Motorcycle Accident

Due to the increased vulnerability of motorcyclists, motorcycle accidents are commonly catastrophic events.


In fact, 80 percent of all cyclists involved in an accident suffer some type of personal injury. According to official estimates, approximately 50,000 people are injured in motorcycle accidents every year in the United States. Of these riders, 3,000 will die in motorcycle accidents annually. For those who survive these dangerous accidents, the consequences are often devastating.

If you or a loved one has suffered serious injury or death in a motorcycle accident, you may be able to seek compensation with the help of a qualified motorcycle accident attorney like those at Kuvara Law Firm. In order to seek compensation in a legal case, it is necessary to prove that the other party involved was somehow responsible for the accident.

For example, was the other driver speeding, driving recklessly, in violation of vehicle codes, under the influence of alcohol or drugs, failing to pay adequate attention to the road and environment, or otherwise acting wrongfully or negligently? While you may not know all the answers to these questions, an experienced motorcycle accident attorney can look for these factors when determining liability in your motorcycle accident case.

Motorcycle accidents are commonly the cause of serious injury and death. In fact, victims of motorcycle accidents are 26 times more likely to be killed in a crash than motor vehicle occupants. Motorcycles are more vulnerable on the road because they are smaller, less protected, and more easily overlooked. Other drivers may be unaware of how to safely share the road with motorcyclists and their negligence can result in devastating motorcycle accidents.

In addition to the liability of other drivers, it is also possible for other parties to be culpable for motorcycle accidents. For example, if improperly maintained roads or unsafe vehicle conditions played a role in the accident, highway officials may be found negligent. If a motorcycle accident was the result of a defective auto or cycle part, the makers or repairers of the motorcycle may be held responsible.

If another party´s recklessness, negligence or other wrongdoing results in motorcycle accidents, the victim and/or his loved ones may be eligible to seek reparation. It is important to bear in mind that cases involving motorcycle accidents are subject to a statute of limitations. This statute restricts the time you have to file a claim. For this reason, it is wise to confer with a motorcycle accident attorney soon to protect your legal rights.

Through a motorcycle accident case, you can seek compensation for damages including medical expenses, property damage, loss of income or earning potential, and other out-of-pocket losses. In addition, you may also receive a large compensatory sum for your pain and suffering including disability, mental anguish, loss of companionship, and more.

There are different laws that apply to motorcycle accidents depending on the circumstances of the accident and the jurisdiction in which the accident took place.
