COMMON CAUSES OF MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS
Even when there are laws in place to protect motorcyclists, accidents still occur. These usually happen because motorists are negligent in keeping an eye out for motorcyclists, especially when changing lanes or at night.
Some of the leading causes of motorcycle crashes include:
- Dangerous lane changes, especially when motorists fail to check their blind spots or use a signal
- Drunk driving is an epidemic all across the country, and has claimed countless lives
- Excessive speeding is a bad habit that can delay reactions and cause serious injuries
- Motorcycle defects such as defetctive brakes and other parts can put the rider in danger
OUR FIRM FIGHTS FOR YOUR RIGHT TO COMPENSATION
The recovery from a motorcycle accident can be long and strenuous, and you are entitled to compensation for your injuries. Your spouse may even be entitled to compensation due to loss of support. However, insurance companies often automatically offer to settle with the lowest amount possible. They are depending on your need to settle the claim right away and you should always watch out for this tactic.
In addition, your injuries may become compounded and progressively worse as time goes on. The insurance companies are obligated to anticipate this, but often try to ignore it to protect their bottom line. Attempting to fight for this compensation from the insurance companies on your own can be an uphill battle. Let our Fayetteville personal injury lawyers protect your interests.
