injured Motorcycle Riders

Motorcycles have become a popular form of transportation and recreation. Unfortunately, motorcycle riders face the highest risks of suffering injuries and death during accidents. Statistics show that motorcycle riders suffer injuries in 98% of accidents that involve cars or trucks. Even when motorcycle accidents involve only riders, the results can be devastating.

Some of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Driver error and negligence, including left-hand turns (42% of all accidents)
  • Road departures and hazardous road conditions
  • Aggressive driving
  • Drunk driving accidents
  • Distracted driving
  • Defective motorcycle parts

Motorcycle accidents are not only caused by collisions. Sometimes another driver can cause a motorcyclist to crash without ever striking the motorcycle. For example, if someone driving a passenger car fails to see the motorcycle and cuts it off, the motorcyclist may be forced to veer off the road, resulting in an accident.

Riders face constant dangers on public roads and highways, and when they suffer damages at the hands of others, riders have the right to be fairly compensated.

Motorcycle Accidents and Insurance Issues

While many riders may believe that insurance companies will fairly compensate them for their damages, the unfortunate reality is that claimants face numerous challenges when filing personal injury claims. As insurance companies are in the business to collect premiums, they often do everything in their power to pay victims as little as possible.

Insurance providers will commonly dispute claims and attempt to capitalize on negative rider stereotypes in order to deflect fault away from drivers who cause accidents. When this is the case, our attorneys fight back against insurance companies.
