To many individuals, riding a motorcycle is extremely enjoyable. However, motorcycles are also the most hazardous of all vehicles on the roadways today and account for many fatalities. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), a motorcyclist is 15 times more likely to die in a crash than a car or truck driver who is involved in an automobile accident.
At Paris & Chaikin, PLLC, we are experienced motorcycle crash lawyers who are ready and willing to guide you through the legal maze of recovering compensation after an accident. You can count on us to fight for you to the end in pursuit of the full amount of money you will need to cover your current bills and future expenses.
Negligence-Related Causes Of Crashes
It is hardly surprising that motorcycle riders are more susceptible to catastrophic injuries than are other motorists. While the body of a car or truck offers some physical protection, motorcycle riders have no shield. Such serious injuries may be caused by:
- Other negligent drivers
- Defective roadway design
- Defective bike parts
- Debris left behind from roadway construction
- Other hazards
Standing Up To The Insurance Companies
To add insult to injury, insurance companies argue that motorcyclists are generally more careless than other vehicle operators. Based on this misconceived view, insurance companies refuse to offer just compensation for the injuries sustained by many motorcyclists.
