MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT LAWYERS IN PHOENIX, ARIZONA
The motorcycle accident lawyers at the Schmidt Law Group work with motorcycle accident victims in Arizona to help them seek damages from negligent parties after a crash. Motorcycle riders are among the most vulnerable of all road users. Their low profile on the road makes it more likely that they’ll be missed by a distracted driver. Motorcycle riders are also not protected by the chassis of a vehicle, meaning that in a crash, they can be thrown from the motorcycle, or end up physically on the road. This can lead to traumatic head injury, spinal cord injury, road rash, and other serious internal injuries. Motorcycle riders are more at risk of suffering serious injury or death than other road users. When a driver makes a mistake behind the wheel, and hits a motorcyclist, it is often the motorcyclist who is most at risk of suffering serious injury.
If you or someone you love was hurt in a motorcycle accident due to the neglect or negligence of another driver, you and your family may be entitled to seek damages for medical costs, rehabilitation expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering losses. The motorcycle accident lawyers at the Schmidt Law Group in Arizona work closely with victims and families to help them seek compensation for their losses. Our motorcycle accident law firm can negotiate with insurance companies, fight negligent parties to help you get the settlement you may deserve, and work with you to help you move forward with your life after a devastating accident.
Consequences and Causes of Motorcycle Accidents in Arizona
The consequences of motorcycle accidents in Arizona can be very serious. There were nearly 3,000 motorcycle accidents in Arizona in one year, 130 of those resulted in death. According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration 80 percent of motorcycle accidents can result in the injury or death of the motorcycle rider. Many factors play a role in motorcycle accidents. Fewer than half of motorcycle crashes are single-vehicle accidents that can be attributed to inexperience and driver error. More often, the risk to motorcyclists involves other vehicles. The most dangerous situation is when a turning driver fails to see a motorcyclist. Because of the motorcycle’s smaller profile and due to increased distracted driving, motorcyclists are more at risk of being struck when a car is turning or changing lanes.
The reality is that many motorcyclists are highly-trained road users, who have often taken additional safety classes to keep themselves safe. Unfortunately, when drivers make mistakes, motorcyclists are often the ones who suffer. Drivers are becoming more and more distracted and are failing to be 100% alert of their surroundings which unfortunately increases the risk factor of using a motorcycle as a mode of transportation. When accidents do take place, drivers, police, and even insurance companies may sometimes have bias against motorcycle riders, believing that riders are some kind of risk-takers. The reality is that many motorcycle accidents are the result of error on the part of a passenger vehicle driver. If you were hurt due to the actions of another driver while riding your motorcycle, you may be entitled to seek damages for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and rehabilitation expenses.
