Motorcycle Accident Attorney

motorcycle accidents

Currently there are more than 6.2 million motorcycle riders registered in the U.S. Motorcycles are an enjoyable and efficient mode of transportation and fun for many people. Yet they can also be quite dangerous.

One of the biggest safety threats to motorcyclists involves other drivers on the road. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcycle fatalities contribute to 11 percent of all highway fatalities each year. Given that motorcycles represent only 3 percent of all registered vehicles in the United States, this statistic is quite startling.

The higher rate of motorcycle accidents is influenced by a number of factors. Sometimes people do not understand how to drive safely near a motorcyclist. If drivers are reckless or careless near a motorcyclist, it can lead to a very serious and even life-threatening accident. If a motorcyclist is injured because of the negligent or careless actions of a car or truck driver, the driver should be held accountable. And the motorcyclist should receive compensation for injuries and damages.

If you or a loved one was injured in a motorcycle accident, you should seek out help from a law firm that has experience with motorcycle accident cases. Cooper and Friedman personal injury attorneys have been fighting for the rights of injury victims including motorcycle accident victims since 1991.

When to Contact a Motorcycle Accident Attorney

There are many different examples of situations when a motorcycle accident victim should contact a motorcycle accident attorney for legal help. Examples include times when a motorcycle accident is caused by a driver who breaks a fundamental safety rule like going above the speed limit, going through a red light, or taking a dangerous turn.

Motorcycle accident cases often require that a motorcyclist is able to show that an accident was caused by the negligence of another motorist. Whether a motorcycle accident case goes to court, or settles prior to trial, a motorcycle accident attorney can help you navigate the legal system and negotiate a fair settlement.

Motorcycle Accident Claims and Compensation

If a driver causes a motorcycle accident, he or she is expected to cover the costs of damages that result from their mistakes. Injured motorcycle drivers, passengers and/or surviving family members may be entitled to compensation in the event of an accident. This includes compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, distress, lost income and wages due to injuries, and in the event of serious accidents, wrongful death (including funeral and medical bills and more).

Compensation for some type of motorcycle accident claim varies greatly depending on the specific case. Consulting with an attorney that has experience with motorcycle accidents is advisable. This experience will help maximize your benefits.

The Cooper and Friedman Law Firm fights for your rights and helps you get the settlement you are entitled to receive. For a free case consult or more information about a motorcycle accident case, call 502-459-7555 now to speak with a motorcycle accident attorney.
