According to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over 50% of motorcycle accidents resulting in death involve another vehicle. Motorcyclists are also 35 times more likely to suffer fatal injuries. These statistics are expected to rise with the increasing role cell phone use plays in our everyday lives. Despite texting and driving laws, cell phones continue to play a significant role in the number of accidents involving motorcycles. Victims and their families have a right to make a claim against these negligent actions of the other driver.
As a result of unfair stereotypes, bikers injured in motorcycle accidents usually have a more difficult time seeking fair compensation when compared to other accident victims. Hire an experienced attorney to help you with all aspects of your claim.
