Personal Injury Lawsuits After a Motorcycle Accident

Riding a motorcycle is more dangerous than riding in a passenger vehicle. It has become even more dangerous given the increase in driver distractions such as cell phones, navigation systems, and in-car entertainment units.

Drivers of passenger vehicles frequently fail to safely navigate around motorcycles in their vicinity, especially when distracted. Motorcycle accidents are dramatically different than other types of traffic accidents in that the likelihood of severe injury or death is very high, no matter how forceful the collision.This is due to a number of factors, including:

  • Little to no protection for the rider in the event of an accident
  • Riders being thrown into traffic or onto the road
  • Riders striking vehicles or other objects when ejected

It is estimated that 80% of all motorcycle accidents involve the rider being injured or killed; 18% of those injured suffer some manner of permanent disability and 10% experience injuries that leave them paralyzed, such as severed spinal cords and fractured vertebrae.
