New York, New Jersey and Nationwide
Whether you yourself have been involved in a motorcycle accident or have lost a loved one to a motorcycle accident, you are probably struggling with emotional, physical, and even financial pain. Motorcycle accidents can be devastating, and they often leave their victims struggling to recover in all aspects of their lives. Especially if the accident was caused by another driver’s negligence, you may feel overwhelmed trying to decide on the next steps you should take.
Severity of Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle accidents have increased in number every year, especially in the summer months. Motorcyclists deserve the same consideration as other motorists, but motorcycles can be hard to see because of their small size and speed. Your motorcycle accident may have been the fault of another driver who:
- Was following too closely
- Failed to check mirrors before changing lanes
- Failed to signal before changing lanes
- Failed to yield
- Did not adhere to traffic signals
- Anticipated a light change
- Intentionally caused harm to a motorcyclist
Any of these actions may cause harm to a motorcyclist who is unable to avoid a collision with a negligent driver. Because motorcyclists are not protected as well as those in passenger vehicles, motorcycle accident injuries are likely much more severe than had the victim been in a car or truck at the time of the accident. However, your choice of vehicle does not exclude you from the right of way on roads.
