Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle Riders and Bikers Embody American Values

Patriotic, freedom loving Americans who love the feeling of joy that riding brings to life can rest extremely confident that Shaw Law and Attorney Jeff "JJ"Shaw knows exactly how to deal with the insurance companies representing negligent drivers.

Motorcycle accidents are serious business. Due to the unprotected nature of even the smallest accident, bikers can be severely injured when involved in a crash.

Motorcycle Crashes are Often the Fault of a Left Hand Turning Car

Typically, a passenger car makes a left-hand turn, forcing the biker into a head on crash with the side of a vehicle and launching the rider into the air. Close calls are standard for bikers and not normally the rider's fault. Even pads and helmets do little to protect the motorcycle riders in a freak accident.

Rider experience is also a key factor, however, most accidents take place within 5 months of owning a newer bike, irrespective of how long a biker has been riding. The mischief arising out of these collisions isn't the same as that suffered in an enclosed passenger car with seat-belts and airbags. Injuries can vary from ruptured discs, road rash, a serious brain injury, or even result in loss of life.

The Defense Will Almost Always Argue That the Motorcyclist Caused the Accident

In most motorcycle accidents the defense will argue that the motorcyclist was either speeding or failed to yield the right of way. The simple fact is that motorcycles are more difficult to see than most other vehicles on the road; however, this does not mean that the motorcycle was speeding.

A single headlight at night and the small tail lights often make it difficult for a driver to a see a motorcyclist.

Inability to See the Motorcyclist or Adequately Look Causes Most Crashes With Motorcycles

Seeing a motorcycle can be difficult due to the size of the two-wheeled vehicle. But, this does not absolve all Indiana motorists from carefully searching all mirrors available to see the motorcyclists before proceeding.

The simple truth remains that severe injuries can occur to a motorcyclist due to the lack of the protective metal shell of a car.

It's a wonderful experience riding a motorcycle -- but it can be a dangerous one, too.
