Motorcycle Accidents


Motorcycle riders face the possibility of serious bodily injury when a motorcycle collision occurs, because they lack the protection those in cars are afforded.
There are a number of reasons a motorcycle accident can occur that are no fault of your own. A few of the main causes include failure to yield, left hand turn accidents, failure to obey a stop sign, running a red light, negligent drivers, drinking while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, hit and run, side swipes, passing, automobile design defects, hazardous roads, driving too fast.
If you have been involved in a motorcycle accident, you should contact a Lowndes County motorcycle accident attorney.
Serious motorcycle accidents are much different from car crashes because the injuries are generally more serious. Some common motorcycle accident injuries include traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, spinal cord injury, herniated discs, neck injury, lacerations, brain injury and even wrongful death. Not only do motorcycle accident victims find themselves with physical pain, there can be emotional pain, and financial hardships that result because of the accident. Even with good medical coverage and health insurance, the expenses related to a motorcycle accident add up very quickly. When the motorcycle accident happened through no fault of your own, you are entitled to compensation. Insurance companies are not in the business of making sure your interests are looked after. The bottom line is that they are a business and their goal is to reduce their claim payout. While they claim to be looking out for your best interests, unless you have a lawyer, your settlement could be far less than it should be.
