Motorcycle accident victims need the help of attorneys who understand how these accidents happen, the types of injuries associated with motorcycle accidents, and the unique challenges involved in motorcycle accident cases. Some of the laws which apply to motorcycle accident cases are different to those which apply to auto accidents, but what really sets motorcycle accidents apart are elements you learn to handle only through experience. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, talk to a Tamara motorcycle accident attorney of Fenster & Cohen, P.A. today.
It is a known fact that a large portion of motorcycle accidents are caused by drivers who violate motorcyclist’s right of way. Unfortunately, the non-biking public tends to believe that bikers are reckless by nature and immediately assume that it was risky behavior on the part of the motorcyclist that caused the accident. The truth is that people in cars do not pay attention. They do not look for motorcycles.
Defective Motorcycles and Defective Roadways
Vehicle defects and roadway defects have a more pronounced effect, and are more likely to cause an accident, when you are on two wheels than when you are on four. Even though that sounds like basic common sense that anyone can understand, it can be challenging to prove that something like poor road design caused your motorcycle crash when cars have successfully navigated the same stretch of road for years.
Motorcycle accidents are more likely to cause very serious or fatal injuries than car accidents. Serious injuries can mean long-term expenses and loss of income, in addition to your existing damages. Motorcycle injuries may include:
- Brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Severe burns
- Severe road rash
- Back injury
- Broken bones and fractures
- Facial injuries
- Severe scarring
