Jacksonville Motorcycle Accident Lawyer
Were You Seriously Injured on the Road?
Motorcycles offer riders an exhilarating alternative to a traditional automobile, leading millions of people to choose two wheels over four. While these vehicles offer people new levels of freedom, they offer almost no protection in an accident. Being hit by a car while protected by the countless safety features offered in a typical vehicle is dangerous enough, but being hit by a car while completely exposed can quickly turn a serious crash into a fatal one.

Riding a motorcycle is generally more difficult and requires more constant concentration than driving a car. Consequently, riders will often pay closer attention to road conditions and the vehicles around them. Cars provide an insulated environment, and with automatic transmissions and cruise control, it is easy for a driver's attention to drift, as in using a cell phone for texting. A large percentage of car accidents and drunk driving accidents involving motorcycles are the fault of the driver, such as for failing to check blind spots before changing lanes, not using turn signals or braking too late at a red light.
Representing the Rights of Injured Motorcyclists
When cars and motorcycles are involved in accidents, it is nearly always the rider who suffers the greatest injuries. The bike has no seat belts, airbags or steel chassis to protect the rider, and it is not designed to sustain a crash in the ways that a car is. Rider ejection is a major cause of injuries including road rash, spinal cord injuries, broken bones and brain injuries, especially when the rider is propelled into a tree, wall or other solid object. If another person was responsible for the accident, you deserve to receive a settlement as early as possible. You should not take any chances with your claim-let us begin work to help you seek compensation today.
