Motorcycle Accident Lawyers

Motorcycles don’t share the same structural protection as automobiles. Since many other drivers tend not to notice motorcycles until too late, motorcycle riders and passengers are particularly at risk of serious injuries. 

You deserve peace of mind from having an experienced motorcycle accident lawyer help you understand your rights and options after an accident. With Ramos Law, you’ll have the security of knowing we have helped countless clients following a motorcycle accident.

After experiencing a motorcycle accident, injured bikers and their loved ones usually encounter challenging issues, including:

  • Often severe to catastrophic injuries
  • Inadequate insurance to pay for medical expenses
  • Bias towards motorcyclists by insurance claims adjusters, police investigators, and others who evaluate, advise or aid in recovery

Motorcycle Crash Injuries

Motorcyclists can suffer from life-changing injuries in a crash. Unfortunately, the biker almost always loses the contest between a three-ton car and a much smaller motorcycle.

The most common motorcycle injuries include:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Brain trauma
  • Head injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Broken bones
  • Soft tissue damage
  • Ongoing back and neck pain

Even a relatively minor motorcycle accident could result in a lifetime of pain and suffering, along with thousands of dollars in medical bills.

Motorcycle Fatal Crash Statistics

Large vehicles surround motorcycle riders on the road. The varying sizes could turn even a relatively minor accident deadly. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported 5,579 motorcycle fatalities in 2020, accounting for 14% of all national traffic fatalities. Further, the number of motorcyclist fatalities in 2020 increased by 11% compared to 2019, from 5,044 to 5,579.

In addition, motorcyclist fatalities occurred nearly 28 times more frequently than passenger car occupant fatalities per vehicle miles traveled. Riders and drivers must work together to make the roads safer for everyone. [1]

Alcohol-Related Fatalities

The irresponsibility and recklessness of drivers can result in devastating wrecks. The point of impairment (whether the person feels or appears intoxicated) is a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level of 0.08. Drunk drivers are responsible for thousands of deaths across the country despite these thresholds.

According to the NHTSA 2020 report, alcohol-impaired driving fatalities increased by 14% from 2019 to 2020, accounting for 30% of all fatalities. The number of motorcyclists involved in alcohol-impaired fatalities increased by 4.4% from 2019 to 2020, totaling 1,526 bikers. [2]

Motorcycle Accident Frequently Asked Questions

Motorcycle helmet use laws vary from one state to the next. Even if you weren’t wearing a helmet, you still have the legal right to seek compensation for your injuries. However, the insurance company may attempt to lower your settlement simply because you were not wearing a helmet. Therefore, it is all the more crucial that you have a qualified lawyer on your side.

Oil spills, potholes, gravel, and other foreign objects can cause a motorcycle accident, regardless of rider experience. You might have a shorter claim filing period if the city, county, or state was at fault for the road defect or foreign substance. Therefore, you must speak to a motorcycle accident lawyer as quickly as possible to help determine who is at fault after an accident.

The fact that you didn’t have a motorcycle license during your accident does not prevent you from making a claim.

A skilled motorcycle injury attorney can help you recover the compensation you deserve. Don’t wait – evidence could disappear, and witnesses may forget crucial facts. Any delay could weaken your case and lower your opportunity for fair compensation. At Ramos Law, we have the resources to launch a prompt investigation.
