There is something about getting out on two wheels, engine revved up, and coasting down the open road. No matter the reason you enjoy your motorcycle, the law affords you the same rights to the open road as that of cars and trucks. However, every week thousands of people are hurt while enjoying their motorcycle on the open road.
Some of the main Causes of Motorcycle Accidents include:
Bad weather is a common cause of motorcycle accidents. Icy and wet roadways can impair handling and braking abilities. Potholes and other road hazards can also increase the risk of a motorcycle accident. Additionally, heavy traffic increases the risk of motorcycle accidents.
Drivers are often unable to see motorcycle riders. Collisions may also occur when drivers are changing lanes, speeding, or distracted.
Injuries to the motorcyclist can include:
- Traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries
- Severe fractures requiring multiple surgeries
- Organ damage requiring surgery
- “Road rash” leading to serious infection
Insurance Companies may not Help
Insurance companies are supposed to compensate people if they are injured in an accident. However, this is not always the case. Insurance adjusters often under-compensate people. That is why you need a qualified personal injury attorney like Dathan Hill.
You have a right to the road too, so invoke it. Don’t let an insurance company accuse you of riding in a motorist’s blind spot or coming out of nowhere when a motorist turns left in front of you. You’re under no legal duty to help that insurance company with its case, so don’t give it a written or recorded statement that it’s only going to try to use against you in the future. You need to contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
