A Great Ride Gone Wrong? Let An Experienced Lexington Attorney Help You.
Motorcycles are meant for easing stress and enjoying the road on a beautiful day. Unfortunately, the road is not always a carefree place. The subtlest movement or sudden stop by another driver can lead to disaster – a destroyed motorcycle, immense pain and expensive medical visits.

Factors That Influence Motorcycle Accidents
According to the United States Department of Transportation, roughly 65% of motorcycle accidents involving another vehicle were preventable if only the other vehicle abided by the motorcyclist’s right of way. Accidents like these are often due to the size of the motorcycle. For instance, drivers who are not careful in left-hand turns or in passing motorists will likely not see the motorcycle. The results can be catastrophic, as a motorcyclist is much more likely to die in an accident than a passenger in a standard vehicle.
These accidents are not always due to another driver. Factors such as road hazards and poor motorcycle performance due to faulty parts can also put the life of the rider at risk. At which point, a manufacturer or possible government group may be at fault.
It Happens Fast, But The Damages Are Long-Term
Motorcycle accidents happen in the blink of an eye. But the details surrounding that small moment can make for a complicated case. You need an attorney who will set your case apart. My experience both in varying accident types and as an attorney seeing cases in large and small firms allows me to approach my client’s case with a dynamic perspective. The pain may be long term, but financial stress does not have to be.
