Facts About Motorcycle Accidents That You Need to Know

Table of Contents

It’s a fact that motorcycle accidents are some of the deadliest traffic accidents out there, but there are other facts about motorcycle accidents that you should know if you – or someone whom you love – rides. If another motorist’s negligence leaves you injured in a motorcycle accident, turn to an experienced Columbus, Ohio motorcycle accident attorney for professional legal counsel. 

Strictly the Facts

There are four primary facts related to motorcycle accidents that you should know and understand. 

One: A Very Large Number of Motorcycle Accidents Happen in Intersections

If you ride, you are more vulnerable in intersections, which means you should always proceed with caution.

Two: Your Chances of Being Killed in a Motorcycle Accident are 27 Times Greater than They Are in a Car Accident

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) confirms this terrifying fact. Simply put, the lack of extra protection afforded by a car or other motor vehicle puts riders at great risk in the event of an accident.

Three: Wearing a Helmet Greatly Improves Your Chances of Survival

If you ride, make it your practice to wear a helmet. This small step could save your life, and it can also help decrease the severity of a head injury (if you do survive the accident’s immense impact).

Four: Alcohol Plays Far Too Significant a Role in Single-Vehicle Motorcycle Accidents

You know that it isn’t safe to drink and drive, and this is just as true for your motorcycle as it is for your car.    

The motorcycle accident attorneys at Babin Law, LLC, in Columbus, Ohio have experience in handling motorcycle accident cases, so do not wait to contact or call us at 833-SURVIVORS to see if we are able to take on your case. 

How much compensation can I seek?

You can seek compensation from the at-fault motorist’s insurance company that covers your physical, financial, and emotional damages in their entirety.  

Should I accept the insurance company’s initial settlement offer?

The insurance company is invested in settling for as little as it can possibly get away with, which makes it a good idea to consult with an experienced motorcycle accident attorney before accepting an offer.

How do I prove the other driver’s fault?

Proving fault is a complicated legal endeavor that is best left to your dedicated motorcycle accident attorney.
