Motorcycle Accidents

The majority of motorcycle injury and fatality accidents involve another vehicle. In 2016, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety reported 60% of almost 5,000 motorcyclist fatalities were in multi-vehicle crashes. Due to their vulnerability, motorcycle riders are more likely to be injured when a vehicle crash occurs, and the injury severity can be higher. When other drivers on the road cause these motorcycle injury accidents, they can be held liable for damages through a personal injury claim.

Many motorcycle riders are very conscientious of safety when on the road. They are careful to stay visible to other drivers and follow the rules of the road. However, other drivers are not always as careful. In many motorcycle accidents involving other drivers, the drivers claim to have not seen the motorcycle. Left hand turns that collide with an oncoming motorcycle are the most common type of multiple-vehicle motorcycle accident, and is almost always the fault of the turning driver.

Motorcycle Fatality Accident Claims

Many serious injuries can occur in a motorcycle accident. Head injuries, spine/back injuries and fractures are common non-fatal injuries that affect motorcyclists. Unfortunately, fatalities are more likely to occur in motorcycle accidents than other types of vehicle accidents. The Governors Highway Safety Association estimates that per mile driven, motorcyclists are 28 times more likely to be fatally injured in a crash.

When a motorcycle injury or fatality accident occurs, police reports can be helpful in determining who was at fault. However, injured motorcyclists and their families should also have a personal injury attorney on their side to begin investigating all the facts. If the other driver was negligent and caused the accident, they may be liable for medical bills, lost wages and other damages.

    My family and I met Attorney Dwayne Brown after the unfortunate accident involving my niece. Attorney Brown did an exceptional job representing my family. He was the consummate professional, and treated my family with the utmost dignity and respect. As a result of his representation, my family was able to achieve a substantial settlement in our case. Although we obviously did not get our loved back, we are prayerful that we met Attorney Brown. My family would highly recommend Attorney Brown to anyone in a similar situation.

    An excellent and professional lawyer. He took on a car accident case on my behalf, worked with me from across the country, and was just as vigorous in his pursuit of justice on day 912 as he was on day 1.
