Experienced motorcycle accident attorney

Motorcycle accident injuries are often more severe than injuries from car accidents because motorcyclists have little protection from road and highway surfaces. If you were injured in a motorcycle accident by the fault of another you are entitled to compensation for your injuries and property damage. You can seek damages for past and future medical expenses, lost wages or loss of earning capacity, and your physical pain and suffering.

Avoiding motorcycles accidents and injuries

Wear a helmet. Wearing a helmet can greatly reduces the chance of a traumatic brain injury from a crash.

Do not assume you are seen. More often than not, a motorcycle accident occurs because the other vehicle did not see your motorcycle. Do not assume the other vehicle sees your motorcycle.

Get training. Obtain training in a professional motorcycle riding course. It could save your life.

Wear protective clothing. Your skin was not designed to rub against asphalt at high speeds. Protect yourself by wearing eye protection, a jacket, full- fingered gloves, long pants, and boots. Your clothing should be made of abrasion-resistant material, such as leather. Choose bright colors so that other motorists can see you.

Check Your Mirrors. Knowing what is around you at all times can save your life. Check your mirrors often.

Look Ahead For Road Hazards. Loose rocks, oil spills, holes, bumps and road debris are all things to be avoided.

Liability Insurance: If you are responsible for causing an accident, without insurance you put everything you own at risk. You are personally liable for injuries to others and damage to their property. Insurance liability coverage can also protect your passengers and compensate them for injuries. If you have insurance coverage, make sure you have as much underinsured/uninsured motorist coverage as you can get. More often than not, the at fault driver who caused your motorcycle accident will be underinsured (does not have enough insurance coverage to fully compensate you for your losses) or is uninsured.
