A Winning Attorney?
Many people choose to ride motorcycles for the symbol or the thrill, while others drive motorcycles because of the economic benefits. Although a motorcycle gets significantly more gas mileage than a car, it has one major disadvantage: safety. Since motorcycles are much smaller than an average vehicle, many drivers don’t see a motorcyclist until it is too late. Also, injuries sustained by motorcyclists in an accident tend to be far more severe since they do not have the benefit of airbags or a metal structure surrounding them like motorists do. As a result, they often require extensive medical treatment, which results in expensive medical bills. Hire an experienced motorcycle injury attorney from our firm today if you are facing such a situation.
CAUSES OF AZ MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS AND THE INJURIES INVOLVED
Most motorcycle accidents are caused by distracted or negligent drivers who change lanes or make turns without checking to see if a motorcyclist is approaching behind or beside them. Reckless drivers may weave through traffic and clip a motorcyclist as a result. Drunk drivers are also a main cause for such accidents. Whatever the cause, motorcyclists have very little protection in the event of a collision. Their helmet and protective clothing may save them from severe road rash or concussions, but broken bones are still very common, as are neck and back injuries.
Some collisions may even knock the helmet from a motorcyclist’s head, resulting in traumatic brain injury when their head contacts the pavement. If you or someone you love has been injured in a motorcycle accident, find out how a dedicated personal injury lawyer could help you fight for compensation.
