There is a freedom and thrill that comes with riding a motorcycle. It's a combination of exhilaration, fear, relaxation, and pleasure all rolled into one. It allows you to experience your surroundings in a way that no other form of transportation can.
However, what it also is, is dangerous. Motorcycle accidents, though not necessarily more frequent than other types of accidents, are more likely to result in serious injury or death. Luckily, bikes are equipped with the best possible tools to avoid crashing – powerful brakes, obstruction-free vision, excellent handling – but accidents do still occur frequently. In fact, according to the federal government, per mile traveled, there were 35 times more deaths from motorcycle accidents than from car accidents in recent years.
As attorneys, we have also seen just how serious motorcycle accidents can be. Motorcycle accidents can result in serious consequences, including brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and more. These injuries can be life changing and may require a lifetime of medical treatment that can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.
