Motorcyclists face a large number of disadvantages on the road. They have very few safety features to protect riders in the event of an accident, and because they are so small, cars often do not see them. This means that with even the slightest distraction, there is a strong chance of motorcyclists being the victims in an accident through no fault of their own. Such an accident could easily leave the motorcyclist with life-altering injuries, and they could even be fatal.
Despite this, motorcyclists are often stereotyped as risk-takers who find themselves in accidents because of their reckless driving. Because of this, motorcyclists may find that they have a hard time proving they were the victims in an accident, which is why legal assistance is so important. Our motorcycle accident webpage details our 60+ years of combined experience in motorcycle accidents. Virginia residents are encouraged to set up a free consultation to see what their options are moving forward with the case.
Of course to discuss the aspects of your case, you must have as much knowledge as possible about the circumstances of the accident. It is in your best interests to take stock of the scene of the accident, including types of vehicles, position on the road and collection of eyewitness testimony. Unfortunately, another disadvantage of motorcyclists is that if you are thrown from your motorcycle, your injuries could be so severe that you are unable to investigate the accident in-depth.
