We Are Local

Riding a motorcycle can be both ecologically and economically wise. Motorcyclists usually end up paying less at the gas pump than people who drive passenger vehicles while also leaving a smaller carbon footprint. However, as wallet-friendly and green as riding a bike may be, motorcyclists face hazards that car and truck drivers do not. Because of their small size and lack of sturdy steel enclosures, motorcycles and their riders are more vulnerable than passenger vehicle occupants in the event of a road collision. While someone in a car has the benefit of airbags and seatbelts, a motorcyclist is left with the clothes on their back and the helmet on their head as their sole protection in the event of an accident. If you were injured in a motorcycle accident, contact the expert motorcycle accident attorneys at Russell & Hill, PLLC for a consultation today.

Recovery can be costly and time-consuming

Recovering from serious injuries is not only a painful process, it can also be expensive, and the road to recovery may be a long one—if indeed a full recovery can be made at all. Some accident victims are left permanently disabled after the crash, leaving them unable to return to work to earn a wage. The costs of medical care and treatment can be astronomical, resulting in financial strain being added to the already-massive burden the injury victim bears. However, accident victims can seek to recover damages from the party that was liable for their injuries by taking legal action in civil court.

Negligent drivers are common on the roadways

All too many passenger vehicle drivers are negligent when it comes to sharing the roads with motorcyclists. Tragic accidents could be prevented by double-checking a blind spot before merging, but drivers often fail to do this—and the results can be devastating. Distracted drivers, speeding drivers, and drivers who fail to stop at stop signs or red lights are all engaging in negligence, which means that they can be held legally liable for any damages to persons or property resulting from their poor driving.

Motorcycle accident statistics and facts

The Insurance Information Institute reported that, despite strict helmet laws in the majority of states in the US, only 65 percent of motorcyclists reported using helmets while riding. In 2016, more than 5,200 motorcyclists were killed in fatal accidents, and it is estimated that 88,000 or more bikers were injured in 2015.
