Motorcycle Accidents

Because motorcycles themselves provide virtually no protection in a crash, motor cycle accidents have a much higher rate of serious injuries or fatalities when compared with automobiles. Injuries from motorcycle accidents can occur in various ways:

  • Collisions with roadside fixtures such as lampposts, poles, signs and fences, which can often result from poor road design and engineering
  • Concussion and brain damage, the risk of which can be substantially reduced through the use of a standards-approved headgear
  • Broken or fractured bones and joints, including shoulder, pelvis, elbows, hips, knees and wrists
  • "Biker’s arm", in which the nerves in the upper arm are damaged, resulting in permanent paralysis
  • Facial disfigurement and damage to skin and muscle tissue (“road rash”)
One of the leading causes of motorcycle accidents is the failure of other motorists to see or observe motorcycles in traffic, because motorcycles can be less conspicuous, or more difficult to see, than other types of vehicles. “I didn’t see him,” is an excuse heard all too often following a motorcycle crash.

Truck accidents

When a truck comes into contact with an automobile, the car always loses.

Trucks are many times larger and heavier than automobiles. They are less maneuverable–a truck driver cannot speed up, slow down or turn as quickly and as easily as an automobile. Yet they share the same road. That is why it is particularly important for truck drivers to follow the principles of defensive driving–to foresee and guard against the possibility of coming into contact with other drivers and vehicles on the road.

Because their size and weight makes them more dangerous than other motor vehicles, commercial trucks and their drivers must meet higher standards for training, licensing and insurance than operators of other vehicles. Unfortunately, enforcement of already existing standards and regulations is not always strict, and critics say that even existing standards under a federal administration that favors deregulation are not strict enough.

Truck accident cases can also involve legally complicated questions about whether a trucking company is liable for the negligence of its so-called "independent" owner-operator. Even though they are required to carry much higher levels of insurance than other vehicles, commercial trucks are often not covered with sufficient levels of insurance to provide coverage and protection for the extremely serious injuries they can cause. That is why an in-depth knowledge and experience of trucking regulations and trucking law can be the key to making a successful recovery against not only the truck and driver, but also others who are legally responsible for them.

If you have been injured as a result of a truck accident, please call us directly for a free consultation. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
