Ask a motorcyclist why he or she rides, and the answer may paint a romantic picture– the wind, the skill, the sound of their bikes. Or maybe they ride because of rising fuel costs. Unfortunately, motorcyclists are 25 times more likely to be involved in a fatal accident than people in cars. The most recent statistics revealed that 11 percent of all roadway accidents in the US involve motorcycles.
Another client was hit by a car that accelerated off the shoulder into the path of the motorcycle, causing our client to swerve off the road and into a tree. The injured man retained our firm immediately, and we were able to preserve the evidence within a day of the accident. Two experienced accident reconstructionists hired by our firm sorted out the facts. When informed of the information, the defense’s insurance company settled promptly.
