Motorcycle riders are extremely vulnerable to injury in any type of accident. They have little protection, even if they wear helmets and other protective gear. The bike is lightweight compared with other vehicles on the road. In an accident between a motorcycle and a car or truck, the motorcycle almost always loses and injuries to the rider can be catastrophic.

Causes Of Motorcycle Accidents
Many motorcycle accidents have very simple causes, such as the driver of the other vehicle failing to check the mirrors to make sure that there were no motorcycles traveling behind or to the side. When the driver of a car or truck does not see a motorcycle and changes lanes or stops suddenly, a catastrophic accident can result. Other causes include:
- Distracted or intoxicated drivers
- Poorly maintained roads
- Defective equipment on the other vehicle
Whatever the cause, our firm is committed to helping victims and their families obtain justice and compensation.
