Over the last few years, motorcycles have gained popularity among consumers because of rising gas prices. Unfortunately, the savings gained on gas also result in a decrease in personal safety. In many cases, the driver of the motorcycle is not to blame for the accident. Seeking the assistance of an experienced motorcycle accident attorney is very important if you have been injured in a motorcycle accident.
Because of their size, motorcycles and their riders often do not get the respect they deserve on the road. Many drivers overlook them and do not understand that motorcycle drivers have the same rights to the road as other automobiles. This leads to an increase in accidents. Tragically, many of these motorcycle accidents leave the victims severely injured, paralyzed, or fatally wounded.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that there were 5,290 motorcycle accident fatalities in the year 2008. There were also close to 100,000 non-fatal motorcycle accident-related injuries. This number has continued to rise for 11 consecutive years.
