The causes of motorcycle accidents often are the result of negligence or carelessness of other drivers. For example, another driver may be speeding or texting while driving and collide with someone on a motorcycle.
Reports indicate that about two-thirds of all accidents involving a motorcycle and another vehicle are a result of a driver turning into the lane of a motorcycle and violating the rider's right of way.
If you or a loved one has been injured on a motorcycle because of another party's negligence, our attorneys at Flager & Yockey, P.C. can represent your interests so you get the full compensation you deserve. No matter what the cause of your motorcycle accident was, you deserve a strong advocate on your side. You deserve justice. We can help.
Flager & Yockey, P.C. have represented motorcycle riders who suffered injuries in Pennsylvania and New Jersey because of the negligent and irresponsible behavior of drunk drivers. Unfortunately, motorcycle riders rarely walk away from a serious accident unscathed, even if they wear protective safety gear and helmets.
Motorcycle riders should keep safety in mind. The motorcyclist's negligence is another common cause of motorcycle accidents. In accidents not involving another vehicle, a motorcycle rider who fails to slow down while negotiating a corner, or under-corners or over-brakes may cause the accident. After the accident, fuel leakage and spills can create a fire hazard and possibly cause burn injuries to the rider or passenger.
In extreme cases, severe injuries lead to the death of the rider. Motorcycle rider fatalities have been on the rise for some time. Between 1997 and 2008, rider deaths increased by 150 percent, from 2,116 to 5,290, according to U.S. Department of Transportation's Fatality Analysis Reporting System.
In 2008, deaths from motorcycle crashes rose by 2.2 percent while all other vehicle classes saw a drop in fatalities. Studies suggest that motorcyclists are 27 times more likely to die in a collision than the occupants of the other vehicle. Motorcyclists are five times more likely to sustain some injury.
