Motorcycles are great for getting about town, taking a road trip, or simply enjoying the open road. Yet, their small size, light weight, and reduced safety protections leave their riders and passengers more susceptible to severe injury or death in the event of a motorcycle crash.
Successful Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
When you or a loved one has been involved in a motorcycle accident, you need a motorcycle accident attorney who knows how to protect the rights of motorcyclists and their passengers. You need a lawyer who understands how motorcycle accidents should be investigated, and how different parties – drivers, their employers, manufacturers, insurance companies, and others – must be held accountable for their negligence or legal obligations. The attorneys at Whiting Law Group are the motor accident lawyers you need.
Motorcycles Require Extra Protection
Motorcycles are less stable and less visible than cars, minivans, buses, and trucks. When a motorcyclist crashes, the motorcyclist and motorcycle passengers lacks the protection of an enclosed vehicle increasing the likelihood that the rider or passenger will be severely injured or even killed.
According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, there were 5,286 motorcyclists killed in crashes in 2016. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that per mile traveled in 2015, the number of deaths on motorcycles was nearly 28 times the number in cars. Motorcycle deaths accounted for 14 percent of all motor vehicle crash deaths in 2016, while representing only 3 percent of the entire registered motor vehicle fleet.
While there have been efforts to make the roads safer for motorcyclists, there is still a substantial danger to every motorcycle rider from the larger vehicles they share the road with every day. As motorcycle accident attorneys, we are committed to improving road safety for motorcycles.
Securing Evidence is Vital to Case Success
In every motorcycle collision where someone is significantly hurt, harmed, or killed, it is essential that all evidence be quickly and properly recorded and preserved. It is imperative that the details and surrounding circumstances of the crash be thoroughly investigated. Of course, where there is a legal case to pursue justice based on the negligence of others, it is paramount that a suit be filed prior to deadline imposed by the statute of limitations.
