Understanding Motorcycle Accidents
There are many reasons a motorcycle wreck may occur. For one, it can happen from a car or truck driver failing to notice motorcyclists and pull out in front of them at side roads or intersections. Motorists also endanger cyclists with risky driving behavior, such as:
Following a motorcycle too closely.
Failing to properly check for motorcyclists while making a lane change.
Failing to account for how quickly the motorcycle is approaching an intersection.
When a motorcycle accident does occur, the results can be catastrophic. Experts estimate that 80% of motorcycle accidents result in death or serious injury including:
Traumatic brain injury
Spinal cord injury
Leg and foot injuries
If you operate a motorcycle, you should take all precautions to protect yourself and observe road rules. If you have suffered from a motorcycle accident, Dyer Law is here to help you get the compensation you deserve for damages and injuries caused through the negligence of other motorists. We will fight for you from beginning to end because you are more than just a client to us.
