Our personal injury firm represents victims of vehicle accidents, including people hurt while riding a motorcycle, moped, or bicycle.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), a motorcyclist’s risk of a fatal crash is 35 times greater than a person traveling in a passenger car, and while only two percent of all registered vehicles in the United States are motorcycles, motorcycle fatalities represent approximately five percent of all highway fatalities each year. Even when accidents are not fatal, injuries can be significant, involving:
Concussion and brain damage
Broken bones and fractures
Soft tissue damage
Nerve damage, spinal cord injuries and paralysis
One of the primary reasons motorcyclists may be seriously hurt if they are involved in an accident is the lack of protection motorcycles provide in a crash. In the face of this danger, however, motorcycles are often affordable, fuel efficient, and provide a fun pastime for many people. Our firm supports the right of motorcyclists to share the roads with cars and trucks. When drivers fail to watch out for motorcycles and an accident results, we help motorcyclists receive maximum compensation for their injuries. We also handle wrongful death actions if you have lost a loved in a tragic accident.
Mopeds are even smaller and slower than motorcycles, but still must share the road with drivers of larger, faster vehicles who may fail to see them or become frustrated when following them. A driver may try to cut around a moped or simply come to close and cause an accident. Our attorneys have experience representing victims of moped accidents, always working to help our clients overcome an unfortunate situation with strong legal support.
Bike riding is both a popular recreational activity and means of transportation, especially in urban areas. Cyclists have the right to share roadways with cars and trucks and must also watch out for pedestrians when using public pathways, which presents ample opportunity for collisions and accidents. If a negligent or reckless driver causes an accident, or if an accident was caused by defective bicycle parts or unsafe riding conditions, we can help you recover compensation for your injuries.
