Motorcycle Accidents

A recent study found that drivers of cars or trucks — not motorcyclists — are the cause of most motorcycle accidents involving more than just the bike.

As lawyers, we know how devastating a motorcycle accident can be. Drivers of other vehicles must be extremely careful when sharing the road with motorcycles or scooters.

Common Causes Of Motorcycle Accidents

The most common causes of these accidents include:

  • Inattentive driving
  • Speeding
  • Alcohol or drug use
  • Disobeying traffic laws
  • Defective motorcycle or vehicle

All bikers know the risks on the road, and most take safety precautions to avoid an accident. Sadly, even when bikers make sure all safety measures are in place, they cannot prevent the actions of a negligent car or truck driver.

If you or a loved one has been injured in serious motorcycle accident, call the experienced motorcycle injury attorneys at The Barnes Firm or contact us for a free case evaluation.

What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident

Several of our motorcycle accident attorneys ride motorcycles themselves. So we understand first-hand how quickly a motorcycle accident can happen, and how unexpected the injuries can be.
