How Accidents Happen and the Aftermath
In many instances, the driver of a car or truck is unaware that they are sharing the road with a motorcyclist. This is why it is so important for all drivers to be very observant and more important for motorcyclists to be vigilant on the roads. A vehicle may change lanes without noticing a motorcycle, colliding with it and either knocking the motorcyclist off balance or sending the motorcyclist and motorcycle flying. This is extremely dangerous, as the impact can cause catastrophic injuries and even death.
After the accident, you will inevitably have to deal with an insurance company, whether your own or the other driver’s insurer. We understand how insurance companies may put the blame back on the motorcycle rider, saying they knew the risks when they rode. However, every driver is subjected to the applicable laws and is responsible for safe operation of their vehicle. Just because someone is on a motorcycle does not automatically make them responsible in an accident. Our firm fights back against insurance companies.
