Staying Safe on the Road & Knowing Your Rights Under the Civil Justice System

The accident happened so quickly. One moment, you are enjoying your regular motorcycle ride. The next moment, you suddenly find yourself lying on the road or in a hospital bed. A driver wasn’t paying attention and hit you. Now, you are faced with physical pain and disability, mounting medical bills, and loss of your wages, among other life-impacting damages. You are a motorcycle accident victim.

The next steps you take are critically important. After a motorcycle accident or crash, it is vital to protect your rights by calling an attorney.

You probably have a lot of serious questions, such as:

  • Will I be able to recover full compensation for my injuries?
  • What does it take to hold the at-fault driver responsible?
  • How much does hiring a professional lawyer cost?

What Are the Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents and Risks Associated with Riding a Motorcycle?

It is no secret that motorcycle riders are depicted in popular films and on television as reckless riders with a death wish, but this is far from the truth. In actuality, the drivers of passenger vehicles are at-fault in the majority of motorcycle collisions, not motorcyclists.

The most common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Driver lacks awareness of the motorcycle on the road
  • Running a stop sign or red light without seeing an approaching motorcycle.
  • Failing to completely stop before turning right on red (i.e. “California stop”).
  • Distracted driving, texting while driving, or phone use.
  • Failing to check blind spots, or yield the right-of-way, before changing lanes.
  • Driving over the speed limit and therefore being unable to avoid a motorcycle collision.

Due to the stereotype of motorcyclists as reckless or speedy, hiring an experienced trial lawyer is in your best interest. The stereotype is particularly unfortunate when you consider that motorcycle riders involved in a crash are at a much higher risk of serious or fatal injury. The National Highway Traffic Highway Safety Administration reports that in 2012, the nation saw a 7% increase in fatalities and injuries caused by motorcycle accidents. Almost 5,000 bikers were killed because of such accidents, while over 93,000 were injured.

For motorcyclists, there is a fine line between a near miss and a catastrophic injury. Motorcycle riders are relatively unprotected from the force of a collision, the road surface, or roadside objects such as trees or poles. Even a minor rear-end collision can easily be fatal or result in life-long disability.

Everyone has a responsibility to share the road and follow safety regulations. Those who fail to do so not only endanger themselves, but everyone on the streets with them. Sweetser Law Office has been relentless is in our advocacy on behalf of injured motorcyclists, and educating the public about being aware of motorcyclists on the road. Our motorcycle attorneys continue to help injured riders, and if a death is involved their family members, to obtain the compensation to which they are entitled.
