Motorcycle Accident Questions
- How dangerous are motorcycles?
While motorcycles can be a fun way to enjoy the outdoors and a fuel efficient way to get around, the number of motorcycle accident fatalities and injuries has increased every year since 2008. Per mile traveled, motorcyclists are about 37 times more likely than car occupants to die in traffic accidents. Riders under age 20 and over age 50 are most at risk of suffering fatal injuries in motorcycle accidents.You can find the most up-to-date motorcycle and car accident statistics on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s website.
- Will I have to file a lawsuit to get money for my motorcycle accident?
Not necessarily. If the parties responsible for causing your injury and their insurance companies offer you a fair, reasonable amount of compensation to cover the expenses related to your accident, you may not have to sue them. We’ll discuss their offer with you and decide if it’s in your best interests to accept their offer. However, if they lowball you, refuse your claim, deny responsibility, or try to downplay the true costs of your injuries, we’ll take them to court and stand by you every step of the way.
