Choose the best and most knowledgeable motorcycle accident lawyer to represent you and your injury claim. We are aware that, contrary to popular belief, most motorcycle accidents are actually caused by negligent automobile drivers when 2 or more motorized vehicles are involved in the accident. We are aware of the statistics and we know what to look for at the accident scene to prove that the other driver is liable for your injuries.
Unfortunately, motorcycle accidents are extremely common (and they tend to produce devastating injuries to victims). According to the US Department of Transportation, there have been great improvements to motorcycle fatality rates in the past two decades, but the fatality rate of motorcyclists involved in accidents is still roughly 55-70%. Motorcyclists are 26% more likely than automobile operators to die when involved in accidents. If you operate a motorcycle and are involved in an accident, there is a significant likelihood that you may not survive the incident. While helmets are indisputably helpful for preventing some of the serious head injuries that commonly result in death, the estimated effectiveness rate of a helmet protecting its wearer from death is 37%.
We Care About Our Motorcycle Operators in WV
We care about our motorcycle operators in West Virginia. Although we cannot prevent motorcycle crashes and negligent drivers, we would like to pass along some common sense tips that you can take that will help to keep you safe on the road:
- Always wear a helmet! The life you save may be your own!
- Be aware of changing weather conditions and prepare accordingly
- Do not drive when impaired (tired, under the influence of alcohol or drugs, etc.)
- Keep your bike well maintained
- Make sure that your motorcycle operation skills are as good as possible before taking to the road (practice in parking lots until you are completely comfortable with all maneuvers before considering riding on the roads or highways)
- Make yourself and your bike as visible as possible (attach a flag, use/wear bright colors, etc.)
Unfortunately, no matter how cautious you are and how many precautions you take, there will always be negligent and careless drivers on the road alongside you who fail to see you and/or share the road and cause you to be injured.
If you are a motorcycle operator who has been injured or suffered property damage as a result of a negligent driver or a family member who has lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident, contact the motorcycle accident lawyer, David Sims and our office will help get you back on the road.
