If you or someone you know has been injured in a motorcycle accident, it is extremely important to seek professional advice and immediate assistance from a knowledgeable, experienced motorcycle attorney. The law offices of Robert A.Garcin and our highly skilled staff have many years of experience handling this specialized area of law. Injuries sustained by motorcycle riders are compounded by the fact that there is little protection between the rider and the road or the other vehicles in the crash. There are many causes of motorcycle accidents, as there are various reasons for automobile accidents. However, the motorcycle and operator are more vulnerable to some additional hazards in traffic, such as road rage, poor visibility, unsafe or poorly maintained road surfaces, or motorcycle manufacturer defects.
There are millions of motorcycles on the roads today operated by highly capable, responsible riders. The increasing number of cycles being used for daily commuting and non-recreational transportation has given rise to an unfortunate increase in the number of personal injuries sustained by motorcyclists in traffic accidents. Consider the following data released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration:
- There are over 7,000,000 motorcycles registered in the U.S.
- In 2008 there were 5,290 motorcyclist fatalities.
- 96,000 motorcyclists were injured in 2008.
- Motorcyclists are nine times more likely than passenger car occupants to be injured in a motor vehicle crash.
