Offering Compassionate and Skilled Legal Guidance
Few other traumas have the potential to change your life like a motorcycle accident. Even when they have appropriate riding gear and take care to observe the rules of the road, motorcycle drivers are simply more exposed than other vehicle drivers. In fact, the Governor’s Highway Safety Association (GHSA) found that in 2016, motorcyclists were 28 times more likely to suffer a fatality than drivers of vehicles.

Understanding the Logistics of a Motorcycle Accident Case
In North Carolina, negligent drivers can be held financially liable for your injuries, and all are required to carry mandatory minimum levels of car insurance. This means that, in most cases, you will be working with an insurance company to secure a settlement rather than filing a lawsuit against the negligent party.
As simple as this may sound, it can be quite difficult to get appropriate compensation in a motorcycle accident case. Vehicle drivers may not select higher coverage levels that are often required for traumatic motorcycle crashes. So, no matter what type of vehicle you drive, it’s most important to hire a skilled attorney who can thoroughly investigate an accident.
Some of the most common causes for motorcycle accidents include:
- Drunk drivers,
- Low visibility,
- Defective motorcycle parts,
- Distracted drivers,
- Inadequate signaling methods,
- Dangerous roads,
- Dim and/or absent headlights or taillights,
- Inexperienced drivers,
- Speeding, and
- Road rage.
