Lawyers Fighting For The Rights Of Motorcycle Accident Victims
Motorcycle owners know that there is something irresistible about the community, lifestyle and thrill a motorcycle offers. However, all motorcycle owners are also all too aware that these advantages do not come without significant risks. Motorcycle riders do not have to look up the statistics to know that too many motorcycle accidents are caused by the irresponsibility, carelessness, or even bad intent of automobile drivers.

What Actions Or Negligence Led To Your Crash?
When it comes down to it, most two-vehicle motorcycle accidents can be attributed to a driver’s failure to notice a motorcyclist and/or to give motorcyclists the same deference they would give to other drivers. Examples include:
- Tailgating or following too closely
- Failing or refusing to yield the right of way
- Passing a rider without leaving an adequate safety buffer
- Cutting off a motorcyclist when passing
- Driving aggressively, speeding or otherwise violating traffic laws
Do any of these sound like what happened to you? If so, please speak to our attorneys about your litigation options.
Other Hazards Commonly Leading To Crashes
Many of these circumstances are avoidable. Motorcyclists know that the delicacy of control required to steer their vehicle means that unsafe road conditions can spell hazard. If a road is improperly maintained during treacherous weather conditions, and it can be proven that a government entity knew of the conditions and failed to respond, that entity can be held responsible for the crash. Other times, crashes may be caused by a faulty gear, brake, or tire on the motorcycle itself. In these cases, the manufacturer holds the blame and should be held liable. Other times, it is the motorcyclist who is at fault. In these cases, passengers on the motorcycle who have been injured are entitled to take legal action to preserve their rights and claim compensation.
