Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

No fee unless we win
we work hard for you

At Lawscape we know the exhilarating feeling of riding on your motorcycle on a sunny day. We also know the pain that motorcycle operators experience after they’ve been involved in an accident.

From financial losses to physical pain, the consequences of getting in a motorcycle accident can have long-term effects on your life. That’s the reason motorcycle operators should be aware of situations that can cause motorcycle accidents and how to prevent them.

How Do Motorcycle Accidents Occur?
Motorcycle accidents are caused by several factors. From faulty motorcycle equipment to driver error, there is no shortage of ways for drivers to get injured in an motorcycle accident.

When it comes to motorcycle accidents, the statistics are startling. According to a recent study by the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, more than 5,300 people will lose their lives due to fatal injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident.
These are a few reasons motorcycle accidents happen.

1. People drive too fast on highways and side streets. The primary reason for posted speed limits is to keep drivers and passengers safe. When motorcycle operators and vehicle drivers disobey the speed limit, the chances of collisions increase.

2. Poor weather conditions and bad roads. Motorcycles are lightweight modes of transportation. Unlike cars, trucks and SUVs, motorcycles can weigh less than 500 pounds. Motorcycles aren’t built to handle potholes, wet pavement or icy concrete.

3. People consume alcohol (or drugs) and operate their cars or motorcycles. Drugs and alcohol can cause poor judgement. Most of the time when people habitually consume these substances, they aren’t aware of how they affect their judgment. As a result, their ability to avoid a collision is severely compromised by the substances.

4. Some motorcycle drivers operate their vehicles in a reckless manner. While it’s true that the majority of motorcycle operators drive their vehicles responsibly, there are a few reckless operators on the road. Illegal lane changes, speeding and tailgating contribute to many accidents.

5. Novice drivers operate cars and motorcycles with very little experience. At one time or another, every person on the road was an inexperienced driver. However, this doesn’t negate the fact that inexperience can cause drivers to make decisions that lead to accidents.

Motorcycle Safety Tips
Although motorcycle accidents aren’t 100 percent preventable, there are some actions that you can take to help you remain safe while you’re operating your motorcycle.

1. Wear your helmet at all times. The unfortunate reality is only the District of Columbia and 19 other states make it mandatory for motorcycle riders to wear helmets. Helmets can reduce your chances of sustaining a head injury by 37 percent. When it comes to preventing head injuries caused by motorcycle accidents, you have to make wise decisions.

2. Obey the speed limit. Resist the urge to test the limits of your motorcycle. Though your motorcycle can go up to 150 miles per hour, you shouldn’t operate it at high speeds. Not only could you lose control of the motorcycle and injure yourself, you could injure other people.

3. Follow your vehicle’s maintenance and replacement schedule. Your manual provides maintenance and replacement guidelines that, if followed, may prevent your motorcycle from malfunctioning. This is especially true when it comes to your brakes and tires.

4. Never operate your motorcycle in another vehicle’s blind spot. If you travel on the side of large trucks or cars, it can be difficult for vehicle operators to see you. Always drive in front or in back of other vehicles. Be sure to travel at a safe distance away from other cars.

Experienced Motor Cycle Accident Lawyers
Whether you practice these safety tips or not, motorcycle accidents are bound to happen. If you’ve been involved in a motorcycle accident, take the following steps.

Even if you haven’t been injured and your motorcycle is operable, stay on the scene. Never leave a scene of an accident before a police officer has arrived.

If you’re able to walk, go to a safe area and call the police and an ambulance. Ask someone to call the police for you if you’ve sustained an injury.

Contact your insurance company and a motorcycle accident attorney. You may need to obtain legal representation.
