Motorcycle accidents are 35 times more likely to result in a fatality than any accident involving a passenger car.

Our staff of lawyers is dedicated to ensuring that you receive the high-quality legal representation you deserve, and we fight to recover the damages owed you for your injuries.
Medical bills can be devastating, especially if you require long-term care. We understand what you are going through and know how to guide your case toward the proper resolution.
What causes motorcycle accidents?
It takes a skilled rider to safely maneuver a motorcycle, but even the most seasoned cyclist isn’t safe from other negligent drivers on the road. You can be involved in a range of different types of motorcycle accidents, especially on a crowded highway.
These potential dangers include:
- Reckless driving — The chances of a serious accident are always higher anytime the driver of a car or motorcycle drives recklessly. This includes weaving in and out of lanes, failing to signal, failing to brake or any other act that puts other drivers in harm’s way.
- Speeding — People are always vulnerable to danger when other drivers are speeding, and the danger increases when a motorcycle is involved. For riders, a speeding car can cause debilitating injuries if it strikes you. And for drivers in cars, a speeding motorcycle can be equally as dangerous.
- Drugs and alcohol — The chances of getting into an accident always increase when other drivers are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. We examine the police reports from the scene and any drug or alcohol tests taken after the crash to help establish negligence of the responsible party.
- Road hazards — Potholes, loose construction equipment and debris from truck cargo pose a life-threatening risk to motorcyclists on busy roads. Our auto accident lawyers go after those responsible if you have suffered serious injuries due to unavoidable road hazards.
