Motorcycle Accidents usually occur because of negligence and frequently result in unfortunate death or serious personal injury. Liability for accidents is generally determined using the rule that a less careful person involved in an accident must pay for at least some of the damages suffered by a more careful person. Common issues related to motorcycle accident litigation include traffic and registration law compliance, medical expenses, and liability determinations. Motorcycle accidents also involve unique insurance provisions. Motorcycle insurance is required by most states and can protect an injured rider against an underinsured or uninsured motorist.

More than 100,000 motorcyclists have died in traffic crashes since the enactment of the Highway Safety and National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966. Motorcycles made up 2 percent of all registered vehicles in the United States in 2000 and accounted for only 0.4 percent of all vehicle miles traveled. Per vehicle mile traveled in 2000, motorcyclists were about 21 times as likely as passenger car occupants to die in a motor vehicle traffic crash and 4 times as likely to be injured.

Per registered vehicle, the fatality rate for motorcyclists in 2000 was 4.1 times the fatality rate for passenger car occupants. The injury rate for passenger car occupants per registered vehicle was 1.2 times the injury rate for motorcyclists. In 2001, motorcyclists accounted for 8 percent of total traffic fatalities, 9 percent of all occupant fatalities, and 2 percent of all occupants injured.

Motorcycle accidents usually occur when a motorcycle collides with another motor vehicle. Two thirds of such accidents occur when the motorist fails to yield the right of way. Often, motorists insist that they didn’t see the motorcycle. This is particularly true when motorcycles are involved in trucking accidents due to vision restrictions or blind spots of the truck. In a number of situations, other parties may be liable to motorcyclists who are injured in motorcycle accidents. Due to the lack of protection for motorcycles, they may lead to fatal accidents that require a wrongful death law suit.

While in the immediate aftermath of a serious motorcycle accidents finding a lawyer may not be your first priority, you must recognize that the potential defendant has already notified his or her attorney and their insurance company. The insurance company has a team of lawyers whose job it is to minimize any payout to injured parties. While the victim is recovering, the defendant’s insurance company is out collecting valuable evidence to obtain witness statements. It is important to have a qualified personal injury attorney as soon as possible after an accident to protect your rights and win a claim.
