MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS - Motorcycle Accident Attorneys Understand a Rider's Unique Needs. 

Workers who find motorcycles more economical and quicker for daily commutes have joined motorcycle enthusiasts who ride for pleasure. This increases the number of motorcycles on the streets and highways. Accordingly, motorcycle accident fatalities have risen each year for the last ten years. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that more than 5,000 people died in motorcycle-involved accidents in 2007. That is the highest number of deaths since the collection of data began in 1975, and the numbers represent a 6.6 percent increase over fatalities in 2006.

Nationally, the death rate in 2007 for motorcyclists was 6 times the rate of death for car occupants. And of the more than 7 million registered motorcycles on the road that same year, there were over 123,000 motorcycle-involved crashes resulting in death, injury or property damage.

Some states post even greater contrasts between automobile and motorcycle accidents. In Colorado, motorcycles represent about 3 percent of registered vehicles, yet in 2008 motorcycle deaths represented 18 percent of Colorado’s traffic fatalities.

There can be many causes of motorcycle accidents that may include:

  • Negligence by other drivers
  • Defective streets or highways 
  • Roadway obstructions 
  • Adverse weather 
  • Improperly marked intersections 
  • Motorcyclist error

Injuries sustained in motorcycle accidents can be catastrophic. There is far less physical protection for a motorcyclist than for the occupants of an enclosed vehicle. Some unique injuries associated with motorcycle accidents include:

  • Road burn of the skin 
  • Disfigurement of the exposed face 
  • Multiple compound fractures 
  • Traumatic head or spinal cord injuries 
  • Lost limbs 
  • Impact injuries to internal organs

Injuries may not always be readily apparent following a motorcycle-involved accident, and adverse symptoms may develop over time. Delayed action following an accident can limit or even eliminate otherwise pursuable causes of action. Motorcycle accidents may have far-reaching repercussions. Immediate assistance from a qualified motorcycle accident lawyer who has intimate knowledge of the many unique elements of motorcycle crashes can protect motorcycle accident victims from further harm. Follow these guidelines to protect current or future claims. 

  1. Seek legal advice immediately and follow the attorney’s advice 
  2. Do not sign anything without legal representation 
  3. Seek immediate medical assistance
  4. Keep records of events associated with the accident 

An injured victim is in danger of waiving all legal rights if he or she disregards the above guidelines.
