Legal Aid for Motorcycle Accident Victims

By Smith & Stallworth  Feb. 4, 2011 11:02p

The freedom, thrills, reduced cost and fun of a motorcycle is what usually brings a person to own and operate a motorcycle. Unfortunately, motorcycles offer very little protection to the rider with the exception of protective riding gear such as a helmet, gloves, boots and a jacket that the rider may be wearing. This protection is nowhere near sufficient enough for when another vehicle impacts with the motorcycle, placing the rider in an extremely dangerous position, often resulting in very serious and violent injuries including broken bones, burns, dismemberment and brain or spinal cord injuries. In all too many cases, motorcycle accidents can result in fatalities. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a motorcycle accident, a Tampa personal injury attorney can assist you in filing a claim against the driver or person responsible for causing the accident.

One of the most common causes of motorcycle accidents is a larger vehicle entering the lane of a motorcycle and violating the rider's right of way, causing an often extremely forceful collision that can throw riders from their bikes. Other causes can include faulty mechanical parts, malfunctioning products such as tires or safety equipment, and even potential hazards left in the road by other drivers or individuals. With the immediate assistance of a lawyer, you can have your accident investigated with your interests in mind, giving you your best chance at fighting for compensation from the person or business liable for your injuries and the damage to your property.
