Owning a motorcycle in the US means you are able to enjoy the open road in an entirely unique way. While the majority of motorcycle rides happening every day are safe excursions, sometimes motorcycles can become involved in very serious motor vehicle accidents. To find out if you have a case to pursue compensation following a motorcycle accident, please call the experienced accident lawyers at Clark & Clark at 732-303-7857 .
Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents
Even if you are confident in your skills as an experienced, responsible motorcycle rider, the fact is that someone else's negligence and careless driving can cause you to be injured in an accident, through no fault of your own. The common causes of these types of motorcycle accidents are:
- Turning in front of a motorcycle
- Failing to give a motorcycle full use of the width of the lane
- Following a motorcycle too closely
- Misjudging the speed of a motorcycle
- Failing to yield the right-of-way to a motorcycle
- Driving aggressively in response to a motorcycle's presence
- Distracted driving and texting
When someone else's poor driving leads to an accident involving your motorcycle, you deserve to be properly and fully compensated. Let our attorneys deal with the insurance companies so you don't have to. During your free consultation, we will explain how we can handle your case and what options you have moving forward.
Motorcycle Accidents and Catastrophic Injuries
Motorcycle accidents cause all manner of serious and lasting physical injuries, such as:
- Injuries to the head and brain
- Injuries to the neck, back and spine
- Loss-of-limb injuries
- Scarring and disfigurement
Tragically, many serious motorcycle accidents result in death. Motorcycles offer virtually nothing in the way of protection, so someone who is ejected from a motorcycle during an accident can easily suffer fatal injuries. Our attorneys handle wrongful death claims in the event you lost a loved one in an accident.
In accident cases, we seek to recover compensation that will help make your life whole again. Medical bills and lost wages are just a couple of the things that can be compensated. We investigate how the injury and accident has impacted your life so that we can build the most strategic case for you.
