You Deserve Compensation
Motorcyclists, or bikers, are extremely vulnerable while on the road, and all too often are on the defense while riding. Despite the biker’s skill in operating a motorcycle, accidents happen, and more often than not, the motorcyclist is the innocent victim of a car or truck driver’s negligence. Most drivers of standard vehicles are not aware of the motorcycle laws in place to protect motorcyclists. At Action Legal Group we are experts in motorcycle laws and riders rights, and have decades of experience in representing victims of motorcycle accidents. Our motorcycle injury lawyers can help you get the compensation you deserve.
Motorcycle Accidents Facts
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcyclists are 27 times more likely to be involved in a fatal accident and 6 times more likely to be injured, often times seriously, than in any other type of motor vehicle. Many of these accidents are not the fault of the motorcyclist, including:
- Failure of driver to observe a three-second cushion between the vehicle and motorcycle
- Failure of driver to detect the motorcyclist in blind spots or traffic
- Making a left-turn in front of the motorcycle
- Other vehicles violating the motorcycle’s right-of-way
- Hazardous road conditions
Injuries from motorcycle accidents can be catastrophic, resulting in high medical expenses, long-term or permanent disability, traumatic brain injury, or even death. Motorcycle injuries can also include:
- Road rash, as a result of slides along pavement or gravel
- Broken bones
- Permanent facial or body disfigurement
- Spinal injuries
- Permanent nerve or soft tissue damage
