Helping West Virginia motorcycle victims protect their rights

With spring now in full swing, it is more likely for motorists in West Virginia to encounter motorcycles on the roadway. While it is not uncommon to share the road with motorcyclists, it is possible for these small vehicles to go unnoticed at times. Drivers of larger automobiles may not see a biker nearby due to a blind spot. Additionally, motorists often find it difficult to gauge the speed and distance of motorcyclists due to their small profile. This often leads to collisions because motorists often believe they have enough time to turn in front of a biker.

The negligence of other motorists can frequently be the cause of a serious or even fatal motorcycle crash. Unlike other automobile collisions, motorcycles do not offer a hard exterior shell. Because of that, riders frequently suffer catastrophic injuries following a motorcycle accident. While helmets and protective clothing can help reduce and prevent some injuries from occurring, these measures do not always prevent an accident victim from serious injuries such as a head trauma or a broken bone.

At our law firm, we attempt to help those harmed in accidents caused by the negligence and recklessness of other parties. A motorcycle accident often results in pain and suffering, requiring a victim to undergo medical care. This not only means a long road towards recovery, but could also mean medical bills accumulating. Our law firm understands that the hardships experienced following a motorcycle crash can be tremendous. We attempt to use our skills and resources to help our clients navigate their legal action, helping them hold a negligent driver liable.

To learn more, please visit our law firm's motorcycle accident website. Whether a driver's failure to yield, speeding or failure to check their blind spots resulted in a collision, it is important to take the necessary steps to understand what recourses are available to injured victims. This could help victims protect their rights and act in their best interests.
