Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

As any experienced motorcycle rider already knows, there’s a fair amount of danger that comes with the thrill. Even when safety precautions are taken, the fact of the matter is that the road must still be shared with a wide variety of other drivers. In fact, there’s a good chance you’ve already found yourself having to ride defensively around car and truck drivers who don’t seem to be watching at all for motorcyclists. Perhaps you’ve even come close to getting in an accident, or maybe you’ve already gotten into one. But the truth of the matter is that there are actions you can take against the drivers who put you in harm’s way. This is where a motorcycle accident lawyer comes in.

Motorcycle Accidents as a Result of Dangerous Driving

If you own and ride a motorcycle regularly, chances are that you take it seriously. Motorcycles are both a more fun and more cost-effective alternative to regular passenger vehicles, but the truth is that other drivers on the road don’t usually realize this. In fact, while you may love your motorcycle and have a close relationship with it, many truck and car drivers are simply trying to get from point A to point B and don’t pay much attention to what’s going on around them. Unfortunately, this can put you at great danger no matter how seriously you take riding.

Nevertheless, distracted driving is one thing; the truth is that there are many types of dangerous driving that can result in you getting into an accident:

  • Driving Under the Influence (Drugs and/or Alcohol)
  • Driving Over the Speed Limit
  • Tailgating (Driving Too Close to You or Other Drivers)
  • Failure to Adhere to Stop or Yield Signs
  • Changing Lanes without Looking First

Get the Compensation You Deserve

Keep in mind that while other drivers have seatbelts, airbags and a general structure around them to help keep them protected in a collision, you have none of that. It’s not necessarily pleasant to think about, but you need to take into account the fact that as a motorcyclist you can get much more seriously injured than any other driver out there on the road. While you can seek payment for a wide variety of damages, some of the more common ones are the following:

  • Medical Costs (Including Subsequent Therapy and Rehabilitation Bills)
  • Pain and Suffering (Physical and / or Emotional)
  • Lost Wages or Earnings
  • Property Loss or Damage
  • Paralysis (Either full or partial)
  • Loss of a Limb

If your livelihood and / or general quality of life has been negatively affected by the accident, it is imperative that you take action now to get the compensation you may be owed. It may be too late to reverse the accident, but it’s not too late to start getting yourself– and your life– back in the right direction.

Filing a ‘Wrongful Death’ Suit

Going along with the above, it is important that you know that if one of your loved ones is killed as the result of a motorcycle accident, you may have grounds for what is known as a wrongful death lawsuit. While no amount of money can ever bring your loved one back, you may be awarded compensation that can help you handle any lingering medical bills, funeral expenses, loss of future income (especially if you were a dependent) or even help you manage the subsequent personal trauma that can result. Please do not hesitate to reach out to an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer today to learn more and to find out what kind of compensation you may be owed.
