Motorcyclists More Likely to Die in Crash

by | May 16th, 2016

There’s a certain level of risk that all motorcyclists take when getting out on the road. Motorcycles can be extremely dangerous if not operated correctly, and many accidents occur due to rider error. However, the risks extend well beyond the rider’s ability to properly handle their bike. In fact, we’d propose that Norfolk riders are at greater danger of being hit by another driver than laying the bike down on their own, and when that happens, the results can be devastating.

According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, motorcyclists are 26 time more likely to die in a crash than car drivers and 5 times more likely to be injured. That statistic has unfortunately become a reality for many Norfolk motorcyclists and their families over the years, and several of them have turned to us to protect their rights to compensation. Motorcycle accident injury claims can be complicated. We have years of experience successfully navigating those complexities for our clients to get them maximum compensation for their injuries.

If you or someone you love has been injured in a motorcycle accident, call our Norfolk motorcycle accident attorneys today for a free consultation. The insurance company has a responsibility to pay you fair compensation for your injuries, and we’ll work to make sure they live up to that responsibly.
