Joyriding down the highway on your motorcycle can be exhilarating. It can also be dangerous. Every year, there are thousands of motorcycle accidents in the United States and when an accident happens, there is a reported 80% chance of injury or death on a motorcycle compared to about 20% for passenger vehicles.
The fact is... most drivers don't have a lot of experience with motorcycles and know nothing about how they stop, turn, etc. Drivers are used to sharing the road with other cars, but less familiar with how to safely share the road with motorcycles.
If you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle accident, you need an experienced accident attorney with years of motorcycle accident cases on your side.
But what about helmets? Perhaps unsurprisingly, more than 50% of motorcyclists who are killed in motorcycle accidents are NOT wearing helmets, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
