Why Motorcycle Accidents Are So Dangerous

If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, you should contact a motorcycle accident lawyer that specializes in this field of personal injury, and has had years of experience. Traffic accidents involving motorcycles often cause more severe injuries because the rider has much less protection than the driver of a car or truck. Thousands of accidents involving motorcycles occur because motorists don’t yield to the riders. Severe injuries to the head and neck, spinal column, brain, shoulders, and knees happen as a result of careless drivers. Quite often the accidents are fatal, and the family of an accident victim needs legal representation that will recover damages.

A motorcycle accident lawyer is a necessity when you’ve been involved in an accident, because only 1 out of every 5 riders escapes with minor injuries. There are a number of causes of accidents involving motorcycles. The most common cause is that drivers of other vehicles don’t see the motorcycle, especially in heavy traffic. Motorcycle riders are more likely to sustain serious injuries or even die because they don’t have protection from the road that drivers of other vehicles have. Even when a rider is wearing protective easily seen gear, that sometimes isn’t enough to avoid a collision.

The statistics show that almost two thirds of all accidents involving motorcycles occur because a driver turns into the lane the rider is in, blocking his right of way. Statistics also show that a person riding a motorcycle is at least 27 times more likely to die as a result of a serious traffic accident than anyone in a car or truck. They are at least 5 times more likely to sustain at least minor injuries than anyone in another type of vehicle. It is imperative to consult a motorcycle accident lawyer when you have been involved in an accident as soon as possible.

Some riders who haven’t ridden a motorcycle for very long sometimes over estimate their skills when on the road. They often exceed the speed limit, which causes accidents. This also happens with experienced riders. When something unexpected happens, the rider doesn’t often have the time to react quickly enough to avoid a serious accident. In nearly 60 percent of all accidents which involve motorcycles, fuel spills that occur following the accident are a fire hazard and can cause further damage. If you are involved in an accident, call a motorcycle accident lawyer immediately.


 

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
