Motorcycle Accidents are NOT the same as other vehicles
If you are injured in a motorcycle accident, the unfortunate truth is that are far more likely to be seriously injured than if you were riding in an enclosed vehicle—like a passenger car, SUV, or truck. Motorcycles:
- Do not have seat belts
- Do not have air bags
- Do not have as much metal as other vehicles to protect the rider
- Do frequently cause their rider to be thrown in a crash
Even with the most careful rider wearing their helmet, padded clothing, and leather exterior clothes can find themselves badly hurt after a collision. Broken bones, concussion and brain injury, abrasion to exposed skin from asphalt, concrete, or burns from hot motorcycle engine parts. Even death. Motorcycle riders have the right to ride the highways, but in an accident with a car, the playing field becomes unequal. That’s where a motorcycle injury lawyer can help.
Responsibility for a motorcycle crash? You have to prove it.
If you are the injured party after a motorcycle accident, you need to realize that the insurance company of the person who hit you will take witness statements, hire investigators to visit the scene, and try to settle with you as quickly and cheaply as possible if it seems evident their insured was at fault. Hiring a motorcycle accident attorney can help level the playing field and secure your rights as the injured party.
There are many factors to consider in a motorcycle crash with a car or truck
Motorcycles are not as easily visible as a car or truck. There could have been rain, or construction, or sun in the driver’s eyes, or perhaps they were not wearing their corrective lenses. They may have been driving while impaired—perhaps distracted by texting. An attorney may be able to determine that the operator of the 4 wheeled vehicle was acting carelessly, or violating the rules of the road. Depending on the conditions at the time of the accident, even a car or truck driving below the speed limit and otherwise obeying traffic laws could be determined to be liable. Your motorcycle injury lawyer can help to prove it.
Have you or a loved one been injured in a motorcycle accident?
If you or a loved one has been injured while riding a motorcycle, you can receive compensation not only for the damages suffered, but for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages from work as well. Some serious injuries from a crash on a motorcycle may impair the victim for years or even a lifetime, so before you speak with an insurance company, the attorneys at Thomas and Pearl want to speak to you.
