Have you been in a motorcycle accident?
If so, maximize your compensation through professional legal representation. Get with our experienced motorcycle accident lawyers..
Approximately three-quarters of all motorcycle accidents involve collisions or near-collisions with a car or truck on the road. Much smaller in size and weight than other motor vehicles, motorcycles are often overlooked or unnoticed by other drivers on city streets and state highways. The result can be a collision of catastrophic nature, resulting in a lifetime of medical bills and emotional suffering.
The amount of time you have to file a claim is limited, so do not wait to call our office.
Our legal team is available to discuss your case 24/7!
The discrepancy in size and weight between motorcycles and other automobiles often puts motorcyclists at a much higher risk of injury or fatality. Given the fact that many of these accidents are the result of a defective vehicle part and/or a negligent automobilist, legal action should be taken on behalf of the injured rider.

What are the most common types of motorcycle accidents?
Motorcycle riders know all too well that cars often drive recklessly or negligently around them. Though motorcycles may be smaller, they still have equal rights on the road and should be given the proper following distance and attention that other vehicles receive. Unfortunately, many drivers do not give full attention to the road, resulting in irresponsible driving that can often lead to accidents.
The most common types of motorcycle accidents include the following:
- Blind spot collision
- Left-turn accidents
- Motorcycle defect accidents
- Rear-end collision
- DUI accidents
- Most motorcycle crashes involve other vehicles and, as statistics prove:
- 78% of motorcycle accidents are head-on collisions
- 42% of motorcycle accidents with other cars occur when the car is turning left
- 5% of motorcycle accidents are rear-end crashes
- Obstructions on the roads or poorly designed highways are also common reasons for motorcycle accidents. Determining who is at fault for your accident can be challenging.

When it comes to travel, there is nothing quite like the exhilaration of cruising the open road on a motorcycle. What motorcycles lack in safety, they make up in fuel efficiency, agility and maneuverability. But unfortunately, motorcycles can still be dangerous, especially in the company of other drivers who fail to keep an eye out for motorcyclists.
According to the latest data from the NHTSA, motorcyclists are about 27 times as likely as passenger car occupants to die in a motor vehicle accident, and about six times as likely to be injured.
