Salt Lake City Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Committed To Protecting Your Rights As A Motorcyclist
Riding a motorcycle can be thrilling, which is generally accompanied by danger. Drivers of larger vehicles can take for granted the protection of their car, truck or bus, and sometimes fail to recognize that motorcyclists have the same rights. Motorcyclists become vulnerable to accidents, injuries and even death when denied the right to a full lane on a highway or adequate road conditions.
According to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), the rate of motorcycle accident fatalities is more than five times the rate of car accident fatalities. If other drivers allowed motorcyclists the rights they deserve, many accidents involving motorcycles could have been avoided.
The motorcycle accident attorneys at Larsen, Larsen, Nash & Larsen are backed by an experienced personal injury law firm. We will fight for clients injured in accidents resulting from negligence or failure to observe motorcyclist rights. We work to get our clients substantial compensation for medical bill coverage, lost wages, property/vehicle repair or replacement, and payment for additional pain and suffering.
What Causes Motorcycle Accidents?
Distracted driving or fatigue, reckless behavior, inclement weather, etc. are the same factors that put any vehicle at risk. Unfortunately, the risk is greater when a motorcycle is involved. More negligent factors, that are particularly hazardous to motorcyclists include the following:
- Lack of Visibility – Motorcycles are more difficult to see and can be entirely hidden in blind spots.
- Speeding – Serious, even catastrophic injury can result from the greater risk caused by surpassing the speed limits.
- Bad Road Conditions – 26 percent of fatal motorcycle accidents are due to fluid spills, uneven pavement, trash or debris that are found on poorly maintained roads (NHTSA). Obviously, these conditions have a more serious effect on motorcycles than other motorists.
