Given the nature of motorcycle accidents, victims involved are far more likely to be seriously injured as compared to a typical car accident. Motorcycles are often less visible than their car counterparts. Motorcycles also have fewer safety features than automobiles which lead to an increased risk of sustaining a serious head trauma or even result in a fatality for anyone who may be involved in a motorcycle accident.
Even when riders have taken every precaution, they may find themselves involved in a serious motorcycle accident due to another driver’s carelessness which could result in serious injury. All of the attorneys at Vanderpool Law Firm have a motorcycle endorsement and understand the particular dangers and causes associated with motorcycle accidents.
