Motorcycle Accidents Lawyer
While automobile accidents present a significant risk of harm, the light weight of a motorcycle and lack of metal encasing the driver makes motorcyclists more prone to serious injury or death. The lack of protection motorcycle riders face often causes detrimental injury, disability, or fatality in the event of an accident. Additionally, recovery for victims of a motorcycle accident is usually longer than for an automobile accident. Many times, motorcycle collisions are borne out of other drivers’ negligence. Reckless driving from another driver can be anything from a minor annoyance to a dangerous hazard for other cars. For motorcyclists, irresponsible driving can very easily turn fatal. Whether another driver stops too quickly in front of you, misjudges your speed, or fails to yield to you, accidents caused by negligence justify compensation from responsible parties.
Involvement in a motorcycle accident is a serious, life-threatening, and frightening experience. These injuries often involve spinal cord injuries, neck and head trauma, and bone fractures, among other severe damages. The impassioned team of lawyers at Mokaram Law Firm understands the financial burden and physical rehabilitation likely to result from a motorcycle collision. We are dedicated to lessening as much financial burden as possible on your path to healing.
Unique Hazards Faced by Motorcyclists
Motorcyclists are often more cautious and aware of their surroundings than automobile drivers, due to additional challenges they face on the road. Road hazards unique to motorcycle riders may include:
- A lack of visibility to other drivers
- Adverse weather affecting bikers to a larger degree
- Debris, uneven roads, potholes, slippery pavement, large rocks
- Lack of seat belts, air bags, or metal protection
- Front wheel “wobble”
- Less stability during emergency braking and swerving
- A lack of necessary skill from inexperienced riders
When a driver fails to exercise reasonable caution in regard to motorcyclists and the additional challenges they face on the road, the result can be calamitous.
