Hancock County Motorcycle Accident Attorney

It’s no secret that motorcycles are dangerous. Most cyclists know this danger when they decide to operate a motorcycle. But, what many don’t know is that a lot of accidents involving motorcycles are not caused by the cyclists themselves, but others on the road.

Some drivers on the road are not aware of certain aspects of motorcycles on the road

  • It can be difficult to judge the speed of a motorcycle due to its small size
  • Turn signals are not automatic, so it is important to not trust a cyclist’s turn signal
  • Motorcycles can easily slip into a vehicle’s blind spot
  • Minor annoyances and road conditions can be major disturbances for a motorcyclist
  • Increased following distance of 3 to 4 seconds is necessary when behind a motorcycle

The injuries that come with motorcycle injuries are as small as a broken bone and as serious as brain or spinal cord injury. With accidents causing permanent damage and life-altering conditions, it is important for all drivers to be knowledgeable of the danger they pose if they do not pay proper attention to motorcyclists.

Filing a Motorcycle Accident Claim

You can file a claim if you were involved in a motorcycle accident and were not deemed the at-fault driver.

If you were operating the motorcycle when the accident occurred, and another driver on the road caused the accident, you are able to file a claim. You can also file a claim if you were a passenger on the motorcycle during the accident.

If the at-fault driver of the accident was the operator of the motorcycle and you were a passenger on the motorcycle at the time, you can file a claim against the motorcycle operator.

If your loved one was either the operator or passenger of the motorcycle and was killed in an accident, they are able to file a wrongful death claim, if the deceased was not at-fault.
