Makkabi Law Group, among the nation's top personal injury law firms, has recovered $150,000,000 on behalf of its clients, including Motorcycle Accidents.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 96,000 motorcyclists were injured and 5,290 motorcyclists were killed in traffic accidents in 2008. While motorcycle accidents are not a numerous as car, they are significantly more dangerous. Because motorcyclists are not shielded by the same protective barriers as occupants of passenger vehicles, motorcycle accidents are more likely to result in serious injuries and fatalities than car accidents.

Motorcycle Accidents and Helmet Laws

Many of the fatalities from motorcycle accidents are the result of serious brain injury. These injuries are far more likely if the motorcyclist was not wearing a helmet. Helmets are mandated by law for all riders or riders under a certain age in some states. In states with mandatory helmet laws, failure to wear a helmet may have some impact on a motorcyclists personal injury claim for an accident. In some cases, failure to wear a helmet may be considered an act of negligence that could limit recovery for damages.

Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Most motorcycle accidents are not caused by the motorcyclists themselves. Rather, most motorcycle accidents are cased by motorists in other vehicles failing to see a motorcyclist or failing to yield the right of way to a motorcyclist.  Additional common causes for motorcycle accidents include:

  • Speeding
  • Aggressive driving
  • Bad weather
  • Improper braking and turning
  • Bad road conditions
  • Road hazards
  • Lane splitting
  • Alcohol-related accidents

Determining the cause of any motor vehicle accident is vital to establishing fault for the accident and seeking damages.
