Motorcycle Accident Attorneys FAQ
Why do I need a motorcycle accident attorney?
Motorcycle accidents involve unique elements which can make them far different to other types of auto accidents. An experience motorcycle accident attorney knows what to look for and what to expect. Many are bikers themselves. Some of these elements include:
What causes motorcycle accidents?
Drivers who violate the motorcyclist’s right of way are responsible for about two-thirds of motorcycle accidents. This can cause a collision between the car and the motorcycle or it can cause the motorcycle to go off the road in a single vehicle accident. Unfortunately, in single vehicle accidents the driver who caused the accident is rarely caught and held responsible.
Motorcycle defects, defective roadways, bad weather, and obstacles in the road can all cause single vehicle motorcycle accidents, as well.
What should I do if I have been involved in a motorcycle accident?
After a motorcycle accident, you should follow the same steps you would take after any type of auto accident:
In a motorcycle accident you must wait to have your bike repaired until after your attorney as had it inspected and photographed. You may also have to allow the other driver’s insurance company to inspect it.
What are common injuries in motorcycle accidents?
Motorcycle accidents often result in severe or fatal injuries. Common injuries include:
I wasn’t wearing a helmet. Will that affect my case?
It may. Helmet laws vary from state to state, but failure to wear a helmet does not relieve the other driver of his or her responsibility, even if you violated the helmet law in your state. It may mean that you are entitled to reduced compensation.
