Motorcycle Accidents

The Law Eagles are Advocating for Motorcycle Accident Victims in the San Diego Area

Studies have shown that other vehicles such as cars or trucks are actually the cause of accidents that involve a motorcycle not the motorcycle itself.

As attorneys experienced in litigating motorcycle accident claims we know how a motorcycle accident can impact the victim and their loved ones. Cars and trucks must be observant and aware of motorcyclists and scooters on the road. 

Common causes of these accidents include:

● Inattentive driving

● Defective motorcycles or cars 

● Drunk driving due to alcohol and drug use

● Speeding 

● Disobeying traffic laws

Motorcycle Accident Statistics

Most accidents can be avoided if drivers use caution when on the road. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in August 2019 released motorcycle statistics from 2017:

● 5,172 motorcyclists were killed in accidents involving other vehicles 

● An additional 89,000 motorcyclists were injured in accidents with other cars

● 51% of motorcycle crashes involve a motorcyclist 40 or older

● 37% of all motorcycle fatalities were the result of speeding

● 29% of motorcyclists involved in a fatal crash were driving without a valid license

● 49% of motorcycle accidents involve a motorcyclist under 40

● 37% of motorcyclists killed in accidents were not wearing a helmet

Bikers know the inherent risks of the road and take the necessary precautions to mitigate the risks. Unfortunately, even when they take every available precaution, they cannot mitigate the risk of other negligent drivers. 

If you or a loved one have been injured call the Law Eagles day or night to set up your no risk consultation.

What to Do After a Motorcycle Accident

Many motorcyclists don’t know what to do or where to get help after an accident. Getting prompt medical attention and legal advice is one of the best things you can do. Some of our attorneys are motorcycle riders themselves so we intimately understand the risks and precautions taken by motorcycle riders, how suddenly an accident can occur and how devastating the injuries can be. 

We see the road the way you do and can use that knowledge to help you in your case. If you or a loved one have been injured call the Law Eagles day or night to set up your no risk consultation.
