Are You One Of The Many Injured On A Motorcycle?

In 2014 alone, 77 motorcyclists were killed in Virginia and 1,637 were injured in crashes. While these numbers only represent 11 percent of traffic fatalities and 3.9 percent of traffic-related injuries from that year, it's important to note that collisions involving motorcycles tend to have devastating effects on the motorcycle rider that far exceed those of a person driving a car. In 2015, things didn't get better: Motorcycle fatalities increased by 7.57 percent from 2014. In the United States as a whole, motorcycle accidents increased 10 percent between 2014 and 2015. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA), motorcycle riders have a 26-times greater fatality rate per mile driven than do drivers of passenger vehicles.

When The Worst-Case Scenario Comes To Life, We Are Here For You

Contrary to the public perception of motorcyclists as thrill-seekers, most bikers are safe and law-abiding on the roads. However, you cannot control other vehicles, and drivers are notorious for failing to share the roads with motorcycles. It only takes a split-second of distraction for a driver to bump, sideswipe or rear-end a motorcycle. Unfortunately, the outcome is often far more serious for the biker. You may end up with permanent, debilitating injuries.

When a collision occurs, drivers will often attempt to place the blame on the motorcyclist. Obtaining legal representation can help you fight back more effectively to obtain the compensation you deserve.
