Who Is At Fault in Most Motorcycle Accidents?

For too long, motorcyclists have been treated as second-class citizens when it comes to their right to the road. Under the law, however, motorcycles have the same right to the road as other vehicles. Far too frequently, motorcycles are involved in accidents simply because other drivers are not paying attention and fail to see them.

Some examples of how negligence can lead to motorcycle collisions include:

  • Motorists who are talking on cell phones, texting, or otherwise distracted
  • Dangerous road conditions, including unsafe road design, speed limits, and more
  • Drivers who are speeding, driving recklessly, or making unsafe/illegal driving maneuvers
  • Motorists who fail to check for motorcyclists before changing lanes
  • Car and truck drivers who turn into oncoming motorcyclists
  • Drivers and passengers who open parked car doors into the path of motorcyclists

Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents are far too frequently catastrophic or fatal due to a lack of protection. There are no restraints, no airbags, and no protective carriage, which puts bikers at significant risk. Our firm has the experience to defend the rights of those who have been harmed in motorcycle accidents and the family members of those killed in such collisions.

Can I Sue After a Motorcycle Accident?

Yes. Anyone who can prove that they have been wrongfully injured by a third party’s negligence can file a lawsuit against the responsible person or entity. If you have been hurt due to the carelessness or recklessness of a motorist, trucker, delivery driver, rideshare vehicle employee, city planning organization, or any other party, please don’t hesitate to explore your legal options for compensation.

Is It Worth Hiring a Motorcycle Accident Lawyer?

Because motorcycle accidents so often result in catastrophic injuries, victims typically require extensive medical treatment. This includes both immediate emergency care and ongoing treatment, such as surgeries, physical rehabilitation therapy, cognitive treatment, and more.

Common motorcycle accident injuries include:

  • Amputation/loss of limb
  • Broken bones
  • Facial scarring and disfigurement
  • Internal bleeding and other injuries
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Road rash
  • Spine and spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Wrongful death
  • And more

All of this can quickly become quite costly. When coupled with lost income/wages from taking time off work to receive this crucial care, the financial toll of a motorcycle accident can be immense. That is nothing to say of the physical and emotional toll of such an incident.

Here at Joye, Nappier, Risher, & Hardin LLC, our Myrtle Beach motorcycle accident lawyers are committed to helping you secure the maximum compensation you are owed from the liable parties. This can help you obtain the vital treatment you need to begin the healing process. We are happy to help you build your case and legal strategies while you focus on your recovery.
