Motorcycle accidents can be devastating and, oftentimes, fatal. With no barriers between the rider and the road or another vehicle, accidents tend to cause severe injuries. To make matters worse, motorcycles are less visible to other cars and trucks and are easily hidden by other objects on the road. Collisions, debris, uneven road surfaces and even wet pavement can cause a motorcycle to crash.

Unlike typical auto accidents, motorcycle accidents are typically far more dangerous. If you are involved in a motorcycle accident, the actions you take immediately after the incident and in the days that follow will have a significant impact on the outcome of your case.
Most motorcycle accidents are governed by negligence laws. In many cases, the driver of the vehicle is considered the negligent party. They may have sped through a red light, or failed to check their mirrors thoroughly before making a turn.
In some cases, the rider is at fault for the accident. For example, they may have been intoxicated, swerved and crashed into a car. To prove fault, you must have evidence that the other party was not careful and their actions caused the victim’s injuries.
