Need an accient laywer, NH? Motorcycles are less stable and less visible than cars. For that reason, they are more likely to be in a crash. Therefore, it is not surprising to learn that according to the NHTSA the fatality rate for motorcyclists in 2006 was 5.5 times the fatality rate for passenger car occupants. While motorcycles account for only 3% of all registered motor vehicles and 0.4% of vehicle miles traveled in 2006, 4810 people died in motorcycle accidents in 2006. According to the NHTSA, motorcycle drivers and their passengers are more exposed, and thus they are more likely to suffer general bodily injury, head injury and more serious injuries than a comparable impact involving automobiles. It makes sense then to know that when motorcyclists are injured, through no fault of their own, they are typically awarded higher damages as a result of their high medical bills, extensive pain and suffering and the lost wages they incur.
That said, even when a claim is valid, motorcyclists face the obstacle of prejudice and the public perception that they are reckless drivers. This means it is all the more important that if you or your loved one is hurt as a result of a motorcycle accident, you seek the assistance of a personal injury attorney and accident lawyer as soon as possible in order to maximize the chances for success in obtaining all the compensation to which you are entitled.
