The legal role of a motorcycle accident lawyer is similar to the one of a car accident lawyer in the fact that both of these personal injury lawyer types will deal with cases involving:
Both of these lawyers will be tasked with the duty of achieving adequate compensation for their clients or the victim’s family for injuries, damages or death that’s incurred during such an accident.
Motorcycle accident lawyers will handle many different types of cases involving motorcycle accidents, such as:
- Failure to Yield
- DUI’s (Driving Under the Influence)
- Hit and Runs
- Limited Visibility Collisions
- Rear End Collisions
- Stop Sign Accidents
- Defective Parts and/or Products
Motorcycle accident personal injury lawyers represent their clients that have been injured by an entity or other party while they were operating their motorcycle in order to help them recoup damages owed to them as a direct result of the negligence of another.
Furthermore, they’ll also represent those people that have been hit by someone driving a motorcycle. Most typically, the motorcyclist will be at fault if the accident is caused due to the rider:
- Operating Their Motorcycle While Under the Influence
- Following Too Closely
- Recklessly Riding
- Riding Without Experience
Whether you’re a motorcyclist that’s been the victim of the negligence of another or a victim that’s been a hurt by a negligent motorcyclist, it’s essential that you have the legal representation of an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer represent you to help your levels of success of winning the damages that you’re rightfully entitled to.
Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Although there are a lot of similarities between motorcycles and other motorized vehicles, there are specific features and performances to motorcycles that make them in a category all their own. As with man powered bicycles, the majority of all motorcycles run on two wheels, however, they have engines that are more powerful. This makes them faster to operate, which is part of the allure, yet they are a lot trickier to handle. As an example, most of the late model trucks, cars and vans have safety features built in, such as, antilock brakes while most motorcycles lack this feature. This is one of the main reasons they’re trickier to operate, even for the most educated riders. All throughout the United States, the lack of antilock brakes plays a part in a majority of accidents.
There are a lot of extremely qualified car accident lawyers, however, the technological differences between the average automobile and motorcycles make it essential that your personal injury lawyer be qualified in motorcycle accident law.

The Aftermath of a Motorcycle Accident
Due to the fact that motorcycles don’t offer the same protection that a passenger vehicle will, whenever an accident happens, the results will be much more severe than that of a passenger vehicle accident. Other than safety gear and a helmet, there really isn’t much protection to someone that’s riding a motorcycle.
Due to this lack of protection, when a motorcyclist is in an accident they’re at a higher level of vulnerability and risk for:
- Life Threatening Injury
- Serious Injury
- Head Injuries
In the United States, motorcycle accidents are the leading and most prevalent cause of death on the road. Whenever a motorcycle accident occurs and results in a serious injury, victims almost always have to go through extensive and expensive medical procedures and treatments. The majority of motorcycle accident victims will suffer from a head injury, which in and of itself can be very time consuming and costly. If there is brain damage also, a victim’s life can be altered significantly.
Other injuries that will commonly stem from a motorcycle accident will include:
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Road Rash
- Bone Fractures
- Pelvic Damage
After being involved in a motorcycle accident, having an experienced motorcycle accident on your side can be invaluable after all the:
- Costs Incurred
- Exhausting Medical Visits
- Lost Wages

Furthermore, due to the severity of damages when you are in a motorcycle accident, there are multiple instances where victims may suffer wounds that are fatal and leave their loved ones with not just the emotional damage after a tragic death, but also the burden of having to compensate for all of the costs of funeral expenses, burial services and medical bills.
