Cedar Rapids Motorcycle Accident Attorneys
Proficient & Personalized Legal Representation Fighting for You
Though young men and women often have the mindset that they are invincible, seasoned motorcycle riders know better. Motorcycle riders are much more susceptible to personal injuries than other motorists due to a lack of protection from automobiles. When a rider loses control or collides with another motorist, their bodies are usually directly struck by the full force and momentum of the automobile or foreign object.
While auto accidents are still dangerous, there is a greater level of protection because car materials will disperse the force of a foreign object before colliding with the driver or passengers.
Despite numerous safety measures, motorcycle accidents happen all the time. The CDC recorded 225,234 individuals that sustained personal injuries due to motorcycle accidents in 2013 alone. On average, that’s approximately 617 motorcycle accidents per day. Even small accidents that don’t cause permanent injuries need to be taken seriously. The negligence of another motorist can cause property damage and expensive healthcare expenses. No matter how big or small your motorcycle accident is, you need to seek the help of a qualified attorney to fight for the compensation you are entitled to.
It simply isn’t fair to let a negligible driver threaten your health and finances. Motorcycle riders of all experience levels take great care in keeping their eyes on the road to avoid potholes, slick spots, and erratic drivers. Unfortunately, despite numerous precautions, some auto drivers fail to see motorcycles on the road and carelessly cause serious personal injuries.
